Stephens College (Business Marketing)
Concordia University (Master's)
I have been in the teaching industry for over fifteen years working in various districts as a Substitute Teacher. I have taught ages five to age eighteen, but recently in the past several years, I have taught mostly Elementary and Middle School students. I do not possess a certification, but I still strive for high academic achievement. I completed my Master's in Education for Curriculum & Instruction from Concordia University.
What I enjoy most about teaching is when I can help a student understand the subject being taught. I enjoy helping students with reading concepts, but I also enjoy helping students with math for EC - 6th grade. I enjoy finding games to make learning easier, and help students see that reading and math can be fun! I like to use graphic organizers, concept maps, writing, and discussions to help students learn material. I find that when students discuss or write about what they are learning, teachers can find their strengths and weaknesses about the given subject.
I have completed graduate classes for reading and vocabulary. I have six credit graduate hours specifically for reading. I have more credit hours geared toward literature for reading and vocabulary. I understand how to help students read using various reading strategies for comparing and contrasting, cause and effect, fact & opinion, inference skills and understanding the author's point-of-view.
What makes me outstanding for Elementary is my completion of my EC - 6th grade classes through the approved teacher alternative program. I have also passed the PPR and my content test. I also have more than fifteen years in working experience in the classroom as a Substitute Teacher.
I personally have a phonics kit at home that I have used to help students. I invested in the kit years ago.

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.
I am qualified to tutor in Business based on my BA degree in Business/Marketing Fashion Merchandise and my Retail experience. I have over ten years in Retail experience working for other companies.
I have owned my own business twice before and I know how to guide business students with business textbooks, and the Harvard Business School webinars and website.
I understand business principles, the components of a business, and I have books that explain how to operate a business.
In my previous position, I assisted participants with career development by using an employment plan.
In addition, I administered personality tests (Tratify Assessments) to assess their strengths and weaknesses for various occupations.
I asked them specific questions to identify their career desires. What is your passion? What do you really enjoy doing that you are really good at? What skills do you have to prove how well you do your passion?
Then, I used the sites below to help them understand what else is needed to research their desired career. I helped them get to the next department that could possibly offer training for them to further develop their desires.
I helped them with their resumes and used Talent Market as well as career builder to help them match jobs to their skills.
I have passed my content exam, PPR, and I have completed all my teacher classes through an approved teacher certification program. I completed a Master's degree last year in Education for Curriculum & Instruction.
I have over fifteen years in the education industry in the classroom assisting students in various subjects. I have tutored students during class, at lunch, and in while the library.
I have tutored students before using the phonics kit I purchased years ago. It contains a complete set to help children read from ages five to third grade.
