I attended Texas A & M University-San Antonio and received my Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies. I also have my Masters from Concordia University-Portland
in Career and Technical Education. This is a field that helps those students who are not looking for a 4 year university, but a 2 year degree, technical trade, or just guidance in what career path that will make them happy. I have been teaching high school for over 5 years and I enjoy every day that I spend with my students. I have have helped students with passing the STAAR test and the English I and English II EOC STAAR exams. In addition to these exams, I have also helped high school seniors prepare for the TSI (formally the Accuplacer) exam so they are college English ready.
I tutor in English, from elementary through 1st year college English. I love to help students with their writing so they can create beautiful essays. English, I believe, is the subject that many students have the most difficulty with.
My tutoring style is talking with the student, finding out what their big issues are, and working with them to help build their confidence.
It is important that my students feel comfortable with the content they are learning from me. I look at every situation as a small barrier for us to get through together, it is never "your" difficulty, it is "ours".
