About Destiny

I am a former classroom teacher who taught English to 7th and 8th graders as a full time teacher in Oakland. I also taught English as a Second Language (ESL) / English Language Development (ELD) to 9th-12th graders at Berkeley High School.

In this course I provided instruction to students at various skill levels. Additionally in this course I focused on improving my students grammar skills, writing skills, and building oral fluency. I also taught Senior Composition at Berkeley High. My objectives in this course were to enhance my students essay writing and public speaking skills. It was my love of reading and writing that compelled me to become an English teacher.

I enjoy providing 1 on 1 tutoring because in doing so I have the opportunity to provide specialized support that is tailored to the students specific needs. Also knowing that I've helped my student succeed at their learning goal makes this work very fulfilling!

As a tutor I will partner with students and parents on creating goals for sessions, assist students with any assignments, and prepare students for upcoming tests or exams.
