I'm a former professional baseball player, specializing in connecting math, science, language arts, history, COMPUTERS, at all levels of students, with music, athletics, talented students and "At Risk" students! I am the most interesting and most diversely talented teacher/tutor you will ever meet! I make lessons fun and interesting as well as very productive. The only thing I request is that you give me some time to prepare my lessons so that we are busy the entire time and things don't get tedious. I've worked with students all over the world, taught students from 3rd grade to college levels, and have been very successful with 99% of them. I'm energetic, enthusiastic, and driven to help you succeed!
I have been a teacher for 15 years and have a current multiple subject teaching credential in the state of California. Many of my high school and college student athletes often needed tutoring after school and so this is how it began for me. As I taught more at the middle school level in math and science, I found several methods to work particularly well in math. positive reinforcement, carefully guided steps in solving equations, and links to practical use in the real world. I spend a strong amount of time in testing techniques, since so many exams are multiple choice these days... I also have mastered public speaking, writing, vocabulary with many students for presentation purposes. I will often give written feedback so that parents clearly understand the focus of each lesson and where emphasis may be necessary through test evaluations and analysis.
I am ALWAYS open to feedback and appreciate follow up with parents after each lesson. I hope this lends a clear understanding of the wide range of capability that I have gained over the years.
