About Celita

I am a 2nd grade teacher. I am certified in Early Childhood, Elementary Education and Bilingual Education. I am a friendly, outgoing person who enjoys working with children. I received my teaching certificate from the University of St. Thomas in 1994. I taught 2nd and 3rd grade bilingual classes in the Pasadena Independent School District before having children of my own. Prior to returning to teaching full time last year, I tutored for ten years for several Pasadena elementary schools. I began as a TAKS tutor in reading for both regular and bilingual students from grades 2 through 5. Then I tutored regular and bilingual students at the same elementary school for five years in reading, math and STAAR prep for primarily grades 3 - 5. My approach is simple and straight forward so that students can better understand the material that they are struggling with. I teach my students effective strategies to help them succeed. I am very approachable and encouraging. I am a 2nd grade teacher. I am certified in Early Childhood, Elementary Education and Bilingual Education.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 in elementary education and have tutored elementary students in grades 3-5 for the past eight years in reading in the Pasadena School District. Frequently the reading passages that I have used span social studies and science. For the past five years, I have tutored the same grades in math as well.

Reading

I have tutored at Fisher Elementary in the Pasadena Independent School District for the past seven years. During that time, I have worked with grades ranging from 2nd to 5th.

STAAR

I have been preparing and tutoring students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades at Fisher Elementary for the STAAR Reading and Math tests since the STAAR replaced the TAKS in 2012. I teach and reinforce the TEKS, especially those covered on the STAAR tests.

Great math tutor!!!

My daughter has had only 3 lessons with Celita....she went from failing to making so much progress in just 3 weeks! She has made 100 on both of her math tests! Celita is very friendly and makes my daughter feel very comfortable considering she is very shy. Thank you so much for all your help! I will continue to use WyzAnt and Celita!!!
