About Gwenette

I currently teach preschool, but have taught both kindergarten and first-grade. I hold two Master's degrees, the last one being in Elementary Education. I enjoy helping students learn. I offer them encouragement, which helps build their confidence in that subject.

Finding a student's leaning style and interest is priority. I use this information to come up with exciting activities that will help spark their desire to continue learning. Each student has their own unique learning style. Therefore, I introduce them to various learning tools that they can use, to build upon what they already know. I believe all children can and want to learn.

I specialize in tutoring in math, English, reading, and study skills for elementary, high school students, and students preparing for the SAT and GED exams. My goal for each session is to break the lesson down into small parts to help in gaining understanding and reduce anxiety.

As a tutor I strive to meet the expectations of both the parent and student. I appreciate comments and will never charge for a lesson if the student or parent are not satisfied.

Weekday evenings are set aside to tutor students once they are dismissed from school. On rare occasions, I will tutor on the weekends. I use my home for most of my tutoring, to ensure a quiet and comfortable work space for the student. I will travel to another location if needed and if time will allow.

I want to help them achieve excellence in all they do. I look forward to helping your child grow in knowledge.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ACT Math

My experience with test preparation has been both in person and online with students. I am currently working with two ninth graders, who are preparing early for taking the ACT in the future. I also have helped students, living in California, to prepare for the CAHSEE.

Algebra 1

Math is my favorite subject to teach. I incorporate many visuals aids to help students understand the math concepts. For many of my lessons I use "Notebook Foldables." This teacher resource helps students keep their lessons organized. I also use the internet for added understanding and practice.

Algebra 2

I possess a Masters in both Education and Business Administration. I do have references if requested. I have over ten years tutoring experience. I have taught in a private school for more than five years. Just this past school year, I tutored online with high school students, who were taking their California exit exam.

ASVAB

I assist students with learning the skills needed to pass the math sections of the ASVAB test. I take time with each student to work through each type of math problem, showing him/her how to correctly solve them. Review of material is done often to make sure retention is maintained. With dedication and practice, my students are able to attain better scores.

Elementary Math

I am an elementary math certified teacher. I look forward to working with your child. I teach math using manipulatives, worksheets, and computer software.

Prealgebra

Math is my favorite subject to teach to students. I incorporate many visuals aids to help students understand the math concepts being introduced. In addition, I use Notebook Foldables to help keep lessons organized and give students a reference book to use as their resource guide for school.

SAT Math

My specialty is in tutoring math. The students I currently tutor are from kindergarten to college level. I focus mainly on helping college students with Algebra and Prealgebra assignments. I am looking forward to using my math skills to help high school students prepare for their SAT Math success.
