Remote learning? Homeschooling? Just need some extra help? We've got this!

I have been a teacher or tutor for 20 years. As a teacher, I taught mostly bilingual 4th grade, but I've taught students from pre-K though adult. I have a B.A. in Elementary Education, a minor in Spanish, and a M.S. in Literacy.

I love travel, culture, and helping others succeed. I'm remote myself, so meet me for online lessons, and let's get you where you need to be!

Hello! If you are looking for some English help, I'd love to be your guide. The majority of my teaching experience has been in bilingual/ESL education. As a teacher and tutor I've worked many years with 4th grade bilingual students, a few years as a teacher for adult ESL classes, and a few years as a personal tutor for Adult English language students. My second language is Spanish, which has been helpful for native Spanish speakers learning English, as well as giving me personal insight into learning a second language, that I am able to incorporate into my teaching.

I taught bilingual students in the Valley View School district for 9 years and taught Spanish to the 2nd- through 8th-graders at an area school for one year. I've also been tutoring high school students and adults in beginning and intermediate level Spanish for the past 7 years. !Me encanta el espanol!

With 10 years elementary teaching experience and nearly 10 years tutoring experience, I'd love to help you tackle that challenging math! Let's break it down together so you to simplify, understand and apply. You got this!
Reading,

Reading

I have a Masters in Literacy, and this subject has been one of my favorite parts of teaching. I am an avid reader, and I bring this energy to my work with students. My favorite part of the teaching day has been guided reading instruction, in which I introduce a book, assess a student's strengths and needs, and focus on a particular skill with that student.

I got straight A's except for 2 B's in high school (both 91%) and I had a GPA over 3.91 for my B.A. and a 4.0 in my Master's Degree. I am good at finding different means to learn and remember material, and I enjoy the challenge of taking tests. I am accustomed to teaching my students how to work backwards from the target, reading the questions, eliminating wrong answer choices, and looking for clues and evidence to find the correct answer.

I have been an elementary school teacher for 9 years and have worked with students with ADD, ADHD, and both. I believe tutoring is the best option to help these special students improve academically because they benefit the most from the focus of one-on-one attention and instruction.

Knowledgable, patient and considerate.

Teri is tutoring my child in Math. She is teaching her math in a way that my child likes doing these lessons with her. The timing schedule made all the difference. Teri is a very considerate teacher and is very patient while teaching.

Hema, 36 lessons with Teri

Helpful and easy to understand

She understood my goals and was kind and helpful. She helped me prepare for a test the next day. Very good experience. I would definitely recommend working with Teri.

Amy, 1 lesson with Teri

Great Results

What do you expect more from a seven-year-old than confidence? Teresa accomplished that with her knowledge, patience and preparation. Thank you!

Constantin, 44 lessons with Teri

Teresa is awesome!!

Teresa is very patient - she has connected with my daughter and I have seen slow but steady improvements on all of her reading skills. My daughter's teacher has even remarked on the progress she is making. Teresa comes prepared and give us advice on how to help our daughter.

Susie, 27 lessons with Teri

Knowledgeable, pleasant and patient tutor.

This was our first meeting with Teresa. I thought Teresa is very knowledgeable in the subject matter that we are seeking. Megan told me she likes her teaching style and she is more than happy to continue the tutoring sessions with Teresa in the future. Personally, I thought Teresa is very sweet and patient with Megan. I have confidence that Teresa can help Megan improve her reading and writing skills in English. -Alan, Megan's Father
