About Carmen

Hello! I am originally from Guatemala but have been living in Dallas for 10 years, so I guess that makes me a Texan!
Want to improve your body & mind? Well, let me introduce you to Yoga! I've been passionate about yoga for years. Practicing yoga has done wonders to my mind-body, it calms your mind through physical activity and mindful meditation. You will become stronger, more flexible, and less stressed.
The passion I always had for yoga inspired me to pursue a Teacher Training Certification at Dallas Yoga Center. Now, I am ready to share yoga with the world!
The Teacher Training I completed was the 200 Hour Teacher Training Certification through Dallas Yoga Center (Yoga Alliance Certified). It was a 6 month commitment involving weekend immersions, self-study, teaching, class attendance, observation and deep self-inquiry. I also taught Community Classes for a few months at Dallas Yoga Center.
Let me guide you through your journey as a yogi. I will help you strengthen your muscles, improve flexibility, and release tension! Sounds like a plan? Send me and email and I will get in touch with you as soon as possible. Namaste!

Want to learn Spanish too? I am fluent in Spanish since it is my native tongue. I can help you with conversational Spanish. Improve your conversational skills and learn more about the culture! I can help improve your oral, reading, and writing skills! With me as a tutor, you won't have any problems on your next trip to Argentina!
If your business requires for you to have client relations with the Spanish speaking world, I can help you with that too! I will help you with business related Spanish and your business will boom!

Just a little background information on me ...
I was born in Guatemala from a Spanish father and Guatemalan mother. As a child I lived most of my life in Guatemala, although I lived a few years in the U.S. I went to college at the University of Miami and majored in Marketing. I loved Miami! I got to meet people from all over the world, it was a great experience!
I then got married and came to Dallas where I left marketing and worked eight years as an elementary math teacher. My goal was to inspire my students' love for learning! During these 8 years, my students' TAKS/STAAR scores ranked among the highest in the school where I taught and also through the Dallas district. Thanks to that, after my third year of teaching I became a Master Teacher. I believe there isn't really an excuse for students not to feel successful in what they are learning!


I strive for client satisfaction, so I never charge for a lesson in which the student is not fully satisfied. Since I hold myself accountable for the quality of my lessons, your feedback is appreciated.

Although I have a cancellation policy of 12 hours prior to the tutoring session, I also gladly offer makeup sessions.

I look forward to hearing from you and to be part of the journey of your learning!

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.

Autism

My experience in autism comes from working 8 years with autistic students as a Math teacher.
Although my experience is mainly in Math, I am certified in General Education K-4th grade, so I can teach all subjects.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching for 8 years in the public school system. I have experience teaching Kindergarten, Third, Fourth, and 5th grade, however I am certified to teach Pre-K through 4th grade. I specialized in Math but I've taught Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts. Since my students' scores have ranked in the highest positions in my school and school district, I became a Master Teacher after my third year of teaching.

Elementary Math

My experience in teaching Math comes from teaching this subject to students in Kindergarten all the way to 5th grade. Throughout these years my students have achieved stellar results in state tests and have made tremendous academic gains from their previous school years.
I believe in inspiring students to have a love for math. Sometimes Math becomes difficult because it is feared, but once it is presented in a way that is not intimidating the student not only learns but starts to love Math.

Spanish

I am a Spanish native speaker and certified bilingual teacher! I love my culture and will be happy to give you insights about it! Want to learn conversational Spanish? Just let me know.

Yoga

I've been passionate about yoga for years. Practicing yoga has done wonders to my mind-body. That passion inspired me to pursue a Teacher Training Certification at Dallas Yoga Center. Now, I am ready to share yoga with the world.

Great Tutor! Very knowledgeable!

Carmen is a great tutor. She is very punctual, knowledgeable, and prepared for her tutoring sessions. It's just what my child needed to get her prepared for middle school math. My second child is looking forward to working with her during the new school year, too.
