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.

CBEST

I passed the CBEST in the 99th percentile in all three sections. I took the CBEST in the electronic fashion. I have been teaching test prep in a variety of other subjects.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified substitute teacher with a valid CBEST certificate, and I am currently enrolled in Child Development classes. I have been tutoring K-6 for over a decade and I am now working towards my teaching credential for elementary school. I teach a third grade class for a month down in the San Diego area every November.

Public Speaking

I was a four-year MUN participant in high school, attending over 50 conferences and winning a gavel at one. I was also the lead anchor on our high school television network, as well as the editor of all TV news. I studied public speaking at UC Davis and I am now married to a renowned public speaking coach and TV news writer.

Special Needs

I have been working with Special Needs children for over a decade. I began babysitting and tutoring autistic children in 2002, and from there began to work with children with mild to severe forms of ADHD and dyslexia. I have substitute taught Special Needs students in the Napa Valley School District and was on call for Special Needs in the Calistoga and St. Helena schools.

Study Skills

I have been tutoring children with an emphasis in long term study skills for over a decade. Utilizing creative ways to study subjects from chemistry to history and learning to organize notes and how to effectively read are all skills that I have taught in the past.
