About Stephanie

Hello! My name is Stephanie. I love teaching and especially working with individual students to help them become more proficient. I also have experience with SAT and ACT test preparation.

I have taught and tutored students at all grade levels for over 20 years. I have worked in Loomis, Roseville, and San Juan district schools as well as with charter schools and home-schoolers, so I am comfortable with a variety of approaches to education. I tailor my teaching to the individual needs of each of my students.

I am credentialed in English and German and have a music background, as well--I accompanied high school choirs for over 10 years. I have also taught piano and coached singers. Currently, I am directing a choir for grades 7-12.

One of my hobbies is knitting. It is a wonderful artistic skill that is relaxing and rewarding. I am also a marathon runner. I love traveling and studying languages--in addition to growing up bilingual in English and German, I have studied Russian, French, and Latin.

I am convinced that every student can be successful and am excited about helping you to accomplish your goals.

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.


I passed the CBEST and have since earned my teaching credential in English and German. I have both taught and tutored students in language arts and am also able to tutor the math skills covered on the CBEST. I am currently tutoring or teaching students for SAT and ACT preparation. Along with knowing the material, I am also able to teach good test-taking strategies, which are an important part of successful testing.

Elementary (K-6th)

I tutored elementary students and volunteered in elementary school classes for 10 years. I have a single subject credential in English.

General Music

I have a minor in music, taught piano for 10 years, have worked as an accompanist in various settings for more than 20 years, and currently direct a youth choir.


I have been knitting for more than 10 years and have been selling my items for 5 years. In that time I have taught several other people how to knit, as well. During the current school year, I have taught a knitting class to 4 students, ages 7-11. They have each completed two projects so far. Teaching knitting requires a great deal of patience, as well as the ability to provide encouragement and help students stay motivated as they learn a new skill.


I have a major in English. I taught all four of my children to read using phonics, and volunteered in elementary school for 6 years helping children learn to read with phonics. I love teaching phonics and decoding skills to help students master the skill of reading--it is absolutely vital for reading success.


I taught private piano lessons for 10 years. I have a minor in music and have worked as a high school choir accompanist for 15 years. I also have accompanied for voice students and theatrical productions for more than 20 years.

Sight Singing

I have sung in choirs for 30 years, taught piano, and accompanied voice students and choirs. I also taught piano lessons for 10 years. Sight reading is my strength and one of my favorite areas of musical training.


I directed middle school musicals for 10 years and have accompanied for numerous theatrical productions. I have also performed in productions. My teaching credential in English also includes drama.
