I have had 35 years' experience teaching all ages and many varied subject areas. I have taught ESL (English as a Second Language) for adults especially to Spanish speaking students. I also taught Korean and Farsi speakers, etc. I concurrently worked in public school teaching social studies, psychology, and basic subjects to kids. I was also a studio teacher which I still am, teaching all basic subjects to minors on film sets.
I have three current Ca. Clear Teaching Credentials covering K-12 and adult education. I have the ability to understand where the students' level in a subject is and what basic learning styles would be beneficial. I like to make learning easy and enjoyable by targeting my tutoring to the student's level of understanding.
My areas of specialization are English for scientists, medical personnel, film/TV production workers, actors, and also people without literacy in their native language. Also: Basic Math (fractions, decimals, fast arithmetic) and study skills. I have taught social studies, psychology, basic science. I'm skilled at identifying holes in students' knowledge and remediation.
