About ANNE

I am an experienced teacher and tutor with three credentials. Two of my credentials are for adult school and one is for community college. One of my adult school credentials is multi-subject and the other is a vocational credential for the handicapped. I went through a pre-internship credential program for a Resource Specialist Credential. I passed the CBEST exam in 1983 and the Multiple-subject CSET exams in 2009. I am certified in Barton Reading Program, which employs the Orton Gillingham method. I have had security clearances for my credentials recorded in Alameda County Office of Education, and for In Home Health Services of Alameda County.
I have taught students from preschool to adult school, including students with special needs. I have taught in public schools and in private institutions. The subjects I have taught include high school subjects, functional academics, life skills, art and parent education. I am substituting in K-12 and teaching ESL currently.
I worked with a seventh grade Resource Student last school year using the Orton Gillingham method. He received the award for "The Most Improved Student of the Year." I am consistent, dependable and committed to helping students achieve their best and build self-confidence.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I've had experience teaching students identified as ADD/ADHD in both academic and vocational settings. I have had extensive inservice training to work with students with developmental and emotional disabilities, and I have completed a pre-internship program for my fourth credential as a resource specialist. I have a vocational credential for the handicapped and a multi-subject adult education credential.

Dyslexia

I was trained in the Barton tutoring program for people with dyslexia and related reading difficulties. It employs the Orton-Gillingham research and teaching methods. I successfully tutored a seventh grade student at a middle school last year. He won the award for 'the most improved student of the year.' He got A's on all the exams I prepared him for in his language arts class that used the Orton Gillingham method. On the last few tests he scored 100%! I have all six sets of lessons from the Barton tutoring program.

Elementary (K-6th)

My multi-subject credential includes basic education. I have substituted in K-12 since 2007, including a long term assignment in a fifth grade class. I have passed the CBET and multi-subject CSET test.

Elementary Science

I have three credentials. One is for special education. I have a lot of experience and training in learning disabilities. I am good at helping kids direct their energy.

English

I have taught ESL at all levels both in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Barcelona. I have also taught high school English and tutored college level English composition. I have three credentials.

ESL/ESOL

I earned my teaching credentials and a degree in TESL at U.C. Berkeley. I have taught all ages, but most of my ESL experience has been with adults. I tutored ESL students while I was in college and when I was teaching in Barcelona. I actually work harder preparing lessons for tutoring English than for teaching English in order to design lessons that meet the individual needs of the student.

Reading

I have three credentials covering basic education and other subjects. I have passed the CBET and Multisubject CSET tests for K-12. I have a lot of experience teaching children the age of your two kids.I also have specialized in reading. I have been trained in the Barton Reading Program.

Study Skills

I have years of teaching study skills and test taking skills as a teacher and as a tutor. As a teacher, most of my need to teach study skills was teaching high school subjects in an Adult Education program. As a tutor, the greatest need to teach study skills has been tutoring special needs students in K-12. I am interested in all the new research on how the brain works, in particular how memory is stored and how recall works. I apply this to teaching.
