About Sheila

I am a trained educational specialist with 20+ years' experience in teaching and developing engaging English language learning curriculum for all grades (K-12+). I have designed award winning material for LeapFrog, Gymboree, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, and other highly recognized companies. I have also taught all grade levels at public and private schools, as well as university level courses at U.C.L.A. and U.C. Berkeley.

I am shifting my career into a more flexible freelance path, and I'm looking forward to sharing my experience, creativity, and enthusiasm to develop engaging personalized lessons that can inspire a love of learning for all students.

I have had a life-long passion for learning different languages and enjoy inspiring the same in others. In addition to my experience in E.S.L./E.F.L./E.L.L., I am fluent in Persian (Farsi) and would greatly enjoy teaching this beautiful language and culture to others as well.

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.

Farsi

I have native fluency of the Persian (Farsi) language. I have studied the language and literature at U.C. Berkeley, and have developed custom instructional materials such as flashcards, games, etc. for language learners.
