Ages 5+

Teaching since:
August 1999

I have taught English at a high school level for ten years, and at the tertiary level for approximately 2 years. I have volunteered as a Language Arts teacher at the elementary level, and ESL tutor at House of Amos and Literacy Advanced of Houston. Furthermore, I have tutored on Skype, in-home based, email, and telephone to students in Pre-K through grades 8.

I have a Bachelors degree in English (Secondary Education), and a Master's degree in Education (Literacy). In addition, I am a certified Texas Language Arts grades 6-8 educator, and a Reading specialist.

I believe that all children can learn and all non-native English learners can master the English language. Teachers or tutors responsibility is to provide students with the most effective methodologies. Students learn differently and tutors/teachers need to address each student based on his or her way of learning. If teachers use the student-center approach, students progress gradually and eventually master the various subject areas.

Charlotte is an excellent tutor. She helped my nephew substantially with not only reading but his confidence with reading. He enjoyed working with her and the tasks were fun for him. In a few lessons with daily home tasks he improved. I wish she were closer to my home. I would love him to be tutored by her this school year just to keep him on task.

Charlotte is very prompt and dependable. She brings her own material and print outs. I've seen her bring library books. This is a tutor that cares.

My daughter is always excited to have her tutor around. She is learning a lot in such a short time. Ms. Charlotte is always on time and very patient with her. I am more excited about her method of tutoring and we are all very happy. Thanks Take lessons for connecting us to an awesome teacher.
