You need a helping hand with school. I get it. I know what it's like to be behind in one's lessons, scrambling to catch up.
After graduating from St. Stephen's Prep High School outside Washington D.C., I spent 4 years at Tulane University graduating with a Bachelor's Degree. This year alone I've logged in 100+ hours for the the Academic Advantage Tutoring Academy helping struggling GUSD students with Math & English. I'm very proficient in Mathematics & English Language Arts (among many other subjects) and have a wealth of expertise tutoring 3rd through 12th Graders. I have a gift for taking difficult to comprehend concepts and turning them into easy-to-understand, appliable lessons.
From an early age my father distilled a solid work ethic and stellar study habits in me. As far back as middle school I was required to wear a coat & tie every day and say "Yes Sir & Yes Ma'am". My schooling's taught me not only great academia but great life lessons as well. I'm compassionate, motivated and committed to providing you and/ or your child with the inspiration and tools s/he needs to make it through with flying colors!
I grew up drawing and illustrating for newspapers and yearbooks in both high school and college. After earning my B.A., I took several advanced courses from renowned teachers such as Karl Gnass (the resident Life Drawing guru for Dreamworks and Disney cartoonists) at the American Animation Institute.
My current day job is substitute teacher for Glendale Unified School District ~ mainly Elementary Schools. Earlier this year I worked for Academic Advantage tutoring Math & English to mainly 3rd thru 6th graders. I also have a son in the 3rd grade and assist him with his homework on an as needed basis. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from Tulane University in New Orleans.
Starting at age fifteen, I went to Toastmasters meetings with my father and participated in multiple impromptu short speeches. I took Public Speaking in college and received an 'A'. I ran for public office about two years ago and had to give both rehearsed and impromptu speeches in multiple forums and sometimes live local television. I've also performed Stand-Up comedy on and off through the years. More recently I'm employed part time as a Substitute Teacher where much of my job is speaking to the class. I'm very comfortable with public speaking and have a flair for it.
I studied rhythm guitar & music theory for about ten years and worked in nightclubs for about 5 years singing & playing guitar. I've written about 100 original songs and put 10 of those on a cd. My songwriting methods are various. Sometimes it comes from thinking up a song title or a phrase. Often it comes from thinking up a nice melodic hook then - using basic guitar chords - building a whole song around it: Verse, Chorus, Bridge and even the Intro & Tag.
