Qualifications & Experience

I am currently a middle school ELA/ELD teacher with a deep understanding and vast experience with the Common Core State Standards. I love to focus on various progress monitoring techniques and tools for students. They will review and reflect on their academic decisions, identify problems, and revise goals throughout the learning process. My lessons involve an extensive writing process that allows students to engage with the text (close reading, summarize the text, critically analyze the text, synthesize information from multiple texts, and cite evidence from the text). We will focus greatly on academic vocabulary so that students will be able to collaborate, create, and communicate with their peers in the classroom.

Ms. Koga was a big help and support especially in learning. She knew how to break down the directions to make it easier to understand for me. Her lessons are really engaging and motivating. Ms. Koga really took her time and taught me new lessons.

Yuria always helped me find a way to make English more understandable. I think that Yuria's lessons were very engaging.

The way she helps me is that she explains the lessons so that I am able to do things on my own. She made her lessons really fun. In high school if I need help I will come and ask her for help.

Yuria was a huge help because she taught me things that I didn't know. I was able to understand all the things she taught us, she explained lessons very well. Her lessons were so engaging and I was always motivated. Sometimes the work was difficult, but she'd always make the lessons fun. Clearly I miss Ms. Koga; she is the best.
