About Judith

I am a retired teacher with over 30 years' teaching experience. I have taught all ages and grades from preschool to community college. I now substitute to make money to make my expenses and adding tutoring would also help.

I have a BA from CSU, Freno in child development, a master's from CSU, Frenso in counseling, and a Ph.D from Capella University. I hold two life teaching credentials.

My main strengths in subject matter is US History, constitution, reading, language arts and writing. I am also a Toastmaster at the bronze level and can tutor in speech formats and writing speeches.

I like to tutor because it is one-on-one and I can see the growth of a student. My favorite thing is to see the " light bulb" turn on when a student finally understands a concept.

I have always been a writer and good in the subject. Working with grammar I know can be boring, but with new approaches it can be easier. Literature has always been a strong point for me. I am well read and have not only read most of the classics, but know modern literature. When understanding literature taking it apart and understanding symbolism is key. Along with this is vocabulary . Understanding the foundation and roots of words helps. I have taught this for 30'years and been involved public speaking since 1982.

For some reason, I have always understood and love history. History is understanding who we are and how things are connected. I am not the type teacher who has you memorize dates instead you will learn how history is interconnected and why. I have been teaching history 25 years. At one point my 8th grade history classes were 90% in state standards scores.

I encourage you contact me and learn more how I might be able to help you. If you feel that I can help we will schedule a meeting in person or online.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Ryan Multi K-12 California teaching credential and have been teaching full time for 30 years. I have taught grades 4, 5, 6, 8 and filled other adjunct positions for my school district. I was an summer administrator for a pre K class and also was the mentor teacher for the district.
My degrees in child development, school counseling, and adult education gives me extensive studies in learning styles and theory. Since retirement from full time teaching I have been subbing in all grades.

Public Speaking

I am a member of International Toastmasters and have completed 30 speeches to reach the level of Bronze Toastmaster. My experience in education also provides me with unique experience in teaching people of all levels and learning styles using my ability in public speaking . Even at the young age of 11 years old I was involved in public speaking. It is a natural talent that I have used and perfected through the years.

Social Studies

I have taught history and social studies for 30 years. Teaching these subjects is something I love to do. I read constantly in both areas as well as travel to experience the cultures, art, and societies I have studied.

I have lived in Germany and been to 16 different countries. Social studies is a combination of the study of people and places. Having gone to many places I can add a dimension to the subject that few people can accomplish.

World History

I have taught history for 30+ years and history is an advocation for me. I have travelled to 16 countries and lived in Germany. I look at history as a series of connections between countries, people, and events. World history is connected through cultural values, national events, international events, trade relations, and alliances.
