Hi! I'm Mrs. M. I welcome the opportunity to help your child. I became a teacher because I want to see children succeed in school and in life! I've taught elementary school for more than 15 years now. I taught kindergarten and first grade for most of that time. I am now a substitute teacher for grades K-6. I also tutored at Sylvan Learning when my children were very young.

I believe that I have the ability to help children understand concepts better. While they are learning from me, they are having fun! I will provide them with educational games and activities to enhance what they have learned. I also have an Ipad with educational apps, that I will use with the students, to practice the skills and concepts that they may have trouble understanding.

I am available during the school day between 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and/or after school hours on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3:30-5:30 and Fridays after 5 p.m. I am also available during some weekend hours as needed.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a multiple subject credential with CLAD earned from California State University at Long Beach in June 2008.


I have taught from the Open Court phonic program and know it well. I've also taught Kindergarten and first grade full-time, so I know how to teach phonics.


I am a credentialed teacher. Reading is my favorite subject to teach. I'm an avid reader with great comprehension skills and an extensive knowledge of vocabulary. I encourage students to read as much as they can and anything they can! I am certified to tutor in Reading, and did well on the exam required by WyzAnt in order to tutor this subject.

Study Skills

I feel that I have very good study skills, which I have acquired over the years as a student and teacher. I have also taken college courses on study skills. I taught study skills while I was a tutor at Sylvan Learning. I taught SAT prep classes while there.


I believe that I am a good writer because I am a great reader! Great writing takes time and patience, both of which I have. It takes creativity and building on what you know and what you have experienced. It is a process that must be taught with structure, which I know I can pass on to students. I am certified to teach writing, as I passed the writing exam that WyzAnt required us to take.

Great and Patient — I wanted a tutor for my seven year old grandson who does very well in school but I noticed he reads only when required but I want him to enjoy reading as I did as a child and still do as an grandparent. Ms. Catherine is great and patient with him as seven year olds get bored rather quickly but she manages to keep him engaged for the full hour. She is kind and very smart and truly a professional ...
