I provide services in reading, writing, math, science, music, special education needs and coaching in certain sports areas. Currently, I substitute teach in the Hemet Unified, Temecula Unified and Temecula Prep school districts. I've been teaching for over 30 years and possess many strategies to help students become successful in school. I've been employed as a reading specialist, a writing tutor, a math teacher in regular education and special education classrooms, have been a jazz musician for over 10 years and currently play gospel music in weekends and currently coach two teams for a club volleyball company. My approach to teaching has been to look at the needs of the student, set attainable goals, develop a plan of action and apply it to the subject matter that is being taught. My services are by appointment only and my references are available upon request.

Whatever your child's needs are, I can make a quick assessment and develop a plan of action to help your child to success. I know I come with the confidence and expertise necessary to make your child successful in any part of their life. By collaborating with all the people involved with your child's success, people like current teachers, previous teachers, SAT or STAR results, parents and school administrators/staff, we can see immediate results and lifelong progress. Would love to hear from you and have a great day!

Baseball

I've been a player for more than 15 years and have coach one year in junior college. I've also been certified to coach at the high school level and understand all the laws, rules and regulations that need to be followed. I am very step by step and hands on when it comes to baseball skills and softball skills. By demonstrating and correcting flaws in body mechanics and motions, I've been very successful in improving players skills.

Drums

I've been a musician since 4th grade and have been actively playing 50+ years. I've been a drummer for nearly 20 years in the areas of jazz, gospel, classical and orchestral. In fact, I would be considered a drummer/percussionist. I have given private lessons for the last 10 years ranging in age from 10 year to 45 years old. Presently, I continue to play for my church, 3 times a month on average.

Elementary (K-6th)

I've been elementary classroom teacher for 16 years and 10 years at the middle school level. I've implemented both holistic and direct teaching techniques and have incorporated 6 years of GATE and special education strategies in a classroom, after school program and one-to-one tutoring settings. All in all, this teaching strategies were coordinated between teaching reading, writing, math, science, social studies, P.E. and community service.

Volleyball

I've been playing volleyball since I was 12 years old. My own children have played club and high school volleyball excelling at the highest level. I've coached recreational volleyball both middle and high school level for 7 years, then was the head coach of volleyball teams at the middle school I worked at. Presently, I'm head coach of a club volleyball team at the local level and have worked with 14's, 12's and presently 10's year old girls. I've also been an assistant coach at the beach volleyball for 16 year old boys as well.
