About Aimee

I've been fortunate enough to make a life out of teaching high school and college English. For the past fifteen years, I have taught 9-12 grade in Texas public schools. In addition, I have also taught community college English courses, tutored students in preparation for standardized tests, and written curriculum/assessments for local school districts. I am currently studying for my PhD in Language and Literacy; this allows me freedom to tutor, especially during academic breaks.

I believe strongly in the literacy potential of all students. My specializations are writing instruction, building confidence and joy in writing, writing for test situations, reading, literary analysis, and connecting student interests to school learning.


I have taught English courses to a wide variety of students in different course settings ranging from AP courses to remedial test preparation.

In addition, I have tutored students specifically for the STAAR test since its inception.

I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

STAAR

I have worked in Texas throughout the implementation of the STAAR test. I am familiar with the types of questions asked in multiple choice format and short answer format, along with the essay prompts. I have successfully tutored for STAAR, taught STAAR skills as a part of a larger course, and taught courses focused on STAAR entirely.
