EducationI am currently working on my PhD in Rhetoric and Composition with a focus on literacy and pedagogical practices in the writing classroom. I also hold a Technical & Professional Writing Certification. I have a Master of Arts degree in English and American Literature. I also have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and American Literature. I have been certified for distance learning on three platforms - Blackboard, Canvas, and Moodle.
I have taken classes in Women's Studies, Religious Studies, Language, Psychology, Statistics, Sociology, Education, and much much more! I am a well-rounded individual with ambition and drive that is second to none!
My goal: To finish with my PhD in under 3 years.
I have tutored for the past 7 years in a variety of subjects. I work with ages 2 through adult on everything from learning to read, test taking, essay writing, resume writing, scholarship applications, and other business and professional documents.
ExperienceI have taught that the university and college level for more than 7 years. I tutored in the University Writing Center both face to face as well as online with a student body writing for all disciplines. At the writing center I had experience with all levels of writing as well. The students I served included several different cultures with different language and writing needs. I tutored through undergraduate papers, master's theses, as well as Doctoral dissertations.
I want to be a tutor so that students will gain the help that was not readily available for me when I was going through school. I am a personable individual who knows three languages, and understands how difficult it can be to read and write in a language that is not native to the user. As I mentioned, I am actively pursuing my Doctoral degree at UTEP. I am certified as a Technical Writing and Professional Writing expert. I also have submitted grants and worked through editing of curricula in the community. I am well versed with scholarship applications, grant applications, conference proposals, article submissions, etc.
I also can tutor over long distances via the internet using Skype and other methods of sharing information. I actively pursue new knowledge so my methods are not outdated.
I am able to tutor at all hours of the day and night. I only need to know what your needs are.
I teach at El Paso Community College, Park University, and at UTEP and have offices at all three locations if you are already a student there. If not, I will come to you.
I have worked closely with Latinitas' co-founder for curriculum development and lesson planning.
I can send on a curriculum vitae if you would like.
Also, I have several students whom I tutor and have tutored for several years. It is up to the clients how long I will work with them. Some clients need me only once for an hour. That is all right too!
HobbiesI'm an easy going person. I am proficient in MLA and APA citation styles. I have always excelled on the academic level. I commit many hours to studying and helping others study. I also find that I have the patience to really make sure that my students understand what it is that I am teaching them. I go above and beyond the call of duty in all cases. My students' success is my success.
I have worked with several children as well. The children I work with sometimes need more attention than they can get at school due to deficiencies in acquiring the knowledge needed for success.
One of my students started with me when he was 7 years old. The school was threatening to hold him back due to behavioral issues and literacy problems. When we started working together, we built an everlasting friendship. He is now on the track to success, is moving onto middle school this year, and did not have to repeat any grades.
Another student was having trouble reading and comprehending the information given for her. She has dyslexia so reading has always been hard for her. When we began working together, she had dropped out of high school. After taking the GED test several times herself, she came to me for tutoring for the GED. I went above and beyond, found her a school that she could complete high school through, since having a diploma is what she would have rather had, and now she is graduating college.
Another student that comes to mind wants to be a chef. She needed help applying to an internship program. I did so, and she is actively working within it.
One student came to me with the desire to go into dental hygiene. She asked for help studying for the exam. We worked on reading and writing. She received the top grade for the exam after working with me for only one week and was accepted into the program!
As you can see, there are many success stories that I can share. Will you be my next one?
