Hello Scholars,

My name is Virginia and I would like to meet you! I am a former 5th grade teacher and have been a favorite and requested substitute in TK-5 for 25 years. I earned my California Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential in 1985 at CSULB, which means I can guide you to proficiency and success in all your core subjects. I excel in tutoring reading and phonics, as I had training in the Reading First Program, and served as an intervention teacher, helping 5th graders to be promoted (not retained) to middle school. With tutoring come compassion and passion. Writing is one of mine (I've had several pieces published) and would be committed to sharing my love for literature and the written word. With knowledge and experience, I am familiar with the elementary curriculum and will individualize our lessons to meet your needs- at your speed.

My personal approach to tutoring depends on each student.

Naturally, and as the mother of a special needs child, I am patient. Our initial meeting would consist of assessing reading (comprehension, phonics and fluency) and age/grade level math and writing skills. I would keep a running record of lessons covered (noting areas of mastery and/or difficulty) and openly communicate with your parents or guardians. If possible, the ideal learning environment would be at a table or desk, with good lighting and little, if any distractions. I enjoy and sense satisfaction when a child shines proudly when they acknowledge improvement, while striving for their goals. I have seen many realize their potential for growth and become excited for education!

Please contact me any time for a complimentary assessment. My schedule is flexible to fit the needs of your family. I look forward to hearing from you!
