About Claudia

With more than 25 years of experience in teaching and tutoring K-12 students, I have learned ways to make learning an adventure that draws on the strengths of each student. Our first session will include talking about educational goals, and ways to create an exciting road map to achieve the desired results.

My "official" degrees include a California Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential, two Masters in Education, one in Child Development and the other in Teaching English as a Second Language. I have also been an ESL specialist with a local district, as well as taught ESL in adult schools in California.

My most memorable experience in education has been lecturing at a conference for English teachers in Peru. As an avid nature photographer, my most memorable moment was capturing images of penguins in Antarctica.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, a Masters in Education from CSUEB. and over 20 years of experience as an elementary level educator in California schools

For the past three years, I have worked as a Home/Hospital Teacher for a Bay Area school district at the K-6 level. I see the most significant academic improvements in my students when we work from what they already know, and set both short and long term goals.

One of my greatest joys is to see students adopt a more positive attitude towards ALL of their school subjects.

Study Skills

I have been a home hospital instructor for San Leandro Unified for the past 4 years. I have had 5th through 12th graders who are given assignments in every subject. Approaches to the effective use of each student's time is covered. I can provide a letter from my former supervisor at San Leandro Unified is requested.
