About Manuel


Bio

I am a very versatile and dynamic teacher. I can teach just about anything because I have knowledge about lots of subjects. I can teach Spanish to kids and adults, as well as math, reading, and writing to younger students. I can incorporate powerful techniques to teach and reinforce vocabulary. This alone sets me apart from my competitors. Lastly, I have an above-average IQ. In order to teach a subject one must master it.

I am a very versatile and dynamic teacher. I can teach just about anything because I have knowledge about lots of subjects. I can teach Spanish to kids and adults, as well as math, reading, and writing to younger students. I can incorporate powerful techniques to teach and reinforce vocabulary. This alone sets me apart from my competitors. Lastly, I have an above-average IQ. In order to teach a subject one must master it.

As for being dynamic. I am up-to-date on the latest trends in education. I've gone to counteless staff development workshops to learn new techniques. I can actually teach the learner how to think by the use of "Thinking Maps" and other strategies. Further, I am an advocate and user of technology. Beyond what I can teach in my tutoring sessions I can also refer my learners/students to use technology to reinforce learning.

I taught self-contained classes in elementary schools in Fort Worth, Dallas, Grand Prairie, and Lake Worth ISDs for over 10+ years. My students would make huge gains in math, reading, and writing each year. I was a two-time Teacher of the Year at various campuses and was recognized by the Dallas Mavericks as an Outstanding DFW Teacher ($1000 Award for me and the school)

I have an English degree from the University of Notre Dame, have written for a local weekly bilingual newspaper (in both English and Spanish), and plan to publish both children's and adult books soon.

I have a Spanish degree from the University of Notre Dame. Both of my children began in bilingual education classes and are fluent in Spanish. I taught in bilingual elementary classes for over 10+ years and Spanish at various high schools for over 10+ years.

As a teacher I am a life-long learner. I read daily and look for new material to write about. My goal is to become a better learner and writer. Thus, you should want to become better at what you do. Let's get together so I can impart my wisdom and learning strateges onto you.

Test Preparation

STAAR,

STAAR

I have taught and tutored grade subjects from 3-12 for various sections of the STAAR assessment. I can take where a student is at and help him/her reach at least the passing mark, and students that are passing the benchmark tests but want to reach the Level I (formerly "Commended" or "College Readiness" levels) by diagnosing where they are at, using the actual TEKS and STAAR Manuals and past assessments to guide them forward.
TAKS

TAKS

I have taught and tutored grade subjects from 3-12 for various sections of the TAKS assessment. This test is now only for high school students that did not graduate due to not passing a section of these assessments. I have worked with students at Fort Worth CAN Academy that took several times to pass the TAKS to graduate, and I am sure that there are still others that have not graduated because of not passing one of these sections. I can take where a student is at and help him/her reach at least the passing mark, and students that are passing the benchmark tests but want to reach the Level I (formerly "Commended" or "College Readiness" levels) by diagnosing where they are at, using the actual TEKS and STAAR Manuals and past assessments to guide them forward.
