I have had a life long love of teaching for over 30 years. My experience extends from teaching English as a foreign language overseas in Tunisia and Cameroon for 3 years to 3rd-8th Grade Teacher for 24 years in California public schools. Subjects taught include reading, writing, math, social studies and science.
My tutoring experience includes tutoring adults in reading and writing at the Merced County Library for 3 years, tutoring one on one with students in grades 4-8 for 8 months and tutoring English and math in small groups of students
for one year.
I earned my Language Development Specialist certificate to augment my English language teaching abilities in 1998.
This has enabled me to offer a more unique and specialized curriculum tailored to each student's particular academic needs.

I have specific experience as a TOEFL Teacher for 3 years and 8 years as an ESL teacher. I have 24 years teaching literature, vocabulary and writing.

It is my goal to challenge, yet not overwhelm, each student to stay interested and ready to learn by presenting information/knowledge in a variety of instructional materials and formats.
I invite you to contact me for any questions you may have and look forward to hearing from you to help you achieve success in your studies.
