About Zenobia

I have always loved helping people and I have found tutoring and teaching to be an excellent vehicle to do so. I started tutoring in 2011. I began tutoring k-12 students in the Los Angeles area in the subjects of English and Math. Simultaneously, I began working as a music teacher in a pre-school. This was a fantastic opportunity as it gave me experience working with very young learners while also sharing my passion for music. I knew that I was interested in pursuing a career in teaching. So, to give it a try, I began working as a substitute teacher in schools all around Los Angeles. This really helped to develop my patience. Yet, it also gave me a lot of experience with lesson planning and working with different learning styles.

In 2014 I received to my CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and soon after, I moved to Bali, Indonesia where I taught English as a Second Language (ESL) to students from ages 3 to 35. This was such a wonderful experience for me. Not only was Bali a beautiful and fun place to live, but I learned so much about teaching while working there.
I currently work as a private tutor and an online ESL teacher. I continue to develop my teaching methods with this ongoing experience.

This fall I began graduate school at CSUN. I am studying Music Business while also pursuing a credential in single subject English teaching.

My goals are to make lessons interesting and fun. I want students to care about what they are learning and feel inspired to continue their lessons outside of class settings. I look forward to having you as a student and helping you reach your goals!

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 have been tutoring elementary students since fall of 2011. I have worked as an independent contractor for several academic tutoring agencies that emphasized lessons in English language arts and math. I have also worked as a substitute teacher for LAUSD frequently executing lesson plans and providing assistance in English, math, and science classes. I work best when I can provide one-on-one lessons structured for the student's specific needs. I am very creative and enjoy creating my own lesson plans adapted to the student's requirements. I am also able to utilize technological tools and provide lesson plans consistent with the student's ongoing curriculum.

Phonics

Though I began working as a tutor in 2011, I have been strengthening my skills in teaching phonics since becoming an ESL teacher in 2014. Through my ESL experience and training I have learned many methods of teaching phonics. I have also had to familiarize myself with various phonemes and teach them at various levels from pre-K to adults.

Songwriting

I am a trained musician currently enrolled in a graduate Music Industry program. I have previously studied music at the City University of New York, where I also worked professionally as a singer and songwriter. I have written over 100 songs and I am in the process of starting my own music publishing company. I have taught music to children and adults.

Voice (Music)

I am a trained singer with over 15 years of singing experience. I trained in jazz vocal performance for 2 years at the City University of New York. I have worked with several vocal coaches and I recorded professionally. I have taught singing and music to children and adults.
