For many years, I have been involved with tutoring, coaching baseball and mentoring students. The best part about teaching is being able to help students succeed in subjects they believed they were either powerless or not smart enough to succeed in.

I absolutely enjoy mentoring students as well. I am deeply grateful for the mentors in my life and thoroughly enjoy sharing wisdom gleaned from others.

I hope to tutor you or your student into a person with better vision, direction and purpose for themselves. I desire to help you understand the problems in front of you and hope to empower your inner curiosity to learn. Lastly, I hope to impart a true passion for learning and life.

I have degrees in economics from UC Berkeley and University of San Francisco. I love tutoring SAT MATH, Writing and Statistics.

There are many great WyzAnt tutors here. I hope you find the right one for yourself or your son or daughter.

**My rates are always negotiable to meet your budget.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Econometrics

I have taken undergraduate and graduate classes in Econometrics. I have learned how to use STATA and am familiar with Applied Econometrics, Financial Econometrics and regressions.

Elementary Math

I am currently tutoring six students in basic pre-Algebra concepts, basic Algebra and more advanced topics.

Many of my students have struggled with basic multiplication tables. I often use games to have kids attain lightening quick speeds with times tables.

I prefer having the student explain their thought process step by step on challenging problems. Learning by doing is one of the most effective means of retaining knowledge.

Prealgebra

I am currently tutoring six students ranging from 5th to 8th grade in basic pre-Algebra concepts, basic Algebra and more advanced topics relevant for elementary aged students.

Many of my students have struggled with basic multiplication tables. I often use games to have kids attain lightening quick speeds with times tables.

When going over problems that the student has struggled with, I always have them attempt the problem on the board while explaining their logic to me at each step. I believe they'll hold onto knowledge if they learn by doing.

Religion

I have attended USF, a Jesuit Catholic institution for higher learning. I have attended classes, which teach the Greek New Testament, hermeneutics and homiletics.

I have had the opportunity to extensively read the Old and the New Testament, give/receive bible instruction and am presently committed to learning the Hebraic Old Testament.

STATA

I have an undergraduate degree in Economics from UC Berkeley and a graduate degree in Economics from U of San Francisco. At these schools I have been exposed to the intricacies of STATA. I have learned how to perform normal regressions and advanced ones like Probit and Logit. Additionally, I have learned how to upload data from .csv sources and have cleaned data before running regressions.

Best Tutoring I've Ever Recieved! — Sid was one of the best tutors I've ever had. He was patient, polite and knowledgeable. I had tried at least three tutors before him, but it seemed none of them were the right fit. Sid was conveniently close to my home and offered some great assistance in studying for the SAT in a little over a week. His methods were carried on to the ACT, and I'm happy to say that I was completely confident takin ...
