About Theresa

I am a credentialed teacher with over ten years experience helping students become successful in reading, writing and math.

My training includes teaching both small group and individual students from diverse backgrounds. I have extensive experience with EL students, autistic, ADD and GATE students. By providing students with the encouragement and tools they need, confidence and joy of learning is imminent.

I have taught kindergarten for the past four years. However, my instructional practices support kindergarten through 12th grade. My instruction is research based, fun and motivating for students.

Holding a M.S. in Education, Reading and Literacy along with a Reading Specialist Credential, you're child will be placed on the fast track to succeeding their academic goals. Instruction is based on ongoing assessments ensuring instruction is tailored to their needs. Tutoring location is flexible.

I have been trained in elementary math and Algebra 1. I have several years experience helping students conceptualize math and understanding how to apply it to real life and academic settings.

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

I have been a public school teacher for the past 10 years. I have had the opportunity to work with the old California State Standards as well as integrating to the new Common Core Standards. Due to the changes in standards, I have been part of a team where the curriculum has been modified and changed to encompass all of the Common Core Standards. In addition, I am currently receiving ongoing training to ensure my techniques and strategies are in alliance with the Common Core.
