About Al

Hello, fellow life-long learners! I am a life-long learner who possesses a BA in English, a lifetime teaching certificate in English, an ESL teaching certificate that expires in 2019, and a Speech teaching certificate that expires in 2019. I have taught in both middle school and high school. I taught for 8 years in Dallas I.S.D. , one-half a year at a charter middle school in Ft. Worth, and I am currently teaching at a charter high school in Dallas.

I teach using a variety of techniques that include: "I do, we do, and you do;" Socratic questioning; answering questions with other questions (to determine your knowledge--you may already know the answer, if I redirect your focus); technology that includes overhead transparencies, whiteboards, laptops/i pads; and and the five fingers strategy of LSRWS2 (listening, speaking, reading, writing, and success strategies). I truly enjoy celebrating successes, no matter how miniscule it might seem! Have a pluperfect day!

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.

English

I have earned teaching certificates in English as a Second Language (ESL) and Speech. I possess two life-time teaching certificates in English and Physical Education. I have taught in Ft. Worth, Texas and Dallas, Texas for over a decade. I am an example of how education transforms lives. I get goosebumps every time I learn something new. My aspirations are to be a life-long learner who educates future life-long learners!!

GED

Historically, research has shown that the higher the level of Education a person obtains affects their quality of life and their earning potential. A high school graduate makes an average of approximately $180,000 more in their working life-time than a non-graduate. This number increases with each level of higher education achieved. This will benefit you and exponentially benefit your children and grandchildren, too.

Literature

Literature has different and interesting genres. We will ascertain how all skills are interchangeable amongst them, and their changing names based on the genre. The better you read, the better you write. So you say you want to be a better reader? Become a better writer, too.

Proofreading

I discover errors that "Grammerly" like services miss. Get the grade, or results, you truly deserve!

Vocabulary

There are many easy ways to determine the usage and meaning of words, I will also introduce you to two of my best friends, Webbie & Theo, and how best to determine the meaning of the words as they are used in a sentence.
