My name is Mr. Richard C., the Education Coach. I call myself the Education Coach because this is my 17th year as an elementary school teacher with LAUSD and I have coached Summer Pro League Basketball (10+ years), as well as many years as a park and recreation coach of young children like yours. I feel there is a basic philosophy for teaching and coaching on any level, whether it's elementary academics or aspiring professional young people, and that is: Teaching Fundamentals Is Teaching Skills. Basically, if I teach the fundamentals of reading, i.e., letter sounds, putting sounds together to make a word, and syllabication (parts of a word), those fundamentals would be the basis of becoming a reader, therefore developing a skill to read. Likewise, if I teach the fundamentals of basketball to a player, his or her skill level would improve. In both instances, the confidence level of the reader or player will improve as they see their skill level improve. My 17 years as a teacher/coach has taught me how to be patient and understanding, as all children seem to pick up these skills at their own pace. The main thing is for them to get it. I can tutor elementary school kids (k-5) in any or all subjects. I can also help with P.E./sports training for young hoopsters. Let's talk and get your child the tutoring to help get them on the path to success!
