About Toya

I have been tutoring English as a Second Language (ESL) for more than 10 years in a volunteer capacity. Helping others get ahead is my passion! I taught for the Henrico County Public School System for two years and then worked as an IT professional for 8 years. I can help with accent reduction and vocabulary building, confidence building, and vocational enhancement. I am excellent at helping students demonstrate confidence when they speak in professional settings.

If you are interested in improving your English conversation and expressing yourself more freely, then I am the perfect tutor for you!

I use a tutoring system that has worked wonders for years! I was also recently trained by LINCS, a nationally recognized adult literacy program.

I utilize the USCIS civics test preparation system for permanent residents who want to become citizens. I also utilize a basic bible study program for beginning and intermediate ESL students.

Contact me to learn more about me and my various programs. We can schedule your lessons when it's convenient for you.

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.

Algebra 1

I am certified to teach middle school math in the state of Virginia. I taught grades 6 - 8 for Henrico County Public Schools before switching careers in 2008. My 7th-grade students scored 12% higher across the grade-level with my methodologies when I was in the classroom. I love the subject of Mathematics, and find it easy to explain.

Bible Studies

I have provided bible study lessons for more than 10 years in two different churches on a volunteer basis. The name of the study is "FriendSpeak," and it was copyrighted in 2009. I have taught for the Three Chopt Church of Christ and the Glen Allen Church of Christ, both in Richmond, Virginia.

ESL/ESOL

I received training from LINCS, a national adult literary organization. I have been leading ESL bible studies at local churches for several years now. I also assist students with USCIS Civics test preparations.

Prealgebra

I taught pre-algebra to seventh and eighth grade students for Henrico County Public schools. My seventh graders showed a 12% higher SOL test score average across the grade level.

USCIS

I have been teaching American Civics for about 6 months now to three individuals from Latin American countries. I have the students use flash cards and practice reading the short lessons that cover the 100 questions which appear on the test. Since the students only have to get six out of ten questions correct during their interview, it is not a difficult task. I have also visited the field office for our local USCIS in Norfolk, Virginia.
