I have been teaching for over 15 years and have taught elementary students, high school students and junior college students. I have taught a wide range of classes including basic math, English, Web Design (HTML), Introduction to the Computer, Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Writing, Business English, Business Math and Career Development. I graduated with honors at Trident University, Los Medanos College and also at California State University Northridge. I have an MBA, an Associate Degree and a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies. I also studied Contract Law for a year and have a certificate in Contract Management. I also recently completed a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) course at Global TESOL College. I really enjoy teaching and I love to see my students progress and learn. I find that teaching is also a learning experience for me as I learn from my students as I teach them. I believe that each student has the potential to learn and the key is to unlock your learning style. After I figure out how you learn best, I can develop a learning approach that best fits your needs. Also, I try to make learning a fun experience because I want you to enjoy your subject matter. I think you will find I am a patient tutor who will do what I can to make sure you understand your lessons before we move forward. My goal will be to make sure you succeed!
