My specialty is in English language development. I am able to help students from Elementary school through college level coursework, in related fields. My major was in Developmental Psychology, where I received excellent grades: graduated with honors and a 3.7 GPA from San Francisco State University, and am attending graduate school in the fall of 2013 to pursue Developmental Psychology. I can help students with a wide variety of coursework from essays, vocabulary, grammar, to standardized testing. I have experience working with younger kids and those with learning disabilities. I can help with other areas, such as developing good study habits and organization, as oftentimes these areas are needed to make a solid foundation for success in educational coursework. I am willing to travel outside the San Francisco area, travel rates may apply. I pride myself on professionalism, and punctuality. Each student's success is vitally important to me.

This is the building blocks for the later years so a fundamental understanding of math critical for success
