I am a retiree from the Los Angeles unified school district. I taught in the primary grades. I am fluent in Spanish and I am currently tutoring a high school student in Spanish I. I enjoy working in a one-on-one teaching setting. This is the best type of setting to promote quick and thorough learning in a highly structured environment. I pride myself on the fact that I feel I can zero in on the student's individual needs and provide adequate and varied teaching techniques that will hold the student's interest. A few of the students I am presently tutoring have seen their grades rise within a few weeks. I have 25 years of working with students and their parents, so I hope that I can be of service to you and/or your child. Thank-you, Helen Kulkin

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 taught in the Los Angeles Unified School District for 22 years in grades K-6.

ESL/ESOL

I hold an elementary teaching credential. I have 22 years of experience teaching elementary school children. I also hold a bi-lingual teaching credential(Spanish). A large percent of my teaching day was spent teaching Spanish reading and English as a second language to children that needed to improve their written,reading and oral language skills. I placed a special emphasis on attempting to make the language learning process interesting and entertaining. I feel that I am highly qualified to teach this subject area. In my classroom I used various techniques such as puppetry, role-playing,singing,poetry, and other methods to inspire my students. Most of my Kindergarten students entered my class unable to speak much English and left Kindergarten with a high oral proficiency level.

Phonics

I taught phonics in the Los Angeles School District for about 18 years, at the Kindergarten level. I have also taught phonics during my last 5 years of tutoring work. This is my strength.
