I have been in the teaching world in some capacity since 1994. I have worked as an instructional assistant in a special education classroom. I have substitute taught in many districts in the Bay area. I have taught in my own classroom in elementary schools for 7 years(various grades). I have also worked for another tutoring company for 5 years. As you can see, I am very versatile. I am also a singer, guitarist and songwriter. My greatest joy is to see your child excited about learning and succeeding!

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 7 years of experience as an elementary teacher in various grades. I have a multiple subject teaching credential.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL for 7 years as an elementary teacher. This includes teaching several grades. I was also trained in teaching this subject two different times through the public school system.

General Music

I have been a performing musician for many years. I sing and play guitar and piano. I have also taught singing, songwriting piano and guitar privately and in recreation centers. I have a high school and college background in music, theory, sight reading and choir.

Guitar

I have played guitar for more than 30 years as a performing artist. I have also been teaching guitar for ten years or so. I would be glad to work with you to learn or improve your guitar playing skills.

Phonics

Phonics involves the ability to sound out words by using a literacy method such as Open Court. This program emphasizes, letter, sound, picture for all short vowel, consonants, long vowels and some silent ones such as boat. When I taught kindergarten we also used big books with rhymes to reenforce these letter sounds.

Reading

I am a certificated elementary teacher and have taught reading, grammar and writing to grades 2-5 , as well as tutoring these subjects up to 12th grade

Special Needs

I have worked as a one-one-ne aide to an autistic 5th grade boy and a retarded girl modifying both their academic programs. I also worked as an aide in a severely handicapped class.
