Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

I Can Help Your Child Learn!

I am a retired teacher with a current California credential. I have a good grasp of grammar and essay writing, and I am an English-only speaker. For 22 years I taught elementary school as a Resource Specialist, working with students with learning disabilities. Once the writing purpose or genre of writing is identified, I teach students how to begin their writing by using a graphic organizer. Having a visual map of what will be written makes writing a much less daunting task and keeps one's focus on the topic. [more]
