Experienced teacher offering study support and K-12 math, science, English, and Spanish tutoring.

Methodology

My teaching method as an academic tutor is centered around cultivating intrinsic motivation and leveraging students interests. I use research based methods for creating individualized study plans and skills. My pedagogy is student centered and rooted in compassion and rigor. Multiple intelligence theory, instructional scaffolding, and a strengths based approach inform my practice.

Background

I have a degree in Child Development and Spanish from Mills College and over 6 years of experience as an educator teaching various subjects in and out of the classroom. I completed two year teaching practicum at the elementary level for completion of my degree, followed by an intensive teacher training internship at the middle school level. After then working as an academic tutor and college prep mentor, I moved to Japan to teach English. I recently returned, and am now an instructor for students in residential mental health treatment. My professional goal is to become a certified literacy specialist for students of all ages.
