About Stephanie

Although I am new to tutoring for a service, I have tutored at our school district's after school program as well as at their tutoring program. Tutoring is an opportunity to provide more individualized and more differentiated instruction. I feel my experience as a Pre K through 4th grade teacher well equips me to work with any age elementary student, and to help adults improve their English as well. Working with English as a Second Language students has helped me to learn skills that help acquire a second language while being sensitive to how using a second language takes courage and persistence. I look forward to meeting and working with you. Although I am new to tutoring for a service, I have tutored at our school district's after school program as well as at their tutoring program.

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 have been a bilingaul EC-4 teacher for about 11 years. I have taught in Alief ISD for 7 years and in Waller ISD for 3 years. During this time I have taught pre-k, kindergarten, third and fourth grades. I have worked with kindergarten through second graders in the Alief ISD After School Program tutoring students for math and reading as well as providing enrichment activities such as gardening and cooking. I am certified through the Region IV Alternative Certification Program. I have had extensive professional development in all content areas at Alief ISD. I have received specialized training in reading recovery and numeracy as well as in being a "Dual Language" teacher.

ESL/ESOL

Have tutored 3rd and 4th grade ESL students in my school's tutoring programs for math and writing.

Phonics

I have been a kindergarten and/or pre-kindergarten teacher for about 7 years all together. I have had training in reading recovery. I have worked as a reading interventionist for elementary school both in bilingual and in English-speaking classrooms. My Texas teaching certification is EC-4 Bilingual Generalist.

Spanish

I am a Native Spanish speaker who has taken some college coursework in Spanish (Mexican civilization, Spanish Language Arts for teachers). I have prior experience.
