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.

ADD/ADHD

I have a Mild/ Moderate teaching credential with an Autism spectrum disorder certificate. I have 10+ years of experience working with students with ADD/ADHD. I use teaching strategies that help the student stay focus as well as break the lesson in to small segments giving the students a feeling of accomplishment.

CBEST

As a credential teacher I have taken the CBEST test and am aware of the content of the test. I have taught test taking strategies, reading and writing, as well as writing to a prompt. I have coached Pentathlon teams, as well as new teachers to take the RICA

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a California multiple subject teaching credential that authorizes me to teach grade levels k-8. I have worked as an elementary school teacher for the Fontana unified School District where I taught 6th grade. I also taught for the Silver Valley unified school district Kindergarten. During that time I received extensive training in the areas of reading and writing, in programs such as 6 traits of writing, Thinking Maps and provide staff development on Instructional Strategies that work by Marzano.

Handwriting

As an educator with 20+ years of teaching experience in the primary level I taught kindergarten and how to form their letters. In 6th grade we had handwriting lessons and as a principal I purchased a handwriting curriculum. I still have all these materials.

Phonics

I taught kindergarten for 3 years where the essential learning objective was to teach students the sounds of the alphabet and how to read. Each day we focused on a specific sound with activities. Once students were able to recognize each letter and sound we moved on to teaching the fundamentals of reading, sounding out words and constant blends. In primary grades I taught syllabication of words, and was trained in Language Acquisition.

Social Studies

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and for 10 years I taught 6th grade social studies. I have also taught history in the primary grades, world history as well as geography.

Study Skills

I taught study skills to my middle school, high school and college students. I taught them how to organize their notes, highlight important information, graphic organizers, and note cards. I taught my students organizational skills, and test taking strategies. I created study guides and practice test for my students.
