...My philosophy is that all students can learn, once the material is presented in a meaningful way, that connects with their experience and previous knowledge. Sometimes that means we have to go back to re-learn foundational principles to make those connections and build upon them. I currently work as a 7th grade Learning Center teacher at Francis Parker.
I am currently a Spanish/ELD(ESL) teacher in the Capistrano Unified School District. I earned a Master's Degree in Bilingual Education from Columbia University in New York and an undergraduate degree in Spanish from Boston College. I also studied at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Spain and worked and taught in Bolivia while serving in the Peace Corps.

...I am willing to be flexible to accommodate your individual needs. I can work with individuals or in small groups. I like to take great care of my students.
...I can help your student use context clues within questions, make math specific vocabulary cards to better understand the material. I will also teach addition/subtraction techniques and practice math facts at the beginning of each lesson. I will find your child's area of need and improve that before moving forward.
...Microbiology studies organisms too small to see with the naked eye. It also examines cell biology, host defenses, and immunity. There are applications to public health and studying disease.
