"She is positive, friendly,and enjoys working with children," states the principal.

"She makes things easier so that it is not too hard for us to learn," says a student.

I chose teaching as my profession, because I always loved working with children. I want them to learn as quickly as possible. While I am firm, I am compassionate at the same time.

I am a Reading Specialist, and I have been awarded a California Teaching Credential for Life.

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.

Dyslexia

I am a reading specialist and was certificated by the State of California. My most significant achievement was with a nine year old boy who went to school only briefly when he was five. He entered my 3rd grade class without knowing the alphabet. When he started to write his numbers and letters were often reversed. Later in the year, he took a district writing assesment without assistance and received one of the highest scores given.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Certificate for Life that was given to me by the State of California. I've taught public school and tutored many years. I'm most successful working with children ages 5-8.

Elementary Math

I've taught math to hundreds of children in the public schools, and the improvement among my students is impressive.

To some, math comes naturally but others need to try a variety of methods before they find one that works for them.

Your child won't hate math, once successful. In fact, you will really be surprised at the improvements that can be made.

English

English and Accent Reduction

I've taught classes in English as a Second Language, and I have also given private lessons. Pictures, cartoons, and motions make learning a little easier.

Phonics

Being a reading specialist, I find phonics extremely important for both reading and spelling. I've had courses in Linguistics as well as ESL courses, but most of all I've had experience teaching children phonics from various programs.

Reading

I'm a qualified teacher and reading specialist, and I have an MA in Education as well. I know numerous ways to teach reading. Not all methods are best for every student. I'm familiar with using a variety of methods and materials. One may learn best by using phonics, sight, whole language, the neurological impress method, or a combination of many.

Special Needs

I taught a class of Severely Emotionally Disturbed children for a year. I recently substituted in a class where a five year never drank from anything but a bottle. I took him aside, and within twenty minutes he happily drank from a cup.

Spelling

Most of my students have become amazing spellers. Every student learns in a different way. Some students find that they spell best if they sound out the word, others look at the shape of the word,and still others find it easier to learn when the missing letter is highlighted. It's important to try a variety of methods.

Study Skills

Over the years, I have learned a number of techniques that help students study. Study skills include more than just when and where the student studies, but how they can best use their time. For example, when they study for a spelling test, instead of going over and over the word, the letter missed is written in a different color making it much easier to learn.

Kathy is turning my granddaughter around! — Her knowledge in working with elementary level studies is very apparent in the way she presents the work. Kathy is exceptionally patient. She is extraordinary in her communication with the parents and goes the extra mile to find out everything she can about the child so that she can meet the specific needs of the student. I was very hesitant in starting with a tutor, but immediately Kathy was able ...
