"Hello! I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I have a teaching degree, and I have over four years of experience tutoring young students in math and reading. I've worked as 5th grade teacher, and currently teach ESL at a middle school. In the past I have tutored students in Spanish at UNC Charlotte.

I'm looking to tutor any student grades K-8, and English or math for high school students. As an educator, I’ve worked with struggling students in math and reading, and know how to personalize instruction to meet each student’s needs. My academic minor was Spanish, and I would love to tutor ESL or Spanish students of any grade level.

My teaching philosophy is that learning is a personal, creative experience, and that we learn best when we're having fun. Also, I believe that when we're able to relate what we're learning to real life, or to another subject, we retain the knowledge better. For example, I was amazed when I discovered that I could use the formulas I was learning in algebra to help me with my chemistry homework. These were formulas that real biologists and chemists used to solve problems, and they actually worked! I used to hate algebra until I started seeing these patterns, but then it all "clicked" and math made sense. When I work with students, I try to help them find a learning strategy that works for them so that the subject can "click" for them too.

I am willing to drive to your home for tutoring, but depending on the distance I may have to charge more per hour. If you're close by, I may charge less. I need at least 2 hours' notice of a cancellation, but I would prefer at least 24 hours.

Good luck in your studies, and I look forward to hearing from you!" less...
