About Stefanie

I am an experienced and effective elementary school teacher with LAUSD and I have over 30 years of experience. I am currently a second-grade teacher, but I have tutored children of all ages from Kindergarten to sixth grade. I currently am grade level representative at my school, and I frequently attend workshops and professional development classes to further my expertise. I also have experience with Common Core methods. I pride myself on being able to work with reluctant readers, and each year my students show substantial progress. English is my first language, and I have an A level fluency in Spanish from LAUSD. I lived in Mexico for three years and taught English as a second language in a private school for children and adults.
I am willing and able to tutor students in all elementary school subject areas including English as a second language and Spanish for middle school and high school students. I have a relatively flexible schedule and would be willing to meet from 4:00 on the majority of the weekdays. I live in Santa Monica, and I would be willing to meet at a local library. I will be charging $45.00 dollars an hour, and I will try my best to help all of my students succeed.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been an elementary school teacher with the Los Angeles Unified School District for over 30 years. I continue to participate in up to date trainings about Common Core Standards, Math and Language Arts.
I have had training in intervention strategies for Language Arts and Math.

Phonics

I have been an elementary school teacher in Los Angeles for more than 30 years and I feel that I have tremendous experience to offer. I have been trained in the Open Court Method of instruction and now I am using the California Treasures program in my classroom. I have had many years experience teaching at the kindergarten and second grade level where phonics instruction is essential.

Spanish

I have been a bilingual Spanish teacher with LAUSD for more than 5 years and I have A level fluency in Spanish from the district. I lived in Mexico for more than 3 years and I feel that my fluency level will be beneficial to students. Because I have been an elementary teacher for more than 30 years, I understand how students learn and know how to help them achieve.

As well as being prepared, patient and professional in every way. I highly recommend her! ...
