I have taught for 8 years in the Clark County School District. Six of those years were in 5th grade. During that time, 4 years I taught all subjects within the 5th grade curriculum and took part in unrolling the Common Core State Standards for our school. I was the inclusion teacher (working in a co-teaching environment for students with and without special needs) for reading, writing, and mathematics. My students made great gains every year I have taught including 4 years of making over 70% passage rate on all areas of the state-wide tests. The last two years in elementary school I was the math teacher. I, again, co-taught this with our special education teacher and my students achieved over 80% passage rates. During this time I held multiple positions on staff. I was the inclusive representative, the intermediate math specialist, and grade level chair. I am currently working in 6 grade middle school math and have had great gains with these students as well.
I am highly qualified and meet all expectations to be so according to Nevada. I hold a BA in Elementary Education, a specialized endorsement in middle school math, and a Masters degree in foundational through middle school mathematics. I am currently working toward my TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) certification. I have great respect for being an educator and a greater respect for being a student.

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.
