Hello! I am a middle school intensive reading teacher in Miami-Dade County and am looking to tutor during this upcoming summer. Though my professional focus is Reading, I am certified to teach grades 5-9, all subjects. I graduated from New York University at the top of my class with a degree in Spanish Literature and Culture. Therefore, I am willing and able to tutor a wide range of students in a wide range of subjects. I am extremely dedicated, hard-working, dependable, and enthusiastic about education, and I would love to use these qualities to help people who need the extra push this summer. My tentative availability for the summer is below. Resume is also pasted below. Thank you!
