Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Phonics tutors in Irvine, CA
"As soon as I started working with kids I knew that was the missing piece! While I went back to school for elementary education, I was able to tutor and work with a variety of different age groups and levels. For tutoring I like to incorporate different ideas, activities, and even other subjects into the lesson. I feel sometimes it may be difficult for the student to understand and grasp hard concepts, but I help them by giving them visuals, getting them involved, and connecting the concepts to personal interests and familiar ideas. In my free time, I like to explore the city (it’s still very new to me!)." ...

"I love learning and teaching others. I have taught and tutored all subject areas as well as standardized test preparation, but reading and phonics are my favorite.

"Since then, I have worked with students as young as kindergarten all the way up to high school seniors. Over the years, I have learned that not everyone is as excited about school as I am, so I always try to connect the material to the students as much as possible. I am always willing to go that extra mile to reach my students in a way that they will understand the material and maybe even enjoy it! In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer, walking around the beach, exploring my new town, and reading a good book.."

"I also studied English literature, poetry, and creative writing. After growing up on the east coast in South Florida, then attending college in the Midwest, I've finally made it all the way to the west coast and am a recent transplant to Los Angeles. My tutoring experience started as far back as I can remember with my very own sister who is 4 years younger than me. I helped her with everything from fractions, to AP homework, to college applications and essays."

" I have also taught soccer at No. 1 Soccer Camps and have worked with kids from ages 8-18. The thing I like best about tutoring is when a student of mine gains the confidence to tackle and correctly answer a question they previously would not have been able to answer. In my free time I enjoy playing soccer, watching movies, reading, and cooking.."

"In case it wasn't clear, my interests span a pretty vast range and I love being able to pass that love of knowledge on to others. It's my personal philosophy that creativity and education go hand in hand, so I like to bring new ideas together during my lessons and challenge students to do the same. I believe creativity and imagination introduce the crucial element of passion into the learning process-- and let's be honest, what student is going to be mad about being "tricked" into having fun while learning? I've taught and tutored students of all ages for roughly four years; my specialty is writing and Language Arts, though I teach a diverse ...

I have mentored, tutored, and taught students of various ages and backgrounds all over the world for the last 8 years.
