I have been tutoring students since 2013 and teaching since 2010. I currently teach high school English (regular and honors) and I am an English college instructor. I enjoy working with students from all levels. I have experience working with students who have learning disabilities and students who are not fluent in English. My goals are to not just help the student grasp a concept, but to master it, and excel. I am very dedicated to helping others. I am patient and will make sure that you feel confident after our session and more knowledgeable. In the past I have helped students who were not on graduation status pass their Nevada State Proficiency Exams. I have also helped students pass these exams the first try! My students have won national and local writing contest. I have a M.Ed and MFA in creative writing. I am excited to help take you to the next level!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that teaching is an art. No two people can teach alike. It is something that one can only do if he or she has a passion for the subject and a passion to help others grow.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I initially would like to understand exactly which areas the student is most concerned about and what goals the student has to grow in the area(s).

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

There are certain strategies that students can learn to become independent. I am aware of many that can help a student learn without dependence.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

It is important to praise students for their hard work and show them their progress along the way. These are things I like to do to help students push forward.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

No one method is meant to be used for learning. It is important to understand the student's learning styles and strengths. I like to use these attributes and develop a plan from there.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

The best way to get better with reading comprehension is using several strategies that can improve one's comprehension. Ideally, I like to create a formula just for the student that will enhance his or her comprehension.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

Building good rapport, accommodation, listening to the student, being a motivator, and showing a big smile.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

Find topics related to the subject the student may be interested in.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

Assessments and progress are key!

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

Help the student to understand they are not the only person who has ever struggled in this area and that they have more than enough potential to master the subject.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

After listening and working with the student, I can better understand what the student needs.
