I am a certified teacher who has taken the year off to work with my young grandchildren to help my daughter while she finished up school. I have had a great time with them. They are 3 and 4 years old, but it is now time to use my skills to help other young people. I love kids, and especially enjoy working one-on-one to reach a specific goal. The glow in a child's eyes when the figure out a concept they were struggling with, is amazing. I was living in Houston before this year and worked for 6 years for Houston ISD before coming up to help my daughter. I really missed my family while I was down there and so gave up the job to move here. I was strictly a reading teacher for 3 years, and my state test scores had over 90 percent of my students passing. For 3 more years I taught all subjects at a 5th grade level, and scores for math and science were in the high 80's and low 90's. I am good at what I do, and I like to work with individuals and small groups. More can be taught that way and I can hone in on what a student's strengths and weaknesses are. I praise the students for what they can do, but plan my lessons to strengthen what they struggle with. I hope that you will give me a chance to show you what progress your student can attain.

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.
I have been teaching at the elementary level for a number of years. I have worked in a self-contained classroom teaching all core academics. I love teaching in small groups rather than large classes. For this reason, I think I would be perfect to tutor children and adults.
I have worked on a Mac as part of my job at a warehouse. I did spreadsheets, worked bookkeeping programs, and basic work on the Mac. This was before the current Apple products and was not compatible with Microsoft products. Since that time, I have worked on a Mac the last 7 months, as that was what was available. I understand the differences, but still prefer PCs.
I am a credentialed elementary school teacher in language arts. I have taken classes in phonics, as well as phonemic awareness, comprehension, fluency and more. I have taught phonics to ESL learners in higher grades as well as at primary levels.
I have sent 8 years with students, having them set up journals for studying, notes and outlines for use in studying. I work with students to organize their papers and coordinate items by subject and importance.
