After graduating with a bachelors in psychology from the University of Southern California, I was accepted into Teach for America and taught kindergarten in the Bay Area for two years. I recently moved to San Diego to attend SDSU for graduate school where I am earning my Masters in Education and EdS in School Psychology. I have over two years of paid experience teaching elementary aged children as well as experience taking and excelling in high school, undergraduate, and graduate level course work in all subjects. I am a skilled teacher with an easy and accessible instructional style.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught kindergarten at a high-performing charter school (API over 850) for two years. I currently hold a multiple subjects credential in the state of California, so I am qualified to teach all elementary school subjects.

Elementary Math

While teaching kindergarten for two years, I specialized in the math curriculum. At my school, I was in charge of interpreting the common core standards to create unit and lesson plans for the entire year. I was also responsible for mentoring another kindergarten teacher in the area of math instruction.

Phonics

I taught kindergarten at a high-performing charter school (API over 850) for two years. I currently hold a multiple subjects credential in the state of California. Presently, I am also running phonics interventions for kindergarten students at a local elementary school.

Spanish

As part of my current graduate school program at SDSU, I am working towards my bilingual teaching certification. Aside from college course work in Spanish and studying abroad in Spain, I also provide early literacy interventions in Spanish once a week to kindergarten students at a local elementary school.

Study Skills

Part of my work as a kindergarten teacher was teaching new students how to be successful in school. This meant teaching them good study and homework habits and working with parents to establish routines. I worked with students and families to come up with solutions to time management problems as well as fussiness when it came to getting work done at home.
