Oklahoma Baptist University (Anthropology History)
I am a certified teacher in the great state of Texas, and I can honestly say that my passion in life is helping students excel. After graduating high school I attended Oklahoma Baptist University where I majored in Anthropology and minored in History. Growing up, Social Studies has always been my passion and during my school years I always tutored and led study sessions for people in my class. Also, while attending OBU I worked as a reference assistant which meant that I helped other college students with research and test studies.
After graduating, I returned home to Texas and became certified to teach since that is my real passion. I currently hold three certifications in Social Studies 7-12, Generalist 4-8, and ESL EC-12. These past couple of years as a teacher has really shown me that I love what I do and am willing to do whatever it takes to ensure that a student excels. Not only do I want to teach the student, I also want to help raise their confidence and show them that they are capable of achieving anything. By tutoring, I plan to continue this mission and also look for to the opportunity of working one on one with students.
I have experience in helping students study in order to pass the STAAR test. This has been in both math and reading. As a 8th grade history teacher I was in charge of teaching my students the information they needed to know for their STAAR test and I am proud to say that over half of them received a Level Three score.
Prior to becoming a classroom teacher I worked as a sub which meant I spend a lot of time with students of all ages which included elementary. While teaching, not only did I teach middle school grades (6,7,8) I also taught grades (4,5) as well as helped tutor younger kids while in college.
History has always been my passion growing up which is why I decide to pursue a degree in it. Both my major and minor have a strong focus in Social Studies which cover all different subjects such as government, economics, geography, history, social sciences, and culture. I have taught Social Studies for two years in a school setting which has only solidified my knowledge.
I have a real passion for helping students succeed which is why you can count on me to help you with your studies. I am a fun, energetic, passionate teacher who will do whatever it takes to make sure you achieve your goal. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. I would love to get to know you and can't wait to tutor you! I am a certified teacher in the great state of Texas, and I can honestly say that my passion in life is helping students excel.

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.
At the school I worked for I was put in charge of a STAAR class which gave students additional support in the tested subjects. Normally these classes involved students who failed their previous year and needed extra help. During these classes I helped tutor them in mainly math and reading. Teaching 8th Social Studies means I have to prepare my students for the STAAR. Over half of my class received a level three score.
