Testing is important and all students endure it, but it is not the most important part of the students education. Students develop goals and strategies based on their personal strengths and challenges. We work together to build on what they are good at and improve on the other subjects to an acceptable range to build grade and testing success.
Building good study habits and homework patterns early in the school year will help prevent burn-out, hopelessness, and drop-out-tendencies at every grade level. Don't get behind this year, get on top of the learning curve and earn better grades. As little as twice a week tutoring can help any student earn one or two letter grades higher this year, and pass those important exams.
LEARN to be a life-long-learner. DEVELOP your student's full potential!
I have 30 years K-12 teaching experience from small home schools to public schools and special education classrooms. I can help students excel
. Students do not want the same experience from tutoring they get from school, so most sessions stress differentiated learning activities, games, and fun educational challenges! We work on learning about our "learning styles"; visual, auditory, tactile, kinesthetic, social, interpersonal, intra-personal, and more. The student is mentored to develop study skills
which work well for them and coached to develop regular maintenance skills for homework and exam prep. I specialize in the LANGUAGE
, and public speaking
, also technology, history
, and career development
I also have unique and fun ways to teach LANGUAGE ARTS
and to prepare for TESTS; i.e., deal with testing anxieties that keep students from doing their best and coach them to prepare well for the event. I help students to study for and complete GED
diplomas, also to get ready for SAT
, and other higher education testing.
I welcome parents and students to contact me with their needs and desires for TUTORING K-12 and ESL
students in Nuevo, Hemet, San Jacinto and the Inland Empire community. Prepare to make this your best school year ever!

What motivates YOU? How do you find what motivates you, or your young student, that will help improve performance and better routine study habits?
Improving motivation and ambition toward the process called "education" can greatly improve your chances of scoring well in a class or grade level. But finding the inner things that motivate you to do well and try hard can be difficult...
As fall weather sets in, and students go back to school far and wide, the thoughts of grades and completions of grades rarely comes up now. But for students who wish to improve their scores and grades over last year, long term thinking and planning is a
must! Perhaps you should hire a tutor early on rather than wait until the student feels "in trouble" with their grades.
With summer upon us the student and the instructor naturally go a little "brain dead" in the first week or so of summer vacation. Mental overload is a stress-related event that effects everyone from time to time. The natural response is to take a "pause"
from mental and physical activity; to rest and relax. But there is a danger in letting the trend to relax go too far into...
