About Georgia

Hello all prospective students! I am an elementary school teacher (finishing up my Master's in Education and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential). I love to teach! I have a lifelong love of learning all things! I am very knowledgeable in many subjects, and if I do not know something or am unfamiliar, I make sure to find out! I am excellent at research. My goal as a tutor is to help you realize your own potential as a student, by working on your strengths and weaknesses to overcome any obstacle. I am trained in different teaching techniques and study methods. I have a lot of patience and do well with students of all ages (as I am a substitute for my school district currently - elementary - high school). I am also very tech savvy and can help you learn how to use a computer, if that is what you seek (i.e. Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel Basics, working around a MAC or PC).

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. Thank you for your time, and I hope we can work together to give you/your student the successful tools needed to excel in any academic achievement!

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 my CBEST and all my CSET (CSET 1, 2, 3 - for a multiple subject teaching credential). If you need study strategies or help in passing any of these tests, I can be of help to you, and offer my study strategies that helped me pass each test the first time I took each of them. If you are not a fan of taking tests, but know the material, I can even help you with techniques on focusing and time management.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a qualified Elementary School Teacher, who is finished with the coursework, but waiting to do my student teaching. I have been a substitute teacher for a local school district for 2 1/2 years now, and I teach all subjects (i.e. Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Grammar, etc). I am called frequently to sub, since I make sure to follow the lesson plans thoroughly, and leave excellent notes for the teacher. This way the teacher does not have to reteach and waste precious time, the students don't miss a beat, and the teacher can continue her lessons as planned.

Greek

I am of Greek descent, and my parents are both from Greece. From the ages of 8 - 14, I was enrolled in an intensive Greek Language School program. I learned to read, write, and speak more fluently. I learned about Greek History, Geography, and Language skills that would be with me for life. I was so fortunate that I got this opportunity, that when I did a study abroad to Greece with a local city college (I finally got to see all the places I had studied), I was the only person who spoke the language. It was of such great value to them, that they hired me to be their "translator," for the following Study Abroad to Greece. I find that learning another language enriches the person (at any age), whether it be someone who is learning Greek or someone who is Greek and needs assistance in learning the English language.

Macintosh

I currently own all things Macintosh (MAC for short). I love Apple products, and can help you master them too! They are very user friendly, but if you find it difficult to switch over from your PC, I can help you. I have a lot of patience when it comes to educating people at anything they need help in, or that I have researched thoroughly (making me very competent in a subject). I know how to use iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD and any other program that comes with a MAC. I can even help you effectively organize your files and learn how to use Time Machine to back everything up. I also know how to make adorable DVDs with your camera footage, CDs of music for your car (using iTunes), anything else creative you can think of. I love my MAC!

Sociology

I am qualified to tutor this subject because I received my Bachelors Degree from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona in Sociology (General). I have a passion for Sociology because of its vast information on how a society functions in all of its institutions. I am also well studied in theorists, methodologies, and the psychology/criminal justice portion of the field. Depending on your level of need, I can help you study Sociology, by organizing everything you need into a more manageable flow of information. I can even assist you with study techniques that will help you achieve high scores on tests/exams.
