To Potential Clients:

I have been teaching for fifteen years and have had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of students. In addition to English I have taught performing arts to the aspiring professional as well as the student in need of enhancing communication, critical thinking
skills and/or self-confidence.

My background also includes extensive experience teaching Life Skills to the middle and high school student, as organization and approach may be a cause for declining grades. I am an excellent academic coach.

I hold a BA and MA degree, 45 post-MA graduate units in Education, as well as a Professional Clear Teaching Credential in English with CLAD emphasis. My methods are eclectic as learning is not a “one size fits all” process. I tailor instruction to fit the needs of each student.

Beyond my experience in the classroom I have held supplemental positions working with students on personal statements for college, SAT writing prompts and CAHSEE preparation.

Being a full time teacher I am aware of the academic challenges students face and can support them in achieving their educational goals.

I passed the CBEST to become a teacher.
I have a BA, MA and 45 post-MA graduate units in Education en route to a Single Subject teaching credential in English with CLAD emphasis. I have been a secondary English teacher for the last 17 years. CBEST writing is basic and my background surely qualifies me to tutor a candidate in how to write an essay for that exam.


I have taught ESL and English to a diverse group of students at the secondary and adult school levels. In addition to a Professional Clear Single Subject Credential in English with CLAD emphasis, I hold an MA in Communication Arts.
