Personal Description:

Hello! I am a teacher from California, now residing with my husband and son in Ely. I love life, love and learning! Some of my other interests are exercising, cooking and travel. I could be teaching this year, but I’m taking some time to be at home with my 2 year old. A usual day for me is filled with toddler activities, such as play-dates, swimming, playground time and visiting with other mummy-friends. Life is a gift.

Tutoring Experience:

This is my 7th year as an Educational Specialist. I have a Special Education Credential and a General Education Credential, along with a Masters degree in Special Education from San Francisco State University. For my first three years, I taught at an elementary school, making sure all my students with special needs did well in their general education classes. I was really an Inclusion Specialist, making sure these students had the accommodations they needed to succeed with their peers. My fourth year, I did supply work, here in Ely, while waiting for my son to be born. The next two years I taught in San Jose, California; first at a middle school and lastly, at a charter school. During this time I also took extra courses to get my Autism Authorization, which was very helpful. Along with my students with ASD, I also taught students with emotional disorders, terminal illness, orthopedic impairments, cerebral palsy, but overwhelmingly, students with learning disabilities. Most of my students really struggled with reading, reading comprehension and writing.

Tutoring Approach:

I found that I got the best academic outcomes with regular, one-on-one intervention. Based on the age and ability of the tutee, I will customize instruction and style. After a bit of informal assessment and goal-setting with guardians, I will plan out sessions. I find a visual agenda for each session helps everyone stay on track. For primary students, it will be a mix of remedial skill practice (game-like, if appropriate) and assisted assignment completion. I like to structure sessions with a bit of fun at the end, such as a favorite book or educational game. For the older students, some remedial skill practice may be in order, but we will see what school or course work needs to be completed and plan accordingly to ensure much of it gets completed in session. If not all homework gets finished in our time together, I will do my best to make sure all tasks are understood for when the student is working independently.
