I am a graduate of The University of Memphis. I have 15 years experience teaching in California public schools. I have taught grades two through seven. I have experience providing one-on-one, in home tutoring and home teaching.

Upon initially meeting with a student; I briefly assess the student's areas of strength and weakness in a particular subject area. I am then able to provide assistance tailored to the student's academic needs.

Based upon the type of assistance requested; I can assist with improving the student's basic understanding of a subject or assist with a particular assignment or project. My objective is that over time, I can strengthen the student's skills so the student can complete quality work products with less and less assistance from me.

I am available to work flexible hours during the afternoon and evenings. I am also available for Saturday tutoring. I am available to tutor with short advance notice.

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 taught grades two through six. I am renewing my clear Multiple-subject for grades K-12. I have done in- home tutoring for all subjects for grades two thru seven.

My goal as a tutor is to build the student's skills and confidence in targeted subject areas. If background, review materials are needed, I am able to provide them so the student gains a solid foundation of knowledge in the subject area tutored.

Social Studies

I have four years of experience teaching social studies as a fully credentialed, full time teacher. I have taught social studies for grades five, six and seven. Currently, my assignments as a high school substitute teacher include subbing in U.S. and World History classes.

Study Skills

As a former elementary teacher, I have helped students review and practice released practice questions for the California end of year STAR test. In my current position as a high school substitute teacher; I have assisted students in study sessions preparing for the CAHSEE exit exam for California high school students. Also, I have assisted students preparing to take the GED exam.
