About Dolores

I have Special Ed certification in Texas. I have 300 hours of intensive reading and 300 hours of ESL that I acquired through Florida State requirements. I have been subbing in the LISD district for the past two years at all levels. I am very successful with learning strategies and allowing student to explore their own learning styles while teaching them utilizing those styles. I enjoy all ages and have taught or tutored pre-K through college. I was an Adjunct at a private college teaching pre-college math, ethics, and career development. I can and am willing to always take on new challenges if needed. I look forward to representing your company with the highest professional standards.

I will teach you how to learn, to pass tests and to understand what your reading for your personal success.

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

Common Core is federal/state mandated specific instruction at each grade level in order to move forward. I was involved in writing these directives in another state. Common core is the national directive for all states standards however not all states have accepted this directive. It is a guideline of specific instruction at each grade level that is typically tested before a student can either move to next grade or graduate.

Dyslexia

I have a teaching certification in Special Education in Texas which includes Dyslexia as a subject matter. In addition I have worked as a long term sub getting the required tools and training to teach dyslexic students. I will be undergoing addition training to get a specific certification.

Handwriting

I have worked with students on several handwriting exercises including both print and cursive. This includes addressing the start and finish of the letter and directions of hand movements n connection of letters with cursive writing. Teaching cursive to dyslexic is required for them to better identify the form and direction of the letter. Using props to assist students with handwriting and formed letters for transcribing and copying for the younger students.

Special Needs

I am a certified Texas teacher in Special Education which addresses special needs students from all levels of disabilities from physical, emotional to lower academic learners.

Study Skills

I took several college and district required courses in Florida teaching test taking skills.
I am trained in Avid and Cornell notes for test taking as well as teaching. I taught test taking as part of intensive reading courses for context clues, Cornell notes, vocabulary etc.
