About Betty

I am a versatile and dedicated child advocate with a solid focus on the individual needs of students. I am kindhearted and empathetic, but most of all, I am flexible and accommodating in the design and implementation of inspiring hands-on lessons. I enjoy using music, videos, and employing wide-ranging resources to enhance learning. Students will feel comfortable in and confident in their abilities during our lessons. I desire to impart my love of learning to children to help them enjoy school and be successful.

In order to help kids as much as possible, I earned my Masters degree in Elementary Reading, I know, and research proves, that children MUST read on grade level by the 3rd grade to be able to meet the increasing demands of today's world. This ongoing challenge to all Americans is what motivates me each day to help students.

I have been teaching for over 10 years, and during this time I have found a special place in my heart for students with special needs. My certification in Special Education was just the beginning of my experience and I have spent a lot of time researching and developing first-class lessons designed with the individual in mind.

I have earned a Texas Educator Certificate that certifies that I have fulfilled requirements of state law and regulations of the State Board for Educator Certification. And that certification authorizes me to perform educational and academic related duties.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have earned a Bachelor's and Master's degrees, along with Texas Teacher Certification in Special Education. Today, I especially enjoy teaching elementary-aged boys and girls that have had labels put on them for behavior they are not able to control. The light that comes into their eyes when they meet a caring teacher that is there for them and their needs, makes my life full and my job easier.

STAAR

I have administrated standardized testing for grades 3-6 many times. Teaching the knowledge and skills required for a student to pass the STAAR is very challenging for student and teacher alike. Through careful research and study, I have successfully tutored many students to pass the STAAR and move on to the next set of challenges.

Patient and Knowledgeable — Betty has been very supportive of finding ways to teach Jaci her lessons - as Jaci has a short attention span. She made her a great book with fun things in it that helped teach her student, but kept her interest as well. Her student really likes her and that is the first must!! She keeps her involved and wanting to do her work. Thank you! ...
