About Andrea

I have 20 years of classroom experience teaching 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. Through collaboration across grade levels, assisting my own child, and tutoring, I'm familiar with the curriculum standards spanning the elementary grades as well. I have expertise in teaching writing strategies, reading comprehension and grammar. I am also familiar with Common Core so I am able to supplement or review content and/or skills that were presented in the classroom.

Throughout my teaching career, I've had the opportunity to work with a myriad of students with differing abilities, learning styles, and needs. It is my belief that each child should be given the opportunity to reach their truest potential and that it is possible for him/her to do so with proper instruction and guidance. I'm experienced working with students identified as RSP, GATE, ESL, ADHD and autistic. I hold very high standards, yet differentiate instruction and modify lessons when needed, so that students feel supported and are able to experience success. For me as a teacher, there is no other feeling like seeing a discouraged, frustrated student gain confidence in their own academic abilities.

I have a strong command of the English language, emphasizing the importance of effective writing using appropriate word choice and grammar.

I have a love of history and can make, what some consider a boring subject, interesting and come alive!

I am eager and available to help students with study skills, homework, projects, essays, and basic skills. My hours are flexible. Please contact me to schedule an in person or on-line meeting.

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 hold a valid California state Multiple Subject teaching credential. I passed the CBEST test with above average scores in reading, math and writing. I have 20 years teaching 6th grade and many years experience tutoring students ranging from 2nd-5th grade.

Study Skills

Learning appropriate and effective study skills was a regular part of my classroom teaching. I always began with organizational and time management techniques. With each subject matter, I taught active reading skills and other techniques for reading expository text. I taught note-taking methods using outlining and Cornell notes. I also used flashcards, games, and different types of "foldables" to summarize and review content material.
