About Holly

Hello, my name is Holly G.! I was born and raised here in Bakersfield, and attended BHS and then CSUB. I have a BA, current Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, and a Master's in Education. I served as a student mentor throughout college and have taught 1st, 2nd, and 5th grades. I was also an Academic Coach for two years, where I served as a support staff member to the students and staff at a local elementary school.

I have a passion for learning and love to share this with my students! I believe that all children can learn...its a matter of differentiating instruction to meet their individual needs. I love to learn and have fun while doing it!

I have a Master's degree in Education and 7+ years teaching experience in hands-on teaching elementary math. I was a member of the Common Core implementation leadership team of a local school district and have extensive knowledge in the area of Common Core math techniques and resources.

As an elementary teacher and an Academic Coach I had the privilege of teaching reading strategies to students TK-6. Not only am I able to teach and support the skills of reading itself, but also comprehension strategies that are essential in becoming a good, confident reader.

I served as a member of the Common Core implementation leadership team at a local school district and have extensive knowledge of, not only standards and their coherence, but I am proficient in teaching the skills needed to support growth toward mastery of the standards.

I am a credentialed Multiple Subject Teacher (TK-6) and have 7 1/2 years of classroom/school site teaching experience, as well as 2 years of tutoring and mentoring as a college student.

As a 1st and 2nd grade teacher, phonics instruction was part of my daily routines with my students, as it serves as the foundation for reading and writing. As the Academic Coach, I was the lead support person and teacher trainer for phonics instruction in grades TK-2.

I would love to support students all over Bakersfield! I have a heart for children and a passion for learning. I love to laugh and have fun while learning :)

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.

Common Core

I have a Master's in Education and 8+ years of teaching experience. I served as a Common Core Implementation leader in a local school district and was also the school site leader of implementation at my home school site. I also led school site and district wide trainings on Common Core implementation. I have extensive knowledge of CCSS coherence as well as best practices and resources associated with the standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BA in Liberal Studies, a valid CA Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, and Master's in Education. I have 8+ years of teaching experience in an elementary classroom setting and was also an Academic Coach (academic support to teachers and students).

Handwriting

As a primary elementary teacher, I have taught handwriting as an independent and academically embedded subject. I have experience in teaching handwriting to TK and Kindergartners who are first time learners, and I have also had the opportunity to teach 1st-4th grade students handwriting techniques to support them.

Phonics

My credential program and Master's program both provided me with phonics and literacy training that have proven to be valuable and essential in teaching/tutoring. I also have 8+ years of teaching experience, especially focused in TK-2nd grades in which phonics instruction and intervention play a key role in daily activities. I was able to successfully teach and intervene with large populations of diverse students in the area of phonics instruction.
