I am a teacher with twelve years of classroom experience in grades K-8. I have taught every grade from kindergarten through 5th grade, plus middle school English/Language Arts. I am versed in teaching phonics and reading strategies. In math, I can teach everything from basic skills through Pre Algebra. I have tutored students in reading and math in both after school programs and private homes. I also help my children with their homework. My daughter, who has ADHD, is getting ready to graduate from high school with honors.
I have two California Clear Teaching Credentials, one in Multiple Subjects and one in English. I am also in the process of applying for a Child Development Site Supervisor Permit, which will authorize me to teach preschool.
As many credentials as I have, I would not be a good teacher, or tutor, if I did not truly care for my students. I am a firm believer in the philosophy that all children can learn. Some children need a little more help and support, but they still can be successful in school. As a teacher and a tutor, it is my job to nurture each child to bring out the scholar them.
As your child's tutor, I will find out what skills she needs help with so we can develop a plan to help him be successful. Then I will create a personalized curriculum and work with you and your child to make sure that your child masters those skills so he can enjoy learning and school. That is the satisfaction I get from my work and why I am a teacher and tutor.
