I am interested in part-time tutoring for all ages, i.e., elementary education to adults. I have done tutoring on a voluntary basis for adults but would enjoy working with much younger groups as well who are in their formative years. My credentials are having obtained the CBEST teaching credential and I also have a Master’s degree in Education with an emphasis in Community Health. My undergraduate degree in Nursing and second Master’s degree in Safety Management & Engineering Technology has given me a broad exposure and knowledge in the health and safety sciences area. I also have a combined work experience in nursing and safety management of 32 years.
Specialty areas that I would be comfortable tutoring would be the following:
•Anatomy & Physiology
•English as a 2nd language
My approach to tutoring is to obtain a baseline as to where the student is in terms of his/her level of knowledge; work from the baseline and at the ideal learning pace of each student; repetition is key from my perspective if learning is to take place; patience is also key to tutoring in order to obtain a good learning environment and working relationship.
I have experience as a volunteer tutor with grade school children in the areas of grammar, writing, spelling, reading, vocabulary and science. My education background is a Master's in Health Education and I also have the CBEST teaching credential for California educators. The key to learning is to find out how best your child learns and to use those techniques to his/her advantage. Not every student learns the same way or at the same pace as their peers. When you discover what learning technique works best for your child, he/she will begin to show progress and not feel less capable than his/her peers. My strengths are patience with my student's and repetition.
