About Vickie

The "light bulb" moment, the moment when a student understands new material, brings me great joy. I am passionate about finding ways to help students understand and grasp material with which they struggle. I am a certified teacher in my 11th year of teaching. I have taught grades 3 - 5, elementary music, and junior high English in the past and currently teach high school English (English III & IV).

I specialize in tutoring for the PRAXIS I exam and many areas of Praxis II. I also tutor upper elementary (all subjects), junior high and high school English, As I tutor, I assist with current assignments and create my own lessons based on the needs of the student. I enjoy using creative learning techniques to help a student learn according to their learning style. I enjoy challenging students while at the same time providing the necessary foundation for success.

I typically tutor at a public location (coffee shop/library) in Gonzales, but might be able to travel a short distance on occasion. I also offer online sessions for your convenience.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you succeed in your academic endeavors!

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.

Bible Studies

I have taught Sunday School and Bible studies in the church for 25+ years. I have also taught Bible curriculum in the Christian school setting for multiple years. I am a pastor's wife and actively engaged in the ministry.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a current and valid Elementary grades 1-5, and Middle School English teaching certificates in the state of Louisiana. I taught 3rd grade for 3 years, K-6 music for 3 years, 4th and 5th grade ELA for two years, and I currently teach 7th and 8th grade English in Gonzales, LA. I enjoy providing hands-on and creative learning experiences for my students.

English

I am currently certified to teach middle school English (grades 4-8). I have taught English Language Arts in this grade range for four years.

Praxis

I excelled on the PRAXIS I and the PRAXIS II Elementary Ed: Content Knowledge Exam when I took them a few years ago. I was awarded the ETS Recognition of Excellence on the Elementary Ed exam. Since then, I have taken and successfully passed several PRAXIS II exams to add on to my certification: PRAXIS II Teaching Reading, PRAXIS II Middle School English, PRAXIS II Middle School PLT (grades 4-8), PRAXIS II High School English, PRAXIS II PLT (7-12). My scores reflect a method of studying that I have found to be very successful on these types of exams. Teaching is a wonderful profession, and I look forward to helping teachers prepare for their new career by tutoring them for the PRAXIS exam.

Study Skills

For the past two summers, I have taught a remediation program to students that includes study skills. It is an area I stress with the current students in my classroom as well. One of the classes I teach daily is a learning lab, and along with remediation, I instruct them about methods of studying and how to study more efficiently.
