Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught and tutored kids for about ten years. In June 2010, I will receive my teaching credential. I have taught language arts, acting, and speech. I can assist a student who needs help in writing, grammar, and literature. I am very patient and realize that language arts could be very challenging. I am willing to work very hard to assist a student to succeed in any way I can. If a student needs assistance in reading, I have an expertise in this area. I have passed the RICA exam which demonstrates knowledge in teaching reading strategies. I have also passed the CBEST and the multi-subject CSET so I am knowledgeable in language arts content.

ESL/ESOL

I am experienced in the area of ESL, having traveled to China and Mexico teaching workshops in this subject. In June 2010, I will receive my teaching credential. I have taught language arts, acting, and speech. I can assist a student who needs help in speaking, writing, and reading English. I am very patient and realize that learning English could be very challenging. I am willing to work very hard to assist a student to succeed in any way I can. If a student needs assistance in reading, I have an expertise in this area. I have passed the RICA exam which demonstrates knowledge in teaching reading strategies.

My goal is to work hard for you and my commitment is to do the very best I can for the student to be a success in learning the English language.

Public Speaking

I am an artistic director of a playhouse and also a high school English teacher. I understand the subject of public speaking and acting very well. I am an expert at strategies in presenting speeches, debates, monologues, and performances. I have also taught communication skills at a middle school for LAUSD. In addition, I can help a student overcome shyness and help build confidence through relaxation techniques and useful communication devices.

I can see a speech or monologue and describe what is the key thing to improve upon and accentuate the positives in assisting the student to give the best presentation possible.
