About Anuradha

Excited about working with middle and high school students and passionate about teaching, I have taught social studies, English, English-as-a-Second Language, and standardized test preparation (CBEST, ACT, SAT, AP). I teach students research-based strategies to enable them to comprehend and analyze informational text effectively. Teaching essay writing: argument (persuasive), expository, and literary analysis, is my specialty.

Social studies subjects taught include geography and regular and AP history courses. Also, I have taught English at different levels: ESL, remedial, regular, and honors.

My qualifications include a teaching credential in social studies and English with CLAD (i.e., a focus on teaching English language learners), a master's degree in history, and eleven years' teaching experience in public and parochial schools and tutoring centers. I truly enjoy tutoring and look forward to working with you/your student.

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.

American History

My focus in my master's degree is U. S. history. A letter of recommendation from my graduate advisor also attests to my skills in analytic writing.

Anthropology

I have a master's degree in history, and my undergraduate work includes two upper-division courses in anthropology. With a teaching credential in social studies, I have taught middle and high school for 9 years. I teach students to "talk to the text" to make meaning of sophisticated texts, and to use metacognition to maintain awareness of their comprehension.

CBEST

I passed the CBEST, earned my single teaching credential in English and social studies, and have nine years' teaching experience. In the course of tutoring for other companies, I taught the timed SAT essay. Finally, having taught SAT-level math, I am well able to tutor CBEST-level math.

English

I have taught English in middle and high schools and am familiar with the California Common Core State Standards.

Music History

Not only do I have a master's degree in history, but I am also knowledgeable about classical music and jazz. Having played piano and sung in choirs, I am able to describe and discuss music using the common vocabulary. Finally, I have a teaching credential and can use a variety of strategies to assist students in understanding sophisticated text.

Praxis

I met the California Single Subject Teaching Credential subject matter competency requirements in social studies and English by passing the Praxis. Having earned my master's degree in history, I have a solid background in this content area. I am confident I can assist students in preparing for the current CSET exam.

Social Studies

My master's degree in history and a single subject teaching credential in social studies and English with CLAD shows my academic and pedagogical preparation. I have six years teaching social studies in middle and high school and one year teaching and tutoring in a learning center. My approach in tutoring lessons is to find out the student's background and from there, "scaffold" the concepts so that s/he understands what s/he needs to know.

World History

I received my M.A. in History from San Jose State University, and my A.B. in Ethnic Studies from U. C. Berkeley. I have my Single Subject Teaching Credential in social studies and English.

Exceptional!

Anuradha tutored my 11th grade daughter in U.S. History, a subject my daughter finds uninteresting. Anuradha is wonderful! Very clear, patient, taught so my daughter could understand easily. Her teaching experience is evident - she's not just someone who enjoys history, but an excellent teacher. We have extremely high standards and my daughter said she is the best tutor she has every worked with
