About Desiree

I have a Master's degree in Secondary Education and have taught grades Pk-12. I have spent eight years in three schools teaching a diverse group of students in Fine & Performing Arts. I have provided support for students in English and Math to increase student test scores and level of attainment in their classwork. I believe it is important for students to be able to use skills learned successfully in one class and transfer those skills to achieve in other subjects.

My goal when working with any student is to put them at ease with the challenge and give them the tools to overcome the challenge. I like to encourage confidence through understanding the material presented. I promote dialog, repetition, and practice to be able to truly understand concepts. My areas of focus in my studies and in my classroom are Language Arts, Speech, and the Arts.

My undergraduate and graduate degrees focus heavily on English Language Arts. Comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, and public speaking are the heart of the performing arts. As a teacher I enjoy coaching students in these areas so that they are better equipped when writing, discussing, presenting, or testing. I enjoy reading and the knowledge it brings, which is something that I encourage in my students.

I am patient and look forward to helping young people in need.

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 had classes in the Abeka Curriculum during 2 of my high school courses. I read the bible daily and have read through the bible twice. I currently use a Matthew Henry commentary, Our Daily Bread, My Utmost for His Highest, and InTouch ministries devotionals. I have taught 3-5 year old Sunday School at Crossroads Community Church and Heritage Bible Church.

Public Speaking

I have a bachelor's in Drama and Communication from the University of New Orleans. I have performed speaking and feature roles in As You Like It and True Confessions of a Go Go Girl.r I have taught drama for 8 years in the Tangipahoa Parish Schools System as a Fine Arts Specialist and Magnet Arts Specialist. This involved auditioning, coaching, and managing student MTI productions.
