One-on-one instruction is the key to helping students achieve their maximum potential!
With over 20 years of tutoring experience and a genuine passion for education, I take the time to get to know my students so that I can tailor every lesson to their individual needs. My enthusiasm is contagious, and I create a learning environment that is both enjoyable and rewarding.
I began formal tutoring in high school. I visited a local elementary school and helped the students with their homework and conducted exercises that assisted in the development of vocabulary, reading and basic math skills. When I graduated from college, I worked for a local agency before finally branching out as an independent tutor.
I have taught students of all ages (K-Adult), including those with disabilities such as Dyslexia and ADD; I even tutored a high school sophomore who was blind in one eye. In addition to subject-specific instruction(I specialize in Mathematics and English), I have worked comprehensively with students on their overall academic performance, including but not limited to organization, study skills, time management, etc. and correspond with both parents and teachers to measure and track success.
Please contact me for more information on how I can help you or your child achieve your goals.
I began tutoring Algebra 1 to my peers when I took the course myself in the seventh grade. It remains one of my favorite math courses and approximately 20% of my tutoring experience is in this subject.
I began working with elementary school students when I was in eleventh grade. I participated in an after school program where my colleagues and I helped students at a neighboring school with their reading (reading aloud, vocabulary, comprehension, etc).
After graduating college, I began to teach 20 hours/week in people's homes as my second job. At any given time, 30-40% of my students were K-6. I have taught all of the following elementary subjects:
- Language (Vocabulary, Grammar, Writing)
- Study Skills (Organization, Time Management, Test Preparation)
UCSD (Business Management)
