I have been a Language Arts tutor since 2006 and since 2009, credentialed to teach all of the subjects in social science (history, government, geography, and economics) at the secondary level. I hold a a master’s degree in social science from Antioch University and my undergraduate degree from Northwestern University is in Education.
Currently, I work part-time as a Library Media Teacher at Santa Monica High School and as a literacy teacher at The Kelter Center in Los Angeles where I have been trained to use state-of-the art, research-based methods for teaching all aspects of literacy, including decoding, reading comprehension, writing, grammar and syntax, vocabulary, and spelling. I have also worked for Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, using their critically acclaimed instructional programs for teaching basic reading skills (decoding). I also teach reading comprehension skills, necessary for success in middle and high school level subjects.
I enjoy tutoring because I like young people and learning about them, their interests and their ways of learning, and finding the best way for them to learn a particular skill. A vast majority of my students advance by at least one-grade level in their reading scores, and I have recommendations from many satisfied parents and students.
As a computer tutor for adults, I have been using Microsoft Office products on both the PC and the Mac for more than 15 years, and I was a computer trainer for a Fortune 500 company. I have references from many happy students.
