About Mercedes

My love for teaching came from when I stopped playing basketball competitively.
In August 2010 I became certified to teach kids yoga, in November 2011 I became a certified TRX trainer, and then in August 2014 I became certified in teen yoga.
I have the pleasure of teaching kids and helping them grow as students, athletes and student athletes.
Some students need someone closer in age that they can connect with while learning opposed to their teacher and or parent(s). People have to understand that not every child learns the same way and you have to be able to break things down differently.
I love with kids have that "ah-ha!" moment when something clicks. That makes me happy and proud.

I have excellent writing and vocabulary skills. Research papers were my thing in college!
One of my goals for kids would be to keep their minds working but not put them into overdrive.
Ask them open ended questions, ask them why they chose that citation or why they wrote that specific paragraph.
There's also nothing wrong with going back and touching on proper grammar.

I'm currently a healthy living fitness assistant at the YMCA downtown. I've worked there for five years and I also teach group exercise classes which include boot camp, TRX suspension training and yoga. I played basketball for 15 years, year-round. I was MVP in middle school and I was a freshman on varsity in high school and a team captain from sophomore to senior year and well as on my AAU teams. I played every position but my main position was a shooting guard.
I played in college for two years and then played for the recreational team.

I am happy to meet at any location and/or come to you.
I would ask that I'm given at least two/three hours of cancellation notice.

I'm looking forward to working with students, athletes and/or student athletes to help you real your highest goals!
