St. Petersburg College (Exceptional Student)
I have a natural love teaching, and got into it after teaching my niece what I knew about veterinary technology. After one night with her, I realized I'd rather teach. I'm not a conformist and rather teach my own way. Although, my style is scientifically proven, it does not fit the normal classroom because I believe every person has an individual learning style. I prefer to teach individuals than a class.
I specialize Exceptional Student Education, however, that simply means I aim to fit my students' needs. Whether I am teaching phonics or advanced Biology, my goal is to help my students succeed by teaching each student the way he or she learns. During each session I try to challenge my students without overwhelming them. I always provide a homework assignment after each session and, occasionally, I provide an assessment and progress reports.
In February of 2015, I passed my teacher certification exam in biology. Prior to that I was a certified veterinary technician. I take pride of my knowledge of biology, anatomy, and medicine.
All through my college education, I was taught the Common Core Standards as well as the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards to prepare for the recent transition. Every lesson plan I have ever written used the most recent standards and material.
Along with learning the Common Core Standards, I also learned how to teach elementary level classes. That is because my degree came with a dual certification. After graduation, I taught 1st and 2nd grade. I also tutored all grade levels at Cotee River Elementary.
My bachelor's degree was for elementary and exceptional student education. I spent most of my teaching time with exceptional students, especially students with specific learning disabilities and intellectual disabilities. I have a lot of patience and have the most fun teaching the most unique students.
If you are wondering what else makes me a great tutor, I am endorsed to teach reading and ESOL. ESOL is a fancy way to say I know how to teach English to students that otherwise speak other languages. I am definitely a qualified teacher and I hold myself to high standards. If my students or their parents are not satisfied with my work, they will get a refund.
I also try to be flexible, so I do offer make up classes on the first Saturday of each month if a lesson is missed. I ask for 24 hours notice, however, and cancellations after that time out no-shows neither get a refund or a make-up lesson.
To ensure safety for my students and I, I offer tutoring at libraries, coffee shops, or other public places. These locations also offer a place with fewer distractions.
I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you or your child succeed! I have a natural love teaching, and got into it after teaching my niece what I knew about veterinary technology.

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.
