Hi Families, I have been teaching part-time since 2004. I have teaching experience working in elementary classrooms as a substitute teacher in addition to tutoring 1:1 or in small groups in tutoring centers and private homes. For the past 10 years, I have worked part-time as an Online Certified Teacher for different companies in addition to being self-employed with my own classes. Most of my teaching experience has been with elementary age children, but I also have experience working with middle and high school students with English skills. I have experience working in-person and online with both native English speakers and ESL students. I have a warm, engaging, and encouraging teaching style. I enjoy being organized and helpful to students. Sometimes students have even told me that they "are surprised the class is already over, that it was fun for them, and that they wish they could stay longer!" In addition to teaching, I have also been a published children's author.
I have around 20 years of part-time teaching experience working in classrooms as well as teaching online individuals, small groups, and whole classes. I am state certified to teach both General and Special Education students, including those who speak English as their second language. I have a Masters degree in Elementary Education, K-8th Teaching Certificate, K-12th Special Education Endorsement, and a TESOL certificate (150 hours for that ESL certificate). I have a B.A. in Psychology.
