After more than 25 years of teaching, studying, writing and enjoying English, as a native speaker I can help you with grammar, writing skills, ESL, public speaking, reading or phonics. I love teaching and learning, and I have taught students from ages 2 through adult; students with special needs including accelerated learners; students in four different countries; and in large classrooms as well as private tutoring. I have a California Life Teaching Credential with a multicultural emphasis, supplementary authorization in English, TOEFL and IELTS experience, Teacher of the Year award, and most importantly, a love of people and a desire to share my love of learning with them.

I especially enjoy tutoring because it allows me to individualize programs in order to help each student achieve his/her potential and receive the maximum benefit from each tutoring session. A short, one-hour tutoring session geared to your strengths and learning style can often accomplish much more than hours and hours of individual or classroom study. I hope we have an opportunity to be a student/teacher team to achieve your highest goals!

Phonics

After teaching kindergarten for five years and teaching my own children to become avid readers, I have acquired effective methods and strategies to help children learn the phonics they need to become successful readers, writers and spellers. I have used several different, widely-accepted phonics methods successfully, such as SRA, Hooked on Phonics, Open Court and Lindamood (previously Auditory Discrimination in Depth). Throughout the many years I have taught reading and phonics, I have developed many strategies to make reading an enjoyable activity for students.

Special Needs

During my career as an educator, I have been a swimming teacher for mentally and physically disabled students, learned sign language (ASL and SEE sign) and taught in school programs for the deaf, taken one semester of speech therapy classes, and helped with developing numerous IEPs for autistic and physically and/or mentally disabled students. When I was a substitute teacher, I was put on the list as a special needs educator, so I received numerous assignments in various special needs classrooms. I also have significant experience with Asperger's Syndrome, including a year of tutoring a student with Asperger's in remedial reading and math skills.
