About Ali

I am an experienced, certified teacher who loves the one-on-one experience I can share with a student through tutoring. I taught several years of middle school math and science and am now teaching elementary. I have a passion for helping students make gains in math through backing up and helping them gain number sense before moving on with more complex math. I also have a strong background in math and therefore know several strategies to try out with students. I've been tutoring professionally for over 10 years.

I also believe in building strong relationships with students to know how to best reach them and to help them enjoy our tutoring time. I have a background teaching many different types of students since I've taught everywhere from inner-city schools to private American schools abroad. I have traveled a lot and love sharing those experiences and lessons with my students.

I taught middle-school math for several years so I have a strong understanding of what students need in elementary math to be successful later on. I also have learned several different strategies aside from the traditional algorithm.

I have lots of reading/English teaching experience and have had success raising my students DRA and F&P scores several levels each year.

I have taught under the Common Core standards in grades 6, 5, 4, and 2.

I have been an elementary teacher and tutor for several years.

I am excited to start working with you and your family. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any further questions!

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 a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and my Wisconsin and California multiple-subject teaching credentials. I have taught grades 2, 4, 5, and 6 under the Common Core standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and my Wisconsin and California multiple-subject teaching credentials. I have taught grades 2, 4, 5, and 6 under the Common Core standards.

Elementary Math

I've taught middle school math (along with elementary) so I know what tools kids need to be successful down the road.

English

I teach 2nd grade reading and writing in San Diego Unified so I'm constantly learning new ways to effectively improve students' skills.

Handwriting

I currently teach handwriting in grade 2 using the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum and could use those resources to tutor.

Reading

I have taught Common Core reading and literature to grades 1-4 and love enjoying books with kids!
