"I am a Tri-lingual teacher (English, Spanish, and French) with a B.S. Ed in Elementary Education from Baylor University and a M.A. in English from UNLV. I have had 10 years experience in Secondary Language Arts at the middle and high school levels, focused primarily in 6th and 9th grades in the Clark County School District. I have also been a part-time instructor in composition at UNLV. My prior experience at the Elementary level, consists of: having done my student teaching in Escondido and Vista California through National University and having spent time as a substitute teacher in the Little Rock, AR School District, of which I am a product I believe in working with students where they are and developing a love of learning. I think early success and consistent advancement are the keys to growth, and that a love of learning is much more important than any individual skill. I look forward to working with students of all ages and skill levels to help them reach their goals.

My main asset as a tutor is a wide content knowledge and a willingness to treat students with dignity and belief in their ability to grow no matter how "far behind" they may believe themselves to be. All learning is growth and all learners are ready with certain skills at different rates. A tutoring situation allows for these differences and keeps a student from being "bored" by either repeating skills that have already been mastered, simply because they are "part of the course" or because they are being presented with material for which they are not yet ready for much the same reason.

Thank you for considering me to help you achieve your dreams!" less...
