About Sierra

Hello, I am pleased to meet you all! I currently teach at a school for students with diagnosed LD and DDs in West Houston. I currently teach English II and seventh grade Language. I taught ninth grade World Geography and AP Human Geography. During my time as a social studies teacher, I also worked alongside the English department with STAAR test preparation and writing enhancement. In addition to the English department, I was also working to adapt an ESL program on campus for all LEP students. Many of the students were ESL students and needed assistance in regard to education and learning English as a whole. Outside of ELA/social studies, I am a Spanish tutor. I am a former girl's volleyball coach, current musical director, and tutor in my spare time. In my spare time I practice and learn languages, read, exercise, research, volunteer, and mentor young college women. I look forward to working with you. Hello, I am pleased to meet you all!

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.

Geography

Spanish

I have been learning the Spanish language for 12 years, and I truly love it. I have taken classes in Spanish literature, linguistics, Spanish history, advanced grammar and compositions, etc. By me helping others through tutoring, I will also help myself by reviewing and practicing earlier Spanish that we now hint on in upper level classes. I currently tutor students on campus by phone, e-mail, and in person with their compositions, daily homework lessons, as well as their oral presentations at the end of the semester because it isn't always who sounds the best, it's who actually knows what they're saying even if they speak without rolling their tongue.
