About Natasha

Dear Parents and Students,

Thank you for looking at my profile!! Please allow me to tell you a bit about myself.

As you can see from my profile picture I love hand-on learning experiences and seeking new adventures. I attended San Diego State University and earned a B.A. in Liberal Studies. After I earned my Bachelor's, I entered to teaching environment where I began as a Preschool Teacher for toddlers and pre-kindergarten students for three years. I then became an elementary school science assistant at a private school in Irvine for grades First through Sixth grades and I enjoyed every moment of it. During my time teaching science, I returned to school and earned my teaching credential and student taught in the Newport-Mesa District. I was blessed to have taught First grade as well as numerous long term substituting assignments. I am currently substituting in the Newport-Mesa District and Downey so that allows me to have a very flexible schedule for me to tutor your child.

My teaching philosophy is to ensure that there is a sense of fun and involvement in the learning process. I enjoy using visuals and a hands-on approach when I tutor children. If the learning is fun and engaging then it will ensure that there is academic success. My goal when I tutor your child is that they can develop a sense of confidence and success in their schooling.

I look forward in helping your child very soon!!
Thank you,
Natasha S.

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.

CBEST

I have passed the CBEST and I have the scores to qualify my success. The main approach I do is to associate the subject matter with concepts that I can connect to in order to study for the test. I also incorporated the practice tests as a tool to measure my learning.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught in an elementary school for six years including my students teaching and substituting and contracted teaching years. I possess a NCLB certificate as well.

Handwriting

I began handwriting neatly and legibly at the age of six years old. My school work from my writing is saved as a means to demonstrate my handwriting skills. In addition I also utilize the program titled Handwriting without Tears and I incorporate the songs as well as to help the students remember how to write their letters and words legibly.

Phonics

Throughout my teaching and substituting experience I have incorporated the sound cards from Open Court and Hought and Mifflin curriculum. I have also incorporated the DIBLES to encourage phonic skills.
