I am a Texas certified English and reading teacher with 10 years of classroom experience. I am most proud of my eight years teaching middle school English, where we showed an increase and improvement with our special education, 504, and bilingual students. It became my calling to work with students that have diverse needs and require individualized attention. I understood that it was my responsibility to adapt and design my teaching lessons to the way they see the world, and help them succeed in it. My duties ranged from classroom teacher, team leader, ELA Department Head, UIL One Act Play director, UIL Impromptu sponsor, and teacher mentor.
For two years, I taught high school early college English classes for the UpWard Bound program, and would love to help your child meet their graduation goals.

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.
In my ten years of classroom teaching experience I have had several special needs and low performing students. I've combine both their state standard IEP (individualized education growth plan) and specialized teaching methods to reach each student's success plan. It is extremely important to first observe and interact with each child to find their specific thought process in order to facilitate and give them tools that will help them succeed. For example, a student can be motivated by sound, so creating an atmosphere of sounds or music while letting them work through the math problem aloud will satisfy both their internal and external triggers.
I have also been a special populations testing coordinator, so I am also aware of state regulations for special education, 504, and bilingual population.
