I have always loved teaching a foreign language. Back in Latvia , I taught Latvian to the U.S. Peace Corps volunteers for a couple of years. I also taught military English (EFSP) to Latvian, Russian, Estonian and Lithuanian soldiers for the NATO project Baltic Battallion, which I absolutely loved.
After these teaching experiences, I started to look into international teaching programs. I won a Fulbright Scholarship for teachers in 1999 and I came to the U.S. to teach Russian and Multicultural Enrichment in a small rural school in Greentown, Indiana. I made the curriculum and found a big support from the local community. I have always been excited about teaching. Currently I am a job coach for Arlington ISD and look forward to teaching something exciting in near future!

Ilze is always punctual and prepared with a lesson plan. She has a progressive plan, and has developed good rapport with her student.
Ilze is very personable and able to tailor lessons to our individual needs. We are planning travel to the region, and we receive insights to the language, construction of words and proper pronunciation so we will be understood by the inhabitants. She has a very good ability to relate to us as students and help us with our individual difficulties. I highly recommend Ilze for knowledge, flexibility and skill at bringing out the student's abilities. We have no complaints about the tutoring we receive.
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.
Currently I am working as a job-coach for the job program 18 PLUSS for Arlington school district. I teach job skills and social skills to autistic and MHMR young adults on a daily basis. This job is so rewarding because many of our young adults get hired part time after graduating from our program.
I am CPR certified and also am a personal attendant to one marvelous autistic teenager during weekends.
I am fluent in Russian and Latvia. I was born in Latvia, a former Soviet Union republic. We had to speak Russian at school as children.
