Dear Parent,

I am a special education teacher for students with learning disabilities, mild autism, ADD/ADHD, and speech and language impairments. I have been working with students in the special education field for 25 years now.

I love to tutor, because the one-to-one interaction gives the child a greater chance for learning and a sense of self-confidence. My specialty is in modifying lessons in all core subject areas to meet the individual needs of each child. I am confident in tutoring all subjects from kindergarten through 6th grade. I am very patient and caring.

I am available to tutor in your home or in a public library. I will travel 15 miles from my home in Mission Valley (92108). If we meet outside of that area, I will charge for one-way extra driving time. If you must cancel a session, please inform me by phone, text, or email at least 10 hours before the scheduled session. I look forward to teaming up with you to help your child succeed!
