I have been a teacher with LAUSD for the past 18 years. I am currently a 4th grade teacher in the School of Advanced Studies, as well as a middle school math tutor. I also currently serve as a Math Fellow with LAUSD. There my job is to train lead teachers from individual schools to provide Math Common Core lessons.

I have experience working with and meeting the needs of students of all abilities. Further, I have the patience and knowledge in all subjects to deliver instruction in varied ways.

I look forward to the opportunity to help you, help your child, reach their highest potential.

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 have 17 years of classroom experience in which I have taught grades 1-5 multiple times. I am well aware of the required standards for each grade and subject, and how they build upon one another. I am comfortable meeting the needs of all learners as I have 5 years of experience teaching gifted students and 3 years as a resource specialist.

Elementary Math

I have a passion for math and years of successful instruction in the subject. I was rated a most effective teacher by the LA Times in the two years they provided teacher rankings. I was also recently selected as a Math Fellow with LAUSD (1 of 60). Math Fellows are a select group of teachers who will provide professional development to lead teachers throughout the district. Math Fellows will provide new instructional methods in math and explain how the new Math Common Core Standards can best be implemented.

Phonics

I have taught Open Court, which is phonics based, in grades 1 and 2 for a total of 4 years. In addition, I spent three years as a resource specialist working with students who struggled to read primarily due to holes in their phonics knowledge. I am confident I can fill in the gaps your child needs to become a successful reader.
