Bio

I've tutored off and on over the last 20 years, and taught professionally as a PhD educated, licensed teacher for 6 years. As a professional educator, I've already been background checked by the districts I've worked for. My broad experience with students, subjects, and schools will serve you well.

My specialty subjects include:
- elementary and middle school math
- pre-Algebra
- Spanish
- English as a Second Language
- Home schooling

In addition to traditional subjects, I can:
- hone students' study skills
- develop time management skills
- set and accomplish goals with students
- reduce academic anxiety.

I can also teach students and families how to
- navigate relationships with teachers, counselors, and administrators to advocate for their learning.

Over the last eight years, I've taught and been a Native Language Tutor in Boulder, CO and surrounding areas. I'm convinced that one on one and small group instruction are so much more powerful, so I'm back to tutoring!

My approach involves tutoring the whole person. I bridge between students' natural motivators and learning styles and their learning goals. I have the analytical mind to break down concepts, projects, and tests into manageable chunks so that students can learn. And I have the heart to connect with students, grow their motivation, tailor learning to their multiple intelligences, and build their confidence. I help students gain control of their learning, as they learn processes that will help throughout their lives.

I have also taken PassageWorks year long Mindfulness in Education training, and can share self regulation strategies from mindfulness if you'd like. I want to help bring out the amazing being already present within you or your child, including addressing whatever challenges may be appearing in this moment. We're in this together!

ESL/ESOL,

ESL/ESOL

I've taught adult ESL, middle school ESL, and elementary school ESL. I love working with diverse learners at a variety of English levels. We can cover reading/writing/listening/speaking, English for particular purposes, or whatever would best support you. I earned my PhD in Educational Equity and Cultural Diversity at CU Boulder, and am certified to teach k-12 Linguistically Diverse Education by the state of CO. I've also taught at CU's International English Center, among other places. Si Ud. habla espanol, podemos clarificar asuntos con espanol tambien, si prefiere.
Spanish

Spanish

I love to teach Spanish, as it is such an important language in our country and community, with such rich culture. I studied Spanish 8 years formally, including when my college professor told me "I can't teach you anymore. You have to go to another country." So I enthusiastically studied in Costa Rica the next semester. I have returned 3 times since, about 3 months total, as well as visiting Mexico 2 times. Languages can be harder for some of us than others, but I can help your student gain confidence and competency in Spanish.

Elementary Education

Homeschool

I am certified by the state of CO to teach Elementary Education, Linguistically Diverse Education k-12, Social Studies Education gr 6-12, English Language Arts 7-12. I am also fluent in Spanish and have tutored it, as well as living in Costa Rica and traveling to Mexico. I have taught elementary small group math and literacy, and supported teachers in Algebra and Physical Science. My diversity of skills makes me an ideal candidate for home school families who may be interested in multiple subjects. My sister home schools, so I understand what it's like to home school, and I'm here for you to support all you do for your family's education. I am available during the day and would love to hear from you and tailor a program for your needs.

Algebra 1

Pre-Algebra and Algebra: I have tutored these subjects off and on for about 20 years. I most recently co-taught an Algebra 1 class in the Westminster School District, and I tutored students in Algebra 1 in Boulder Valley School District. I love how we can use Algebra in real life situations. When I help students to bridge between the math-talk and real life, it sets up their foundation for higher math, and their confidence as budding mathematicians.

Prealgebra

I started tutoring math when I was in high school, and I have tutored and taught for over 15 years since then. I most recently co-taught Algebra in a middle school, where I made connections to real life examples, and used a variety of strategies and explanations to make the work accessible. Students grew in their abilities and their identities as young mathematicians. I've also supported small group work with girls who lacked confidence in math. We started with what they could do, and I showed them how to take it one step at a time, until they accomplished more challenging work. They learned a lot and had fun while doing so!
