Having a strong foundation in Reading and Writing is essential for student success. I am passionate about helping kids build that strong base so they feel confident about their ability to do well in school.
Often, teachers don't have the time to give individual attention to students that need it. However, this can make a tremendous difference in a child's life.
With empathy, warmth, and patience, I help students discover that they do have the potential, can develop these skills along with their peers, and experience success that strengthens their self-concept as a student.
It's best to catch it early, but helping students as they enter middle school, high school, and college is something that I find very fulfilling, as well. One of the most important abilities a student can have is expression through writing, demonstrating what they've learned. It's the highest form of mental comprehension and communication.
I have experience working with kids of all ages, in the classroom and one-on-one privately, which I enjoy the most because I feel I help them more that way. I believe every student has the right to master what they are taught before pushing forward and always feeling behind.
It's rewarding to help a student at any age understand concepts and experience confidence and achievement they can feel proud of.
English Literature, Writing, Child-development, Psychology, and teaching have been my life-long passions for the last twenty-eight years. It's been a part of my daily life as a teacher, tutor, and parent in Orange County, Murrieta, and now throughout the country online.
I have earned a teaching credential in the state of California, have teaching experience in grades K-6 in the public school system, as well as tutoring multiple subjects and teaching piano and voice privately.

It's important to discuss with the student and parent the areas of difficulty. This gives us a clear picture that guides the necessary steps taken to remedy the problem. Detailed goals are outlined to measure success.
Creating a comfortable rapport built on trust, respect, patience, and encouragement is vital for growth to take place. I do not shy away from challenges and believe in the capability of every student when given the chance to learn and succeed.
I tailor my tutoring to the uniqueness of each student and draw upon different learning styles that best suit them.
I have earned a California Teaching Credential for grades K-8, taught in public school, and mostly instructed students privately through the years. I've gained valuable insight and skills by directly working with students in the classroom, small groups, and individually. My degree in Social Ecology with an emphasis in Human Development from UCI, as well as my studies in teaching methods, and various learning strategies provide a strong knowledge base.
I've always loved writing, and English is a subject I'm passionate about and excelled in as a student. I've been freelance writing for businesses and have completed novels in the process of obtaining representation. This has given me a further and continually growing understanding of effective writing.
My teaching has given me the most experience and training. Connecting with students, making the material meaningful and relevant for them, and inspiring them to do their best is my forte.
My tutoring sessions usually run one hour, but can be half an hour for younger children. The half-hour sessions are best scheduled twice a week for optimum success.
I charge $36 an hour and $18 for half an hour
I'm flexible in creating a plan that works best for each client.
I've been teaching since I can remember. It has always been a natural part of my personality, starting with my younger brother, neighbors, and friends. I loved proving that they could understand a concept, learn a new skill, master what they and others thought they couldn't. Even before I earned my credential, I worked in classrooms and helped students who were falling behind catch up with their classmates.
I've worked with students of all ages, special-needs students, grade-school students, and also adults.
A teacher that has experience in the subject you need assistance with is very important. Just as crucial is a teacher's passion to help you understand, to convey the information in ways that make sense to you.
Knowledge in the topic is essential, but the ability to teach, which requires listening attentively, communicating the subject matter in a clear way while providing patience and encouragement is equally important for success.
Which aspects of the subject are giving you trouble?
What do you hope to accomplish from tutoring?
How do you feel about the subject?
It's normal to have doubts about your ability to understand the work. That is where a tutor can truly help.
I look forward to helping you reach your goals and experience confidence and success.
