Back to School and off to a great start!

First trimester is completed and conference with the teacher held one or more words: more focus, a better listener, not completing class work, homework troubles, or difficult time taking tests. Perhaps even you stating your child needs more of a challenge. i am here to help in any situation. I can focus on Language arts, math and common core projects giving your child space to learn. I can prep for math for the year ahead or work in some areas that were challenging. I have lots of supplies so I can provide all the learning essentials. I would love to have the opportunity to work with your family to assist in keeping your child on the right track, reinforcing specific skills, building confidence and keeping your child an active and attentive learner. Give your child a boost in academics and confidence for the coming year!
I am sure you have seen your child when he/she is learning something new and they look up at you and in an excited way say, "I've got it!" That is why I teach. Those moments happen once for each tiny step that they take, and there isn't anything that can change that moment and their excitement when they get it. Let's keep that going and keep them excited about learning!
I am currently a first grade teacher and have taught multiple grade levels (K, 1, 2, 3, and gifted education 4-6). I currently have my CLAD certificate and have been working with second language children for all 22 years of my career. I have also worked with children with special needs with different ranges of autism and other needs. I have received a certificate in Gifted Education. I have taken over 6 specified courses within the Common Core Curriculum. I also teach strategies on mindful learning, and opportunities to work in their own creative space. Those "I've got it" moments are precious! Then when your child gets stuck or is having a difficult time understanding something, we want to help--we don't want them to struggle. Somehow the evening comes to an end with a child in tears and a parent saying I don't know why you just don't get started and finish up so you can go play. So I am here to help your family make those evenings a little more peaceful. I would love to work with your family and see those happy faces when they finally say, "I've got it!"
Fall to December sessions have begun and there is still time to get your child started to ensure academic success this year. You will also receive a written lesson of what we covered and learned. There will always be a 5 minute review of what we covered from the prior session and new material and an end review of what we covered in current session.
**I will be available between the hours of 4:00PM- 8:00PM. with staggered hours.
**No sessions on Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas.
Times will be in one hour blocks and will take place Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
**Sessions are held at Martha Riley Library in Roseville & Starbucks within surrounding Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Antelope and Sacramento areas***
**Have more than one child- or a friend that would benefit from sessions- You each would receive $10.00 off your first session. ($40 an hour becomes $30 an hour for first session for each of you).
**Last summer I did a reading book group of 3-4 students in a group. If I have enough response, I would be happy to do another book group. Inquire and we may just need another person to make a group! It was great fun! Focus was on: Vocabulary, Reading, Reading comprehension, and writing all in an hour! I purchase the books and then your child keeps the book for a summer memory!
Let's have a great summer!!
No scheduled sessions on Fridays! Thank you!
Thank you for your time and I look forward to working with your family!
Let's help your child blossom and shine!

We have been working with Petrina for about a month now. She is very patient and my daughter loves her tutoring sessions. Petrina makes each session fun while covering the material planned. I really appreciate the lesson plans and the detailed summary of each session.Joanna, 73 lessons with PetrinaTutor responded:
Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to work with your daughter and your family. She is a hard worker and really enjoys learning. She is an active learner and loves to play games. Thank you for the comments about the lesson plan write ups. My goal is to provide you with information that we have covered and information that will show academic growth. It is also information that you can share with her teachers also. Thank you so much! It is a pleasure working with your family!
Great tutor! Very patient and kind with children.
Petrina is a great tutor! I have waited so long to write a review about her because I knew that I have so much to say about her. My daughter qualified for the gifted program and needed academic support, she helped her to understand better the subjects, she is always very kind and patient, brings all her school materials with her and is always prepared to give the class. She is wonderful with kids, and at the end of each class gives you a report of what has been taught. She is very helpful and understanding. She is a great teacher, I highly recommend her!Wendy, 1 lesson with PetrinaTutor responded:
Thank you so much Wendy for allowing me the opportunity to work with your daughter. She is a wonderful little girl who strives to stay focused and do her best in each session. She is a hard worker! It is wonderful to see such a wonderful family actively seeking the best educational experiences for your children. Thank you again for the wonderful opportunity!
Petrina is an excellent tutor. My son (1st grade) has responded very well to her, much better than I had hoped. She is patient, well-organized, thorough, and has a lot of experience. She has gone well beyond what I would have expected from her, which I greatly appreciate. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation. I only wish I had found her sooner!Daniel, 1 lesson with PetrinaTutor responded:
Thank you so much for the opportunity to work with your son. He is a very special little boy with a great heart and has a great love for learning. He has grown so much over this past year! So proud of him. Thank you for being active parents in your child's education!
