Currently, I teach Kindergarten to a classroom full of amazing 5 and 6-year-olds. Previously, I taught Fourth Grade in the Cupertino Union School District, TK in Melo Park, and 4th grade for 5 years in the Greater Los Angeles area. Most of my experience is working with students in a self contained classroom. Having worked with a variety of students who have different learning styles and strengths, I am very comfortable developing and using various strategies to assist students in their education.
My specialties are working with students with ADD/ADHD and English Language Learners. In addition, I assist my students and tutoring clients improve their writing and literacy skills and reading fluency. My goal as a teacher and tutor is to help out families and their children through developing better study skills, positive learning experiences, and self-esteem through scaffolding learning and providing a supportive and enriching environment. I was born to teach!
