Hi, I'm an empty-nester mom and looking for some part-time tutoring work. I have two grown daughters and have always loved teaching. Before having children, I received a B.A. in Psychology, a M.A. in Sociology, and a Secondary Teaching Credential at California State University at Chico, CA. I taught Sociology at C.S.U., Chico for one year before I moved to L.A. with my husband for his career.

I volunteered for many years at my children's pre-school, elementary, junior, and senior high schools in Brentwood, CA. and Palos Verdes, CA. I love teaching children and helping them to succeed! I enjoy tutoring all subjects, especially English; writing, reading,and comprehension. I have many local references available from past and current tutoring jobs. I have some afternoons, early evenings and some week-ends free, if notified in advance.

Most improved, thanks to Kai! — Kai has been tutoring our daughter for three months, primarily in language arts. Just a week ago, my daughter, who has struggled with reading comprehension, was awarded the Most Improved Student in Reading! I am sure that Kai's patient, methodical approach had everything to do with this improvement. Great tutor whom I strongly recommend. ...
