Elementary teacher with special education experience and general education experience in Houston, TX.

Methodology

My teaching method is learn by doing; more time spent learning a task, the better you become. I prefer hands on and interactive activities when appropriate. My belief is that every child can learn; just in different ways and at different rates. Some will learn quickly, whereas others need more time and support. I enjoy giving the time and support.

Background

I am an accountant, starting a second career as an elementary teacher. Have 2 years experience, 1 year as a general education teacher and 1 year as a special education teacher's assistant. Successfully worked with children to over come mild to moderate learning disabilities. The key to your child's success will be discipline and hard work together.

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $75

Details

$20.00 cancellation fee per appointment. Negotiable depending on student's ability to pay.
