About Ericka

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. Hi my name is Ericka.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

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!

ESL/ESOL

I am a professional teacher in ESL instruction. I have studied all effective methods/strategies available to help struggling ELLs learn the target language. I support the Natural Approach and Interactionist Approach to language learning, I also embrace the principles of the SIOP model in language instruction.

Fitness

I am currently licensed in Zumba fitness and is an ASFA certified fitness instructor/personal trainer in all cardio and aerobic type fitness genres. I can help train you to train your body into perfect physical health. Whatever your target weight and body mass index you want to achieve, I can help.

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.

Salsa Dancing

I grew up dancing Salsa. I am from a Puerto Rican culture where dancing is second nature. There are some dance moves that are just from the heart and Latin culture and you can not find from professional ball room dancing. Let me help show you how authentic Salsa is done.

Sign Language

Learn how to communicate needs using basic American Sign Language for early learners, and learn early fundamental needs through the use/language of signing. I teach signing appropriate for 0-5 years old.

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.

Vocabulary

In today's work force, knowing how to communicate with professionals using professional; academic language is everything! I want to help you reach your goal in achieving a better more professional vocabulary. You will be able to converse in business meetings and interviews with confidence. It is my pleasure to help.

Writing

Having difficultly getting your points across on paper? I can help. This course/session will help take the confusion away from expressing ideas on paper. I love to write, in fact, I write poems and songs. One day I plan to write my memoir. Writing can be fun, it only takes a person willing and motivated to organize their ideas and thoughts on paper! Let me help!

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 obj ...
