Reading

I use flash cards and illustrated books to teach reading to the younger children. I emphasize phonics as it is the basis of our language.


Geography

Geography is a subject that a lot of Americans do not have extensive knowledge of. I have 15 credit hours in geography as an undergrad. I find it to be a very interesting subject.


English

I start with what the child knows in terms of pronunciation and phonics and work from there. Without the proper knowledge of phonics and sounding out words, it interferes with the reading process. Dictionary use is emphasized in order for child to use research and learning words on their own.


ESL/ESOL

I am a master's degree student and am very good at writing papers and helping students with their English. I have assisted many foreign students with their essays in which they received very good grades.


Government & Politics

I have a certificate in Public Personnel Administration and in Public Administration.

GED


TOEFL

Great at English and can teach reading and speaking.


Desktop Publishing

I have had 16 hours in graphics education, and worked for a publishing company and a newspaper.


Sociology

I have 21 credit hours in sociology as an undergraduate. Teaching of different cultures in our country as well as other countries is emphasized. Students will learn how other societies are the same as well as different than their own culture and customs.


Tax Accounting

I worked for both Jackson Hewitt and Liberty Tax. I completed the course for Liberty Tax in Cleveland, TN.


Microsoft Publisher

I have 16 credit hours in Graphics and Advertising. I have used Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw and Publisher. I worked for a publishing company in graphics and for the local newspaper.
