I want your child to enhance his/her skills and enjoy the love of learning!
I am a friendly, kind, and patient tutor who wants your child to excel
in their academics!
My mission for your child is to be a motivated, competent, life long learner, and to be proficient in Language
Arts and Mathematics
. I believe that once a child receives all the foundational skills at the elementary level, that child should be able to pursue and succeed in middle school and high school. I know I can ensure that your child reaches his/her goals by continuous subject preparation and guided practice of each subject. I believe the values of positive reinforcement and encouragement play a huge part in the learning experience.
I have 7 years of teaching experience and 10 years total of working with students inside and outside the classroom. Right now I am a 4th grade
teacher at Petaluma City Schools. In addition, I have taught in Southern California for 4 years. The students I teach are of a variety of race and backgrounds. I also teach English
Language Learners as well. I take great pride and satisfaction when my students are able to understand Language Arts
, Social Studies
, and Science
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Cinema Television and Arts at Cal
I received my Teaching Credential and my Masters in Education at Cal Poly University Pomona.
