About Priscilla

I have experience as an Interim Writing Center Director/Instructor/Master Tutor at the university level. As the Acting Writing Center Director, I managed the Writing Center and staff. I also provided hands-on classroom instruction in Writing Tutorial Class (WTC) 1000 for students who needed assistance passing Writing section of Texas college assessment. I also tutored university students in writing (all university subjects/disciplines). I also conducted Writing Series Workshops and THEA (now TSI) Writing Preparation. I assessed students’ writing skills and made class visits to college classes to discuss the services provided at the writing center. I prepared tutors’ work schedules, conducted weekly staff meetings, and trained and mentored new tutors.

I also have experience as a Master Tutor/Mentor at high school level with the Upward Bound Program, a U.S. Department of Education Grant Funded Program. I tutored students in English, History, Government, Speech, and French after school, during lunch, and on Saturday tutorials and mentored 20 females. I made weekly contact with students to obtain academic and personal progress and status. I also referred students for tutoring in other subject areas, advising, and counseling. I documented all contact with students in academic files.

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.

English

I have tutored privately for over 14 years, and I also taught and tutored students at secondary-college levels.
