I've been working with high school students for the past 17 years as an instructional assistant in a classroom setting. I have extensive experience in helping students in math, English, science, reading, and spelling. I can also work with elementary school age students as well.

My specialty is with students who have learning disabilities, ADHD, and Asperger's. I have a B.A. in psychology from CSUN, which helps me to better assist students in their needs. I enjoy seeing students master a concept that I have taught them.

My teaching style incorporates individual and small group lessons which should reinforce what the student is learning in school. In addition to my professional experience, I have helped my own children with their homework throughout their school years.
