If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have an extensive education, including a Masters in Counseling Psychology, a Multiple Subject Professional Clear Teaching Credential, and a Bachelors in Psychology. My experience includes teaching K-12, tutoring adult on-line students, and counseling children and their families. I have two children of my own, who have completely different personalities and learning styles. Often it's much more beneficial to utilize an outside source to tutor your own children in order to alleviate unnecessary frustration. An objective viewpoint can also be helpful!

Not only have I tutored students of various ages, I have also worked with persons who have unique learning disabilities and challenges. Each student learns differently. Enhancing one's self-confidence for school is just as important as learning the material. We can work together to make these subjects easier for you and/or your children! My passion is making education simple and fun; it should and can be an enjoyable experience!

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 my Multiple Subject Professional Clear K-12 Teaching Credential and passed the CBEST. I just applied to have my Teaching Credential renewed.

Phonics

I have my current K-12 professional clear teaching credential and have taught phonics for years in and out of the classroom. It is vital for the students to be able to sound out the words and know what letters or letter combinations represent the words or parts of the words. It is also of utmost importance for the students to learn the exceptions to the rules in the English language.

Study Skills

I have my current K-12 Professional Clear Teaching Credential and my Masters in Counseling Psychology. I worked as an Academic Advisor for two online universities for years and am well-qualified to teach study skills. So much of learning is knowing the material, but moreover, knowing what to study and how to study and remember the concepts. Test anxiety seems to be a challenge for many students, as well. By building their confidence and helping them pick out the relevant information, we can work together to build a successful learner and test taker.
