I am currently pursuing a degree in Child Development with a minor in Speech Language Pathology from the University of Texas at Dallas. My experience working with children began at an early age but the abundance of my experience comes from being a Transitional Kindergarten teacher at a private preschool. The main focus of my classroom is providing foundational learning that is in accordance with the Texas Kindergarten curriculum for those students who are not yet able to enter Kindergarten due to mandated age requirements. Along with abundant experience with all preschool years, I have assisted children in many elementary grade levels. My strongest subjects to tutor are English, reading, phonics and elementary math. In my experience, prepping students in reading and phonics is the most enjoyable for me because of the range of techniques that can be used to teach them. As an educator, as much as I stress the importance of fun and playful learning, I am a strong proponent of structured learning as well. Molding young children's minds means providing a strong path but at the same time letting them tread that path in the matter that is most suitable to them.
