About Tracy

My basic leadership training was received in the United States Marine Corps where I served honorably for six years.

I have spent most of my adult life working with at risk children and families in crises as a certified crisis interventionist.

My university background is in speech communication with emphases on public speaking and leadership. In the past, I worked as a substitute teacher for all grades, including special education as a tutor for all subjects and English as a second language at a community college for two semesters.

I have a BA and MA in speech communication from Cal State Fullerton and I am currently attending NYU. I graduated with honors and several awards including a scholarship which was used to attend an internship and academic program in Chicago. There I tutored and taught at risk youth in English, business development, and public speaking. I also taught English in China and I am certified to teach English as a Foreign Language.

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.

ASVAB

Since I served in the Marine Corps, I know what it takes to pass the ASVAB. Not only does the ASVAB have a general section to assess basic knowledge and skills, it also has specific sections to assess expertise. You will need to study and practice basic math, reading comprehension, language skills, and essay writing. Additionally, you will need to think about what it is you want to do in the military and focus on those things as well.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently a full time certificated substitute teacher for all grades, K-12th. However, I work with K-6 a majority of the time. I have raised a daughter (she is a college graduate) and I have worked with children in many different capacities for the past 20 years. Additionally, I have worked as a tutor for K-6 in the recent past. I enjoy working with the younger population and the rewards of them "getting it," or receiving a good grade on a test or paper is unlike any other!

ESL/ESOL

I have my MA in intercultural communication. I have my TEFL certificate and have taught English in China. I have taught ESL students as a substitute teacher and I was a tutor in ESL on my college campus.

Public Speaking

I have my MA in speech communication, which includes public speaking. My job, group facilitation, is a public speaking position.

Reading

I am a Certificated Substitute Teacher and previous Sylvan Learning Center teacher specialized in reading.
