I currently have some availability open for the summer. If you are interested in discussing a unique summer curriculum catered to your child. Please e-mail me and I will be happy to talk to you.

I am passionate about helping students dramatically improve their academic performance. Students deserve a curriculum that focuses on their individual needs, passions, and are applicable to real life. Through thoughtful integration all students’ needs can be met. Goal setting allows students to be an active advocate in their learning. Allowing students to be active in their educational goals and achievements will encourage students to become life long lovers of learning.

I am a credentialed teacher who has worked in a private and private school settings for the past eight years. My teaching credentials are in multiple subject elementary school and biological sciences. I have attended a variety of trainings throughout my professional career. In writing, I have trained and applied the Step-Up to Writing program and Lucy Caulkins in my classroom. For mathematics, I have training in Everyday Math as well as CPM. While transitioning to the Common Core curriculum, I have increase my instruction in math to concrete explanations and activities as opposed to memorization of basic algorithms. My true passion lies in science where I enjoy reinforcing scientific concepts through written communication.

ADD/ADHD

I have a Certified California Credential. Part of the credentialing process emphasizes that as a teacher you know how to ensure ALL students are successful. Not a year has gone by in my 8 years of teaching where I have not had a ADHD/ADD student in my classroom. I have learned a variety of strategies to help these students be successful.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently posses a multiple subject and single subject preliminary credential issued by the state of California. With this credential I am allowed to teach any self contained K-6th grade class. In addition to this credential I have 4 years of teaching in elementary schools.

ISEE

I am a California credentialed teacher who is familiar with the standards for the ISEE in verbal and quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension, mathematic achievement, and writing. While preparing my ISEE students for the test I ensure we thoroughly review each area listed above to give my students confidence in how they will perform on the exam.

Study Skills

As a California credentialed teacher and a classroom teacher, it is imperative I teach my students study skills to be successful in my classroom and for the future. Some study skills I emphasize are time management, organization, a variety of note taking skills, and test taking strategies. Since everyone is unique, not all strategies work for one person. I find it is important to work individually with students to find the right strategies that work best for them.
