My name is Jean O. I have a Master's Degree in Education and have had my State of California teaching credential since 1995. I previously taught Kindergarten and First Grade for 11 years in the South Bay and have recently worked as a Reading Intervention Teacher in Torrance. I am now a stay-at-home mom of a 2nd grader and 5th grader. I have been tutoring students between grades Pre-K and 6th grade for over 10 years now. I can work with students in all core subject areas, provide extra review, reinforce concepts, provide enrichment work, homework help, or cater to any area you wish to have addressed.

I usually work with students from 60-90 minutes, but can adjust to your time and needs. I would be more than happy to talk to you about how I can help you and your child. My goal is to help children foster good study habits, remind them that learning can still be fun even when reviewing and re-teaching concepts, and help parents alleviate at-home stresses. As a parent, I understand how difficult it can be to work with your own child at times. As a teacher and tutor, I can work with you to make school and learning a positive experience for your child.

Please let me know how I can help you!

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 a Multiple Subject CA Teaching Credential from Cal Lutheran University. I taught 1st grade for 4 years in the El Segundo Unified School District and taught Kindergarten in the Wiseburn School District. I have also taught as a reading intervention teacher for 4th grade students. I have been tutoring privately for more than 10 years. I use whole language strategies in addition to phonics to reinforce reading fluency and comprehension. I cater to students' needs in math by teaching and reviewing basic skills and problem solving strategies.

Reading

I am currently a reading intervention teacher for 4th and 5th grade students reading below grade level. I have previously taught Kindergarten and First Grade. I privately tutor all elementary grade levels.
