Currently I am working as a High School Math teacher teaching Algebra 2. I am certified to teach 4-8 generalist in Texas. I have also had many years of experience tutoring all levels of students. Every year the local tutoring company that I work with organizes math and reading camps for disadvantaged students. I have had quite a bit of success in working with these children and I enjoy finding creative learning methods that are effective with this age group.
This will be my 7th year employed as a Special Education Case Manager and Math Co-Teacher at the high school level. I thoroughly enjoy working with Special Needs students and feel that my teaching style is very compatible. To be successful a teacher/tutor must build a personal relationship with each student and realize that each student optimally learns in their unique way and must teach in a style that suitable for that student.
I have worked as a Math Co-Teacher and Special Ed Case Manager for 6 years. Therefore I have a vast amount of experience working with children who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
I am currently being trained in to lead the Autism program at my high school and have extensive experience working with Autistic students.
Through my experience working in Special Education, I have worked with numerous students that are afflicted with Dyslexia. One of my children was diagnosed as Dyslexic also.
Hard of Hearing
I have taught several students who are hearing impaired and have experience in this field.
I feel that I would be a very adequate tutor for preparation of the ISEE test. I have taught math since I started teaching in 2005 and this is the most prominent section that students struggle with. I teach all aspects of the ISEE test and have sufficient experience to teach and review required concepts.
I am currently an Algebra 2 teacher at a high school in Spring ISD in Spring, Texas. I have 6 classes of on level students and they are the last of the TAKS students. We work often with our students on TAKS practice as most schools do. Today, coincidentally, I got back the scores of my students and out of 103 students 92 passed. I am very thorough and patient with my students and I work to build confidence in them as many have test and math anxiety. I feel that I am very successful in helping my students to overcome their phobias and fears.
