About Belita

My educational philosophy is to promote an overall desire to learn, while presenting lesson material using history, research, and/or reliable information to gain a student’s conceptual, intellectual, and academic understanding and knowledge of the topic. I attempt to inspire a love of learning in children in their formative years (K-6), as it is essential to attain this attribute early in their development to facilitate future growth. I identify weaknesses in content learning and augment and enhance knowledge of subject matter using a variety of accepted and innovative techniques.

I have taught various grades from 2nd to 9th grades in a private supplementary school for the past 12 years in the following subject areas: Hebrew, Bible, Ethics, Israel, and other related topical areas. For adults, I have provided educational/technical training with measurable success in the areas of human behavior, software development methodologies, and software product usage. I've also taught sewing to adults and children, from beginners to advanced levels, for many years.

I have taken a series of teacher professional development seminars given by Norma-Krasne-Levine, Ed.D., on “Knowledge of the Student; Knowledge of the Teacher,” “Readers’ Theater,” “Tools for Learning,” “Observation Techniques,” “Reflections and Assessment,” et al. I also received Chicago Math training from Sue Sereboff, Masters in Special Education, LD Certified, Certified Diagnostician, Texas State Certification for Tutoring. I graduated from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, with a BSE Computer Science (minor in Business) cum laude with 3.667 grade point average.

Over the years, I have taught students with autism, aspergers, ADHD, dyslexia, and a variety of other learning differences. I have successfully tutored high school students with learning differences on a variety of subjects. Students were accepted into college.

In 2013-2014, I tutored Middle School children (6th-8th grades) in 2 schools on mathematics as part of a special contract with DISD to provide foundational skills to specifically selected schools.

For 11 years, have taught adults how to set-up and use Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office Suite, ACT, Quicken, QuickBooks, etc.

I've also developed/taught a boot camp for 12 new data base analysts for a marketing company. All students graduated; most were promoted one or more times within 6 months of graduation. I developed curriculum and courses for the corporate arm of the University of North Texas.

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.

Computer Science

I have a degree from SMU in Computer Science. I worked in the field: programming, project management, quality assurance including Q/A Management, testing, requirements gathering, auditing, for over 40 years.

Sewing

1955-present, I design and sew clothing, including elaborate wedding gowns, prom gowns, and designer clothing for myself and others, and have completed varied craft projects.

I taught young children to use a sewing machine and to make stuffed animals and pillows and clothing.

In 2005, I received HSA Trained Sewing Educator certification.
