I am a California certified teacher and educator. I hold a valid Single Subject Teaching credential in English and Social Science for grades 7-12. This includes English Language Arts of all kinds, History, Civics, Economics and Psychology. I also hold a valid California Multi-subject credential to teach grades K-8 so I am versed in all elementary subjects. My specialties include, but are not limited to, English Language Arts, Reading, Comprehension, Writing, Literature, Spelling, Grammar and Vocabulary. My abilities are strong in tutoring all academic subjects in high stake exams such as SAT English, CASHEE English, ACT, Subject Tests and AP courses. I passed the RICA Exam (Reading Instruction Comprehension Assessment) given by the state of California, so I am aware of strategies to teach all the facets of the English language. For each student I tutor, I devise a lesson plan specially designed for mastery and success of the subject matter. At the end of each tutoring session I send a progress report to the student and their parents via email. I work on long and short term academic solutions with regards to curriculum and I work closely with other teachers. My teaching philosophy is that every student can achieve and succeed with the proper tools. I learn about my students so that I can help them learn in their own personal learning styles. I love what I do.
Great and effective tutor
Eileen was able to come to my rescue with only one week left for me to study for the GRE. She had a flexible schedule and worked around mine very willingly. I only had time for a one hour tutor session, and yet she helped my score get higher than I actually thought possible! She had many useful tricks for me, and more test taking skills than I had expected. I would recommend her any day. Really great with essay writing especially.Rachel, 1 lesson with Eileen

Our first meeting with Eileen was great. She worked with the kids and explained to us what her strategy would be if she were to tutor my kids. She went over details, patiently listened to our concerns, gave positive encouragement to the kids, laid out her plan & explained it very methodically.DMV, 1 lesson with Eileen
