California State University-Bakersfield (History)
I am a mother of two. One child leans toward ADD and the other is Autistic. I have taught Sunday school, pioneer girls, home-schooled, substituted, tutored, and taught in a grade school ELD classroom and as an interventionist. I worked with my autistic child to balance his education and increase his verbal acuity. He is now a high-functioning articulate young man.
I have credentials for Elementary Education, Special Education, and Social Studies. I am currently going to school to earn my Master's in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education. I am always eager to help students find their way and gain confidence in education as I value knowledge and exploration.
I am patient. I am willing to look at a problem in more than one way, if a student cannot grasp a concept I will look to find another way to present it until we are successful.
I am working on my CLDE Master's and just finished working as a 4th grade teacher and interventionist for ESL and struggling readers. I saw great growth in all my students. Using Write Tools strategies for writing and A to Z reading for grammar, phonics, and comprehension skills I saw my students grow 8 levels (approximately 1 grade level) in 7 weeks.
I have home-schooled, tutored, and worked with Elementary children since I was 14 years old. The last 6 years I have substituted in 8 school districts with students from all walks of life. I am credentialed in Elementary Education and worked with K-5th grade students in intervention programs over the 2015-2016 school year.
I care about YOU the student and helping you learn and gain, not only the skills to succeed, but also the confidence to continue learning as you go through school and life. I am a mother of two.

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.
I have taken all algebra courses offered at community colleges and have tutored many peers, students, and adults in mathematics since my Sophomore year in High School.
I have a Colorado Teaching License for Elementary Education (K-6). During the 2015-2016 school year I was a 4th grade CLDE teacher at Monterey Elementary and an Interventionist for K-5 students in the areas of reading and math. I have substituted in elementary schools for 5 years previous to my teaching job and had several long-term positions in 2nd and 6th grade classrooms.
I have worked as an interventionist helping K-5 students increase their abilities in reading, comprehension, writing, phonics, and grammar. I have taken the Write Tools workshop learning how to teach writing in a way that is more accessible and complete to the student. I am also adding to my English and communication skills by taking the Master's program at CSU-Pueblo for Cultural and Linguistically Diverse Education.
I am enrolled in the CLDE Master's program at CSU-Pueblo. I taught English language learners during the 2015-2016 school year: 4th graders and then K-5 intervention in reading, comprehension, writing, phonics, and mathematics.
