When it comes to my students, I know school can be boring and I make it enjoyable by incorporating activities from the arts into lessons or using them as resources for the student to remember important information. I have a lot of experience working with "trouble" or "at risk" students and have helped to significantly improve the grades of those students. My method consists of getting to know the student and using every possible resource to make the most out of the subject a student is learning. A subject has to be interesting for a student to learn and making that subject interesting is something I enjoy doing. My phone number is (915)799-6760.
