About Holly

Effective ability to work with students who have learning differences and challenges, I have had a great deal of success with helping students to resolve learning roadblocks. With more than 30 years of teaching experience, the diversity of my teaching positions as an educator have motivated me to have many tools in my toolbox.

I have been an Arizona, Colorado and California licensed Special Education and Elementary EducationTeacher for 25 years. My California and Colorado Teaching licenses are current in the realm of Elementary and Special Education.

Of the greatest importance, I enjoy working with children. Facilitating learning in all areas of a child's education makes for a successful teacher-student relationship. When a trusting relationship is established, learning is accelerated.

I currently work for Sonoma Valley School District so I have an up to date background check in place.
Letters of recommendation are available upon request.

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.

With a valid Colorado Teaching License and years of professional development classes along with 30 plus years of teaching, I am more than competent to tutor in the realm of reading. I also won the Quiet Hero Award from the Boulder Rotary Club for my work in literacy.

Special Needs

Vocabulary

I feel qualified to tutor this specific subject. One of the components of the mission statement in my classroom is to continue to learn new and more complicated vocabulary. Knowing and using vocabulary receptively and expressively is a very important aspect in the understanding and comprehension of literature and grade level text.
