I am a certified California teacher with a Multiple Subject Credential and Single Subject Credentials in Mathematics
authorization. I have been a private tutor for several years and have had students and parents tell me that I was the first tutor that made a difference in their education, that helped them to understand difficult concepts and/or fully prepared them to take an important exam.
I have worked with students who speak English as a second language
and students with learning disabilities such as ADHD
My teaching style is all about helping my students understand the material from the inside out through discussion and critical thinking strategies, so that when I'm not there they will still understand the material and know how to succeed. This is achieved through critical questioning and thinking strategies as I help my students answer their own questions by analyzing the problems logically and/or looking at them from another angle.
Sometimes I demonstrate an important point by giving my students an example and asking them to apply what they just learned to their own lives or work. Critical thinking and analysis skills are essential for long term success and will help the student to succeed in all areas of their education. I actively encouraging my students to think critically and ask questions; to that end, I am extremely patient, kind and motivated to see my students succeed.
I differentiate my lessons to meet each of my students' specific learning goals through using their strengths and experiences. For SAT
Test-Prep students, I teach critical test-taking strategies which maximize time usage and focus students' attention on key areas as well as offer in-depth knowledge as to how the tests are composed, scored and weighted.
My schedule is flexible and I am willing to meet my students where they feel comfortable. Nothing is more important to me than my student's success, and my students always leave my lessons feeling that they have learned something valuable. Thank you for reading
my profile and I look forward to meeting you.
