As an elementary school teacher, I worked with children who were behind grade level. As a result, I have been trained to teach social studies and science, while keeping my students engaged. At the present time, I work with first through sixth grade special education children along with children who are behind grade level and help them with language arts and mathematics. I strive to use encouragement and positive reinforcement to help promote the learning process. In addition, I utilize manipulatives to help children understand mathematical and numerical concepts as well as reciprocal teaching to teach expository text within social studies and science courses. I believe that children need to experience literature in a positive way that demonstrates the power of a great book! I have worked with a variety of students that are still acquiring the english language and thoroughly enjoy working with children and adults who are learning english. I also have my CLAD.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a teaching credential. I taught elementary school for 9 years.

Elementary Math

I taught math to fourth and fifth grade children for years. At the present time, I work with second through fifth grade students who are behind grade level and help them with mathematics.

ESL/ESOL

I teach ELD (English Language Development) to second through sixth grade children and I have also taught ESL to adults as a tutor and as an instructor with a community college.

Handwriting

I taught handwriting to my class as an elementary school teacher. We would practice by placing a thin piece of graph paper on top of another piece of paper so that the students could copy the correct cursive for each letter. I demonstrated to my class how to write each letter.

Prealgebra

You will see that prealgebra is one of the subjects that I am qualified to teach by looking at my profile. Thank you!

Reading

I am an experienced and credentialed elementary teacher and I work with children that are below grade level in small groups with Anaheim City School District. Thank you for your time, :)
