Ballet

I have experience in every technique of ballet classical (Chequetti, Vaganova, RDA, ABT, bourgenville) either by performing, teaching and upper division university classes. I am very comfortable teaching every level of classical ballet, and my students have excelled under my choreography supervision in all levels of competition. I have acquired all required certifications by intense practice and dance auditions and as required for my BA in dance and performances at UCI. I am very confident of my skills in dance.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently completing my Master in Education Leadership at National University. I work in a local High School, teaching many subjects, Spanish 1, 2, 3, and 4; French 1, 2, 3, and 4; AP Biology; Anatomy; World History; Cultural Geography; some English; and some Math. I have taught many years for a local middle school in Laguna Beach. I am compelled and ready to teach many subjects in Middle School. I have volunteered for my son's school when he was in middle school teaching English, writing, reading, math and social sciences.

Social Studies

I have taught Social Studies in a local high school for over 5 years. World History has been my strength, and my passion for many years. As I have become citizen of the United States, its history have become very intriguing to me. I am a passionate and resourceful teacher, very capable of guiding and teaching valuable studying habits. I also teach Psychology and Sociology, giving me valuable skills to address disadvantage learners.

Sociology

I have taught Sociology in a local high school for over 5 years. I am a passionate and resourceful teacher, very capable of guiding and teaching valuable studying habits. I also teach Psychology, giving me valuable skills to address disadvantage learners.

Spanish

In my class I will focus in vocabulary for conversation and key grammatical structures.
I will teach students how to organize a verb chart that will help them succeed in memorizing and applying all the verb tenses to be learned.We also watch videos related to Hispanic cultures and focus on a different Spanish-speaking country each chapter.

Homework questions from school will be explained and corrected, also includes reading short articles, poems or stories. Generally I like to have the students work on writing, the first drafts of compositions are written during class time; and the second (final) drafts, outside of class.
I will require students to work on an outline of the book they are using, a strategy on taking notes of essential grammatical concepts.

Study Skills

I teach Study Skills as well as leadership at a local high school. I am a passionate and resourceful teacher, very capable of guiding and teaching valuable studying habits. I also teach Psychology and Sociology, giving me valuable skills to address disadvantage learners.
