Bio

I am passionate about helping students to be successful. I truly believe that all students have the ability to excel in their studies and I know that with the right tools, motivation and support any student can increase his academic performance.
I have over 30 years of educational experience working both in the classroom, in a Reading lab and individually with students for both reinforcement and skill enrichment.

I am passionate about helping students to be successful. I truly believe that all students have the ability to excel in their studies and I know that with the right tools, motivation and support any student can increase his academic performance.
I have over 30 years of educational experience working both in the classroom, in a Reading lab and individually with students for both reinforcement and skill enrichment.

Getting to know a student's needs, interests and what motivates him is what makes tutoring so fulfilling. I love finding what motivates each learner and using that to drive our sessions together. Seeing the growth and watching a student's excitement as he realizes that he is able to easily do something today that was a challenge or struggle yesterday is what makes my day!

I have a Masters in Education with a specialization in Reading as well as a Reading Specialist Credential. I worked in a bilingual setting teaching both Spanish language and ESL for 10 years. I have developed curriculum in both English, Spanish and ESL. I have done teacher training in intervention and English language teaching and have tutored Reading and Vocabulary for preschool through High School.

My major in Spanish and Linguistics along with my Bilingual Teaching Credential gives me the skills to teach Spanish language and writing. I taught at the highest elementary levels of Spanish Reading and can work at any level.

I am motivating, fun and have a track record of success in helping students accomplish their goals! Contact me so we can see how I can help you as well!
