SFSU/SFCC (liberal studies)
BA San Francisco State University (SFSU) (Graduate Coursework)
I am a dedicated elementary teacher working with special needs students over 28 years with public schools. I have received a Multiple Subject Teaching Credentials from San Francisco State University as well as Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies from San Francisco State University. I have participated in many organized educational programs and art projects, which have given me a wealth of knowledge through experiences that go beyond the formal credentials. Whether for a school year, summer school session, an after school program or volunteering, I have worked quite consistently with elementary to high school students.
I have interacted and instructed students with a range of backgrounds that have included differing social class, race, and engagement of learning (from intensive to proficient learning).
My practice is that I embraced students while having fun learning. I am willing to step farther and deeper into the lives of my students to nurture and cultivate their love of learning.
I use student performance data in developing, delivering and assessing my instruction. Assessing Data Director is an important tool to start the
cycle of inquiry. The experiences I have had working with performance data at the zone school has helped me to develop instruction by looking at the gaps and backward mapping finding ways to scaffold and differentiate instruction, and
meeting the diverse needs of my students. The data collected helps me know what and how to deliver the lesson so that students genuinely learn and enjoy learning. Assessing students' on going abilities throughout the school year and
collaborating with my grade level team continues the cycle of inquiry.
With these skills, I am able to share assessments with parents and set goals with students, and monitor their academic growth routinely. As I analyze the students' work, this allows me to evaluate the effectiveness of students' understanding of the instruction, making the adjustments, which need to be made in order to maximize students learning and to build a balanced program for each student. I have worked and still working in different capacities, whether for the school year, summer school session, an after school program or volunteering, I have worked
quite consistently with elementary to high school students.
One of my goals for each session is to keep the student challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson, and I provide periodic assessments and progress reports.
I look forward to taking part in the journey as your child’s tutor. Thank you for taking the time to review and consider me for your child tutor. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

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 taught math for 28 years. I am very familiar with the Common Core math program from Kindergarten to sixth grade.
