I started teaching in private schools. I spent a few years teaching at Juvenile Hall, the boys' and girls' ranches, nearly every continuation school in the county, and currently work as a home/hospital teacher for ESUHSD. A home/hospital teacher is really disguised as a tutor who prepares coursework for students who cannot attend their "home" school.

The home/hospital teacher is responsible for every subject (except art and lab sciences), every grade level (freshman to seniors), every day, and every medical reason imaginable (pregnancy, auto accidents, and illnesses), plus the occasional scenario where the student is pending expulsion and needs to maintain his/her credits.

My goal as a teacher is to teach students to "learn how to learn." You'll surprise yourself with how many tools you already have but have yet to put those tools to work. Math is the only subject where you are guaranteed to get an "A". Let me fulfill your need to succeed in math.

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.
