Bio

Hello, learners! I am certified in business education, teach online reading at a private school, and taught ESOL for three years. I am a trained substitute teacher and volunteer tutor. In the past, I worked as an assistant teacher and in other positions at a Montessori school for four years. I have been tutoring/teaching since 2005 and continue to develop myself to be the best that I can.

Hello, learners! I am certified in business education, teach online reading at a private school, and taught ESOL for three years. I am a trained substitute teacher and volunteer tutor. In the past, I worked as an assistant teacher and in other positions at a Montessori school for four years. I have been tutoring/teaching since 2005 and continue to develop myself to be the best that I can.

I passed the general knowledge tests for the Florida Teacher Certification Examinations or FTCE because I had intended on completing a bachelor's degree in Exceptional Student Education (ESE). Instead, I got some training in ESE and finished with honors from Miami Dade College in 2014 with a BAS in Supervision and Management. Further, I have the standard hours of childcare training through Florida Department of Children and Families. I also have other training and numerous certificates, which include magna cum laude and academic distinction.

My major areas of tutoring include English, reading, and writing. In addition, while I am not a qualified Montessori teacher, I have a great appreciation for the philosophy; thus, I prefer to interact with students using its style. However, I strive to reach learners by employing methods and techniques that work for them and within their time frame.

As far as other policies go, I will never charge you if we exceed the agreed upon tutoring time. Further, I will charge $10 for no shows and cancellations that occur after 24 hours. I understand that “life happens,” so I encourage you to communicate your concerns directly to me.

Feel free to inquire about other lessons because once I prove my knowledge with Wyzant, I might be the right fit for you. Also, please remember that we can exchange personal information when your payment details are on file and Wyzant will deduct the tutoring fee AFTER I conduct the first lesson. Thank you, and I am looking forward to working with you.

My experience comes from successfully teaching students how to read. I use phonics lessons to accomplish my goals.
Reading

Reading

In 2007, I completed a national literacy training program in The Bahamas. Since then, I have been enthusiastic about helping people learn how to read. My technique in helping students learn is discovering what he/she likes and build off of it. For this reason, I have also successfully assisted learners who have been labeled. Together, we can accomplish everything!

English

English

Throughout my early and late education, English language has always been my strength. In college, I typically had outstanding grades. Today, I continue to stay on the cutting edge by taking various competency exams because I know that being a native speaker is not enough to prove my knowledge. Besides, students value "the tricks" I use to help them learn.

Writing

Writing

When I first added writing as a subject, I was more focused on handwriting and helping students build sentences and/or write answers based upon content. Because I used to review and critique essays for (potential) teachers and I enjoy writing, my focus has shifted to essay writing.
