Teaching comes naturally to me and I have always enjoyed helping others not only to learn but also to guide them to self-discovery of their own potential and inborn curiosities. I believe in the importance and power of education and I enjoy working with youth and helping them to build confidence and motivation to succeed in their studies. My passion for education led me to become a public high school teacher for 8 years before I decided to become a full-time graduate student to eventually pursue a career in higher education. During my tenure at Santa Fe High School I taught college preparatory English to all 4 grades as well as SAT prep courses. I have also had extensive experience tutoring one on one. I feel comfortable around children and teenagers and enjoy helping them to succeed. I have an easygoing and patient demeanor that helps to create a productive learning environment.

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.
I have four years of experience tutoring K-6 students. I have helped students with their homework in all subjects, especially with reading comprehension and fluency. The parents have always been very happy with the way in which I interact with their children. I am patient and caring and I enjoy the perspective that young students give me.
I have had experience helping ESL writers improve their verbal and written fluency. I worked in the university writing center when I was a student and helped a lot of struggling ESL writers. I also have met privately with English language learners to practice conversing and to talk about American culture. I have taught English as a second language in China, Brazil, and Thailand to kids as young as 4 to teenagers.
When I was a undergraduate student I worked in the university writing center as a tutor. I helped both undergraduate and graduate students with their writing, especially ESL learners who were struggling with their grammar. I also have 8 years of experience teaching English at the high school level. I have developed units on teaching grammar to my high school students and have studied how to teach grammar effectively. I am now a graduate English student pursuing my MA in English.
My command of the English language is excellent. I write well and grammar and composition come naturally to me. I have been employed twice by individuals to proof read their work documents. I am currently a graduate English student at CSULB.
As a high school English teacher for 8 years, I realized very early in my career that my students needed to be taught study skills. Most of my students did not come into the classroom knowing how to study for different types of assignments and tests and part of being an effective teacher was anticipating and then addressing the needs that my students had. I have also had professional development that was focused on helping struggling learners who often had difficulty with organization and time management.
