Bio

Welcome, students and families! I'm new to Wyzant, but I'm an experienced and engaging teacher and tutor.

I graduated from UC Irvine with a B.S. in Chemistry and a Minor in French. I moved to San Diego for grad school, where I earned a M.Ed. in Teaching and Learning with a Math Emphasis from UC San Diego. I have seven years of teaching experience in California public schools, and have been tutoring ever since I became a teacher. The students who I tutor improve their grades and organization...

Welcome, students and families! I'm new to Wyzant, but I'm an experienced and engaging teacher and tutor.

I graduated from UC Irvine with a B.S. in Chemistry and a Minor in French. I moved to San Diego for grad school, where I earned a M.Ed. in Teaching and Learning with a Math Emphasis from UC San Diego. I have seven years of teaching experience in California public schools, and have been tutoring ever since I became a teacher. The students who I tutor improve their grades and organization AND grow in motivation and confidence, which I find very rewarding. Many of them work with me for years - I enjoy building strong relationships to help my students grow.

Learning should be active and engaging! I am passionate about helping my students become critical thinkers who think flexibly and who persevere to solve problems. I love showing my students the joy in learning.

Math is my favorite subject to teach. I have a Math Credential and I've taught math for seven years. I really love Algebra! I tutor students in grades 3 - 10 math. I use lots of visuals and reasoning skills to support our math work.

I have a deep love of science and a Chemistry Credential. I was fortunate to have several Biology and Chemistry professors in college who made the subject material come to life - they were engaging and approachable, and they inspired me to pursue a career in education. I love tutoring Chemistry - bring on the dimensional analysis!

I love helping children become strong readers who think while they read. I have a lot of experience teaching reading - from emergent readers and English learners learning phonics, to intermediate readers building their fluency and comprehension skills, to more advanced readers who are ready to analyze all types of text. I love showing them the joy in reading.

Ready to schedule a lesson? Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I'd love to help your student grow and become a confident learner!

I earned my M.Ed. and teaching credentials after Common Core had been implemented - it's all I know! Though it's very different from the way we adults were taught, it's all about flexible and creative thinking, clear communication, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. It's so beneficial for children to develop these skills. I have taught grades 1 through 7, and I enjoy incorporating these skills into all subjects.
