First, I thank you for perusing my profile in the incredibly important decision to find a tutor for your child or yourself. I have been a public school teacher and curriculum expert for 22 years. In my experience, I have discovered and know for a fact that every student has the capabilities to succeed in academics. Often, there is a a disconnect between how a subject is being delivered on the instructional side and the learning is being assimilated. The gap between the twain is where a talented tutor creates a bridge. That is what I have done for my entire career in the professional field of education. I have been a featured speaker at conventions and workshops throughout the state of California. As a teacher I look at the talents and skills of each individual student, make assessments as to where their gaps are and discover how to build that ever-important bridge to academic success.
I am a firm believer in inquiry-based learning, which essentially means that a student builds their own understanding of content by using their knowledge and intellect then scaffolding the new information onto that base. As a tutor, this is a perfect blend of using what the student already understands to build higher levels of intellect in ascertaining total success in a academic subject.
In short, I am an expert educator in English, reading, writing, and social sciences, where I help a student add understanding and knowledge to what they already know.
I appreciate your consideration in contacting me as a tutor. I know that this decision is very important and the success of your child or yourself is paramount to their or your future. Thank you.
