About Pamela

My name is Ms. Pamela. Thank you for considering me to assist your student. :) As an educational consultant I've supported elementary to college age students since 2009. I provide targeted core subject support, test preparation (STAAR, SAT/ACT), Language Arts, Math, Science, Soc. Studies, History, and Essay Writing instruction). Additionally, I've directed high school students in the college application process. I specialize in directing students in development of effective study habits/routines which results in increased organizational skills, focus capabilities, confidence levels and intrinsic (self) motivation. As an Academic Coach, I assist students in identifying and overcoming roadblocks that impede their ability to be successful in both academics and career development. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Multidisciplinary Studies (Double Major in Education, Counseling, Minor in Computer Science), and an advanced degree in Counseling/Life Coaching.

Does your student need targeted core subject support, homework assistance, a boost in confidence, intrinsic motivation, test prep, or rediscover how fun learning and accomplishment truly is? Within weeks of starting sessions, your student will show positive results! Because each student is unique in his/her academic challenges, learning should be engaging and rewarding. My lesson plans are based on the TEKS (state mandated standards) and are differentiated to each student's learning preferences, interests and/or readiness. I also work with classroom teachers to ensure timely submission of assignments and adequate preparation is made for exams/quizzes.

Methodologies include traditional one-on-one instruction (elementary school - college), cooperative small group learning and online support (high school through college.) Students in 3rd through 12th grades are engaged through age appropriate, interactive computer programs and activities which reinforce the classroom instructors' current curriculum. I also offer my students unlimited online practice support outside of session times.

I also provide higher level learners online targeted support, college application submission, essay writing, study skills and career and personal development.

There are times when only providing academic support doesn't alleviate the problem. Both students and parents sometimes experience challenges in difficult circumstances. Adverse circumstances can affect academics and inhibit a person's ability to focus, establish short or long term goals and even contribute to emotional shutdown. If you or your child is experiencing these types of issues, as a life coach I assist individuals of all ages develop greater clarity through problem solving, goal setting, improving interpersonal skills and increasing emotional/cognitive development. In these cases students and parents must share common goals and experiences that help them regain momentum in a more positive direction.

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.


In my alternative certification program I studied various types of learning disabilities and their corresponding challenges they present to students (i.e. ADD/ADHD and how it affects cognitive abilities).

Additionally I have 10+ years experience working specifically with children who have ADD/ADHD (I have two children, each with ADHD/ADD) and I assisted the majority of former tutor students with the challenges associated with ADD/ADHD such as focus and distractability difficulties, and the development of time management, organization, pro-activeness and goal-setting skills.

Bible Studies

I have several years experience teaching Bible studies and AWANAS for children ages 5-14. As a staff member of the children's ministry with two churches over the past fifteen years, I love teaching children about God, His Word and His creation. My curriculum covers character Scripture memorization, character development, and the practical application of God's Word. I also cover who God is and the various ways in which He reveals Himself to us.

Career Development

As I earned my B.S. in Multi-disciplinary Studies (Major Education, and Minors Counseling, Computer Science) I studied quite a bit about personalities, how to ascertain interests, learning styles and have a particular interest in helping others through career development. Having also worked in corporate environments for the last 15 years and privately owned and operated a company which provided tutoring services for students based on learning preferences, styles and personal interests. The assessment tools used can be utilized and very effective for students of any age and area very helpful in career development as well.

College Counseling

Selecting a college and lifelong career can certainly be daunting. In my B.S. in Multidisciplinary Studies (emphasis in Counseling), I believe students need help in identifying just exactly which career direction inspires, motivates and leads them as successful, positive and contributing members of society. It is crucial that students first know themselves and have a firm understanding of who they are as individuals, their strengths, weaknesses, natural learning tendencies and an idea of their overall purpose. I have received training in identifying the various assessment tools used to ascertain student's personality, IQ, interests, etc.


