Oakland University, Rochester Hills, MI (Elementary Education)
I have been working with children for more than half of my life. I have worked in preschools, as well as middle schools, and elementary schools. I have taught fifth grade and sixth grade all subjects as well as middle school Spanish. I currently teach Kindergarten. Teaching has always been my passion for the soul purpose that i love to inspire students to reach their full potential. I know the joy that comes with having confidence in one's abilities. I feel as a teacher I have the privilege and opportunity to help instill confidence in students. I find extreme gratification when one of my students is able to help another because they feel confidant enough to share their skills and knowledge. I have been a tutor for many years as well and have helped students to hone skills they are able to take with them for the rest of their entire educational careers.
I have been studying the Spanish language for over fifteen years. I have lived abroad in Spain and have been immersed among the Spanish culture. I am certified to teach Spanish K-8. I wrote the Spanish curriculum for the most recent middle school where I worked. I was able to teach students grammar, vocabulary, speaking skills, as well teach them about the Spanish culture.
I am certified K-8 for English. I have been a tutor for English for many years as well as taught Summer School during my educational career.
I have taught 5th and 6th grade in a consolidated classroom where I was responsible for covering all the subjects. Also I have taught Kindergarten as well.
I am excited to begin this opportunity to work with students in various subjects. I look forward to building new relationship with families and to help instill confidence in students so they are able to reach far beyond their own potential. Please feel free to contact me and we can set up a time so that we can get started on helping you to succeed the best you can. I will be available for nights and weekends until the middle of June once I will be finished with teaching for the year. Following that time I will be available during the day as well. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon! I have been working with children for more than half of my life. I have worked in preschools, as well as middle schools, and elementary schools.

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.
I am certified to teach elementary education K-6. Along with my degree, I am currently going into my fourth year of teaching. I have taught fifth through eighth grade and am currently teaching Kindergarten.
