Qualifications & Experience

I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Communications; Journalism from California State University Fullerton. I have 9 years of extensive experience tutoring students of all ages. My tutoring experience dates back to when I was in high school tutoring younger students in different subjects. I believe all tutoring and teaching is an art form established by a unique personality. I believe in providing tutoring sessions in which I can incorporate concepts in a fun and concise manner. I have a broad conceptual understanding of mathematics, English and comprehension and strive to convey my love for teaching onto my students. My mission is to help you or your child succeed in the respective subjects, whether it is by helping you or your child with homework, projects or test prep. Progress and results are our main objectives during our sessions together.

Val is so wonderful with Denise. She's adaptive and if Denise wants to work on a certain subject or area she'll shift (within reason) with her to keep with her interest and stay educational. Denise counted to 100 for her first time (twice!) with Val today and she's still beaming!

Val has the patience of a Saint with my daughter and all of her little shenanigans. She's patient, kind and can/will adapt to make sure that each lesson she has is one of value!
