About Ernestine

I am a retired teacher. I worked for the Hillsborough County school board beginning as a substitute teacher and then a 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade teacher. I have about 6 years of experience teaching on the elementary level and 1 year teaching middle school math. I'm one who loves learning new things and helping others learn.

I have an associates degree in Graphic Design from IADT, I do some freelance designing and Photography.
I really enjoyed teaching and I miss seeing students learn something that they previously didn't understand.

Training I received in school and freelancing.

I have basic fundamental design skills using Photoshop, Illustrator,and digital imaging and editing, plus basic fundamental Photography skills.

I'm patient and make learning fun!

Very patient and engaging

Established a connection with my 7 year old son to the point that he is excited to go to the tutoring sessions. Goes above and beyond by researching and developing appropriate and engaging tools for use in sessions. Has been a tremendous support system for both myself and my son during a year that prior to Ms. Ernestine's involvement was a struggle to say the least. Very grateful for her.
