with borrowing, addition with regrouping, and multiplication. She lives in the
Glenview neighborhood of Oakland and is looking to tutor over the summer.
She was a 3rd grade teacher for four years and will be completing her first
year teaching first grade this June. She can tutor students,grades K-5, in the
subjects of writing, grammar, phonics, reading, and/or math. She has access
to different manipulatives and supplemental materials that can be useful for
struggling students or students who just need review.
She has excellent references. . . I am one of them!

available to meet with your child in her Oakland home, or in
your home. She is well worth the money you will spend to
help your child's education.
