About Monica


Bio

I thrive on helping kids achieve. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English and I have a California Secondary Teaching Credential. I find that the most effective way to teach is to establish a relationship with the student, have fun, and then explore. I am familiar with Blooms Taxonomy and the different learning styles so I tailor my session to each individual student. Research tells us that most people can study efficiently for 20 minutes, so I break up the session into different activities,...

I thrive on helping kids achieve. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English and I have a California Secondary Teaching Credential. I find that the most effective way to teach is to establish a relationship with the student, have fun, and then explore. I am familiar with Blooms Taxonomy and the different learning styles so I tailor my session to each individual student. Research tells us that most people can study efficiently for 20 minutes, so I break up the session into different activities, including art, music, even physical movement in order to stimulate both sides of the brain! Prior to each session, I create Power Points because I can infuse any topic with lots of interesting research, pictures, sounds, and mnemonic devices. For reinforcement and retention, I use Quizlet because it's fun and it works.

After 36 years of meeting new students, attending workshops, experiencing successes, and learning from my mistakes, teaching has become second nature. I'm retired, but I can't quit. I'm always learning and I find that my enthusiasm is contagious. The skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking are fundamental for success in any career. I have taken extensive courses in Reading Development; I use multiple graphic organizers for prewriting and Purdue Owl: MLA & APA Formatting Style Guides; I was a speech coach for 4 years and I am an experienced ESL teacher. For the past year, I've been tutoring high school Chinese exchange students ... I surely didn't see that coming! I'm a different kind of teacher -- I don't lecture -- I wonder and discover.
