About Sylvia

I am a mother of three. I have been homeschooling my children for the past nine years. I teach all subjects, but mostly Spanish and Sign Language.

I am also an interpreter. I interpret in public schools as well as an interpreter for government agencies in th South Bay Area.

I have also been tutoring/teaching children from a local charter school for the past seven years.

I enjoy working with kids and giving them the opportunity to learn new information everyday.

Thanks for taking me into consideration.

Regards,
Sylvia

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

As a homeschool teacher/tutor, I work with children and adults that English is not their first language.

With talking with the parents or adults we come up with a plan that best fits for acquisition of the English language.

Reading

Through my years as a homeschool parent and also as a tutor/teacher, I have found different tools to be able to help children and adults of all ages to excel and grow in their love for learning.

Sign Language

I have been signing now for 11+ years. I have interpreting at my local church for eight years now.

I have been teaching homeschoolers for six years until present through a local charter school. I also teach sign language classes at my church.

Unfortunately I do not know SEE, Signed Exact English or Manual Coded Sign. I do not have training in these areas. There are some schools that will tell you that it is an ASL class and when I see the curriculum I can let you know if I am able to help you in your learning process.

If you have any questions at all feel free to contact me.

Spanish

I have seven plus years tutoring/teaching and10 plus years interpreting/translating.
