I have been in the educational field for 14 years. In that time, I have taught hundreds of students history, social studies, language arts, study skills, internet research, debate, and law. I am very passionate about the field of education and even when I was very young, I knew I wanted to be an educator. Having been one for a number of years has allowed me to develop a number of my own specific skill sets. Additionally, teaching has taught me the value of patience and understanding. Not all students learn at the same pace nor do they learn the same way. There is no "one size fits all." It is a valuable lesson that took me years to learn, but once learned, has made me a better teacher.
In order to keep your interest, I will do what is necessary to make your experience with me a worthwhile one that will last a lifetime. Through the use of audio-visual aids, small group activities, the buddy system, learning logs, guided practice, manipulatives, direct instruction, think-alouds, strategic questions, and other instructional strategies, you will find that the time we spend together will be not only one of intense learning, but fun and interesting as well. Hope to see you real soon!

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 taught Common Core subjects for 14 years. Although Common Core has only recently been adopted in Florida, I am quite familiar with the standards. Many of these standards were taken from the FCAT, which I have administered for many years. In addition to the courses I have taught, I have also taken multiple Common Core trainings held throughout the year in the school where I have taught for 13 years.
