About Misty

Thanks for checking out my profile! I have 12 years of experience with teaching, tutoring and academic training. I have a master's degree and have been teaching in Round Rock ISD as an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher and English Language Arts for grades 9-12. I taught English in Russia for four years where I gained a significant amount of experience in English as a second language and test preparation, specifically for TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC, and GRE/GMAT. I have tutored all ages from young children to adult students and specialize in setting goals and objectives for what can be accomplished in a set amount of time. Before transferring to public school, I taught and tutored university-aged students in foundational English skills, academic writing, and test preparation.

Other skills that I have to offer are computer literacy and mastery of all Microsoft Office (MS) software on both PC and Mac Apple computers. I can teach speed reading and writing of all kinds. I am an avid reader and love to discuss literature and reading development with students. I can prepare any age for upcoming STAAR assessments. Basically, you tell me what you or your student would like to master, and I can come up with a plan of action and create the curriculum.

I am fluent in Russian and have high beginner levels in both Spanish and Bulgarian. I love languages and hope to get a chance to compare and make parallels between your language and English!

Please give me an opportunity to adapt my tutoring and teaching skills to meet any needs you might have. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
