About Ona

My name is Ona P. and I am a recent transplant from the Gulf Coast area (Florida and Louisiana). I am a mother of three, an avid reader, as well as, a published author with a background in historical research. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. To date, I have worked in various capacities, within a varying array of industries. I began my career as an intern in the non-profit sector at Southern Development Foundation, a grass-roots organization designed to preserve the Afro-Creole enclaves of francophone Louisiana. While in this capacity, I gained experience in both research and historical preservation. From there I branched out into the private and public sector, before becoming interested in education. My interests in education came about when my children enrolled in elementary school in one of the rural areas impacted by Hurricane Katrina. I became interested after observing the implementation of the No Child Left Behind Act and its cultural impact on minority and low-income students, via volunteering and later working as a liberal arts substitute teacher and private tutor. From there, I became interested in teaching and educational research, and relocated my family to the Austin metroplex to work on a Master's of Education (secondary), with a concentration in curriculum design and History. After visiting the DFW area, I decided to relocate here , where I plan on opening my own educational firm in the North Dallas area. My current areas of specialization are ELA, Social Studies, History, and essay writing. I am also provide specialized services to English language learners of all ages.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native speaker of English, working toward teaching certification. As part of my training, I have been trained to teach students for whom English is not a first (or second) language, as this is not a standard in education.

Social Studies

I have a degree in History, and I am currently a graduate student at Texas State University, where I have recently qualified to go forth with my Social Studies composite certification.
