I have clear California teaching credentials in k-12 multiple subjects and in secondary English. I also have a BA in English and an MA in Instructional Technology. I love to read and write, and I am a published author. After spending many years in the classroom, I've come to the conclusion that students often learn best in one-on-one and small group environments. Not everyone learns in the same way, through the same modalities, or takes the same amount of time to understand or master a skill or concept. If you or your child is struggling in English, reading, language arts or writing, or in any elementary subject, I know I can help! Give me a call and let's talk. Together, we can discover the learning approach that works for you. I look forward to meeting you.
