My love of teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning. As a summa cum laude graduate and having taught for many years, I have learned how hard work and dedication can pay off. With an MFA in Creative Writing and having completed graduate coursework as a PhD student in English & Creative Nonfiction, I have vast experience in the fields of writing and literature.

I specialize in tutoring English and Writing for success in school (elementary through college/university level) and on the GRE exam. I also offer editorial feedback for thesis and dissertation work. During tutoring sessions, I keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign useful homework and provide periodic assessments.

I hold myself to a high standard. For that reason, I often ask for feedback. I hold to a 24 hour cancellation policy but do offer makeup classes.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked as an elementary instructional assistant, primarily in special education, for the South Bay Union School District in San Diego for 15 years. As an assistant, I tutored in reading, writing, special needs, and music. After entering the MFA program at San Diego State University, I continued working with K-6 as a substitute teacher for two years.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked as an ESL Instructor for Converse School of Language in San Diego, California and am currently tutoring two students in ESL and passing the TOEFL.

Reading

I worked as an instructional assistant in the South Bay Union School District for 15 years. Most of my work entailed tutoring special education students one on one or in small groups in reading and phonics, as well as in practicing their spelling list words each week. I have been trained in the LindaMoodBell phonics program as well as in working with students three years or more below grade level.

Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor in study skills because I have taught and tutored in English, Writing, and Reading, all of which require strong study skills, for over 15 years. Having earned a B.A. in English, summa cum laude, and a PhD in English & Creative Writing, I know firsthand the study skills needed to succeed.
