Tutors Serving West Austin:
Fred L: After obtaining my Master of Science degree, I worked in the semiconductor engineering field for several years and then moved to the education field because of my passion for making a difference in the lives of the students in my community through education. Over the years, I have worked with several hundred students in various capacities and I still enjoy helping each individual student understand a concept and watch him/her succeed in school. As a teacher/tutor, I have worked with students in various classroom settings, small groups and 1 on 1. I enjoy the 1 on 1 setting the most because I am able to teach each student more effectively based on his/her strengths, weaknesses, interests and learning style.
Here are the subjects I teach: MS Math, HS Algebra, HS Geometry, HS Physics, STAAR/SAT/ACT Math Prep
Rate: $50/hour, Legend: MS = Middle School, HS = High School, STAAR = State of TX Assessment of AR
Karen M: My work in the field of education spans many years and my students have ranged in age from preschoolers to adults. I truly believe that providing students with what they need to succeed is my calling and passion in life. Recently, I returned to school to continue my own education and obtained a Master’s degree in Education with Literacy Specialization so that I may better serve my students.
Currently, I am working with three terrific Elementary school students in order to improve their reading and literacy development. In addition, I volunteer as an adult ESL instructor in South Austin. I enjoy 1 on 1 tutoring as it allows me to build rapport with each student and learn about their individual strengths, interests and learning style. I customize my instruction based on this profile to help each student acquire skills, confidence, and achievement in their area of need or enrichment. In addition, I enjoy using a variety of engaging, hands on learning materials that assist students’ in making their own learning discoveries. Although I specialize in reading, writing and literacy development, I am also qualified to teach Science and Math at the elementary level and Social Studies at the elementary and middle school levels. In addition, since I have a high level of proficiency in Spanish, I am able to provide instruction to preschoolers through High School students in Spanish as well.
Here are the subjects/tests I teach: ES, MS & HS ELA and Spanish, ES Math & Science, STAAR
Rate: $45/hour, Legend: ES = Elementary School, ELA = English Language Arts
