A tutor wanting to work her way out of a job!

I am a mom of 4. I have helped them since young ages with their difficulties in all subjects. They are now middle schoolers and high schoolers. Before helping my own kids, I had tutored as a volunteer since my high school years. I have worked with students of all ages. My favorite areas are high school and college level math and science, but I have the resources to help middle school and elementary aged children as well. I am an educator by profession. I have a Bachelor's in Chemistry, ... [more]

I have a Chemistry degree from Texas A&M University. I have taught science and I love science! I have helped many students bring up their grades in Chemistry by connecting it in ways that are interesting. I also show students how to use units to make calculations almost impossible to get wrong.

I will work with the student to understand and analyze the science information portion of the ACT. I will also work with your student on test taking strategies to reduce anxiety. My students have improved their scores by 5-8 points in the science area.


Elementary Math

I have taught math at various levels. I myself am experienced in math past college calculus. I have tutored elementary students since I was in high school. Recently, I developed and taught a curriculum to a third grader who was struggling in math. we measured her success by her ability to master addition and multiplication facts in addition to improved performance at school.


Special Needs

I have 12 years of experience working with my children as well as children in the community with special needs. I have a passion for teaching social skills as well academic, emotional, and physical skills. I am a mom of children with special needs, I have worked as an inclusion aid for children with special needs for 1.5 years and I have volunteered in various areas with kids with special needs for 10 years. I have sat in on several years of social skills therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy sessions and practiced those skills on a daily basis in my own home. I have worked in inclusion preschool settings to assist children with special needs. Many times, I used the same techniques to work with the regular ed preschool students. My strength lies in my patience and persistence in getting children to use their words (and eventually the appropriate words) to express their feelings and desires. I am familiar with PECS, picture communicating system. I use many sensory diet tools(rice bin, squishy balls, snug blankets, weighted blankets). I use movement in all teaching sessions. I generally incorporate specific motor skills into fun activities, the kids work even when they don't know it! I truly love helping children learn. It is a fascinating process.
