I am an experienced California credentialed teacher with many years of experience in all grades from Kindergarten through 6th grade.


I particularly enjoy teaching children to read. I personalize and design curriculum specific to each student's needs in order to help the student feel successful and to target the student's weaknesses.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to teach all elementary school core subjects because I have a valid California elementary teaching credential.

I have also recently retired from working for a charter school where I supervised kindergarten through 8th grade homeschooled students in all subjects. I also have teaching experience in a traditional school setting.

Phonics

I've taught over 100+ children to read over a lengthy teaching/parent volunteer career. My strength in teaching phonics and reading is my ability to analyze the areas in which a student is struggling and then to provide specific, directed instruction in these areas of difficulty.

Reading

I have successfully taught many children to read using phonics and sight words which are not phonetic. I personalize and individualize directed instruction for each student while encouraging and engaging the student in activities designed to help the student succeed and to gain confidence.
