About Tiffany

Having spent the last 7 years in education, I have excelled in teaching both reading and English to hundreds of students. Though I currently serve as an Assistant Principal, my love for teaching and learning has never ceased. Touching the lives of others through teaching has been outwardly rewarding as I have received accolades such as Teacher of the Year. This educational journey has also afforded me the opportunity to travel and learn of new and engaging classroom techniques that are easily implemented into personal tutoring sessions. In addition, I've also provided professional development trainings to both new and seasoned teachers. Thus, effective instructional practices are familiar and easily integrated into my one-on-one tutoring sessions.

As previously mentioned, I specialize in English Language Arts and Reading as well as STAAR test preparation for fifth through eighth grade students. I have access to challenging curriculum that aligns with both state and school standards. This will ensure that students remain on track to meet or excel the minimum growth requirements expected by the state of Texas. At the end of each tutoring session, homework is assigned for informative purposes. I personally evaluate and review the homework during each session and utilize it as a teaching tool to enhance comprehension of the skill to be mastered.

It is important to note that I hold both myself and my students to high standards. Thus, I will periodically solicit feedback on my performance and offer feedback to students and parents regarding academic progress. Cancellations require notice at least 24 hours in advance. However, I am flexible with date and time changes to meet the needs of my students. Further, I am happy to travel to a neutral location in order to provide tutoring within the radius which I service.

I look forward to meeting you soon and helping you attain academic success at its highest level!

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.
