I have over 30 years experience in education. I am a certified teacher, currently teaching college and university level English courses. I tutor part-time and my students range in age from 6-60 years.

I have taught English abroad, and I also have experience with ESL students. I can teach social studies and work with college students studying sociology and psychology as well. Other subjects I have taught are reading, writing, grammar, composing college and university level essays, ESL, and math up to algebra I.

My rate is the most reasonable, I live and work in Irvine. At the low rate it is not possible to travel long distances. Once you have your payment information taken care of with WyzAnt, I will be more than happy to discuss your special requirements and expectations.

Thank you for your kind consideration of this communication.

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.

Elementary Math

I am qualified to teach Elementary Math having completed my MCLAD and CBEST.

Social Studies

I have experience teaching Social Studies from Grades 3-8, in a class setting in elementary and middle-school. Prior to completing my Masters Degree in Education, I was a multi-subject teacher both in the Irvine Unified School District as well as a full-time teacher in 3 private schools. In addition I took two years of American History and a year of World History in university as part of my general education credits. I will not have any difficulty in teaching elementary or middle-school or even high school history or social studies for the lower grades.

Sociology

I minored in sociology prior to my CBEST certification. I have tutored this subject and helped college students research and write essays for their Sociology 1 and Sociology II classes. I have a clear understanding of the major concepts and current studies in Sociology. I feel I am aptly qualified to explain these concepts and help sociology students compose essays, and/or study for class, tests, and examinations.

Study Skills

I have taken 3 applied psychology courses related to study skills as electives during college; they included areas such as time management, critical reading, how to take notes in class, how to approach an assigned chapter for reading, how to paraphrase, write a summary, note key definitions, the SQ3R method of studying... to name just a few. I did well in these courses earning A's, and I not only employ this in my own learning, but I use these techniques with students whom I have tutored for more than 10 years on my own.
