I spent most of my 29 year teaching career in 3rd and 4th grade. I am certified bilingual/bilcultural. I began teaching in 1979 and have taught skills required for Texas testing standards, TEAMS, TAKS, and others over my 29 years of experience. Therefore, I have learned how to teach these skills in many ways, which is important since everyone has different learning styles and abilities. I love teaching whether it be children or adults.
I have spent the last four years teaching English to adults from many countries. Grammar, reading, writing and listening skills have all been a part of this adult education. My strengths besides education include patience and caring about the needs of the individual student.
I taught elementary grammar for 29 years on a daily basis. Yet as I began teaching adults English grammar, I broadened my knowledge of grammar tremendously. Teaching English grammar to foreign adult students has been much more intense and rewarding.
As an elementary teacher for 29 years teaching all curriculum I feel that I am very qualified to teach any subject and skill. I spent 2 years after retirement tutoring in a school where test scores were below standards. I tutored math, writing and reading in third, fourth, and fifth grades. Their scores improved markedly.
If you are an adult and need to read, write and speak English I can help you achieve that goal. If you have a child that is having difficulty in their subjects at school I can help your child be successful. Contact me if you want a kind, patient person to help you become the successful person you deserve to become. I spent most of my 29 year teaching career in 3rd and 4th grade.

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.
I have a Texas Teaching certificate. I have a B.S. In Elementary Education with a Minor in Art from Southwest Texas State University. I have a Bilingual/ESL Certification from Our Lady of the Lake University. I retired after 29 years of teaching in 2003.
