My recent students have needed help with phonics, spelling, and memorizing math facts.

I taught for ten years at the Corona-Norco Unified School District. I've taught Kindergarten, first, third, and fifth grades. My recent students have needed help with phonics, spelling, and memorizing math facts. With my undergraduate degree in Fine Arts from California State University in Fullerton and a Teaching Credential (K-8) from Chapman University I have a creative background to address student needs creatively. I am well versed in teaching elementary education - all subjects - from the foundations of reading and writing and mathematics. I enjoy finding the right modality to meet each students way of learning.

On a personal level. I am married. I am a mom. My son just graduated from college and I am available to tutor. I have two cats.

What makes an excellent teacher is the ability to focus on the needs of the student, the goals of the curriculum and good communication skills. A teacher also needs to be able to adapt learning styles to meet learning outcomes.

The ability to breakdown the complexities of language into bite size morsels (i.e. utilizing phonics, vocabulary, sight words, and grammar to continually build more language skills) is essential. Making memorizing interesting and engaging is a key to maintaining student engagement.

I am a very focused and caring teacher. I make learning relevant and enjoyable so students tend to enjoy me as a teacher. I am very personable.

Highly Recommended!

My daughter is considered a pre-k student and has just completed her 3rd tutoring lesson with Ms. Dawn. I was searching for a tutor that would work with my daughter on an ongoing basis to teach her foundational concepts and to continually challenge her with new ideas and concepts. I'm very pleased that I found Ms. Dawn. She has done an outstanding job working my daughter. She is patient and able to keep a 4 year old engaged throughout the tutoring session. She is prepared and takes the time to make sure my daughter has the materials she needs to succeed. I look forward to continuing our sessions with her. I highly recommend.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Dawn has made an immediate impact with my daughters math and spelling skills. Prior before Dawn, my daughter lacked a bit of confidence in her work. Since tutoring with Dawn, she is more confident and doing much better in the subjects that she had trouble with.
