About Sergio

As a freelance reporter for The Miami Herald, I worked with several editors to refine my writing and editing skills.

As a middle school English and Journalism teacher, I developed interactive and engaging lessons needed to foster an efficient learning environment.

Now, I want to put my background to good use.

During a three-month span, I provided 8th grade students with the tools to improve the class’ FCAT Writing Scores. No students received a score lower than a 3 on a 1-6 scale, while the class passing rate increased from 46 percent last year to 77 percent this year.

I graduated from Florida International University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications in April 2010, and I became eligible for my temporary certificate covering English grades 6-12 on June 2010.

While taking education courses, I became familiar with ways to incorporate technology into the curriculum. I took six courses including a graduate level course to help students with their reading.

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.

Proofreading

I have been editing college essays and middle school essays for nearly four years.
