...I was a Resource Specialist for a local school district for nearly twenty-two years. I worked with students in grades K through 6, and I most enjoyed teaching reading and writing. I believe that reading, writing, and speaking are the most important skills we can acquire, because they enable us to communicate with others.

I have taught English at a college in Oakland for 8 years. My students know me as supportive and process-oriented, but they also know I will get them where they want to go. Patience, caring, and adaptable-- these traits serve me well in relating to students and devising an individual way to teach them.

...Most people can master science and math subjects with a bit of help ? they just need motivation, explanations from someone familiar with the material, and a bit of practice. I can provide all three. I can also help students figure out how to succeed in college.
