English And Spanish Tutoring
I have been tutoring English since high school, and teach English full time! In addition to my years of tutoring experience, I am able to pull valuable classroom resources to make one on one learning as effective as possible. In addition to being a certified English teacher, I am also bilingual (English/Spanish) and certifed in ESL.
I love helping people! I went into education because I wanted to make a difference in people's lives and help them realize their potential! I especially enjoy one-on-one tutoring because I am able to give my students customized help in exactly what they need.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
The first time I meet with a new student I like to zero in on exactly which skills they're looking to sharpen and what their goals are. From there, we get to work!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a certified English teacher in the state of Texas.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Pricing for services varies (ie. proof reading, grammar tutoring, writing, etc.). Please contact me for prices.
How did you get started teaching?
I have always been told that I had a knack for explaining things. Teaching came very naturally to me from a young age when I tutored students at my middle and then high school. Since graduating college, I have been a full time English teacher.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with all ages from 8-60! Any age is a good age to learn.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Though I've been stuck at home during the quarentine, my husband and I have made it our goal to cook something that we've never tried at home before every day! We've been having a lot of fun learning new recipes.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Make sure your tutor has experience tutoring and teaching! Classroom teachers have lots of experience with both :)
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
As teachers, we want to help! It's our job and what makes us happy. If you don't understand something, be specific. A blank page doesn't show your teacher what you do and don't know.
