"I have a Master's in Education with K-12 ESL Specialist credentials and am currently pursuing a Doctorate in Education in Leadership. I am certified by the State of Colorado with a Professional Teacher License with endorsement in English Language Arts, and looking forward to a second endorsement in Linguistically Diverse Education. My first language is Spanish and second is English.

Actually I am teaching English as a second language, and social science to a specific diverse student population and helping them develop competence and confidence through a balance of acquired basic skills and developing competence and understanding. I have taught Spanish to elementary, middle and high school students and adults, beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels; classes were conducted exclusively in Spanish. I have performed all duties of a regular classroom teacher. I have taught Introduction to Literature to ELA students, anatomy and biology to high school students. In elementary and middle school I have taught English, math, and science to Hispanic students and American students. I encourage students to keep motivated, using a lot of communication methodology.

In my experience as a tutor, I can definitely say that it is one of the most enjoyable jobs a person can have. The reason is tutoring is not about providing direct answers to students, nor is it about doing assignments, but rather about being a wonderful and great contributor to student success. My experience as a tutor has been merely the devotion to student success. As a tutor I have offered help in reading to children with dyslexia or other reading difficulties that were in the need of a great deal of supplemental instruction to improve their proficiency. Besides reading difficulties I assisted students with math problems by providing skill reinforcement.

As an educator it is my responsibility to prepare my students for the real world, but as a tutor I will apply my knowledge of child development to help take your child's academic skills to the next" less...
