Bio

I am a Certified Special Education Middle School teacher, and work with students ranging from grades 5-8 in all four core subjects. I try to make learning simple, fun, interesting, and provide materials to students that support my instruction and their path to succeeding. I believe a teacher provides %50 of the dedication by planning and instruction, and the student provides the other %50 by focusing and working hard to learn.

I am a Certified Special Education Middle School teacher, and work with students ranging from grades 5-8 in all four core subjects. I try to make learning simple, fun, interesting, and provide materials to students that support my instruction and their path to succeeding. I believe a teacher provides %50 of the dedication by planning and instruction, and the student provides the other %50 by focusing and working hard to learn. Together that makes a %100 team effort in a comfortable and successful environment.

I have many years experience of writing short stories, poems, essays. and college-level thesis papers. My experience has helped me to become confident with skills in spelling, grammar, content, and comprehension. I read every day of then week, both free reading and texts, and have taught students how to look for context clues, key words, understand vocabulary, and using information to answer a question.

I have had a passion for Social Studies my entire life, and enjoy learning about the past, as it is the reason we are here in the present. I help students to not just understand facts and time periods, but also their importance, and use images and videos to show supporting evidence. History is not just a subject, but a way of life. I do everything possible to make it interesting to the learning and adaptable to current situations in order to gain knowledge.

For the past 2 years I have worked in a classroom, and done both group and one on one instruction. Choose me as a tutor, and we can find your best way of learning, as well as support your strengths and build on your weaknesses. No student is un-intelligent, and no question is a horrible one. It's about your understanding, and how I can get you to where you want to be in life. I will offer my support, guidance, and help, and ask for your hard work, focus, and dedication in return. Be ready for a complete team effort!
