I am currently attending Mesa Community College. I'm majoring in Elementary Education. I am very good at working with children. I used to babysit occasionally growing up, and when I was older I would watch my friends children from time to time. I was also a member of the "Big Brothers" group. As you can tell from my major choice, teaching and helping children is very important to me because they all deserve a great education and a great life from someone who truly wants to see them succeed ... and kids always seem to like me. I have references from my interactions with children as well; it seems like everyone always says, "You're gonna be a great dad", and I can't wait to have children of my own. I am a volunteer at Banner Desert Medical Center also, so you can tell I really enjoy helping people.

I have tested into Honors English, and out of Reading, which means that I don't have to take any reading classes because my reading comprehension is college level. I have also tested into intermediate algebra. I prefer to tutor in English and Reading, and teach sports. I have helped some with tutoring over the years, but never professionally. I don't drive so would meet you at a local library, Dobson Ranch Library in Mesa, or another if convenient. A quiet coffee shop or cafe would work as well, if you know of one between our locations. We could also meet at your home if it's close enough to where I am. I am also open to online tutoring, if we could work something out. I look forward to hearing from you.

Baseball

I played baseball for about 15 years growing up. I was a pitcher, and 3rd baseman. I was always one of the best players in our local league. I can teach anyone things needed to improve them, whether it's fielding, hitting, or throwing.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently attending college to be an Elementary School teacher. I have taken classes that teach me how to teach younger kids the subjects of elementary school. I'm currently an Instructional Assistant at an elementary school, in which I had to pass a ParaPro exam to be able to be considered a highly qualified teaching assistant, allowed to instruct the class by myself if it was so needed. The only difference with me not being a teacher, is having my degree.

English

I am currently attending Mesa Community College and I am in honors level English classes. I've always had a very good understanding of the English language, all aspects of it. I can help anyone learn the basics all the way up to high school level grammar, vocabulary and writing.

General Computer

I have been into computers since age 12, about 15 years, ever since my family got our first computer. I have taken computer classes in high school, but have mostly taught myself over the years. I considered getting my Microsoft Certification until I decided to do something else with my life. I can help teach basic Windows usage, word processing, typing skills, and a few other things.

Golf

I have played golf since I was 8 years old, for almost 20 years. I am about a 10 handicap. I can teach most anyone the basics to start and help them get better, adjusting things in their swings and setup that will help them.

Grammar

In school, my best subject was always English. I am currently attending Mesa Community College and I am in honors level English classes. I can teach kids how to sound out words and understand the basics of grammar to understand which types of words to use, and when. Out of three papers I wrote in my English Comp class last semester, I had a total of five grammatical errors.

Microsoft Windows

I have been into computers since age 12, about 15 years, ever since my family got our first computer. I have taken computer classes in high school, but I have mostly taught myself over the years. I considered getting my Microsoft Certification until I decided to do something else with my life. I can help teach basic Windows usage, word processing, typing skills, and a few other things.

Phonics

In school, my best subject was always English. I am currently attending Mesa Community College and I am in honors level English classes. I've always had a great understanding of the English language, and every aspect of it. I can teach kids how to sound out words, understand the basics of phonics, and teach them the patterns of sound and spelling to help them understand how and why words are spelled like they are. Also to help them identify these patterns as to be able to deduce how to spell and write other words based on these patterns.

Poker

I have been playing poker for about 10 years. I have never played professionally, but I used to go to the casinos and play in the cash games and do fairly well when I lived in MI. I can help with the basics.

Prealgebra

I was always very good in math growing up, always being in the highest math classes available. I started algebra in 6th grade. I tested into college algebra for when I start school at MCC. I believe I can teach anyone to understand the basics of math, up to solving equations.

Reading

I've always had a high level of reading comprehension. When I was 5, I tested to a high school level. After taking my entrance test for Mesa Community College, I tested out of reading, meaning I don't have to take any reading classes because my reading comprehension is at or above college level. I have tutored in reading, recently, with much success.

Spelling

In school, my best subject was always English. I am currently attending Mesa Community College and I am in honors level English classes. I can teach kids how to sound out words, and the basics of spelling, for them to understand sounds and patterns.

Swimming

I was in the advanced swimming classes with 14 and 15 year olds when I was 5 years old. I was on the swim team for a couple years when I was 8 and 9 and was one of the best swimmers in the state in my age level at that time. I can teach anyone the basics and proper form of all the strokes.

Vocabulary

I've always been very good with words. Even as a young child I had a very high reading and vocabulary level. I can teach middle school and younger different types and meanings of words.

Writing

I am currently attending Mesa Community College and I am in honors level English classes. I've always had a very good understanding of the English language, all aspects of it. I can help anyone learn the basics all the way up to high school level grammar, vocabulary and writing. I wrote 3 papers for English this last semester and got 95%, 100%, and 96%.
