About Sheila

With a strong understanding of child development, I have been consistently recognized by families, professional colleagues, and ECE directors for my excellent aptitude in understanding and handling young children. I possess knowledge of prudent development behavioral theories teaching strategies that integrate use of dramatic play, art, and social games to teach novel skills and concepts. My background in designing engaging lesson plans and curriculum in accordance with theoretical models of early childhood learning enables me to effectively meet all the physical, intellectual, language, emotional and social needs of children while still contributing creativity and an individualized approach to learning.

Early in my professional career, I taught English to early language learners in the public school system in Washington, DC. My students were primarily pre-K and kindergarteners of diverse backgrounds and varying language skills. Throughout my two year tenure at West Elementary School, I collaborated with the grade level teachers and other ESL instructors to create individualized learning programs for older English language learners.

I’ve built my career with a particular commitment to ensuring access and achievement for children with exceptional needs. My work history demonstrates over 500 families of children with special needs for whom I have fulfilled service provider and case management functions, including training/monitoring child care providers and providing social skills group instruction.

I am invested in building relationships with each of the families and children I work with and enjoy watching the learning and growth the children and caretakers demonstrate over time. I am excited to meet each and every one of you, and I look forward to getting to know you and your families over the course of our relationship.

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)

With an MA in Elementary Teaching and over ten years experience working with young children, I feel confident that I am qualified and capable of working with this population. My career started in the classroom setting teaching to Pre-k and Kindergarten students, and throughout the years I have broadened my scope and worked with both younger and older children in the home setting. I think it is important to identify a child's strengths and explore creative and fun activities that teach a skill/concept through the innate modality that works for the student. Let's explore and learn together!

ESL/ESOL

I have prior classroom experience teaching English as a Second Language to school-age children in Washington, DC. My work experience has afforded me the chance to work with multicultural families across Los Angeles, and many of my clients have struggled in some capacity with their English fluency. Currently, I am in the process of getting my certification to become a TOEFL instructor.
