About Sylvia

My name is Sylvia, and I have been an educator for seven years having taught Spanish in the state of North Carolina where I received my teaching license in 2004. I have taught K-12 grades. Being fluent in Spanish and a native speaker I have been able to use my bilingual skills to have taught students the art of another language. I have also been an ESL educator and have tutored one on one students who are trying to learn the English Language.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts in December of 2000, with a major in Spanish and a minor in English. With my English minor I was able to teach at Sylvan Learning Center and was awarded the teacher of the month in August of 2006. I love teaching students of all ages.

Right now I am working on my Master's of Creative Writing and English with a concentration in Fiction through Souther New Hampshire University online and I will be graduating in August of 2015.

I have also published several anthologies and my first solo novella.

I love teaching students about writing, English, reading and learning a new language. My job is to get my students motivated and show them that it is possible to have a passion for learning.

For me helping other students succeed is what makes everyday worthwhile.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I received my North Carolina Teaching License in 2005. I taught Spanish K-12 grade. I worked at St. Raphael Catholic School as a Spanish teacher for 3-8th grade for three years. I also helped ESL students from time to time and they were elementary as well as middle school students. I have experience working with Elementary Students because I also served as a Tutor for Sylvan Elementary where I worked with Prek-8th grade as well. I also am a mother of three children that vary in ages from 9,8 and 4.

Handwriting

I am qualified to teach handwriting because my minor for my bachelor's degree is in English. I believe handwriting is an essential part of organization and preparation for each student and I have taught English when I did my internship during one of my required teaching courses for my undergraduate work. I also work with my own children to help them develop better handwriting practices and skills which we also developed at the Sylvan learning center.

Phonics

I am qualified to work on phonics because I taught phonics at Sylvan learning center when I tutored ESL students. I am able to create lessons to work with students one on one on their phonics and create hands on activities to teach them how to better sound out their letters and communicate their sentences. As a bilingual speaker I feel I have the expertise and techniques to give the learner how to access what they are learning.

Reading

I have worked on one and one reading lessons when I taught ESL and English.

I have tutored students from as early as Prek - 6th grade.

I am also a writer and I am specializing in a Master's of Creative Writing and English.

Spanish

I have a Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Spanish and I have also taught Spanish for 8 years.

I have taught students from Kinder to adult level.
