About Lorraine

I have been teaching for over 15 years and have taught elementary students, high school students and junior college students. I have taught a wide range of classes including basic math, English, Web Design (HTML), Introduction to the Computer, Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Writing, Business English, Business Math and Career Development. I graduated with honors at Trident University, Los Medanos College and also at California State University Northridge. I have an MBA, an Associate Degree and a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies. I also studied Contract Law for a year and have a certificate in Contract Management. I also recently completed a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) course at Global TESOL College. I really enjoy teaching and I love to see my students progress and learn. I find that teaching is also a learning experience for me as I learn from my students as I teach them. I believe that each student has the potential to learn and the key is to unlock your learning style. After I figure out how you learn best, I can develop a learning approach that best fits your needs. Also, I try to make learning a fun experience because I want you to enjoy your subject matter. I think you will find I am a patient tutor who will do what I can to make sure you understand your lessons before we move forward. My goal will be to make sure you succeed!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught as a substitute in Kindergarten through 6th grade including a wide variety of subjects such as Math, English, Geography, World History, American History and Computer Technology. I also taught some of these subjects to adult students at a business college, a junior college and an adult education center. I have 2 teaching credentials in adult education.

English

I was an English major at California State University Sacramento. Also, I recently completed a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages) certification class at Global TESOL College. I taught English as an adult education instructor and was a substitute teacher for high schools in California. Also, I have tutored students in English for WyzAnt and each of the students improved their grades after several tutoring sessions with me.

General Computer

I have taught computer technology classes in elementary, high school, adult education schools, business colleges and most recently for 9 years at a junior college. My specialty is in HTML which is the language used for Web Design. But, I am capable of teaching Word, Excel, Power Point, Introduction to Windows and Introduction to Computers. I have taken classes in SAP and was an SAP trainer and also was an Access Database Administrator in one of my jobs.

Grammar

I studied English in college and at one time was an English major with an emphasis in creative writing. I have one awards for poetry and write short stories as well. I have also taught English in elementary, junior high and high schools. I was also an editor for the school newspaper in high school.

HTML

I taught HTML for 9 years at a junior college and also designed Web pages for businesses and for other teachers. I had a teacher's web page posted for my students that was interactive. I keep up on the latest computer technology and am always advancing my HTML and Web Design abilities.
