Dear Students:

Hello! I am available to visit your home, library, coffee shop, etc. to tutor grammar, junior and high school students. I am very reliable and passionate at what I do. My availability is on weekends and some week nights from 6:30pm - 8pm.

I have spent most of my career working in hi-tech companies in Silicon Valley in Marketing, Market Research, Business Development, Software Development and Manufacturing. I have a Masters in Business Administration from Santa Clara University and a BA Applied Mathematics from UC Berkeley.

I hold a California Secondary Education Clear Teaching Credential in Mathematics (San Jose State University) and taught for approximately five years in public high schools. I have taught at Del Mar High School (Campbell, CA), Scotts Valley High School (Scotts Valley, CA), Anzar High School (San Juan Bautista, CA) and Lycee Poudriere (Mamou, Guinea, West Africa). My favorite classroom memory was teaching high school mathematics (in French) in Guinea, West Africa, for the Peace Corps. The students were bright and highly motivated, but the country was so poor that there were few materials in the classroom. Even a piece of chalk was a luxury and the "black board" was a slab of concrete painted black and the sun's glare would always make the board hard to read. Teaching in Africa taught me how to adapt my style to be effective in difficult learning environments.

I look forward to working with you to help make you a better student.

Thank you for your interest!
