Certified Teacher Specializing in Science, Math, and English

My educational career started five years ago as an academic tutor and strategist for the University of Mississippi's Athletics Department. After completing my Chemistry degree and Biology and English minors I relocated to San Antonio, Texas with Teach for America. I earned my Teaching Certification for the State of Texas specializing in 7-12 Science. I transitioned to becoming a Full Time Private Tutor in November 2015 and have loved every session. Last year, I taught Biology at the Under... [more]


Algebra 1

I have tutored Algebra I, II and College Algebra for over three years. My students have ranged from High School to College Athletes. I have worked with students from private, public and charter schools, so I have seen a broad range of curriculums. I love to make Math fun and look forward to helping your student make quantitative gains in this challenging subject area.

Biology

I have a minor in Biology and a degree in Chemistry. I am a Certified Teacher in Texas Science Grades 7-12. I have had two years of experience teaching 7th and 8th grade science. I taught 4th and 6th grade science experiments to homeschool children for a year. I taught a Biology lab at the collegiate level. I tutored Ole Miss Athletes in Biology, Physics, and Chemistry for a year.


Geometry

I've been tutoring in Mathematics of all levels for over three years. I work hard on establishing the basics so the student feels confident and can problem solve.


Physics

I completed trigonometry based Physics I and II with labs in college with very high scores (finishing grades of As and Bs). Additionally, I tutored collegiate athletes in this subject. I use kinesthetic learning to help the formulas come to life for my students.


Prealgebra

I completed Algebra I and II, then Calculus at the high school level. In college I completed Honors Calculus I and II. I went on to tutor Mathematics for Ole Miss Athletics. I work hard on establishing the basics so the student feels confident and can problem solve.


English

My background comes from my undergraduate degree; I completed a minor in English. In addition, I studied abroad in the UK for English research and composition. Also to offer context: I received a 32 subscore in English on ACT, and a 31 subscore in Reading on ACT. I have tutored English to students for three years now from 3rd grade to the college level (English 101 and 102). All of my students have made significant quantitative growth and confidence in the subject.

Elementary Math

I have tutored Mathematics for three years. My clients range in age from 3rd grade and all the way up to the collegiate level. My focus in Elementary Math is from grades 3-6. I have worked with several clients in a weekly schedule for a full semester. All of my students have received passing grades, if not special recognition. I also specialize in standardized test taking strategies. I have helped students by conducting a mini summer school to aid in their second attempt to pass the state exam.


Elementary Science

My background and credentials are that I am a Certified Teacher in Texas Science Grades 7-12. I have had two years of experience teaching middle school science. I also have a degree in Chemistry, with a minor in Biology. Before teaching in Texas I taught 4th and 6th grade science to homeschool children for a year. I have tutored in Math and Science for 6 years for students as young as nine years old.


Elementary (K-6th)

I have previously taught 4th and 6th grade science for a homeschooled family. I worked with them and some of their colleagues for a year. I have tutored kids for over 6 years in a variety of ages. In addition I was a girl scout mentor and tutor for four years. Currently, I am now a certified teacher in the state of Texas for Science specifically. I have tutored 6th graders in science for two years.


Study Skills

I have taught middle school for two years and focused on study skills in my classroom. In addition, I have been tutoring for three years with students from grades 3 to college athletes. I show them how they can maximize their time and leverage their strengths to absorb the most information possible. We work on organization as well. In fact I have even done several back pack clean outs and locker organization sessions. I'm a full service teacher/tutor. In my time as a full time teacher I taught a class called "Pride Time". We went over basic skills like test taking strategies or study skills. I have taught study skills to over 260 students and shared with them how to study for academic success. I help them to identify what type of learner they are and how to use their strengths so they absorb information faster.


Special Needs

My background and credentials include two years in as a full time teacher. I oversaw 30 special education students each year. I offered multiple accommodations daily to these students. In addition I offered accommodations in my tutoring after school. I have taught and tutor students with dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, mental handicaps, emotional disorders, physical handicaps, autism, aspergers, and other learning disabilities.


ADHD

My background and credentials included working with ADD or ADHD students for four years. Also, I have been a full time instructor for two years following my students ARDs and documented modifications. I have tutored athletes with severe ADD and learned how to best accommodate their hyperactivity. I catered my lesson to allow more movement and productive physical activity. It is essential that students with ADD or ADHD have an avenue to channel their energy. I create lessons that allow them to move while staying engaged. I also use videos and engaging presentations to help with their focus.


Dyslexia

I have two years of formal teaching experience teaching Dyslexic students. As a tutor I have worked with two students twice a week for a semester to improve their literacy skills and leverage their problem solving skills. In addition, I have completed training with The International Dyslexia Association to help them create strategies to aid those students in their progress. After this 8hr certification I passed the exam on the first attempt. I have learned from my Dyslexic students in the past that cursive is challenging to read and my notes or comments must be written in clear print. I have also learned that colored paper helps their absorption of material. In addition, I have used fill in the blank notes in the past to help the students stay focused and use our time more wisely.


Genetics

My background and credentials include a biology minor. In this minor I completed a four hour course on genetics. This course included lectures, tests, and lab assignments. I lead study groups with my peers for tests and prep for laboratory assignments. Following the completion of the course and my high grade I reached out to the genetics professor of research. I did research with my genetics professor the following year including going abroad to get more data.


STAAR

I have taught middle school science for two years. Both of these years we have focused on STAAR prep everyday. I know how to access all of the TEKS and the difference between a supporting TEK and a readiness TEK. I have been taught how to evaluate a students results to help them determine where they struggled most. I also have access to study guides and test prep for all STAAR exams. I have administered six STAAR practice exams and three official STAAR exams to 26 students.
