Teaching people to read and to write in English is a passion of mine, I really love it! I am currently involved as a tutor in a volunteer Adult Literacy program in South San Francisco for 1 year now, and I absolutely enjoy working One-On-One with my students in their home, or in locations of their choosing where they are most comfortable. I am very flexible with my schedule, I am extremely patient, and I can accommodate evening or daytime learners. It is true that I am fairly new to the tutoring field, but I bring excellent verbal, written, and computer communication skills with me. I am a life long native of California where I have lived with my loving wife of 31 years, and in that time, we have raised our two beautiful daughters to become vibrant members of the community! I speak English fluently, and I have a firm grasp of English idioms and terminology that people use everyday. I love teaching, and with a motivated student I know there is nothing we can not achieve! I enjoy giving my students the full benefit of my skills when the student is active and engaged. I believe it is never too late to learn to read or write and become a full member of our engaged society. I also encourage my students to communicate with me via e-mail and I will answer lesson related questions anytime at no additional charge usually within 24 hours if not sooner.

I can meet students in their home, or in settings of their choosing such as a Library or Coffee Shop as long as the setting is a suitable learning environment.

I Hope to become more established as a tutor in the future, I invite and encourage you to call me for any of your learning needs in the San Francisco, or North Peninsula area.

I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to serve you in my own way, with a subject that I love!

Thanks for considering me as a possible tutor, it would be my honor to help you in any way that I can!
