I have been teaching and tutoring since 1994 for various periods of time. I prefer tutoring because I realize that most students need more individualized attention than they can get in a classroom arena. I have been successful because I can relate each student's life experiences to the material we are covering. By analyzing what the student already knows, I can bring familiar examples to the session, no matter what the subject. Students usually know more than they think they do, and it is my job to show them that they CAN grasp the concepts we are studying. I welcome a background check, and currently hold an AZ Dept of Public Safety Fingerprint Clearance Card.

I have taught and/or tutored for Pima Community College Neighborhood Centers, various high schools and middle schools in the Tucson area, and have tutored Pima CC and U of Phoenix students in subjects up to College Algebra. References can be provided in the subject area you are requesting.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored K-6th for the past 3 years. Most of my work has been with 1st graders who haven't grasped reading. There are many reasons why they just 'aren't getting it' and I can help to determine where their problems lie and what we need to do to fix them. I am sure I could help your grandson progress sufficiently to be on a par with his class.

Microsoft Access

I have built Access databases for over 5 years. I designed relational databases, built the tables in Excel then transferred them to the database. I decide the correct metadata to employ to make the database easily searchable and user friendly. I can help you with any Access database applications you may need.
