I am mostly experienced in teaching English as a Second Language to non-native English speakers. I have taught all subject matters such as reading, math, science and social studies.

In the past 23 years, I have worked as a TESOL teacher for the Cleveland Metropolitan Schools in grades Kindergarten, first, second and third. I am mostly experienced in teaching English as a Second Language to non-native English speakers. I have taught all subject matters such as reading, math, science and social studies. I enjoy incorporating music,dance and games during my teaching. I speak, read and write Spanish fluently since I am a native from Puerto Rico.

If I would be tutoring in reading, I would give some basic assessments in alphabet recognition, sound recognition and blending and segmenting sounds in words. I would make sure the student works in building basic sound combinations to blend and phonetically read words. I would then incorporate some memorization techniques to help student also learn high frequency words e.g.(a, me, my, the). Students they would learn to read some basic sentences applying their knowledge of the high frequency words (Dolch list), and phonics. Vocabulary will be introduced as its incorporated in the reading.

If teaching Spanish as a second language, I would use the Comprehensible Input method. This method helps students learn basic communication patterns as they learn basic parts of the language. Pronouns, nouns and verb patterns will be first presented and later adjectives and adverbs. The use of picture dependent text and conversation will be used to support the instruction. Many of the reading techniques used in the English reading method can also be incorporated into the Spanish tutoring.

Basic math facts will be introduced using some simple strategies as counting on, counting backwards, using the ten base. The use of manipulatives and drawings will be part of my tutoring practice to assist the student to visulize mathematical concepts.

I look forward into using some of these and other skills to help the student advance in their learning process.
