About Monica

I believe my teaching experiences qualify me to teach. I have been a substitute teacher in Highlands County, FL for 2+ years and continue to enjoy this job. I especially like teaching basic math skills, simple science, and basic reading skills. I am a Florida certified teacher in grades K-6 and more recently 6-12 Biology.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I home schooled my daughter (1-6th grade) with great success. It was only natural to start substitute teaching the same grades. I currently substitute teach in Highlands County and would like to try tutoring as well. I am a Florida certified teacher in grades K-6.

I prefer serious students who are ready to improve. I am considered difficult and require every student to work hard. If the student does not want to put in the work or time they will not like my method of teaching. I can make it entertaining, but the goal is to teach understanding as opposed to giving answers.

Elementary Math

I substitute teach all subjects in elementary schools.

Elementary Science

I am a Florida certified teacher in Biology 6-12.

Phonics

Although I relate to the phonics I see taught in school; I prefer Reading Reflex by Carmen McGuinness. If the traditional methods are not working well, you might hire me. Of course, phonics is phonics and the different methods only differ in presentation and execution. Which level the student is at and what method the student is most comfortable with matters a great deal.

Special Needs

My experience with special needs is limited to my experiences as a mother and substitute teacher. I do find myself "subbing" a lot for special needs classes. My ability to help a special needs child would depend on the situation. I believe I can help different learning disabilities but would feel uncomfortable in many other situations. A specialist would be more appropriate if the student has a great deal of special needs.

Study Skills

Study skills, in my opinion, center around organization and implementation. Organization can be improved with materials while implementation takes more effort and getting used to. A routine benefits both. As in all my written responses, I believe that a teacher needs to "tailor" every lesson to a student's individual needs.
