Great Expectations Tutoring
I have over 10 years teaching experience. My experience ranges from K-12 English and Language Arts and K-8 Mathematics. I am in the process of getting my TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), so if a student is struggling with English because if a language barrier, I am also able to help those students as well. In addition, I have taught in 3 different Special Education classrooms which included students on the Autism Spectrum. I have also taught various English (ESL) and GED courses at the Community College of Southern Nevada.
As a professional tutor, I enjoy the freedom of being able to teach and instruct without the bureaucracy and red tape of curriculum discussion and scheduling. My clients win because they have a capable teacher/tutor, and I win because I have more autonomy over how I do what I do.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I have an abundance of English Language Arts, English Language Learners and Math curriculum that I can bring to assess new students. However, I realize that most students need more immediate help. They need a tutor who can help them with real-time homework. If this is the case, I actually work side by side with my clients.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been trained in a classroom management program called Love and Logic. I have also completed the Behavior Management Strategies by Ron Leaf that helps education professionals work with students within the Autism spectrum,
Shurley Grammar (a music and poetry based Grammar and writing program)
TESOL certification in Progress(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)
Bachelor's in Business Management and Spanish

I have also recently had my thesis published by the Society of Biblical Literature and GRIN Publishing, a German academic publisher.
