I have been working as a teacher/tutor for over ten years now. I worked with kids who presented any type of learning disability in the classroom as well as in private lessons. I also tutor for bilingual (English-Spanish) kids who were having trouble dealing with a second language.

I have taught a variety of subjects at the elementary level for over 10 years now. Some of the subjects include math, science, reading, phonics, vocabulary, grammar and social studies.
