Bio

Dear prospective students and parents,

I've taught Math and English for 4 years and am a credentialed teacher in California. I have tutored numerous students with other tutoring agencies, and I enjoy helping them succeed.

I find that working one-on-one with students fosters relationships and often provides the opportunity to pinpoint gaps in their knowledge base, skill sets, and processing of the material.

Dear prospective students and parents,

I've taught Math and English for 4 years and am a credentialed teacher in California. I have tutored numerous students with other tutoring agencies, and I enjoy helping them succeed.

I find that working one-on-one with students fosters relationships and often provides the opportunity to pinpoint gaps in their knowledge base, skill sets, and processing of the material.

Students that I have helped one-on-one have experienced dramatic improvement in their classroom grades and overall confidence. One student in particular went from an F to an A in a matter of a couple of months. Another student had an aha moment in the short time I worked with her and gained a valuable life skill of taking responsibility for her own learning.

Preferred formats for attaching documents you would like me to edit/proofread: .doc, .docx, .pdf, .jpg,, .txt, or shared Google Docs.

If I have given you my phone number, please leave a message or send me a text if I do not pick up. I am usually busy doing something else.

I am accustomed to traveling throughout San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, including communities such as Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana, Rialto, Ontario, Corona, Lake Elsinore, Sun City, Menifee, Murrieta, Temecula, Hemet, San Bernardino, Colton, Riverside, Moreno Valley, Redlands, Highland, Yucaipa, Calimesa, Beaumont, Banning, Idyllwild, Desert Hot Springs, Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City, Indian Wells, and everything in between. I am willing to go to great distances to help you succeed.

Feedback from students/parents (individual results may vary):
-"My son is feeling more confident and even participated in class the other day." Mother of Geometry student

-"My son gave you a compliment. He said that you are a big help, and he is understanding it a lot better. The other day at school, the teacher was writing a problem on the board, and [my son] knew the answer before the teacher [finished]. It means a lot to me for my son to be happy about school." Father of Algebra 1
