I recently graduated from Heald College in Concord (July, 2011) with an AAS Degree. I feel fortunate that I was able to sustain a 4.0 GPA. When I was in college, I really enjoyed Math, English, Psychology, and Microsoft Office. I particularly enjoyed writing short stories. I became employed with Mount Diablo School District as a Special Educational Assistant Substitute. I assisted teachers in educating elementary, middle, and high school students in their challenges with learning.

I recently finished a refresher course, in April, also at Heald. I would love to meet with you and your future student. In order for there to be any type of success in tutoring, it is the student who has to come to terms with his or her decision to accept and approve who the person is who will be attempting to teach him or her something. I hope I meet with your child's approval.

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 graduated from Heald College in Concord during the latter part of 2011. I studied English, Psychology, Business Math, & Pre-Algebra. I was employed by the Mount Diablo Unified School District as a Special Educational Assistant, helping elementary students with miscellaneous subjects including Math.

Elementary Math

I've studied Pre-Algebra and Business Math. I also qualified for Elementary Math.

Microsoft Access

I completed a five-week course learning Microsoft Access 2010. My final testing score (in August/2013) was 95%. In my previous job I had a log book which contained a list of all our employees and clients. Access made the list look impressive in the log book.

Microsoft Excel

In my previous job I was exporting information from Excel into Access in order to print out updated employee and customer information.
I was also exporting information from Excel into Word for the same purpose of updating information without having to type redundant information from one application to another.
