I have a Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of California Santa Cruz and a teaching certificate from London Metropolitan University to teach 5-11 year old children. I have worked with children in a wide range of jobs ever since I was a teenager and have been involved in tutoring Elementary School children since I was in High School. I have taught and tutored Elementary age children in all academic subjects, including Math, Reading, Phonics, and Writing, and I have particular experience working with children with special needs. I love working with children in a one on one environment where I can build a strong personal relationship with them and tailor my lessons to their individual needs. I spent the last four years living in London working as an au pair, training as a teacher, and then working for two years as a substitute teacher and one on one tutor of children who could not attend mainstream schools. I loved the opportunity to live and work abroad and travel during my vacations, but I’m now happy to be back in my hometown, closer to my family, and living in the beautiful San Francisco Bay area. In my free time I like to read, folk dance, and hike or bike in the East Bay parks.
