I went to grad school at California State University Dominguez Hills where I earned my teaching certification in Middle School Education. I also hold two B.A.'s from Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA in International Studies and Spanish. I have a little over 10 years of teaching/tutoring experience and am always finding ways to improve my pedagogy so that I can be the best tutor for you. I am a Teach for America alumna, have taught for two different major school districts in the country, have volunteering tutoring hours for community organizations/churches, have been a supervisor at a national tutoring center, and currently, I am a full-time private tutor for students from elementary school all the way thru college. I tutor a broad range of subjects and am especially trained in teaching reading, writing, organizational skills, test prep, study skills, and Spanish. I also tutor a variety of courses in math, history, and science. From tutoring college students over the past several years, I have gained experience in tutoring 1st and 2nd year college students in a variety of courses/subjects. I have been a testing scribe for students requiring special accommodations and am very familiar with IEP/504 plans. Several years ago, I published an adult fiction novel and two young adult stories, so I am very familiar with the writing process and teaching organizational skills. Lastly, I have been a homeschool teacher for elementary students and I have worked extensively with students who have irregular schedules and special circumstances due to medical reasons, overseas travel, and foreign exchange programs.

With me as your child's tutor, you can expect:
-A carefully selected tutor based on educational background, specialized skills, and education
-Regular assessment of student's progress
-Communications with parents is welcomed and valued
-Tutoring provided at a time and place that's convenient to you

More about me:
-I use a "client-centered" approach that targets individual goals
-I employ 21st century technology during online sessions
-I served students from elementary school through college
-I offer daytime, evening, and weekend appointments
-I have mastered strategies and tools needed to help children with learning differences

Elementary Education

Common Core,

Common Core

As a former middle school teacher, it was my job to understand common core and be able to implement it into my classroom. I am well-versed in the standards for each grade level, and as a homeschool instructor and full-time tutor, I use the strategies and teaching aides daily that Common Core recommends.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my undergraduate degree in International Relations & Spanish (Pepperdine), participated in Teach for America for two years, teaching 6th grade in Los Angeles, received my teaching certification for multiple subjects (CSUDH), and taught 6-8th grade at Friendship Public Charter School in Washington, D.C. Furthermore, I was a director at a national tutoring chain and am presently pursuing my writing career. I have published three books and currently enjoy tutoring part time.
Handwriting,

Handwriting

One of the best things you can give a child is instruction in how to write a legible signature. As a former middle school teacher and former director of a national tutoring chain, I've helped hundreds of students improve their handwriting, learn cursive, and feel proud of their penmanship.
Homeschool,

Homeschool

As a homeschool advisor and instructor, families depend on me to ensure their students are getting the most well-rounded and rigorous education as possible. I've been advising and teaching homeschooled families for ten years, and offer instruction on everything from how to setup a homeschool classroom, to how to choose the best curriculum for each subject. I've homeschooled only kids as well as large groups of siblings.
