I am currently an 8th grade math teacher. I have been teaching math now for five years. I also am a certified special education teacher. I have a bachelor's degree in Sociology with a minor in dance (I know weird combo). I graduated from Texas Woman's University back in 2008. I tutored on the side while in college and loved it. I did different subjects such as chemistry, anatomy, and science labs.
I have been tutoring my 8th grade students for the past four years. I have done 8th grade math (pre algebra) for that time and continue to tutor them because I enjoy seeing them succeed. I always hear students tell me "I have never been good at math", "I hate math", those are not the words I hear after we have worked together. I hear "finally it makes more sense".
I feel math is a language. To learn and get better at math you have to practice, practice and practice some more. I have taught very diverse learners, not every person learns the same way. What makes me a wonderful tutor/teacher, is my positivity, encouragement, patience and my experience with many diverse learners. Math is the same language everywhere, let's just practice!
I have worked with students with special needs for over six years and not one is the same. It takes a special person to be a great special needs tutor. I have a big heart, compassion, and structure. I have grown up around special needs students, my mom was a special education teacher for over 10 years, and has now been a special education coordinator for 14 yrs. I have been a special education teacher for 4 years and I wouldn't trade it for anything!
I am here for you! The biggest part of all this, is to feel like someone believes you can you do it!

Erica worked with my daughter on fractions. Fractions within a word problem, adding, subtracting, and multiplying. My daughter says the games helped her. She is looking forward to showing her teacher what she has learned.
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.
