About Lia

My name is Lia D. and I tutor Language Arts and Study Skills.

As a child, I faced some challenges with speech and learning disabilities due to epilepsy. Thanks to my parents' encouragement and my hard work, I moved past that and became a better student. Even though I still stutter, it is more controlled. My love of teaching was inspired my parents, tutor, and my love of helping others. I also credit those teachers who never lost faith in me when I asked for their help.

When I was at Centenary College of Louisiana, I tutored through a volunteer program called CLEAR. The full name was the Center for Learning Enhancement and Research. One of the children I tutored had ADHD, so I quickly learned to guide him through his work by answering his questions as necessary. Unfortunately, we were only allowed one semester to tutor any given student. The next semester I tutored a different student that just needed a little push in the right direction.

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 Catechism for a total of 11 years at Our Lady Queen of Angels Catholic Church. While attending Centenary College, I was required to take Old Testament studies. Now when I plan a Catechism lesson, Bible readings are read and discussed as part of the lesson.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a bachelor's of arts degree in Liberal Arts from Centenary College of Louisiana in Shreveport, La. One of the areas of concentration is elementary education. While at Centenary, I completed methods courses in the various subjects on your tutoring list, as well as student teaching in kindergarten and second grade. I also tutored elementary aged students through a program called CLEAR (Center for Learning Enhancement and Research). Upon returning to Opelousas, I tutored for a semester at Gay Hess Speech and Learning Center.

I have also been substituting at a Catholic school for the last 12 years. I have substituted in grades K-6 and concentrated in the various subjects. Some substituting has also been done in junior high. Subjects include math, science, English, and reading. Language Arts has always been my strongest area.

Handwriting

Handwriting was part of the language arts curriculum where I completed student teaching while attending Centenary College of Louisiana. During my college years, I tutored a few elementary students through volunteer program. As we worked together on various assignments, I made sure their handwriting was legible to encourage pride in the work turned in as well as having a good work ethic.
