I Majored in Creative Writing in College and continue to practice it every day. It's not necessarily a subject that can be "Mastered" (in my opinion), as creativity is an infinite and uncapped flow. Anyone can write from childhood to their deathbed. It the purest form of expression and it's my first love. I use it while writing songs for performing artists in Los Angeles, but that's only one of many doors that an understanding of creative writing can open!

We find different methods and models to encourage the connection between understanding problems and developing solution-oriented mindsets. Students develop greater awareness, approach, and integration of algebra both for their classes as well as the use in practical "real time" (i.e. life application).

I teach all forms of literacy including listening, speaking, writing, and reading English. I teach grammar, phonics, word recognition and comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and effective, expressive, and creative writing skills. I have been an avid reader and writer ever since my elementary school days. At college, I received a perfect score on my departmental English exam. I have three education degrees: A double bachelor's in elementary education and music, and a master's in reading. I am presently a Mesa Laubach Literacy Council Board Member and Tutor. I love to help students become more proficient in the English language.

I am a full time online English Teacher, and a previous daycare owner for 10+years. I have tutored many of preschool and elementary students, with math, reading, phonics, writing etc for years and my students academic grades have improved tremendously; within the first few lessons. My teaching philosophy, is that learning requires more than just educating someone or acquiring new knowledge. In my opinion, I feel, that it is more so rather, are entire inner and outer circle of well being; which is why my approach to teaching is from an aural, visual and curiosity perspective. Clay Patrick Bedford, once said: “You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives” My teaching techniques are always challenging. However, very exciting, interesting, with a blast of fun and lots of activities; very suitable and appropriate for your child's grade level. I always assess, recognize ...

Hi there! First, I understand the pain of taking a standardized test, it sucks and we have to deal it somehow:) I went through the GRE preparation myself and got a pretty good score (170+163). I would give you a diagnosis mini-test at beginning, and create a customized study plan for you. Of course, I will share with you my secrets and study tips, and show you how to apply them in a real timed test condition.
I also have all the preparation materials of GRE and a software that you could take timed test, which means you do not have to purchase anything more for your study. I look forward to talking to you and helping you to reaching your ideal scores!
