I have a current California teaching credential in the following areas: English as a Second Language, basic elementary and secondary skills, and health occupations. I would most happy to tutor you (adults) or your children in ESL, reading, reading comprehension, basic math, vocabulary, grammar, spelling, phonics and even, medical terminology. I have had several years of experience in each field both in the classroom and in a private setting. I am very patient and thorough in my teaching methods. Setting up an educational plan with each of my students and parents is essential in seeing success.

I also have assisted over 125 people fill out their US citizenship application and pass the US citizenship interview. It has been so rewarding to hear each of them say: "I passed!"

I look forward to meeting you.

Phonics

In college, I took a course in phonemics. We learned how to analyze word sounds linguistically.
