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 am a fully qualified, California credentialed multiple subject teacher. As a multiple subject teacher, I had to pass numerous tests for the State of California measuring my knowledge for all subjects of study from kindergarten through 8th grade. I have taught 6th and 8th grade and am currently a 5th grade teacher.

As a student teacher during my credentialing classes, I was in a 4th grade and 1st grade classroom. Although each grade-level is unique, the curriculum is very familiar to me and I am completely qualified to help students of all grade levels kindergarten through 8th.

English

I am a fully-certified, highly-qualified California teacher. I have extensive knowledge in English/Language Arts and English language development.

Psychology

In June of 2005, I received a BA in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles. This is a very competitive major at UCLA. I was also a member of two very unique studies led by some amazing professors at the university in the field of educational psychology and social psychology, where I learned some very good information on how the application of psychological studies take place.

Reading

I am a fully-credentialed, highly qualified teacher. In order to meet this qualification, I had to take numerous classes covering a multitude of subjects, including reading. I also had to pass an exam that covered reading assessment and learning, called the RICA.

Study Skills

I have received many different types of Study Skills coursework throughout my teacher credentialing. From providing organization skills to homework help techniques, I have the ability to show students how to best get themselves set to learn and how to be more prepared for classes.

I have received AVID training, which preached organization and study skills up and down and I am set to attend another week's worth of AVID training this summer. These classes will provide me with more tools to teach Study Skills.
