I have been a Special Education teacher for 13 years. Special Education classes tend to have very few students with a variety of academic abilities. They can range from pre-K all the way to Undergraduate college. Thus I have had years of experience in teaching children on a one-to-one basis. I have also worked as a professional SAG/AFTRA/AEA actor and have had a lot of theatrical experience. My academic proficiency lies in English and Math, particularly pre-Algebra.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with ADD/ADHD Children for over 13 years. I am familiar with their heightened levels of energy and disruptive behaviors.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a teacher for 13 years. I enjoy working with children and giving them individualized attention. I believe that the more individual attention a student receives, the more he/she excels in his/her studies. This is particularly important in the elementary years, when he/she is growing up and developing as a person and as a student.

English

I have met the Subject Matter Requirement in English Language and Literature.

Phonics

I have been a teacher for 13 years; I have taught phonics for most of those years, as well as reading. I know about long vowels, short vowels, the schwa, closed syllables, open syllables, diphthongs, vowel digraphs, vowel-consonant-E, R-controlled, and Consonant-le sounds.

Prealgebra

I have been teaching pre-algebra to my students for over five years; I have been a credentialed teacher since 2001, and my passion for educating young people remains undiminished. I hope you will give me a try; you'll be glad you did!

Public Speaking

As a former professional actor, I am versed in performing in public as well as improving verbal diction, confidence, and poise.

SAT Math

When I was in high school, I got 540 in math when I took the SATs. By diligent study, I was able to raise my score by 100 points. I can do the exact same thing for you!! Take me out for a spin and give me a try--you'll be oh so glad you did.

Theatre

As a former member of Actors Equity, I am familiar with the fine art of walking around on and declaiming on a stage.

TOEFL

My SAT score in English and Writing was 640; I can do the same for you!! Give me a try and see how I can improve your score as well!

Writing

I have worked as a professional writer and journalist. I have written for Video Review, Gallery, Drama-Logue, and TV-Cable Weekly. I was also a member of the Writers Guild, west. I was also a straight-A student in English in graduate school.
