Lamar University, TX (MEd)
I am an educator with over 15 years of experience in teaching grades 11 and 12 English. I have a MEd degree and I'm certified in English (9-12), Special Education, and Elementary Education.
I currently teach Senior English and Honors Senior English. I have also taught online grades 11 and 12 English. As a former USAF military officer, I found my calling as an educator who truly believes that every child can learn. While some students may have different learning styles, it is my job to try everything to instill confidence and success in each student.
I respect what each student has to communicate in their writing. I am nonjudgmental and patient as I guide students in brainstorming writing topics, outlining and organization, revision strategies, and time management.
I have a flexible schedule and can tailor tutoring sessions to meet the student's specific requirements. I have worked with students learning English as a Second Languge (ESL), students needing accommodations/modifications, as well as honors students.

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.
