Hello -- I've been teaching and tutoring in California for many years. I have taught all grade levels in a variety of settings. Some of my experience includes: a pull-out 2nd grade reading and math program, a self contained 5th grade, 6th and 8th grade Language Arts and Social Studies, and 9th -12th grade high school English, (in both traditional public high schools and in Continuation High Schools).
In addition, I have worked for my school district, tutoring house-bound students one-on-one. In this capacity, I have worked with a range of students, from low to high ability and from 2nd graders to seniors in high school.
I hold a valid California Standard Elementary Credential,as well as a California Single Subjects Credential in English, and a CLAD certification (which allows me to teach students whose second language is English). I am also certified as a Highly Qualified Teacher in English, History, Civics and Government, Geography and Economics.
Mostly, I love my students and I love to teach. It invigorates me. It is a true joy to see my students grow as they learn.
