I am a 20-year veteran teacher with the Los Angeles Unified School District. I am currently a 6th grade teacher. I have taught every grade from Kindergarten to 6th grade. I have been a mentor teacher, an instructional coach on literacy, a Gifted and Talented Coordinator, and an assistant principal.
I offer you the highest quality of tutoring and professionalism for your child. I am certificated by the State of California and designated "highly qualified" by the NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND (NCLB) federal guidelines.
I have a multiple subject credential from the State of California to teach all subjects from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. In addition, I have a Certificate of Language Acquisition and Development (CLAD) that allows me to teach English Language Learners. I am also certified to teach gifted and talented students as well. All credentials and certificates can be made available upon request.
I have studied and been trained as an instructional coach to teach phonics as part of the Reading First Initiative that focused on reading development in grades K-3. For students in these grades the goal was learning to read, so that by 4th grade they are reading to learn. I teach phonics instruction because it helps students to learn the relationships between the letters of the written language and the sounds of the spoken language. It leads to an understanding of the alphabetic principle-the systematic, and predictable relationships between written letters and spoken sounds. My plan for phonics instruction includes a careful and selected set of letter-sound relationships that are organized into a logical sequence. The delivery of the instruction is done in a systematic and explicit approach for maximum effectiveness. Phonemic awareness- the ability to hear, identify, and manipulate individual sounds-and phonological activities such as blending, onsets and rimes, syllabication, and rhyming are effective strategies that I use to help student better understand the letter/sound relationships that make up words they hear. In addition, I provide students ample opportunities to apply what they are learning about letters and sounds through the reading of words, sentences, and stories.
