Hi! I am an experienced private tutor and credentialed teacher who has a passion for teaching children and adults. I provide individualized instruction tailored to each student's needs. I am patient and have good rapport with students of all ages. It is my goal to help you or your child learn and succeed!

I graduated from U.C. Berkeley and earned my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from San Francisco State University. I have taught elementary school for over seven years. I also spent a summer working as a clinician/tutor for Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes and provided one-on-one instruction in phonics, reading, writing, and spelling. My private tutoring experience includes elementary and middle school subjects as well as adult English/ESL.

I have worked with a variety of learners, from those with special needs and learning disabilities to gifted and talented students. In addition to tutoring subject matter, I can help students with homework, organization, study skills, and test preparation.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I look forward to hearing from you!
