Currently, I run an afterschool tutoring program in a private school in Arlington, Texas. I would be happy to help your child reach his or her learning goals. I have helped many students gain confidence and succeed through my critical thinking teaching methods. These methods take time, but they are very successful in helping each student develop lifelong skills.... [more]

In all the tests out there today, reading comprehension is the key to success. Teaching students to look for context clues and main ideas are essential to them building their skills.
I worked with elementary students for over 6 years in different school systems including Irving ISD. I aided,tested, and at times taught K-5. I enjoy aiding children in the learning and reading process. I am currently a volunteer in the Learning Zone in Arlington.
Over the years, I have helped many students grow in their phonetic abilities. I have worked with K-2, in the public schools, for several years. If a student is not understanding the phonics, I will search for another way to help him or her. Usually, I address all the vowel sounds first and then I move on to consonant blends. I like the student to see how the words blend together. I, always, give them little sayings that will help them pronounce the word. For example, when two vowels go a walking the first one does the talking. In the word "road", we only hear the letter "O" sound. Usually, one method clicks with the student and they start to understand. I have been very successful in this area of teaching.
In Irving ISD and Arlington ISD, I assisted students with Special Needs. These particular student needed help in all subjects. I have administered the standardized testing for various Special Ed. students. I have been told, by other staff members, that I do a good job with keeping students on task. I am currently pursuing a teaching certification and I have many valuable training sessions from each school district.
For several years, I was involved in raising money for a non-profit mission. I had to speak in front of large groups. I had to learn several skill to insure success. I joined Toastmaster and later became the president of my local chapter.
