I have more than 7 years tutor and substitute teaching experience. I have taught at all grades and levels of students. To be a substitute teacher a background check and drug test must be passed--I have passed both of those and am still in compliance. I enjoy tutoring because I believe that everyone needs a little help from a patient person sometimes.

I have previous tutor experience in k-6th grades. I have tutored students at these grade levels in various subjects, including reading, writing, math and literature. I also have been a substitute teacher for 7 years in two school districts. Substitute teaching requires knowledge of various subjects including math/reading/writing and many others, depending on who I am filing in for that day. As a substitute I have to be knowledgeable in all fields, especially that of primary school education. I am proficient in the subjects of math, science and reading/English. For example, A day sub teaching in 3rd grade math, requires me to know multiplication, subtraction, division, fractions; to be able to help children with their studies. The same is true for sub teaching for example for a first grade class, teaching students how to read and write. In addition, I have passed and received high scores on the ACT, SAT and GRE tests. These tests have writing, science and math portions you must pass to go to college. The GRE test I had to pass to obtain my master's degree. In passing these tests, I feel that I am more than qualified to tutor students for primary education in k-6th grades.
I have a bachelors degree and Masters in Communications. While obtaining my degrees, I had to take many public speaking courses and English courses. I passed all with flying colors! I also am currently employed by a television news station, where speaking in front of a lot of people every day is required, as well as written communication. I am fluent in English as it is my native tongue. I teach English, reading, writing and public speaking which is all part of speech.
