About Lena

I have a degree in Biological Sciences from University of La Verne. I have almost twenty years of teaching experience. My career has ranged from teaching kindergarten through high school Biology. In the most recent school year, I served as the Science Department Chairperson and taught 4th through 8th grade science classes as well as 7th grade social studies. Throughout my teaching career I have moved from being an administrator to volleyball coach. I love to teach math and science and I am also very good at spelling and vocabulary. I have a creative passion for all types of science and my passion is contagious to my students. I know just how challenging math and science can be for some students and that not all students learn the same way. Some students are auditory learners while others may process material better when it is presented as a hands-on project. Not all students are the same. Each child deserves to have a teacher who can serve to encourage them in the individual mode that each may require. The one thing I'd like to help you do is overcome the uncomfortable feeling we might get when we encounter something that seems too difficult.

I have mastered techniques throughout my teaching career which aide in student success. . Tutoring can serve you in having one to one personalized instruction during a time when you can feel free to ask and re-ask questions and get the answers! I can help you reach your personal best and I look forward to meeting you.

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)

My expertise in the middle school subjects is inclusive of the k-6 years. I am well versed in the elementary needs that lead to success in junior high school. I have been a teacher for almost twenty years. Throughout my career I have spent countless hours with children of all ages. I have three sons of my own and that has taught me many valuable lessons. I enjoy teaching at the elementary levels and have a unique passion for it. My students are unique and my approach must be as unique and individualized as each child.

Great teacher!

She knew I was homeschooling my son so she came prepared with a curriculum and was open to suggestions on how we can proceed with his academics. She also understands autistic kids, which made her a great fit. I highly recommend her.
