I am currently teaching privately for students in a homeschool setting. My current job requires me to formulate my own curriculum, homework, study guides, and tests. During this position I was also fortunate to teach in 14 countries, using the culture and history to drive the curriculum. My background includes teaching general education (K-8), special education, tutoring, running a ski school, running a learning center, and several after school intervention programs. My love for education and the power education provides motivates me to be the best at my trade. Each individual learns through different strategies and methods. I believe my strength is finding the circuit that enables each student to be successful. I am so excited to work with new clients and begin the journey!!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I taught special education in California for 4 years. I actively worked with ADHD students. I wrote IEP's and also worked closely with our school counselor and psychologists to diagnose students.

Autism

I taught special education for 4 years in California and many of my students were diagnosed with autism. I have knowledge of OT, PT, and speech therapy techniques. I understand the behaviors and techniques to overcome sensory situations. I have continued my work in special education in the community through volunteering and actively being apart of the special needs community.

Basketball

I was a basketball coach for 4 years for 7th and 8th grade. I also played basketball in high school. In addition, I coached high school athletics and understand the concepts of drills, applied skills, and game sense.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education grades K-8. I have taught several grade levels including 2nd,3rd, 4th, 5th, Kindergarten, and substitute taught for all grade levels while finishing my degree. My current teaching experience is teaching two grade levels in a split classroom 4th/5th. I continue to take courses to keep updated on new practices and teaching strategies and have been a integral part of each school district I have been employed by.

Elementary Math

Math is fundamental to a child's education. So many students have math anxiety or miss key skills in their early years that haunt them throughout their education. I pride myself in making math exciting and enjoyable to learn. There are several ways to the end of a problem, and often showing that roadwork, enables a student to find success. I have taught after school math intervention to advanced math and enjoy all components of math. I look forward to helping each student develop their love for math.

Phonics

I am certified in K-8 elementary education. Phonics and reading are huge components to this degree. I have also taught after-school reading intervention classes. In addition, I have been a special education teacher where phonics is the key to verbal skills, especially in regards to non-verbal students.

Softball

I coached high school softball for 3 years. I also played softball for 10 years and was an all state catcher. I am well versed in the rules, game, drills, and techniques required to help someone learn, improve, or move to the next level.

Special Needs

I taught Special Education in California for 4 years. My students were in grades K-2 and had several different learning challenges. I monitored and facilitated three different grade levels, curriculums, and 12 students with various needs. I actively engaged students in the learning process through the use of diverse manipulatives, teaching strategies, and learning styles. I prepared and implemented all Individual Education Plans for each student. I represented the leadership team, Principal Advisory council, Student council, conflict resolution team for 2 years in each category. And I taught reading intervention classes for struggling readers for 2 years.

Study Skills

I have taught special education and K-8 all grades and subjects. I have developed sound study skills and routines for students of all ages, backgrounds, and aptitudes. My current position requires the students I teach to have polished skills as they travel and complete as professional tennis players. We have a condensed day, and learning to keep detailed notes, plan ahead for tests, complete assignments on time are crucial components to their success. Getting organized is essential for any student and can decrease stress, test anxiety, and increase productivity and overall grades.
