Hello! I am Hilda. I love teaching and teaching is what I love to do. In 1969, I graduated from the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico with a B.S. in Secondary Education. In 2007-10, I obtained a Master of Arts in Education in Curriculum Instruction and another one in Adult Training and Education from the University of Phoenix, then in 2011, I completed a Master of Education in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages (TESOL) at Grand Canyon University. I learned so much about myself during that educational journey that it motivated me to continue advancing my studies that I started the Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership with an expected date of graduation in December 2015. I do not regret these educational journeys.

I worked for 15 years with Kids who learn in a different world in a private boarding school. I taught English, History, and Life Skills to ADD , ADHD, and Asperger's students, forming a solid student centered environment.
I understand that some of my students will not particularly care for writing essays. Some students may not be excellent writers, others may hate writing, and that is fine with me. My job is not to teach them. My job is to make them want to learn. If I teach my students something they are not interested in, that is fine. Hopefully something I say or a topic we discuss will spark their interest. Undoubtedly, I do not want to pass along information or facts to my students. In fact, I do not want to teach them things to help them pass a test. I want to teach them passion and desire to learn (maybe it is just one thing about my class that a student liked or enjoyed). I want him or her to pursue that inquiry and that question. I do not want to teach students the definition of vocabulary terms related to writing; I want to show them why those terms are so important to crafting the perfect essay or keeping the best organized writing assignment. I do not want to teach writing rules; I want to teach students how to sound and act in a manner that reflects their intelligence and maturity. I want to connect these things to their lives.

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.
