K-12, Bilingual, Reading/Language Arts, Mathematics Tutoring

As an elementary school teacher for 13 years...and substitute and other teacher for 5 years beyond that...I constantly taught students ways to study effectively in order to learn subject matter being taught to them. These include memorization, repetition, multiple exposures, paraphrasing, teaching to others in a small group, and even reteaching using more basic teaching language. In 1985, I left one career and began another. I moved from a clerical career to a teaching career. After one year in the Mills College graduate teacher training program I graduated and obtained my teaching credentia [more]

Credentialed English Teacher for Essay Writing & SAT Prep

As a peer tutor during college, I emphasized time management as a priority assignment, concentrated on reading and comprehension of the lesson objective and appropriate note-taking either as an outline, flashcards or Cornell notes. I differentiated my tutoring style to accommodate any learning challenges (such as ADHD or dyslexia) and used scaffolding whenever appropriate for the lesson. As a high school substitute teacher, I employ one or more of these study habits every day with students. I have earned a B.A. in English and a Teaching Credential in English. I am a published poet and artist [more]
