I want to introduce myself as a graduate in the Arts from Cal State Long Beach and as a
credential graduate from San Francisco State University in Art Education. I conducted my student teaching at Albany High School, while my wife attended University of California, Berkeley. While studying for my Art Credential, I also studied Journalism as a minor. I have passed the CSET and obtained a Supplementary Credential in English and I taught high school English at Oakland Emiliano Zapata Street Academy last year. Prior to last year's position, I worked at two schools as a short-term, English teacher for a district in the Palm Springs area (Desert Sands Unified).
I also taught CAHSEE (CA High School Exit Exam) at Palm Desert High School (Palm Desert, CA). I have tutored high school students in afternoon English enrichment classes at Oakland Street Academy. When tutoring, I assess the student's strengths and needs and set up a personalized plan to tackle the issues that we need to address. Together with parents, we formulate structured tutoring sessions, homework, reviews and assessments in order to measure our progress.
I thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing from you and I am eager to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
