About Desiree

My teaching career spans two continents and 25 years plus in the classroom. I have a love for learning and I think that's why I am in this arena for such a long time.
For the past 18 years I have taught six grade students in Math and Science. I have also worked with my students in their other subject areas. I have certification in Elementary Education 1- 6. I have also taught some 8th grade Earth science as well as worked with teachers in professional development. At this time I am in the final stages of completing my EdD in Education Leadership.
My work ethics may be tough but I am fair, also patient and expect to get results.

My students will get the best of my expertise based on what area of education they are looking to get help. Once I know my students' needs I will set out a plan to work with them for their best results. I would prefer meeting at a library where there are also resources we may be able to access. In case, students have another preference in meeting site, I will do my best to be accommodating.

In return I expect my students' full participation and cooperation in their study. Timeliness is of importance, that way both student and teacher will be ready to work. I also expect my students to be prepared with any home-work assignments. Together, my students and I will work for the best results that will lead to their success.

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.