I have supported students with dyslexia and other special needs since 2005. Using varied methodologies such as the Irlen color overlays, I assist with a variety of reading, learning and attention problems. Many originate from a sensitivity to light and black/white contrast and cognitive functionality issues. Each special needs student is unique! After identifying each dyslexic student's correct overlay color performance is improved in brain functionality and reduced eye strain thus improving reading fluency and comprehension.

Elementary (K-6th)

I love teaching elementary age students! Seeing the light in a student's eyes with the look of sudden recognition in their countenance is priceless! For the past nine years I've taught students from pre-K to 6th grade in all subjects (including study skills).

In this stage of development it is crucial for students to develop a positive outlook of learning and form effective study skills. Positive habits established now will make parents' jobs and student's lives so much easier in high school, college and years to come. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Multi-Disciplinary Studies (Dbl Major in Education, Counseling and Minor in Computer Science).

Elementary Math

For the past 10 years I've taught students from Pre-K to 9th grade as a generalist (all subjects, inclusive of mathematics).

In this stage of development having a good foundation in mathematics (multiplication, fractions, pre-algebra) is crucial to understanding the more difficult concepts to be introduced (algebra, geometry, logic and statistics) in the next few years.


Initially I studied the basics of nutrition and its effect on cognitive functionality and health out of necessity. As a teacher who supports special needs children (and a parent with two myself) I have considerable experience studying how cognitive functionality is enhanced through diet, physical exercise, vitamin supplements and the lessening of brain over-stimulation. For example, the ADD/ADHD brain processes information differently, requiring less processed sugars, flours and needing more Omega 3 fatty oils and protein. This aids by naturally enhancing focus abilities, lessens distractability and maximizes cognitive functionality in general.


During my ten years of teaching, although I've supported students of all ages, I specialize in working with pre-k to 6th graders. I love working with those students who struggle in emergent reading because I use various fun and age-appropriate teaching strategies that encourage letter and word recognition, a solid foundation for reading fluency is developed, and a lifelong love of learning is created.


Having a good understanding of pre-algebra is necessary in order to do well in higher levels of mathematics. I have several years' experience teaching students pre-algebraic concepts which usually introduced in 5th grade. A few of the basic concepts include using properties of multiplication, solving for variables, evaluating expressions involving decimals, fractions and mixed numbers, writing expressions and working with exponents.


Having a good foundation in Reading is essential for students to be successful. Fluency and comprehension quite often are areas where students struggle as they are developing emergent reading skills. Once the student improves they feel more confident of their abilities, learning becomes less tedious and more enjoyable.

Study Skills

As part of my academic content pursuant to my undergraduate degree, I studied the different learning styles and the modalities dominant in each. I feel that I have a great handle on what type of activities a student would need to perform. For example, if a parent had a preferred visual learning style, and was encouraging the child to learn how he learns, there is a good chance if the child is kinesthetic, that he would have tremendous difficulty absorbing the lesson content. I teach with a differentiated strategy that identifies the student's preference and offers lesson activities that cater to that modality.


As a former competitive diver and swimmer, I know first hand how swimming can positively influence a person's character, and confidence level - not to mention obvious physical benefits. I'm experienced in swimming instruction with elementary age children, completed water safety instruction and first aid certification. Swimming strokes included are freestyle, backstroke, sidestroke and breaststroke. I coach with praise and encouragement at each step, reminding them to never give up! Confidence, tenaciousness, and endurance are a few intrinsic benefits that come from sports participation. The thrill of reaching a long-awaited goal resulting from being focused, disciplined and committed prepares a child for the similar challenges that come later in life. :)


I've taught TAKS test preparation for the past four years for elementary age students in all subjects. This also includes study skills, focus development exercises, goal setting and test anxiety strategies.

Great tutor !

When my step son moved from Puerto Rico the summer of 2013 we noticed he needed help in vocabulary and essays. We worked with his own teachers but the following summer before his senior year we found Pam after a long search. She has not only been amazing with Giovanni as an English tutor but has even helped him work through situations that had been causing him anxiety. This is what he wrote about
