Hello! My name is Emmanuel and I am fluently bi-lingual in both Spanish and English. I have had over 8 years of experience teaching lower elementary math, science, reading, and special education. There is no magic solution to education, students only succeed when they do the work and faithfully practice on improving their skills. I provide coaching, mentoring, creative approaches to problem solving, and suggestions for good educational habits. What I love about education are the endless possibilities. There is so much to learn in our world and so many fun ways to learn it. Tutoring should not be boring, it should be something you look forward to participating in each week. It is my responsibility to provide a great learning environment for you or your student, it is up to you or your student to put forth the effort and be willing to try. Everyone should have a great tutoring experience once in their lifetime. We could all benefit from learning something new or improving on something.
I look forward to working with you or your student.
I was born in Panama and my moved to the U.S. when I was 3 years old. I grew up in a bi-cultural and bi-lingual home. I took Spanish classes during my middle school and high school years. I have spent various summers in Panama, Chile, Mexico, and Guatemala. I have over 8 years of experience teaching Spanish. I breathe, sing, eat, dance, and live Spanish every week. Half my friends are Spanish speaking. I watch Spanish Television, listen to Latino music and music from Spain, and currently tutor 3 Spanish students.
I have 8 years of experience teaching reading at the lower elementary level.
I have spent countless hours with lower elementary students as a teacher at a local charter school. I understand K-6 students and their learning mindsets as well as their educational pitfalls. I make learning fun by doing my best to connect learning concepts to a student's prior knowledge. I like to teach using songs, games, and movement.
I am technologically proficient with Windows 7 & 8, Mac OSX, iOS7 & iOS8, Microsoft Office, Cloud Storage, Web Design, Skype, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and most Social Media.

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.
