Hi, I am a preschool Montessori teacher and Governess with over 10 years of experience. I love to teach one on one with students because it is so rewarding when both the student and I are successful. I am proficient in English, on all levels, including phonics, grammar, writing, and working with some special needs children. I am able to teach Science, Geography, History, and Art, as well, at this teaching level. My Bachelor's Degree is in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences; my two majors were Anthropology and Women's Studies with emphasis on social work, cultural anthropology and psychology. I can also prepare students to take the GED test.
The child's needs come first and a plan is implemented at the beginning. It is revised as needed, to accomplish his/her/ goals. I give homework as appropriate and constantly reinforce their success and help them accomplish more. Children are our future, we must do all we can to ensure this.

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.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences from USF in St. Petersburg, Fl. which includes two majors: Anthropology and Women's Studies. I have been a Montessori preschool teacher here in Florida and in Houston, Texas for over 4 years. I have also been a Governess for over 5 years and did extensive homework with the children at that time. As always, it is my pleasure to help children succeed.
I am proficient in phonics. In Montessori preschool where I taught for 4 years, we have letters made out of sandpaper so that the child gets a complete sensory experience as he/she learns the letters. We have small figures that represent each letter, and then each sound to help with this. These additions can be homemade if necessary.
I have taken numerous Leadership and Public Speaking classes. I have also taken Toastmasters which is a group where you learn public speaking in that setting.
