My experience includes tutoring students in learning strategies, biology, chemistry & physics during college. I graduated with honors with a BA in Biology & a minor in Chemistry from California State Fullerton in California. I have had two years of medical school training & am a certified Massage Therapist. For the last 16 years I have taught human anatomy, physiology, medical terminology, kinesiology & learning strategies for technical college students. I homeschool 4 children in elementary, middle & high school level material.

My tutoring philosophy and approach is gentle, thorough, encouraging & persistent. Repetition is important when learning information, but so is evaluating the best learning style for how the student's brain remembers information. First, I help the student determine what learning style they are (a 5 minute inventory) and then I tailor the tutoring sessions based on the best way the student learns, whether that is kinesthetic, auditory, visual or a combination of methods. Teaching to one's learning style improves retention of the needed material and sets up success that carries over to effective lifelong study habits.

I have found over the last twenty five years of teaching science and math, that most students learn best when more than one learning style accompanies learning. The brain connects best when games, humor, music, manipulation of objects and stories are used to enhance memory and the retention of material. All of these techniques are well utilized in my tutoring sessions.

For the past 18 years I have taught learning strategies for students at a massage therapy technical college. I first help the student discover their learning style and whether they learn best through visual, auditory or kinesthetic information. I tailor each tutoring session to play to the strengths of the student in how they can best be successful in their approach to studying for the subject material they are seeking help with. I use a variety of methods to enhance their learning style; recording information for auditory learners, flash cards or charts for visual learners and manipulation or models for hands-on learners. Each learning style accesses different parts of the brain. The key is to learn how to tap into the correct files to quickly and accurately retrieve and retain information. Learning styles can be determined for every grade level and can have far reaching effects covering the communication and interactions that they have with other people.

Excellent Tutor

Judy really helped turn around my daughter's performance in Algebra. She not only helped her with her current work, she went back and made sure she understood basic concepts and helped her locate and complete overdue assignments. At the end of the semester we received these comments from her teacher. " I want to let you know how much she's improved in my algebra class over the past month or so. "She's become a leader in the group she works with, asks great questions, uses her notes perfectly, and has been a bright spot [in the class."

Struck the perfect balance between challenge and support

Judith was absolutely fantastic tutoring my daughter in physics! She was easy to communicate with to arrange the lesson. She was warm and validating to my daughter, which was critical. She started by asking smart questions to help her develop a focus and pace. She asked about my daughter's learning style! She was focused on physics and moved efficiently through the homework assignment, skillfully working both for deeper understanding of concepts and methods, while getting today's work done. Judith effortlessly struck the perfect balance between challenge and support. We are thrilled.
