Arizona Western College (Education)
Hi my name is Itzel S. I am new to being a tutor, however, I have been working in the school system for over a year now. I started off as a substitute teacher in August 2014. I mainly worked with preschool and elementary. Then on February 2015, I started working as a paraprofessional for a middle school. As a para, I learned to work one on one with students that needed just a little more help than the rest of the class. I learned to be patient and work step by step on any issues they had.
Then on August 2015, I transferred on to work as a paraprofessional in the Alternative program for Yuma School District One and this is where I am currently working. I work with some students who can be difficult to handle at their regular school and are brought to my class. Here I work one on one with students that need help in math, reading and writing. For some of these students, they have been kicked out of their schools since they were in elementary school, so they lack the knowledge in the basic skills. That is where I come in to help them.
I am a very friendly and outgoing person. I have learned to be tough with my students and to keep pushing them to their highest potential. I love working with kids and I know this is what I am meant to do. I am currently attending Arizona Western College to earn my associates in education. Most of my classes are online so I am flexible with hours as long as it is after 2:30pm.
I have worked with preschool to middle school students on their English. I have even worked with ESL students on their English. I am very patient and can slow down and repeat anything that the student has any confusion on. At AWC, I have earned my English 101 and 102 credits with an "A".
I am a very friendly person, and I love to work with kids. I think we will have a great time and will learn a lot. I will work very closely with the parents to make sure we are on the same page about what is required of me. I work in the mornings from 8:30am to 2:30pm. Therefore, I am available anytime after 2:30pm. Hi my name is Itzel S. I am new to being a tutor, however, I have been working in the school system for over a year now.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
