Experienced, motivating instructor offering tutoring services for college, graduate level, high school, middle school and elementary-Writing, Spanish, Reading/Language, Social Studies and Test Prep

Methodology

I employ ESL techniques, connecting vocabulary, illustrating, demonstrating, using real life examples. I use authentic, engaging literature. I am an interactive teacher, very entertaining with warmth and a sense of humor. I’ve supervised teachers and designed curricula on campuses, staying abreast of how to organize and deliver high interest/high impact lessons that make learning come alive. I capture student interest, use a nice mix of activities that culminate with the end goal in mind. I help writers scaffold from the basic to the sophisticated/publishable.

Background

I hold a Ph.D. In two educational leadership programs from UT Austin. I have recently taught and served as an administrator at all levels including premier high schools. I am bilingual Spanish and certified to teach the following: Spanish, English, Government, Bilingual Education, ESL, All elementary subjects. I am also certified as a principal and superintendent. I am an educational researcher and have presented research reports at Harvard University, at the AERA in Montreal and to the Governor of Texas.
I’ve contributed to research at the UT Educational Productivity Council and assisted doctoral students in their research and writing.
