About April

I hold a valid Texas Teaching Certificate in Secondary Composite Science, which means I am certified to teach all sciences grades 6-12. Since I can teach all sciences through high school, I can also teach below that level. I was a full-time classroom teacher for 10 years. In that time, I taught Physics, Chemistry, and Integrated Physics and Chemistry (aka IPC or physical science). Unfortunately, health issues forced me out of a profession that I dearly love. In the 1.5 years since I left the classroom, I have worked taking care of a child and most recently have begun tutoring. In the last few months since I started tutoring, I have found once again my love and passion for teaching and helping students. I have learned that tutoring one child at a time is SO much better than teaching in a classroom. I get to know my students and get to truly help them. Most of the students I have helped and/or are helping, are high school math students. Because my degree is in science, I had to take lots of math. Also, as a high school science teacher, I had to teach a lot of math in order to help students do their work. In order to do my best for my students, I communicate with the student's teacher (if the situation warrants and parent approves) in order to stay up on what the child is working on, needs to get done, etc.

I will be more than happy to provide a copy of my teaching certificate, resume and/or professional and personal references if requested.
