I am a full time teacher's aide working in Aledo ISD. I am also a recent graduate of The University of Texas at Austin where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in English with minors and substantial hours in Biology, Chemistry, and Spanish. My teaching experience is mainly with elementary school children (specifically pre-K kindergarteners). However, I find teaching and interacting with any age to be a great experience! I feel that working with high school students is especially rewarding because a student’s best subjects in high school sometimes determine the path he or she will take in higher education. Due to my involvement in marching band leadership (in both high school and college), I am very experienced and feel very comfortable interacting with older kids. While I tutor many different subjects, I feel most passionate about English, Writing, and Biology. These are the classes with which I was most involved with in school, and they are also the ones I most enjoy. My tutoring philosophy is to practice, to inspire, and to get a student to a point where he or she genuinely learns to understand the material. I tutor patiently and constructively, making sure I quickly identify and work to bring out a student’s strengths before addressing his or her weaknesses. Confidence is so helpful in improvement! At UT, I spent time playing clarinet in the Longhorn Band. I am very passionate about music – both listening and playing – so marching band is a great hobby! With any extra time outside of marching band and school, I enjoy swimming, running, reading Shakespeare plays, and the outdoors.
