Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I am a thirteen year veteran teacher, and I have taught a variety of age levels, abilities, and subjects. All of my life, I have 'been' a teacher, and now I enjoy tutoring in the one on one setting. The tutoring environment is so conducive to learning because the focus is on one child, and a teacher can incorporate his interests, learning style, and strengths! I have been tutoring 'on the side' for years (as well as the tutoring that I did while teaching-after school and in small groups during school), but now I would like this to be my 'full time' job! I believe in my teaching skills and the success, together, for your child!

As far as my 'old life' goes, my degree is in Elementary Education from the University of Texas in Austin with certification in Reading and a strong emphasis in English and writing. During my last years of teaching, I was involved in presenting and working on technology teams in Garland. During this time I wrote curriculum, trained teachers, and presented workshops. I have had Exemplary evaluations in teaching skill, classroom accountability, and interpersonal skills with students, co-workers, and the community. My students' success was what drove my success. When I taught and held the position of grade level leader in Del Valle, I completed my district G/T certification while doing my in-service requirements. During this time, I participated in a pilot online educational program through Region XIII. I also have extensive experience in Title I, both in Carrollton Farmers Branch and Del Valle ISDs.

I have taught 3rd-6th grade everything in self-contained classrooms, 7th grade Reading, prepped students for TAKS testing, tutored a high school student in Geometry, and taught summer school. As a private tutor, I tutored 2nd-7th grade students on test prep and individual subject matter--mostly reading and math I am a thirteen year veteran teacher, and I have taught a variety of age levels, abilities, and subjects.

I am an excellent teacher, enjoy working with kids, like the challenge of finding a 'new' way to present materials for understanding, and I pride myself on my past experience with students!!
