About Sandra

I have been a teacher and tutor of English/History for almost 7 years and have worked in both Middle School and High school. I always discuss the needs of my new pupils very carefully and aim to build their confidence in the subject. I find that practice in exam techniques invariably helps to rapidly improve grades. I am certified to teach both English language arts and Social studies 4-8. I'm currently working to attain my Master's degree in educational leadership.

I have been teaching for 6 years going on my seventh year. I am both a Content leader for Humanities and Grade Team Leader for my 11th Grade team. I am very patient and enjoy helping others to learn. My pupils have fun while they study and are always proud of their progress. I try to encourage a genuine interest in any subject studied. My aim is always to raise the achievements of my pupils beyond their own expectations with challenging and rewarding lessons.

I am currently a teaching AP US History to juniors in high school.

My tutoring hours are different from online and in-person. My online hours are 6pm-9pm Wed & Th. In-person are from 10am-12pm on most Saturdays

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.

American History

I have been teaching AP US HISTORY at my high school. This year my results were 99% passing with 29% commended rating. Highest at that particular school. I am still waiting for my AP test results to come in.

Fitness

I am a former US Marine and currently in the US Army. I have 1 year of PE Coaching as a paraprofessional for Ford Elementary. I am a former junior high track and field star before joining JROTC in high school.

Grammar

I am certified by the state to teach ENGLISH to 4-8 grade. As a high school AP US History teacher we are constantly trained in proofreading and English grammar as well as word usage. My AP Exam includes 2 writing essay and 4 short answer essays in order to pass the exam.

Martial Arts

I have been training in the discipline of Muay Thai for over one year. I will be testing in my first certification under Ajarn Kayan in late June for level 1 basics. I have also trained MMA and BJJ but not enough to be comfortable in teaching it.

Social Studies

I currently teach 6 and 7 grade social studies. 6th grade World Cultures and 7th grade Texas History. I tutor ELA for STAAR in both 6 and 7 grade as well as for 8th grade STAAR US History. I am a certified 4-8 ELA/Social Studies teacher and will soon be challenging 11th grade US History. I am also currently the Content Lead at my campus.

STAAR

High school STAAR US History results: 99% passing with 29% commended. Currently teaching 11th AP US HISTORY starting my 2nd year. Results for APUSH are currently pending.
