For nearly 20 years, I've been educating students. I started as a substitute teacher in Compton Unified before moving on to Torrance and eventually to Centinela Valley Unified High School District near LAX. In that time, I've taught different grade levels in various subjects. Eventually, I became a full-time special education teacher at CVUHSD.
I've been teaching in the district for more than 11 years, and have covered the following topics: RSP English, History, and government/economics; reading intervention, and general ed. English. Also, I worked as an afterschool tutor and homeschool teacher for the district.
Before I entered the teaching profession, I had a short career as a journalist. I was an intern reporter for Costa Mesa's Daily Pilot, a stringer for Gardena Valley News, and a freelance writer for various publications.
I still freelance on occasion. This time, it's for Internet publications such as Helium.com or Wikinut.com. I feel that being involved in this particular profession is important. It can enhance my lessons and serve as a model for students who struggle with writing.
My goal is to help as many students possible with reading and writing. Also, I'd like to help in other fields such as social studies. Education is an important gift to give the younger generation. Without it they couldn't function well in society or develop a healthy curiosity about the world around them. For nearly 20 years, I've been educating students.

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.
Writing has consumed much of my life. I worked for a short time as a journalist. Currently, I write for several websites and have more than 500 creative and non-creative articles to my credit. As a teacher, I often focus on writing. I realize its importance in a child's education.
I bring to the students something unique. I am a published writer, as well as a special education teacher.
