I began my education in Juarez, where I learned the basic elements of my education. I began my journey in the United States a few years later as an ESL student. I completely understand the struggles involved with learning a new language. Despite this difficulty, I was confident that I would learn the language and prevail as best I could. I quickly acquired the language and made my education first priority. I loved helping others learn and that is where my love for teaching began.
I graduated from a high school in the lower valley of El Paso at nearly the top of my class, ranked 6 of nearly 700 students. From there, I pursued my education at a private university in San Antonio and was awarded a scholarship. I received my teacher certification as an English Language Arts teacher for grades 4-8 in 2010. I began teaching at a local charter school here in El Paso immediately after my graduation. I have been teaching 5th Grade Reading and English for three years. While I have only been officially teaching, (with a contract) for three years, I have been in classrooms for 10 years helping teachers as an intern, volunteer, tutor, and teacher. Currently, I am seeking my master's degree from Sul Ross State in Education and School Administration.
I have had over 7 years of experience in tutoring. I have tutored in the following formats: as a college tutor to help students apply for college, a college mentor for students in middle school, academic tutor to elementary students,
an online college essay, english, and writing tutor through another tutoring website. I am currently an after school and weekend tutor at my school for reading and writing.
My philosophy is simple. All students have the capacity to achieve what they wish if they put dedication and determination in their efforts. I continue to tell my students that intelligence is not a factor in achieving your dreams. It is in your persistence, your dedication and your heart where you find success. Focusing on improvement is key. One step at a time, will get you where you want to be.

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.
