About Tracy

I am a Master teacher who has taught all levels of High school English. I specialize in working with reluctant learners, especially writers. In my 16 years as a teacher, I have never met a student who could not write. The majority of the time, a student's only problem is their own lack of confidence in writing. I understand that is often difficult to place your intimate thoughts on. Page where you feel others will judge you. This is a process I can help you with.

It is my goal to help each student overcome their area(s) of struggle via lots of hard work and some fun.

I have taught all four levels of high school English, thus being exposed to a vast amount of literature. I am great with helping struggling readers understand difficult pieces. I work wonders with reluctant writers, giving them tools to make the process much less stressful. I am skilled at proofreading, and, if need be, I can pass those skills on to willing learners.

I look forward to hearing from students who are struggling with English Language Arts and everything it entails. I hope to make our time together not just informative, but fun, as well. Contact me, and let's being the process of improving upon those skills you may not even realize you possess.

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.

STAAR

I successfully taught TAKS prep for about 10 years. I was able to achieve a passing rate of up to 100% during my time tutoring this subject. I have since been trained in STAAR ELA Prep.
