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 worked with all kinds of different learners. I was most often called as a substitute for special needs children. My own daughter and grandson were both diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. I am great at setting up systems for students to learn. Good discipline and consistency are very helpful.
I have over 15 years in the classroom serving various ages. I also have many years of home tutoring experience for high school students.
I come from a bi-lingual background and understand the needs of people when learning English. I make learning appropriate to my students' needs.
I studied Hebrew until the age of 14. I continue to use my Hebrew reading and pronouncing skills on a regular basis as I practice my faith. I had my Bat Mitzvah at 12 and was Vice-President of the junior congregation. I am also planning a trip to Israel in the near future.
I have taught Honors General Science in Mission San Jose High School, one of the top campuses in the Fremont Unified School District. I have tutored for a number of Charter Schools, including Everest High School and Phoenix Academy. I teach test prep skills based on the positive results of my test taking successes.
For many years I was a substitute teacher and assisted students of all ages, preschool through adult in all subjects. I have a language specialist certificate and am trained in ESL. My training at Charles Armstrong supplemented my phonics training to assist special learners as well.
I have been working in front of the public most of my life. I have taught many different subjects to children and adults, trained adults in various work skills and presented product lines with two different direct sales companies. I am a former member of a Toastmasters speaking club and feel confident discussing subjects that I have knowledge in.
After over 15 years in the classroom I have worked with special students mainstreamed in the classroom as well as substituted numerous hours in special ed. classrooms. Some of those students still relate to me today as adults. I have tutored non-reading 12 and 13 year olds. I have attended training sessions at Charles Armstrong School for special needs learning and adapt with all my students to find their best way of learning, be it visual, auditory, etc.
I have over 15 years of experience in the classroom and numerous years running an after school program for at risk students and athletes. I have taught study skills to ages 5-18 years old. Many of my students have had special needs, such as trouble concentrating or organizational skills and trouble focusing. I have worked with students in public school and charter schools, including Everest High School in Redwood City and Phoenix Academy of East Palo Alto.
