About Tia

Knowledge can only get you so far, right? We've all had those teachers who were incredibly knowledgeable but didn't know how to relate that knowledge to their students. This is where I stand out. I take pride in making subjects interesting and coming up with both out-of-the box, and tried and true methods of teaching, depending on the needs of your young ones.
That being said, let me introduce myself. Hola! My name's Tia and I've graduated from college with a degree in Secondary Education and also with highest honors. Though my "specialty" is all things English, I'm extremely fluent in most all subjects, which can be attested to from previous grades as well as comments and recommendations from my professors. Whether your child needs help with the American Civil War or triple jumping, I'm the one to call.

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.

English

I am certified to teach middle/high school English, with 2 years' teaching experience.

Praxis

I have taken and passed both the Praxis 1 as well as the Praxis II for English Secondary. Both were achieved with high marks, and within recent memory. I have also been on the Praxis website to use review tools that would aid in any lessons given regarding the Praxis tests.

Study Skills

I have completed college with a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education. The majority of the tests I've taken have gotten exemplary scores because of my study skills. I am aware of known methods to increase short-term memory as well as store information long-term.

Track & Field

I participated in Track & Field for over 4 years in Middle and High School, and I lettered each year. I specialized in Triple Jump, Long Jump, the 4x1, and the 100, though I also participated in other relays during county and state meets. I would be able to tutor students on how to maximize their power for jumping and increase running times based on coming off of blocks and passing the baton.

Volleyball

I played volleyball for my high school team from the 7th grade until my senior year. I played all around the court, though mostly in back row and hitting strong side. I also have experience setting, hitting middle, and also playing weak side, but did so less often. I was co-captain my senior year but played varsity with the older grades from 9th grade on.

Writing

Secondary English Certified, taught and graded senior research essay writing during student teaching seminar, about 98% of all college essays received an "A."
