I am calm and clear. My analytic capabilities allow me to break up a learning task into manageable parts. I have an EdD, and taught middle school and high school science for seven years, ESL for one, reading for thirteen, and high school and GED prep to adults for ten. I am familiar with the HOBET test to establish fitness for medical professions training. In my tutoring, I demonstrate the thinking skills and techniques to be learned and then lead the student in practicing them. This is in accord with the most recent research on effective teaching. I am aware that the development and effective use of vocabulary in all areas of study is essential for mastery. A language framework is needed to comprehend, express and explore concepts.
I very much enjoy the challenge of effectively communicating knowledge. I am creative in my methods. I love my students. I transform lives.
I have taught the content of the Algebra 1 course as a part of GED test preparation. I am familiar with the Los Angeles Unified School District's Algebra 1 course outline and CA state content standards. I enjoy teaching Algebra very much.
I taught Biology for 7 years in high school. I have just successfully coached a HS senior in AP Biology. She got a score of 5 on the AP Bio exam and the highest final exam score in the school. I am very enthusiastic about Biology.
I taught 3rd grade in a private school for 3 years. I am familiar with Los Angeles Unified School Districts course outlines for subjects at elementary grade levels. I've taught reading and basic math for many years.
I very much enjoy the challenge of teaching Elementary Math. I explain the concepts clearly using different approaches to assist the student in understanding. I have a calming presence which helps to assuage "math anxiety".
I have taught science for 7 years. I am able to explain the principles of the subject very clearly so they seem easy. I have a calming presence which helps my students overcome any anxiety.
I have taught high school English subjects to young adults as well as upper level ESL classes. The GED test preparation classes I give also involve grammar and writing conventions, as well as essay structure and writing. I enjoy teaching English.
I taught ESL and reading to students of ESL in adult school for 14 years. Most of students in my high school teaching and GED preparation have had English as a second language. ESL has been a major part of my teaching.
I have taught GED preparation for 10 years as well as proctoring and grading the official GED practice tests. I am very skilled at teaching the skills and knowledge required to succeed in passing the GED.
I have taught pre-algebra extensively as part of the GED preparation program. I am creative in my explanations, and am able to clarify difficult concepts and make them simple. I very much enjoy teaching math to young people.
I have worked with many students on writing. I not only proofread for grammar mistakes, but also help students clarify the structure of their writing. I have great powers of analysis which enable me to dissect and elucidate the logic of a thesis.
I taught reading to adults for 13 years. Most of my students had English as a second language so phonics was important as was vocabulary development. I also worked with students so they could visualize the meaning of what they read to have a full understanding.
I have directed students in their successful studying for the GED. My most recent student who is studying in a very fast paced technical program had no idea how to study effectively. After one tutorial she feels empowered and is maintaining a 91 average.
