I am passionate and dedicated to the education of children. I am the parent of 2 adult girls. I have been a substitute teacher for 15 years, teaching in grades Kindergarten through 8th. I have tutored students in after school programs and private agencies. My experience as a substitute teacher has provided me with a great deal of understanding about various teaching styles, and how to design a teaching plan for each individual based upon their learning ability. Each child is unique in how they learn. Some children are visual learners, hands-on, auditory or a combination of all three.
I am familiar with the California State Standards and the new common core requirements and for each grade level. I have an extensive amount of teaching material to use in my tutoring sessions. I am patient and take as much time as needed for an individual to master the concept being taught. I use positive re-enforcement to get a child to learn. I believe it is very important for the child to feel good about themselves and the progress they are making. I am passionate and dedicated to the education of children.

She is always on time, very patient with my daughter. I would just like to thank Geraldine for the support that she gave to my daughter. Definitely when my daughter needed a tutor again I ask for Geraldine.
Geraldine uses a variety of strategies to teach educational concepts and is very patient and systematic, in applying them to meet the needs of my grandchild.
Gerri is very patient, passionate and easy to work with. She listens to your needs and begins to find a way to help your child overcome barriers and challenges.
Thank you Reba for your kind words. It is always good to know how you are doing and if you are making a difference. I hope I can continue to help!
The tutoring sessions with Ms. P. have been great. She is an excellent teacher, she is always patient with the kids, and very dependable. Our kids look forward to their weekly session with her. She cares about her students and makes learning fun.
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.
