Hi my name is Ericka. I have currently earned my Master's Degree in ESL Education. I am proficient in English and Spanish. I am an effective tutor/teacher and uses the latest effective teaching strategies for active learning which is proven most effective in today's classrooms. I work with students according to their unique learning style to accomplish their goal. I have learned a lot of teaching methods that I am sure to help the most challenging student. I am eager and excited to share and incorporate what I know into a plan to help intervene and motivate your student onto higher expectations and learning for themselves. I trust that what I can instill in your student is more autonomous learning techniques that they will use for a lifetime.

I am a professional teacher in ESL instruction. I have studied all effective methods/strategies available to help struggling ELLs learn the target language.

Spanish

Spanish

Spanish is a more on-demand, competitive language than ever before. It is easy to learn if you have the proper motivation and is dedicated to learning it. I have to offer more meaningful ways of teaching it through active learning strategies than with boring rote learning drills. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

I am an experienced K-6 teacher. I have training in all major elementary subjects. I would love to assist/help your struggling student with the basic strategies needed to become autonomous learners. Learning how to self-regulate your own learning helps to create more independent students and studious attitudes in the future. Students become more motivated to learn and their grades excel. Call or email me so we can get started today!
Phonics,

Phonics

I am currently working toward my Master's Degree in ESL Education. I teach/tutor phonics instruction in word learning such as word knowledge, word structures, word segmenting and isolation. My instruction is geared toward learning early literacy skills in all five domains which will later help develop better readers and writers in the future for a lifetime. I agree with the American National Reading Panel that early instruction is best for lifetime readers. Literacy learning should be explicit in phonemic awareness. Phonics instruction should be systematic. There should be many methods in order to improve fluency. Educators should use various ways to enhance comprehension skills.

Knowledgeable!

Ericka is well versed in the information but at times seems to lead my daughter in a direction that my daughter feels is off track with her current learning needs. I believe she is trying to provide more background yet it can prove difficult when she is actually working other things in class. Hopefully, the lessons will continue to improve and Ericka will get on track with her current learning objectives. Ericka is very nice and my daughter likes her.
