My mother was my first teacher. She made learning fun - from spelling, vocabulary, and reading to math and science. She was loving and fair. She never let me slide and say, "I don't know." If nothing else, I had to make an educated guess. She instilled a love for learning in me that has never gone away.

I have a degree in engineering and a specialization in robotics. I worked for Hewlett-Packard for 12 years before returning to school at Santa Clara University to become a teacher. I have a teaching credential with a mathematics supplement, and have been teaching for 16 years.

My best subjects are math and language arts. I have high expectations for my students, yet provide guidance where needed. I try to provide students with examples that are related to their interests - such as sports. Additionally, I provide students with challenging, yet reachable homework problems to enhance and test what is provided in the tutoring lesson. I also have a 24-hour cancellation policy for those times when something more important comes up.

My goal is to assist you in your knowledge and understanding of your subject, and to assist you in increasing your grade.

I would love to have you as my student! Contact me soon!

Cooking involves a lot of measuring and being able to combine fractions. That is where my superb mathematics ability comes into play. I can add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions like no one else.

I also have been cooking since I was ten years old. Now I cook for my family and the Deacons and Elders of my church. They receive a full meal - salad, entree, vegetables, starch, fruit, and dessert.

It takes timing to have all of that ready at just the right time. For the most part, I have mastered that - and I love to cook!

La Verne Is Awesome! La Verne is very nice and upbeat. She makes a welcoming supportive space for a subject I hate - math. I feel very comfortable with her, and she makes me feel like there are no stupid questions. She is very patient and doesn't let me get away with stupid little mistakes that get me into trouble with prealgebra. I just started my gen ed classes for my major, and I have a feeling I will use her agai ...
