About Remi

I love people and consider it my mission to make a difference in people's lives by doing what I do best... teach! I have taught public school, private school, home school groups, and students with special needs. I have taught every grade AND every subject from algebra to journalism. I have written most of a book on teaching early reading, and have become expertly proficient in all areas of teaching writing and grammar. Language (both English and foreign languages) and biology are most exciting to me, and so I make those subjects exciting for my students! Everyone can learn, and if you or your student have never been able to figure it out before, we will keep trying new angles until we figure out which one fits you! The *aha* moment of having something click is immeasurably rewarding for both this teacher and her students. Mastering new skills is knowledge, power, and FUN; no one ever can take that away.

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.

ACT Reading

Reading and literature are two of my areas of passion and greatest expertise; I even wrote a manual on early literacy. I also edit professionally, hold a lifetime credential for secondary-level English, and have been teaching language and writing for 30 years; I would love to help make your essays shine! I love to teach, and I break down information in a variety of methods; you will understand everything you need to know with confidence by the time we are finished. :)

Algebra 1

I love working with middle school-aged children, and am currently teaching multiple subjects to this age group. I have several personally-developed methods for successfully teaching elementary reading and mathematics. I have 30 years' experience in teaching language skills, reading, spelling, math, and science.

American History

History is such an intriguing subject. With my gifts for voice-overs and acting, I make my students as excited as I am to learn about the adventures of the past that connects us all!

ASVAB

I have several personally-developed methods for successfully teaching reading, writing, and math. Algebra and word problems-- most seen on standardized testing-- is especially fun; everything fits together as one big puzzle. I love tutoring; anything is easy if you take it one small step at a time. Once the AHA light comes on, it's yours forever! The rest of life is cake.

Bible Studies

I have taken Old and New Testament courses in both high school and at the university level, and passed them with mastery. My Master's degree from a conservative Christian seminary includes studies in the religions of the world, and of Christianity in American history. I have read and studied the Bible for 43 years, and have enjoyed teaching Bible content and interpretation to elementary, high school, and adult classes.

Biology

I aced pre-med biology in college, and have tutored or taught biology and biology labs several times since. All aspects of biology are fascinating and fun; we'll break down each part on which you are working, and make it stick!

Elementary Math

Personal philosophy:

Success in elementary math is assured when students have a solid foundation in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. I make sure that these basic skills are mastered, and then build on them to more complex concepts. One careful step at a time, students proceed with ease to attain lifetime confidence in the field of mathematics.

French

I am a certified secondary instructor of English and French with 30 years' experience teaching language to high school and elementary students.
I have created and taught French curricula for all elementary grades, and implemented my creative learning methods for a local Christian school and the Camarillo Park and Recreation system.

GED

The writing and mathematics requirements for general testing can seem daunting at first. With a little guidance and consistent practice, however, success is guaranteed. Having a great essay always pays off in big rewards, in college and for the rest of your life. I have tutored study skills since my junior year of college, and have helped people to succeed for 30 years.

Grammar

I edit professionally, hold a lifetime credential for secondary-level English, and have been teaching language and writing for 30 years. I would love to help make your essays shine! In addition, I have mastered the art of teaching and breaking down information in a variety of methods; you will understand everything you need to know with confidence by the time we are finished!

Phonics

I wrote a manual for teaching early reading. With the same methods with which I was taught, I taught all of my children to read by the age of two years old. My first degree is in English, and I have spent several years teaching phonics for early reading and writing. Drawing on several years' experience in learning methods, psychology, and years of participation in local, state, and national bees, I tutored a spelling bee club for the last two years.

Physical Science

Three years of my undergraduate study focused upon biomedical studies, physics, and chemistry. I enjoy teaching labs for physical science, biology, and anatomy. I will formulate study cards, manipulative materials, and whatever it takes for your student to be comfortable and even excited about science.

Psychology

I am currently completing a doctorate in clinical psychology, so the subject matter is fresh, as is my knowledge of how to compose papers and other assignments in APA format. Best of all, I have mastered the art of teaching and breaking down information in a variety of methods; you will understand everything you need to know with confidence by the time we are finished!

Furthermore, I edit professionally, hold a lifetime credential for secondary-level English, and have been teaching language and writing for 30 years. I would love to help make your essays shine!

Reading

This is my cup of tea! I wrote a manual on teaching early reading, and have given several workshops on how to implement my methods. I have a lifetime credential for teaching English, and 30 years' teaching experience.

Religion

I have taken Old and New Testament courses in both high school and at the university level, and passed them with mastery. My seminarial Master's degree includes studies in the religions of the world, and of Christianity in American history.

SAT Math

SAT Writing and Math can seem daunting at first. With a little guidance and consistent practice, however, success is guaranteed.

Having a great essay always pays off in big rewards, in college and in the rest of your life. I have tutored study skills since my junior year of college, and have helped people to succeed for 30 years.

Social Studies

I have taught Social Studies as senior-level high school American Government, secondary-level Economics, American History, and U.S. Government. I teach history with all the interesting details that cause it to stick, and I make my students as passionate as I about the ethos and pathos of our common history. I am well read and never cease to be interested, reading, and learning myself; the enthusiasm of my need to share what I know and care about is ignited in my students, as a result. Teaching history and government is a perfect channel for my dramatic talents of music, song, dance, acting, recitation, and dramatic composition, all of which reinforce facts in the memory of my students in an indelible fashion.

Spelling

Language skills can seem daunting at first. With a little guidance and consistent practice, however, success is guaranteed. After years of competition in local, regional, state, and national spelling bees, I have tutored strategy for spelling bees for many years in several school groups, and have helped people to succeed for 30 years.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills professionally to college students. Additionally, I have 30 years experience tutoring elementary and secondary-level students in several different areas, including the development of excellent study skills. I welcome opportunities to assist in the rewarding task of empowering students for success.
