Let me put my extensive experience in education at your service and help you or your child achieve academic success. As a graduate of the University of Michigan, Fulbright scholar, and credentialed math teacher, I have worked for over a decade in education as a tutor, teacher, and academic coach. While teaching math at a charter school in East Oakland, my students scored in the top tenth percentile of all California students on the state math test. I am known for inspiring students to achieve beyond all expectations.

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.

Algebra 1

I am a credentialed and experienced math teacher. I have also tutored math and reading for Sylvan Learning and trained other teachers as a math coach. As a tutor, I closely tailor my instruction to the specific needs of the student and work to increase the student's motivation to learn.

English

I graduated with a B.A. in English from the University of Michigan. I have taught English in Germany through the Fulbright program and in Japan through the JET program. I have also taught English skills to students of various ages while tutoring at Sylvan Learning.

ESL/ESOL

After graduating with a B.A. in English from the University of Michigan, I taught English as a Second Language in Germany and Japan. Afterwards, I became a math teacher and assisted many of my immigrant students to acquire academic English skills. Currently, I volunteer with Catholic Charities to help them with their ESL programs for refugees.

Prealgebra

During the years I taught Pre-algebra at an Oakland charter school, my students scored in the top tenth percentile of all California students on the state tests. As a math teacher, I believe it is vital to help pre-Algebra students fortify their arithmetic and number-sense skills so that they are not hindered by making simple errors. While teaching, I have acquired a wide array of tools and strategies to help all students achieve subject mastery.
