I have been a credentialed teacher for over 30 years. I have earned two Masters degrees and a Doctorate in Literacy Studies, which means that I am a specialist in reading skills, comprehension, grammar, writing essays, editing papers and theses. I have taught many students with ADD, LD, and other learning challenges. Some of the students I have worked with were failing school when they came to me and by much hard work they passed their classes and even achieved "B" averages. I am a credentialed Learning Specialist, so I teach using different modalities. I have taught the SAT for over 18 years with great success.
I have been the director of three learning centers, volunteered in juvenile hall, worked with many at-risk students, and I am a spiritual person. I expect the best from my students and I support their academic efforts in any way that I can. I want my students to have the skills and self-esteem to be successful in school and later in life. I know that reading is the foundation for any progress in school and any missing skills that a student needs are provided by me before they go on to the next level.
I am very passionate about teaching, as I have always loved this profession even when I taught the most difficult students whether in regular ed.,special ed., public, private schools or college. I am dedicated, professional, warm, reliable, and caring and I have high standards. I have dedicated and devoted my life to my students as they are our future.
