About Ty

I am from Louisiana. I lived there for 25 years. I have recently relocated to Houston, Texas upon receiving my teaching certification in Texas. I have been tutoring students and adults for the past 6 years. In college, I began working in a tutoring program that was sponsored by the school and grew to realize that I enjoyed helping others understand mathematics. I believe that everyone has the ability to understand mathematics in a simple, less complex way if the time is taken out to meet them at the level that they need. Learning math can be fun, if you have the right tutor and/or teacher!

I love math! I have taught elementary mathematics for 4 years consecutively. During undergraduate school, I minored in mathematics. I have tutored students at all levels, including students preparing to take the ACT, GRE, and teaching certification tests.

I taught Common Core math for three years in Louisiana. Each year, the passing rate for my class was always 80% or higher.

I have taught all subjects. The two I loved most were mathematics and science. I am certified in both Louisiana and Texas to teach all subjects early childhood through sixth grade.

I am very flexible and I love to to meet new students. I know that my purpose in life is to motivate, encourage, and enhance students' lives. I believe that there is no point in focusing on teaching skills that you might have missed in previous grades, but focusing on the skills that you need for your current tasks at hand and scaffolding lost or missed skills into the current lessons.

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.

Common Core

I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Master's in Educational Leadership. And I taught Common Core in Louisiana for three years. Each year, my class passing score was 80% or more. I have attended many Common Core workshops over past few years and have hosted several for Caddo Parish school district. Throughout my tenure of teaching I tutored students in preparation for taking state assessments.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught all subjects in elementary education for the past 4 years. I taught in 3 years in Louisiana and 1 year in Texas. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Master's in Educational Leadership. To be successful in tutoring, I believe that data is the key. Identifying strengths and weaknesses through diagnostic assessments is vital to the success of both the tutor and learner.
