True passion for learning and the desire to pass on this joy to others have lead me to spend the last 30 years as an educator. I am a versatile teacher and have taught multiple subjects to students of all ages and nationalities. My specific focus is teaching ESL, English, and Mathematics.
I specialize in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and in teaching Language Arts to native English speakers. This includes phonics, reading, spelling, vocabulary, handwriting, grammar, writing, reading comprehension, and literature, from Kindergarten through college, in addition to SAT and ACT prep.
My love for languages and people of other nationalities has specially enabled me to teach international students with great comfort and success for many years.
In addition to English, I am fluent Farsi, semi-fluent in Spanish, and have also studied French and Arabic. Someday soon I would like to learn Korean.
I can teach reading, writing and speaking Farsi, and can communicate in Spanish when necessary.
As a math tutor, my specialty is Arithmetic, pre-algebra through algebra I and II, as well as geometry, trigonometry, and ACT AND SAT prep.
Currently, I am in the process of getting a California credential in mathematics, and in renewing my credential in Teaching ESL to adults.
In addition, I am an artist specializing in portrait arts and can teach drawing and rendering to those interested.
