About Nando

I was an elementary school teacher for 15 years. I have been the classroom instructor for grades 2, 3, 4, and 5. I have been a reading guide for grades K-5. I have been the Information Literacy instructor for grades K-5. The above mentioned background experiences have been as a bilingual/biliterate instructor where I taught in English as a first and second language, as well as Spanish as a first and second language. I then became a substitute teacher for 4 years from Preschool to 12th Grade. I can tutor any subject or any content within the Elementary Curriculum grades. I can teach in either Spanish or English as a first or second language.

My style of teaching is more of the facilitator approach guiding the student through the learning experiences. I build foundation blocks to prepare them for the diving platform. I belief in Vygotsky's Z+1 approach to learning. That is, find out what they already know (Z) and use that knowledge to lead them to the next level (+1). I try to make learning meaningful by applying the lessons to real-life situations and use. I am eclectic, providing visuals, sounds, animation and such, in administrating the lessons.

I am currently a bilingual administrative assistant for a law firm. Therefore, my hours of tutor availability are from 5:15 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Weekends and holidays by special arrangement. I am energetic, enthusiastic, friendly, outgoing, patient, and adore children. I am open to a pre-meeting with parents and students. I like to facilitate the learning experience with smiles!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a bilingual elementary school teacher for 15 years. I was then a substitute teacher for grades P-K to 12 for 4 years. During my substituting years, I was often called in for long term periods (1 week to 3/4 year). I am currently a bilingual administrative assistant at a law firm.

Elementary Math

I have taught Elementary Math at grade levels First to Fifth at public schools as the regular classroom teacher.

Handwriting

As an elementary school teacher for almost 20 years, I have taught the primary grades curriculum which covers handwriting. Specifically, I have taught the D'Nealian style because it lends itself as a stepping stone to cursive. Handwriting skills also include posture, writing tool options, paper formats, and of course, guided practice.
