I am an elementary educator who has over 25 years experience in teaching young children. I have taught kindergarten through 3rd grade in a regular classroom. I have taught all areas of the curriculum and am familiar with CA state standard requirements. I am an expert at behavior management and pride myself on patience and perseverance. All children struggle from time to time and it is satisfying to guide them through their learning processes. Reading and language arts, science, and social studies can often be frustrating for some students, but I am confident that when given the right tools, students will be successful. Often times, students and families need help acquiring the skills to master certain concepts and I am an experienced teacher who is able to help you as a family reach your goals. Academic success often depends on study skills, and I can help your child acquire and demonstrate great study skills. I have been successful in a classroom of up to 30 students, small group situations, and also working with students independently.

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 (K-6th)

I have a valid CA teaching credential and have taught for more than 22 years. I was also a classroom aide for 7 years prior to gaining my CA teaching credential.

Phonics

I have taught elementary reading for more than 20 years. Reading readiness always includes phonics, and phonemic awareness from kindergarten through third grade. I have daily experience in teaching phonics. California state standards requires that reading curriculum includes phonics in their daily lessons.

Study Skills

Study skills are absolutely essential in all areas of the curriculum. Students with good study skills are always successful at some level. Without study skills, students will struggle. Every teacher spends at least the first two weeks of each school reminding students of these skills and practicing them faithfully. I am an expert in organization and always enjoy guiding students through the importance of good habits.
