About Judy

I have taught preschool through high school in the California public schools as well as doing home tutoring after school. I have a lifetime teaching credential for elementary grades as well as a Special Ed degree which I have used for the past 26 years. Having retired from full-time teaching last year, I discovered that I missed teaching and decided that I would like to continue working as a teacher part time. Tutoring is an excellent way to accomplish this. I enjoy the challenge of helping students learn.

I have used a variety of math problems in my classroom in order for my students to achieve their goals in learning the highest math levels that they were able to accomplish.

I have worked daily with all students to not only speak correctly but to also write with correct grammar and to learn words,with practice, in order for them to read as close to grade level as they were capable. Most students were able to achieve grade-level accomplishments and achieve their high school diplomas.

I listen to students and work with each one to accomplish their academic goals, many times listening to what is troubling them and offering them encouragement for furthering their education and their future. I also point out how they can solve problems on their school work many times.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Common Core

I have taught Common Core subjects for the past several years for the County Office of Education as well as having workshops on the various subjects. This has included teaching in Special Ed classes utilizing the methods shown to us. In writing up students' IEPs, I had to explain how the Common Core methods would be used with each individual student.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary math for 35 years in the California public schools in regular Ed and in special ed classrooms. I have also had several college courses in general math in preparation for my K through 8th grade self contained teaching certificate that I received in 1970. In addition, I have had a few math classes, while I was working on my special Ed degree, that taught us how to work specifically with special Ed students in a classroom setting. At the present I am also teaching math and reading at the local Sylvan Learning Center. (On the English test, the correct answer for number 7 is very, as really is not a correct adverb for the word tired).

English

I have taught English many years in a classroom setting as well as with students in a home tutoring setting after teaching on a classroom during the day.

Grammar

My students have written and spoken correctly during their school years and after school jobs. This knowledge has helped them in securing and keeping jobs for which they applied.

Handwriting

I have taught writing for 35 years in the California public schools in regular Ed and special Ed classes. I have also taught home tutoring students after school during most of that time who needed help with writing skills. This included not only how to write in the right way but also how to spell correctly. Some students did so well that they didn't have to take any remedial writing classes.javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$ApplyBTN2','')

Phonics

I have taught elementary grades in reading and phonics for many years. My students have learned how to write and speak correct English while in my class and continued on to higher grades doing well in their usage of phonics. I have also done home tutoring after school was over, working with students who needed extra help with various school subjects. These students also improved their knowledge and understanding of these topics.

Special Needs

I have a special education degree from California State University San Bernardino in 1995. I have also taught special Ed for 26 years for Riverside County Office of Education. I retired last year from full time teaching and am now working part time as a home tutoring teacher.

Writing

I have worked with many students over the years on writing which has included spelling, punctuation, and correct grammar. My students have become more at ease about writing and getting their points across nicely to the people they have written.
