About Monica

Hello, my name is Monica J. and I love to teach. I graduated from the University Of Texas at San Antonio. I have worked with Kindergarten-5th grade students. My bachelor's degree allows me to teach EC-6. English Language Arts is what I love to teach, even though I am well versed in other elementary areas. I am comfortable in all areas of elementary education. I would love to work with your student as I find that one-on-one tutoring builds confidence and strengthens skills.

My teaching philosophy is that children learn best when they feel safe and happy. To me this encompasses so many of my values as a tutor/teacher on several levels. Children should feel safe to express their feelings and ideas and they should feel both physically and emotionally safe. Furthermore, when children are happy, this can generally mean that all is right in their world for the moment - there are no other issues clouding their minds and they are free to learn. In addition to my teaching philosophy I also have a set of teaching goals. One of my goals is to foster independent thinking, friendships and acceptance. Another important goal is to motivate my students to become life-long learners.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BA in Education. I student taught at the elementary school level as well as early childhood. I will be a certified teacher at the end of January.

Study Skills

I feel like I'm qualified to tutor this specific subject because I'm a certified EC-6 ESL teacher. I currently teach 2nd grade, and have worked with students as young as Pre-K. On Saturday mornings I tutor a group of students in 4th grade to get them ready for the STAAR test that is taken in Texas every year. I'm extremely organized, and to have the appropriate and necessary study skills you have to be organized and you must have a plan.
