CA multiple subject credentialed and experienced Teacher Muse for tutoring support (grades 2 through 9). My BA and teaching credential are from UCLA. My multiple subject (elementary) credential includes supplementary subject authorizations (through 9th grade) in mathematics (including Geometry) and English.

The makings of a mused middle school math teacher... My teaching background began with middle school core (Language Arts and World History). Then, 6th and 7th grade combination classes (self-contained with all subjects). My personal interests in math, science fiction/ fantasy, astronomy, and archery, were able to be incorporated with subject lessons into a connected multi-discipline program with historical context and author field-trip visits. With my English authorization, I became versed in essay writing (now the 4 main essay types; story/narrative, descriptive, informative/expository, and persuasive).

With my math authorization, I began my career as a creative middle school math Teacher Muse of Prealgebra (occasionally with sections of Integrated-1, Geometry, and Algebra 1). This also meant involvement with math challenges, contests, and standards, but I still had time for a Harry Potter Club with Gym Quidditch, and of course always my students.

In 2014, I further extended my Teacher Muse repertoire as a WyzAnt tutor, a 4th grade summer school math enrichment teacher, and a substitute teacher (grades 2-8).

In working with students of different ages, it is an asset to have the subject content articulation understanding of where/how thematic topics continue. My most popular tutor subject has been Math/Prealgebra from all levels of exploration. Mathematics is the science of patterns and a language. I have also assisted students prepare for math placement tests and transition to various math programs at different schools.

A perspective of muse/fun can sometimes open different learning pathways on the journey to get things done. So, whether it be math sense, writing/vocabulary, organization skills, homework/exam prep., and/or subject empowerment/confidence/advancement,... I invite you to consider a Teacher Muse for a tutor guide to transform the journey into a positive adventure onward.

"Learning begins with wonder." ~Socrates

Thank you for reading my profile and this opportunity to introduce myself for your WyzAnt tutoring consideration. I look forward to hearing from you; let the learning begin.

Great Tutor

My daughter is a six grader and is taking 7th grade online math by herself. She always feels confused. With Ms. S's help, she is much clearer now. We know it is very important to have a good math foundation in middle school, and a great tutor would make it much easier.
