I have worked with students of all ages and levels, from preschool through graduate school. While I have expertise in teaching reading, literature, writing and creative writing, I also have experience in tutoring math subjects. I think math is fun!—and I try to make it fun for my students. As a recent student myself, I know that good study skills are essential to making schoolwork a more pleasant and efficient process.
While studying at Sonoma State University I served as a Teaching Assistant for several classes; I tutored freshmen English students for four years; I taught a semester of developmental English; and I edited a graduate student newsletter. As an editor I have assisted authors, artists, and academicians to produce more effective writing. These experiences taught me that all students and writers thrive on generous amounts of positive feedback.
Because I myself was an English learner when I was very young, I can appreciate the challenges faced by English learners today. I strive to clarify areas of difficulty for my students. One of the high school students I tutored said that he liked the way I explain things. I am committed to the success of my students!
