Do you need my help? I am a retired teacher of 30 years in Orange County. I taught English at the secondary level. During this time, many of my students demonstrated tremendous improvement in both their grades and scholastic test scores. I am of strong belief that if you attack your organizational skills, establish clearly defined goals for yourself, and learn some of the tricks associated with becoming a savvy test taker, you will instantly show tremendous improvement. That is the first step we will undertake. Then we will deal with each of your areas of difficulty.

As a team, we will work together to reach your goals. We will continually refer back to your goals that you have set for yourself, checking to see your progress. We will also integrate new goal affirmations that will be essential for your continued success. I will be there for you at all times. A strong effort from both of us will result in achieving the desired result that we both want for you.

Not only have I taught English for 30 years, but I also coached some of the most successful aquatic athletes in the world. Each of these swimmers set and followed their goals. Through hard work and continued undying dedication, goals and dreams were reached. World records, Olympic medals, and numerous national team championships. I know that we can be as successful if you are willing to work side by side with me. Hope to work with you soon.
