Western New Mexico University, Silver City, N.M. (Enrolled)
I am currently teaching 3rd grade. I have been in the teaching profession for over 8 years. I have lived overseas in Japan, Italy, and Germany. I have a LOT of life experience! My specialty is reading, grammar and anything English. I would be honored and proud to help you succeed in these areas.
This is my first, but certainly not my last, tutoring job. Since I am still teaching, my availability is primarily nights and weekends. Great for long-term projects! One last note, I am also planning on returning to graduate school in the fall and working towards a degree in Teaching English to Speaker of Other Languages (TESOL/ESL). I can help in this area as well.

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 have taught, and am currently teaching the Common Core curriculum. I have 4 years of teaching Common Core. My current district was one of the first to implement this curriculum with their teachers.
I have taught Pre-K through 2nd grade both with and without approved phonics curriculum. I have experience with Saxon phonics (3 years) and Dibels (6 years). I am a native speaker of English and am qualified to teach the nuances of the language.
I received my undergraduate degree with honors. I graduated Summa Cum Laude and was on the Dean's List every semester. I am a lifetime member of Alpha Chi. I could not have received these notable accolades without practicing proper study skills.
