About Valencia

The overall development of children is my goal as an educator. I have always been that down-to-Earth teacher who listens wholeheartedly to what my students have to say. I believe that every child has a story to tell so I am always willing to listen. It is these stories that help to guide me as I help them to develop academically, emotionally, and socially. While state-mandated tests have become critical to the success of our students, I do believe that is equally important to help children develop a true understanding of what is taught in the classroom by helping them to connect their earning to their everyday lives. It is only through such an understanding that I believe that learning really takes place.

Originally from the Caribbean, I have taught children of all ages, including middle and high school levels. I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in PreKindergarten/Primary Education. I also have experience working with children with varied disabilities, as well as children who require special accommodations in the classroom. In my mind, every child is special and learns in his/her own unique way. I believe that it is my job, as a teacher, as an adult, a mother, as a citizen to ensure the overall development of my students.

I make learning Math concepts fun by incorporating hands on activities that motivate students.

Upon graduating high school, I was awarded for achieving the highest level in my country in the area of grammar. I think that it is important that children learn the correct grammatical skills and how to use them appropriately. This helps them better able to express their thoughts and ideas.

I am committed to helping each child excel. I think that each child should be able to demonstrate his/her learning accordingly.

I am able to relate well with children at the elementary level. I know how to incorporate developmentally appropriate activities that will motivate young learners.

I will be an excellent fit for you. If you really want to understand what you are being taught and how to apply what you learn in your everyday life, I am the perfect tutor for you.

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.

Common Core

I am very familiar with the Common Core standards and help students prepare for state-mandated tests. In addition to being Florida state certified in Elementary Education K-6th, I am also certified in Pre-Kindergarten/Primary Education.

I am currently certified by the state of Florida to teach K-6th Elementary Education. I have taught 3rd and 5th grades in the past and currently teach 4th grade in Florida.
