About Gina

I earned my CA Teaching Credential and graduated from CSUSB at the top of my class. This occurred during the first major wave of layoffs of California teachers, so I continued my education in Mild to Moderate Special Education and earned my certification. In addition to the required student teaching, I also taught as a substitute teacher both short and long term at public and private schools. Because most schools are forced to be more concerned about testing than actual learning, I chose not to pursue my career as a classroom teacher. I have letters of reference noting my engaging skills and talent in teaching.

Reading does not have to be boring or difficult, even for ESL students; in fact, it can be interesting and exciting. A good reader will excel in all other curriculum simply due to better comprehension of text and understanding of directions for assignments and tests. My method of teaching is focused on the individual student based on personality and identified skills.

I earned my credential under the new, tougher teaching requirements. I successfully taught in a large variety of classroom dynamics. My thesis was on the history of teaching paradigms in changing global and local communities. The focus was on why teaching methods have succeeded and failed.

Because I spent so much time in both public and private classrooms, I know what schools require and why certain weaknesses occur. I furthered my education and deepened my understanding of learning differences, and have proven positive experiences with addressing individual learning needs.

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.

Common Core

During my extensive teacher training, I studied the concepts of Common Core. Many people misunderstand this alternative way to look at problems, and are, therefore, confused by it. I have the perspective of learning many forms of alternative learning due to my Special Education education training. I feel that this helps me to better explain and help students make real connections using Common Core.

Elementary (K-6th)

I studied at CSUSB and earned my CCTC on 02/15/2005. I continued my education to earn a Special Education recommendation in mild to moderate disabilities. I have taught as a substitute teacher both short and long term, at public and private schools. Many of the teachers that I have worked with have written me letters of recommendation, pointing out my natural ability to teach.
