I am interested in tutoring elementary school aged children. I started working as a child care specialist at the age of 12. I have been a Nanny for three years for three girls, and I have taught for over 12 years. With a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, I now know several strategies to help students struggling with concepts in Reading
, and Science
. I specialize in Math: Pre Algebra
, Algebra, English
, Science and Reading. I taught Kindergarten
for five years, fifth grade
for four years, second grade
for one year, third grade
for one year and first grade
for one year. I have 12 years of experience lesson planning and devising innovative ideas to teach phonics
, grammar, science, and math. Working one on one with a child is a wonderful opportunity to focus and delve deeper into what a child's challenges and strengths are.
I am respectful and patient and recognize the power of clear communication in order to learn. I have been told by the principals that I have an excellent rapport with children. My classroom is known for its calm and quiet atmosphere. I have high expectations, routines, and consistency. I am constantly inventing teaching strategies to surprise and motivate students to participate in the learning process. I help children reach his/her potential while developing a life-long love of learning. There is always room for growth; mistakes are opportunities to learn!
I am flexible with time. With a 24-hour cancellation policy, I do offer make-up classes.
A quiet well-lit place to study is extremely important. I have room at my home, and I am also willing to travel to another location.
I am eager to hear from you and support your child in their educational endeavors.
