I have taught, tutored, and counseled students at the elementary, secondary, and college levels over a period of fifteen years. My Texas State Certifications include Elementary (1-6), Special Education (EC-12), Social Studies (8-12), and School Counselor (EC-12). Students at all levels tend to feel comfortable in my presence as I am very patient and understand what they are going through if they are struggling. Although I am very good at elementary math, I had my struggles with this subject at the high school and college levels and certainly have not forgotten it.

My attitude toward writing is that, "If you are literate, and you can tell a story, then you can write about it." Many of my students have concurred with me on this. Being certified as a school counselor, I am quite good at reading how to approach and work with individual students and inspiring them to do their best. Students need to know that there is a reason for learning, and I do my best to express that reasoning.

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.

As a high school and college instuctor, I have had dozens of students develop and deliver oral presentations to their classmates. I have guided many of these students through this process in private and in small groups. I had difficulties with presenting in front of others in years past, and understand the fears that many people have of speaking in front of others. The key to delivering a succcessful presentation is preparation. By learning what it is that you are presenting as if you are telling a story, your delivery will be smooth and probably interesting.
