About Camilla

I am a Brazilian native married to an American native, raising two bilingual children. After teaching and tutoring for six years in the public school system, I resigned my position in order to work from home and raise our children.

I am certified by the state of Texas as a Bilingual Teacher Spanish education. I lived in four different Spanish speaking countries with local families over a period of 12 months. I received a certification from the Cervantes Institute of Spanish for Spanish proficiency.

I passed my TOEFL exam with the highest scores the first time I took it. That is because I learned English in Brazil using a program that works just like the TOEFL exam: listening comprehension, reading comprehension, speaking and writing.

My last year teaching, my students achieved 70% passing rate on their STAAR exams. Though that is greatly on account of their dedication and determination, it is also a result of my researching best practices and insight into the creation of the exams.

I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students and I currently teach as needed as a substitute teacher in the same district from which I resigned my full time job.

I look forward to hearing from you. I am available from 9AM to 9PM most days of the week.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified by the state of Texas to teach elementary grades both in English and Spanish.

I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students while also helping tutor upper grades when necessary.

I currently work as a substitute teacher in the same school district I resigned from.

Spanish

I lived in Spanish speaking countries with local hosts for a full year after graduating from a 4 year Spanish Course.
Furthermore, I was teaching elementary grades Bilingual Spanish speaking students the past 6 years.

STAAR

I taught students who took the 3rd grade STAAR test for three years. My last year, 70% of my students passed the test. While their dedication and determination was key in their success, it is also a testament to my researching of best practices in teaching both the academic subjects and test taking skills.

Study Skills

As an elementary teacher I participated in several of the training programs offered by the AVID institute, one of the nation's leading programs in student success and college readiness. These have given me great resources in order to teach students how to study and stay organized all the way through college.
