Hello my name is Cassandra, and I have been a high school English teacher in the Los Angeles area for ten years. I am fully credentialed by the State of California and always continue to pursue professional development opportunities to maximize my teaching effectiveness. I earned my PhD at Claremont Graduate University and have extensive expertise teaching, mentoring, and coaching other teachers. I have also taught the English CSET subtests 1-4 to aspiring English teachers for over 6 years! I have extensive tutoring experience (10+ years) at the high school and university level, and I am able to tutor in various areas for various ages. I LOVE to teach, tutor, and share knowledge with students, colleagues, and peers. I take my education very seriously and treat it as gift. I am very friendly, outgoing, and very supportive of my students. I am able to adapt curriculum to fit students' needs using various teaching strategies so the concepts stick and are not just memorized! I also have experience teaching EL students and younger students as well (middle school) and students with IEP's and special needs such as ADD, ADHD, hearing disabilities, and speech impediments. Encouraging and motivating students is something that I consider absolutely essential to their success, so I always focus on their strengths to tackle their challenges. I am responsible, committed, and professional. If you are interested, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you!

In recent years during my student teaching at the University of Southern California, I have assisted and supported many Spanish speaking English language learners develop language, writing, and reading skills. I practice modeling the English language and I have taken extensive course work in bilingual education at the University of Southern California and will continue to do so during my PhD coursework. I use differentiated instruction such as visual, audio, and kinesthetic aids to support English anugage Learner's devleop confidence in the English Language. At USC I also earned my CLAD (crosscultural language and academic development certificate)and I am able to employ many SDAIE strategies for ALL learners including standard English Learners (Specifically Designed Academic Instruction in English). I am supportive and very patient with ESL students and I enjoy working with them.

I have had years of experience teaching English to all students and some students with speech impediments and special learning needs. I focus on enunciation, inflection, and articulation in all my English classes where I have students model, repeat, and practice verbal skills and speaking skills. As an undergraduate at UC Riverside, I also assisted various international students pronounce words, practice reading, and practice speaking while they were writing their papers for various classes. I am an excellent communicator and I am also bilingual(conversational) so I have supported many English Language Learners with various ways to translate English to Spanish and Spanish to English to assist their language development.

I have been a California Credentialed English Teacher for 2 years. I have also been an undergraduate tutor at UC Riverside in which I assisted struggling students with study skills, time management strategies, and effective study tips (developing a study day to day calendar, flashcards, audio, kinesthetic, and visual ways to remember material). I also provide my students with study tips daily by assigning them various practice exercises (outlines, flashcards, effective note taking, brainstorming) and using various graphic organizers to help various students with different learning modalities.
