Hello everyone. I have been teaching in southern and northern California for 19 years. Five years ago I landed in the Calistoga Joint Unified School District. During my time in the Napa Valley, I have taught 3rd - 12th grade math and PE classes. Helping students master their times tables and algebra is my specialty. I also love helping students with fitness plans or athletic training (especially running and basketball).
For over 12 years I have been an athletic director, coach and teacher. I truly get to know my students so that I can help them with their learning. Finding a student's motivation is half the battle. As a teacher, I have assisted hundreds of students master their subject and find continued success as they move up the educational ladder. There is nothing better than the look in the eye of a student who finally "gets it."
My ability to connect with students is my strength. There are many ways to solve math problems and often a student just needs to see multiple ways to attack the problems. Each student is unique and finding their comfort zone is just as important as the math itself. Confidence and determination need to be instilled to insure success.
I currently teach 3rd - 6th grade PE and love the inquisitive nature of my students. Every student wants to be valued and know that they are capable of achieving. Younger students often struggle with math basics and can easily get back on the right path with a bit of encouragement.
I am excited to put my skills to work for you. I am also very familiar with online courses and the shift to common core mathematics in our public school system. Please contact me so that we can get started.

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 have been a teacher for 19 years and successfully passed the CBEST test to get my credential.
I have a professional clear credential and a math supplemental authorization that allows me to teach math in the state of California. I am currently teaching PE at Calistoga Elementary School. I frequently assist my students with their math problems. I have coached, organized and directed several youth teams since the age of 16 (28 years).
