I have taught Special Education in Secondary Schools for the past 15 years. A large percentage of my students have had ADD/ADHD. I have the patience and the ability to repeat instructions/lessons until they are absorbed by my students and then mastered. I am able to diagnose and then remediate as needed. I am very qualified to teach this group of students.


I have a Master's Degree in Special Education from CSUN. I have taught Special Education in public school for the past 15 years.

I have taught elementary school for 20 years in both public and private schools in Los Angeles. My area of strength is reading, including phonics, decoding, spelling and reading comprehension. My education and years of experience qualify me to diagnose and remediate problem areas efficiently. I am very patient and very qualified to teach all aspects of reading, including phonics. Short and long vowel sounds, as well as consonant blending, are crucial for successful decoding.

Public Speaking

I have taken several classes in public speaking in college. Additionally, as a secondary teacher, I have been required to give many speeches to my staff regarding a variety of subjects. I have been a teacher for 34 years, so I have given many speeches throughout my teaching career. I am very well qualified to assist a student with writing and delivering speeches due to my many years of experience.

Special Needs

I have taught students with special needs for 15 years. I am very patient and detail oriented. I explain skills slowly, and repeatedly as needed. I am able to diagnose and remediate areas of need. I give positive reinforcement, and I have had excellent results with my students over the years. My education (Master's Degree in Special Education) and classroom experience qualify me to deal with students with special needs efficiently and positively.

Study Skills

As a Special Education teacher for 15 years, I have taught many students how to study. For this population of students, figuring out the tips for studying is very difficult. I am very detail oriented, and very patient with all of my students. My many years of service to the Special Education population qualifies me to be an expert in teaching tips for studying. I am able to gain insight on evaluating which strategies are most beneficial for each student. I also assist each student to retain information efficiently, and to retrieve it upon request.
