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.

Cooking

Aside from being a professional Chef for over 40 years, I hold a current California, permanent, full-time, post-secondary Designated Subjects Credential in Foodservice.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a Credentialed, Bilingual K-12 Substitute Teacher for SCUSD since December, 2006.

Elementary Math

When teaching Elementary Math, I relate it to money, which is where most of us actually use Elementary Math. Also, kids seem to relate to money much more readily than just numbers.

English

As a Substitute teacher, I have taught English to many students at all levels. Also, as a teacher, I have written lesson plans, handouts, and exams.
As a Certified Life Coach, I have written copy for websites, articles, and brochures.
As an entrepreneur, I have written several business proposals, and business plans.

ESL/ESOL

As a Bilingual (Spanish/English) Credentialed Substitute Teacher for Sacramento City Unified School District, and SES Tutor, I have helped many non-native English speakers to improve their English Language skills. I know that English can be difficult, and I work with my students to encourage greater ease and fluency with English - especially conversational American English.

Public Speaking

Aside from teaching in public schools, private lessons, and accredited private post-secondary institutions, I have given public numerous presentations as a life coach to groups ranging from 5-100.

Reading

I have been a credentialed, bilingual K-12 substitute teacher for a unified school district since 2006, and have ample experience teaching reading skills.

Spanish

I learned Spanish as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Costa Rica. I am fluent (Speak, Understand, Read and Write) to the level of a High School graduate. I am very comfortable conversing in Spanish, and do it whenever the opportunity arises.

Study Skills

I have been teaching since 1979 in a variety of subjects. I am currently a credentialed bilingual K-12 substitute teacher for Sac City Unified SD. I have a thorough understanding of the study skills required for K-12 students.

Tennis

I have been an avid Tennis player for over 50 years, and have taught Tennis on several occasions. Also, I have been a professional teacher for over 20 years.

Writing

As a teacher, I have written lesson plans, handouts, and exams.
As a Certified Life Coach, I have written copy for websites, articles, and brochures.
As an entrepreneur, I have written several business proposals, and business plans.
