If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

If you are looking for a caring, dynamic, fun, and effective tutor, please contact me. My specialties include Spanish, English as a Second Language, English/Language Arts, and Social Studies. I learned Spanish as a second language over 25 years ago and many native Spanish speakers have assumed that it is my first language. I can help you with pronunciation, verb tenses and grammar, or anything else you need to know. I have over ten years of experience teaching ESL and would love to help you master the English language! I earned an elementary teaching credential from National University and an adult education credential from California State University, Long Beach specializing in ESL, Elementary and Secondary Basic Skills, and Social Sciences. I have strong experience in working with students of all ages and backgrounds, and have the patience, passion, and creativity to help you succeed! I look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best of luck in your studies.

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.

CBEST

I passed the CBEST exam and can provide that documentation if necessary. I was both an elementary school teacher and substitute and in the state of California one cannot earn become either of those without having passed the CBEST exam.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught all levels of ESL for an adult school here in Southern California. My students have come from all over the world. I have a California Full-Time Adult Education Teaching Credential in ESL.

Social Studies

I earned my BA degree in Social Science from California State University, Chico in May of 1997. I have taught Social Studies in elementary school. I have also taught GED Preparation and Citizenship Preparation in adult education. Both of those areas require an instructor with a strong background in Social Studies. I have had a passion for Social Studies since I was a child and can make it fun and exciting for my students.
