My name is Tiffani. I am currently a special education teacher at an elementary school in the East Bay. I have just returned from teaching in New Orleans charter schools for the last two years. I began teaching in December 2009 in Northern California. I taught in California until June of 2013, when I moved to New Orleans.

Tiffani rocks! Very patient we love her. She's not only helping my child ecxel accademically but she was able to help me navigate my parental rights and laws in reference to special education.
Getting my son to read and do homework used to be a chore. I hated the person I was when trying to help him. We would sit for hours and go back and forth over the same problems and it always ended the same way with us both being frustrated and him not quite grasping the full benifit of doing his work. I knew that if he continued to work with me I was going to have a child who hated school simply based on the fact that he hated homework and didn't feel "smart" because homework sessions were more like an emotional battle then a learning experience. After my son came home and said he wanted to be home schooled because he wasn't smart, I knew I needed to make a change.
Since we have been meeting with her he can't wait to sit down and get started on his reading(my main goal is to get his Lexie level up and increase his flow) .
Her patience, personality and senserity makes her a great tutor. Tiffani genuinely loves what she does and you will see it in your child's academic achievement
