Tutor in Menifee, California
I am a certified teacher and tutor. I have been tutoring in the area since 2002. I have two bachelor's degrees and a master's. I know a lot of the families in the area, especially in Lake Elsinore. I am an excellent teacher and can provide references. However, Lake Elsinore is not the only city I work in. I also have children that I teach in Perris, Moreno Valley, Romoland, Menifee, Canyon Lake, etc. I am open to suggestions if you live in another location.
All of my children have done especially well. I have worked frequently with children who don't speak English, or know very little English, Math, Language Arts, Phonics, Etc. In my ten years experience I have only had one kid that I could not turn grades around for and that was because he was just completely unwilling! :)
I love to teach. I can come to your home and bring all my own supplies. If you would like, you may also use my home is Quail Valley if that is easier for you. I can travel on dirt roads to more isolated areas of these cities without a problem.
My goal is not simply to help them complete their day to day assignments, but to structure and guide them to make the decisions that will put them in the best position to graduate ahead of the rest and streamline them into college. I have been accomplishing this for several years. This is not only my job, it is my passion.
In addition to my multiple-subject teaching credential, I also have my teaching credential in special education. As well as, a certification as an autism specialist. This allows me to identify not only a child's possible learning deficiencies, but to have the skills to teach students with the special needs. I don't believe in simply showing up and asking for a student's homework. I provide all my own learning materials, visual , work sheets, pens, pencils, erasers, etc. I also have awards for the kids so they enjoy positive reinforcement as they reach the various learning goals.
Due to the fact that I offer more of planned education enrichment, I have continued my education and received two bachelors degrees and a masters degree. These credentials came at a price, so I have to consider how much my customized education plan is worth. At this time, in order to be competitive in the market with other certified and experienced tutors, I have a standard rate of $25 per hour if you live within 20 miles of my home. If you are beyond 20 miles, i adjust it to $30 per hour. That helps with the increase in gas which we have all felt lately.
I understand this price does not always fall into a person's budget. That doesn't mean you cannot afford to get your son some basic help. If you feel that your son/daughter may not need a guided education plan, you may want to consider basic tutoring from an non-credentialed tutor. Often times there are high school students that will work part time and help your son with his homework.
Again thank you for your interest. If you decide that a less qualified tutor fits better into your budget at this, there are some good tutors out there. Please take the time to call their references and review what credentials they may have. Most importantly, watch them with your child for at least 2 full sessions. You want to insure that the tutor provides quality instruction, but you also want to insure that your son's personality will work with the tutor you have.
I try always to be available to help every child that needs help. If you would like to talk about what specific education I can offer you son, please don't hesitate to contact me.
