Hello, I am passionate about teaching. As a credentialed teacher, I taught ten years in the public schools, two years in private schools, substitute taught, private tutored, private homeschooled for several families, taught several years of group homeschooling classes, as well as edited and wrote teacher's materials for the company, Teacher Created Materials. Currently I homeschool my teen aged daughter and tutor a couple of students.
I am very creative and hard working and my tutoring lessons reflect this. I create motivating and well researched lessons to help your child improve and learn at a fast rate. I am kind, very child-oriented, and give praise, but require my students to stay on task.
My experience in private schools where the students were very advanced, convinced me of the need for students to have a strong phonics background to assist in decoding, in acquiring confident reading abilities and in spelling skills. I am an expert in teaching these areas as well as in teaching reading comprehension.
My passion for teaching is what makes me an outstanding teacher and tutor. My full years of experience with teaching and tutoring amount to almost 30 years. I love children and cannot stop teaching. It is exciting and I devote hours of my time preparing for great lessons with exciting ways to learn the subject matter in all subjects, including mathematics.
Years ago I developed my own phonics, spelling, writing and reading book based entirely on phonics, which I taught my inner-city second graders. They advanced from a K.5 level to a 4th-5th grade level in one year based on this intense program. I have used the same book on my own children and on various other students pulling them up to very high academic reading, spelling and writing levels.
I am looking to tutor and or homeschool a few more students in my Alta Loma home where it is quiet and I have dozens of resources from my years of public school teaching. I prefer not to travel, as I do homeschool my own daughter and do not wish to leave her alone. She does work independently at another section of the house while I am tutoring.

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.
I have a California Professional Clear Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I have taken my 5th year of college studying elementary education. I have taught almost 30 years in the area of elementary education.
