Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I am patient, dedicated, and experienced. I focus on writing, oral communication, with basic skills like grammar along with your individual abilities and requirements. For test preparation, I focus on improving your fundamentals, content knowledge, test-taking techniques, overcoming unique hurdles such as exam anxiety. I have successfully worked with individuals preparing for the CBEST, GED, TOEFL, and SAT (Reading and Writing).

I offer individual, small and large group workshops, and Skype lessons. Whether you are looking to communicate better in English, write business emails and/or business plans, improve your conversation skills, reduce your accent, pass professional exams, or get better grades, I will work with you to identify gaps and improve your skills. I look forward to working with you.

I am currently a substitute teacher (have worked in a variety of classroom settings, long-term assignments, elementary, middle school, and high school). I am pursuing a Single Subject English Teaching Credential and have passed the CBEST and CSET English exam.
