Well, I'll start with my passion. I absolutely love hands-on education and technology!
What does that mean? It means I love making all subjects fun and engaging. I love incorporating the use of technology, whether a laptop or a cell phone into the learning process. I believe it is important to teach a subject or concept in ways that will incorporate each student's unique learning style, be it visual (seeing), auditory (hearing/listening), and/or kinesthetic (touching/doing).
The 21st Century student in my experiences and opinion is a different student in that while we as parents grew up in a typographical society where writing
was the primary means of communicating, our children, the 21st Century students, are and have grown up in a society that is very much technology focused, where communication occurs via email
and text. I believe not using technology to educate and help facilitate the learning of concepts is simply a crime and puts our children at a significant disadvantage in the global society.
This will be my twelfth year working as an educator of students ages 5-18, but I have over ten years of experience as an educator of students ages 5-80. I graduated with a degree in Human Services from the University of Phoenix, and have passed the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST
) and the California Subject Examination for Teachers (CSET)- Multiple Subjects examinations. I have experience teaching/tutoring grades Kindergarten
- 12 in the following subjects: Math
(Basic - Algebra
(U.S. and World), and English
/Parts of Speech
Comprehension, Writing). I also have experience teaching Korean
international students English and Mathematics
as well as teaching exam preparation for college entrance exams, SAT Math
, and CAHSEE.
I have worked as a classroom teacher's assistant and as a Parent Literacy Assistant while employed by the Los Angeles Unified School District; a Math/Science/English Language
Arts tutor/instructor; as an instructor of students in a Gang Reduction Youth Development - GRYD Program; and as an Educational Programs Administrator, where I oversaw the instruction, curriculum, and compliance of all funded programs from school districts, cities, private foundations, and the state of California.
About Me: I am currently teaching/tutoring Math at a charter school, while tutoring privately elementary, high school, and adult students all levels of Math, English, the GED, and the ASVAB. I am a proud mother of a college sophomore majoring in Computer Science
. Prior to moving to the Inland Empire 2.5 years ago, I served as the Program Administrator for a Math, Science, and Technology out-of-school time learning center in Los Angeles, where hands-on, experiential learning was the focus.
Now, how can I assist your child in becoming a future innovator?
