I worked for a tutoring site for a year as head tutor, working with students from kindergarten to high school, and as private tutor. I have a bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis on English literature. My major and work field has trained me to engage students to pursue or discover their best study methods in order to succeed (since we all learn and take in information in a different way). I am committed to teaching and education, and strongly believe that everyone can learn to the best of their abilities.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with Speicial Education Elementry school students that have been diagnosed with different learning and attention defetiencies, as ADHD/DHD as a one-on-one and paraprofessional (both in a special day class and general Ed). I am aware that these students work better in structure settings, with specific goals, reward system, and that they all have different skills. I currently work with 3 students who have been diagnosed with ADHD and are taking medication.

Autism

I have worked with Special Education Elementary school students that have been diagnosed with mild Autism as a one-on-one and paraprofessional (both in a special day class and push in support in a general Ed setting). I am aware that these students work better in structure settings, that is important to follow routines and schedules with specific goals, work better if reward with something they like to do, and that they all have different learning skills.

CBEST

I will begin my Masters program in Special Education soon. I am have passed all three sections of the CBEST test, and have acquired great study methods and skills to pass the test.

Elementary (K-6th)

I will begin working on my Master in special education soon. I currently hold a BA in Liberal Studies and have worked for the elementary school setting for the past 8 years. I have worked in the general and Special Ed setting in all of the subjects. I have passed the CBES and CSET state exams that are required for credential teachers to teach in CA. I love to teach kids, and am always looking for innovated ways to get them engage in education.

English

BA in Liberal Studies, with Emphasis in English literature.

Phonics

I will begin working on my Master in special education soon. I currently hold a BA in Liberal Studies and have worked for the elementary school setting for the past 8 years. I currently run a writing group in the Special Resource Program where we review phonetic decoding (long and short vowels, high frequency words, sight, blended sounds, etc.)as well as basic comprehension.

Special Needs

I have worked with Special Education Elementary school students that have been diagnosed with different learning and disabilities (SLD, mild Autism, mild ADHD, Dyslexia, etc.) as a one-on-one and paraprofessional ( special day class,RSP and general Ed setting). I am aware that students with special needs work better in structure settings, with specific goals, reward system, and that they all have different skills. I am currently working at a public school running small RSP groups of students with learning disabilities.

Study Skills

I currently hold a BA in Liberal Studies with emphasis in English Literature. I have tutored students of k-12 grade in individual classes, and as a head tutor for an afterschool program I learned that everyone learns and takes in information in different ways. I believe that it is important for every student to discover his/her learning methods/skills and develop effective study habits in order to succeed and overcome academic difficulties.
