"I am currently meeting students at coffee houses, public libraries, or tutoring ONLINE/ virtually. I am a tenured teacher with certifications in Advanced Honors, and SAT Prep, Gifted and Talented Education, AVID strategies, and training in cognitive behavioral therapy. I learn about you, who, by the way, is the most important person - here. Then, I begin to see what your blocks are, what keeps you from working at your best. It usually takes me just two sessions to understand your learning style: visual, auditory, kinesthetic - or if you are multi-modal: like I am. I LOVE learning about HOW students learn so that I can help them to achieve academic goals. This, I see clearly, through my training in the Universal Design for Learning (the affective, recognition and strategic networks of learning).

I have been classroom teaching within one of the largest school districts in our nation, for over 21 years. I have helped over 3,000 students to culminate middle school and high school over the course of my career. Teaching is my dream job, from which I do not need a vacation!

I am passionate and constantly intrigued by reading, writing, English literature, world literature and grammar, and how the human brain grasps it all. My students also call me a "Word Smith", as I easily transfer word meanings around by their Greek and Latin roots, prefixes and suffixes. I also have strategies for helping students to remember Greek and Latin roots, in preparation for the ACT/ SAT. I am always reading and ready for what's new on the Los Angeles and New York Times Best Seller's list.

If you are looking for a personable and professional tutor who will actually help you to understand HOW you learn, and will also help you to raise your grades across all academic subjects that require writing, reading comprehension, and presenting, both in person and digitally, then I am the tutor for you!" less...
