Reading is the most important skill any student needs for academic success. Usually, students increase their fluency and comprehension one or more grade levels in 60 to 80 hours.
I am qualified to teach both English writing and SAT writing standards for better academic or business communication, essays and reports.
I have taught and tutored both under performing and gifted students to increase their skills and test scores in Language Arts/English.

As a site coordinator for Kaplan K-12 Learning Systems I was responsible for overseeing various teachers instruction in their "Test Taking Skills" program for under performing students in SCUSD in 2007. The best skills any student needs to learn is how to successfully study and take standardized class and Ca. State Standard tests. I am happy to report a median increase of anywhere from 15-20 points on most test scores. Please give your child the best chance of succeeding in school by learning these very important skills.
I have four years of experience working with special needs children in both first and second grade, especially with mild-moderate autism. This is a very important time to establish both language and successful behavioral/learning skills. I have had great success teaching non-verbal students to verbalize and high anxiety children to remain calm in various school and social situations. All children deserve a good start in school and life so that they fulfill their full potential.
I have over 4 years tutoring and teaching English as a Second Language in reading and speaking.
