About Rosario

It's been about a year since I've been away from the teaching profession and I truly miss it. What I miss most is the independent/small group instruction. These teaching settings allowed me to hone in on individual student's strengths and weaknesses. I used my student's challenges and wonderings to energize myself and create the next lesson. Because every child is unique their instruction should be tailored to them. I love learning and facilitating that new learning to others! I do have a current teaching license as well as an ESL endorsement.

My undergraduate degree is in biology. As a graduate student, I took numerous premed courses (i.e. anatomy, plant and mammalian physiology, genetics, biochemistry). Currently, I continue to learn and use this Life Science knowledge. I find astonishing how, for example each system (i.e. cell) works so intricately and is vital for the functioning of the whole organism.

I understand the importance of aligning the second language instruction to each student's particular stage of language acquisition. Additionally (and equally important) is arranging for a warm, inviting class atmosphere. I set the tone for fostering tons of curiosity and "it's ok to make mistakes" - this empowered my students!

I have a passion for science. Science is all around us and that is so exciting! If its learning about rocks or the human genome, I can't help but to delve into the topic - using the student's questions (and assessments) to guide my instruction. Whether it is earth, life, or physical science, I am confident that my lessons would be fun, interesting, relevant, and differentiated. I scaffold my instruction depending on student's particular needs. My student's lessons are always aligned to Common Core Standards.

I look forward to hear from you

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.

Biology

My undergraduate degree is in Biology. My post graduate work included courses such as: immunology, biochemistry, physiology, botany, and anatomy.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a current and valid teaching certificate. I was an elementary school teacher for more than 10 years. Due to my lengthy teaching career I have working knowledge of such things as the importance of knowing a student’s mode of learning, setting high expectations, pre/post assessment, scaffolding student’s learning, and Common Core lesson alignment.
