Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Common Core

I taught Common Core standards as a teacher and currently tutor grades 2-11 Common Core standards in ELA and Math.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a master's degree in Education (K-12) and taught 2 years of 2nd grade, 2 years of 4th grade and 4 years of 3rd grade. I currently tutor students from the 2nd through 11th grades.

Handwriting

With a master's in education and 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience I have helped students from K-11th grades write, read, etc. Specifically, four of those years, I taught 3rd graders handwriting. Many of the students I worked with also received direct assistance from me on their print handwriting.

Spanish

Spanish is my first language and I am fully fluent in both Spanish and English. I taught Dual-Language, Full Immersion Spanish for 5 years in Las Vegas, NV. I have successfully tutored students as young as Kinder up to and including adult healthcare professionals become more confident and fluent speaking, reading, writing and understanding Spanish.

Study Skills

With a master's degree in Education and 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience, I have helped students grades 2-11th truly understand and learn, prepare for tests, and apply effective study skills. For 5 years in a row, my students scored the highest of their grade level on state standardized tests.

Taina has been tutoring my child for 3 weeks and we are already so thankful that we found her. After experiencing a few tutors that weren't quite the right fit or weren't reliable, we finally found the right one. In just 3 weeks I have seen test scores improve from 50%, to 78% and most recently 88%. While test scores are a good measure of success, I also am seeing a great improvement in overall c
