I have a PhD and lots of experience teaching English. I have taught literature and writing to students from 1st grade through college. I like to make learning fun, and my method of teaching writing is particularly effective. I also find helping students improve their SAT scores and write winning college entrance essays very rewarding. I have some great success stories. Let me know if you'd like to see my references. And while I'm not a native speaker of French, I love the language and culture and am experienced and successful at teaching introductory French in ways that make it fun for young or old.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a teaching credential for California for High School English. In addition, I have completed coursework toward an elementary credential including educational theory, child development, elementary math, a reading specialist course, as well as many writing workshops. Most importantly, I have experience teaching grades K-6th in a private girls' school in California. I am also homeschooling my own children and tutoring many others of elementary ages.


For many years, I have taught English classes at the high school and college levels that were more than 50% non-native speakers of English. I have taken classes and attended seminars to learn how best to serve these populations. My experience and training has allowed me to help students achieve their goals quickly and effectively.


I have many years' experience teaching Spanish to students of all ages. My PhD is in Comparative Literatures, which means I studied literature in different languages, one of which was Spanish. In addition to studying Spanish at the graduate level, I also lived and taught in Mexico City. I like to make learning languages practical and fun.
