"I live to write, and I love to teach as much as I love to learn! I'm a published author currently pursuing a master's in liberal arts at Houston Baptist University, and planning to take classes at Reformed Theological Seminary to begin pursuing my master's of religion this summer. I adore literature, and I think that anyone is capable of being passionate about a good book if given the tools to read it properly; I love history, and think that anyone can be passionate about the past if they understand its enormous impact on the present. I enjoy spending my spare time with my family -I'm the oldest of eight, so that includes a lot of time chasing ...

" I remember the personal difficulties I encountered when I first began learning Spanish and I make a point to use this to relate to my students and tap into their needs. I love explaining complex concepts in a simple way and seeing my students get excited about learning Spanish. All of my students receive simplified materials and practice worksheets to solidify their Spanish learning. Being bilingual is one of the most rewarding experiences, especially in a global world where employers are looking for candidates with special attributes. Even having the ability to strike up a conversation in Spanish opens up a whole new world of ...

" I tutor a wide variety of subjects, but I especially love to prepare students for standardized testing and college entrance exams. I've learned that success on standardized tests depends on the strategy with which the student approaches the test.

I find that these strategies give students the confidence to succeed."

"I fell in love with the study of ancient languages and their respective literatures and cultures. My aim in tutoring is to instill a similar love for language in all its forms in my students. I have taught Latin at the college level, but I am eager to work more closely with students at all levels one on one, tailoring my methods to meet their individual needs, while keeping Latin both fun and rewarding, as it should be. I just moved back to the Houston area after almost ten years away in college and graduate school, and I look forward to reconnecting with my home and sharing what I've learned in my time away!." ...

"In college at Baylor University, I continued helping friends when they needed it and became a tutor for Waco ISD. I completed my degree in Secondary Education with teaching fields in History and English. I enjoy studying pretty much anything in history, but my main focus has been American, Texas and British histories. I love both reading and writing in the English/Language Arts area, and I like to foster at least an interest, if not a passion, in my students for both."
