San Jose State University (SJSU) (Environmental Studies)
I have a B.S. Degree in Environmental Studies from SJSU. I graduated Cum Laude. I have minors in Chemistry and Political Science. I also have an A.S. Degree in Aircraft Mechanics from City College of San Francisco. I won a scholarship to Northrup University Aircraft Engineering Program. I was also offered a scholarship to pursue a teaching credential from San Jose Unified School District.
I worked 10 years as a substitute teacher. I worked the public school system, K-12. I worked individually with students and in groups to assist them across the academic spectrum. I also taught adults, working for the California Motorcycle Safety Program. I worked these individuals in the field and classroom, individually and in groups.
My approach to tutoring is to first listen and learn where the student needs help. I ask the student how he/she would like to approach learning the material. Would the student like to work on the activities assigned, have remedial activities administered, or a combination of both? Where would the student like to start? I consult both the students and parents.
l truly enjoy the profession of teaching. It is very rewarding. Seeing the expressions of joy on students' faces when they come to understand a subject, brings me great happiness and satisfaction. I feel very motivated to facilitate the success of students and all individuals.
I have taught and tutored students in Algebra 1&2, Geometry, Elementary Math, Finite Math, Linear Algebra and more.
For a very successful, fulfilling experience in learning, I encourage the use my services. I make success a priority, and I make learning a fun experience. I have a B.S.

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.
During my first 6 months of substitute teaching, I worked with two master teachers who taught grades K-3. I learned from these teachers not only how to teach math at those grade levels but all subjects. I assisted in lesson plan development, administration of lesson plans, and one-to-one assistance with several students. During the summer following the 6 months, I was the lead teacher for the students who were going from K-1 to 2-3. In the ensuing years, I worked with that age group often and learned more details and nuances in connecting with students in those grade levels.
