For the last 10 years I've worked as a classroom teacher. I've taught my students to become intelligent, tolerant, empathic, well-rounded citizens in a safe, fun and meaningful environment. I use humor, stories, and examples the students can relate to so they understand what they "don't get." The part of my classroom teaching I really enjoy is the one-on-one experience I can provide in a small group setting or when I tutor an individual. I'd love to help you or your child love learning as much as I do when they see they can attain their goal, mostly on their own, with my guidance. When tutoring in a home setting, my approach is very similar. However, since the student is more comfortable, has less distractions and has my full attention, learning takes place on a much faster pace. This is a good thing creating happiness for everyone involved! For the last 10 years I've worked as a classroom teacher.

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 ten years of classroom experience teaching multiple subjects.
English is one of the hardest subjects to learn but writing and speaking well are ways most people perceive as being an educated person. I have a supplemental certification to teach English as a separate subject in addition to my multiple subject credential. I passed the online test at 100%.
My current CA Multiple Subject Professional Clear Teaching Credential includes a Supplementary Authorization in English, CLAD-Crosscultural, Language & Academic Development Emphasis and ELD/SDAIE specific instruction for English Language Development.

Grammar is speaking and writing using the correct part of speech, correct verb tense, past, present or future, and additional words to complete a thought to express meaning. Phonics, reading, comprehension, and listening are ways I teach correct use of grammar. Many of my elementary school students are English Language Learners. However, even my English as their first language students still struggle with grammar. Teaching for 10 years has given me many resources and experience to help anyone improve their grammar skills.
Reading, writing and speaking are all essential to learning the English language properly. I teach using both phonics to read the words and whole language for comprehension. This includes reading stories for meaning that I believe are crucial to teaching Reading. My multiple subject teaching credential also allows me to teach English as a separate subject with a supplemental authorization.
SAT Reading includes many obscure words many people do not normally use. Taking this test required solid reading comprehension as well as excellent vocabulary. However, test taking strategies will be your best course of action to pass this test with high scores. In my many years of college and in my 10 years of teaching, I have become a well rounded person, having knowledge in many areas to pass to an eager student.
