- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
Hello, my name is Delia. I was born in Europe and I speak 3 languages. I have a BA Cum Laude in Literary Studies from Univesity of Texas at Dallas and completed some credit hours toward a Master's Degree in Education (with emphasis in teaching writing to college students) at Texas A&M University.
Teaching is in my blood. My father was a respected university professor. Since I was a wee girl, my ambitions in life were lofty. I wanted to be either a physician (pediatrician or cardiologist) or a teacher. It seems that teaching won because of my father's infuence and also because I had great teachers whom I admired and wanted to emulate. I will never forget my first ESL teacher who made an indelible impression on me as a young teenager freshly landed on American soil.
I worked as a writing tutor in the Learning Assistance Center at a community College in Texas. I taught college level writing courses including developmental and ESOL Writing/Grammar as well as Accuplacer Test PREP.
I was a writing tutor/proofreader/editor for all sorts of essays from English classes to Life Sciences and Philosophy and Psychology and Drama. Assessed and edited many written pieces such as college entrance essays, acceptance letters, scholarship request essays, dissertations, recommendations, proposals, book reviews, etc.
I received the Jean Sharon Griffith Student Development Leadership Award.
I love people and am passionate about the English language and teaching it to everyone who wants to learn it and become proficient in reading, writing and speech. Let's connect and get started!
