Children and education are the center of my life. In addition to being the father of a young daughter, I have worked as a paraprofessional and substitute teacher for over eight years. Much of this work experience has been within the special education curriculum and I have worked with students whose cognitive abilities range from toddler to high school level academics. This has allowed me to learn how each student's needs are very different as well as how they respond to instruction. I always try to meet students with where they are at and slowly bring them step by step to where they can learn material on their own. I can be sensitive, playful, or a task master as the situation and student requires. Through my intuitive approach to teaching I have been able to help even severe/moderately handicapped students understand more advanced topics (for their ability level) such as pre-algebra.
Being a lifelong learner, my educational background is broad and I am able to draw on this experience as the situation calls for it. My undergraduate degrees were in English Literature and Rhetoric as well as a host of extra coursework in pedagogy and the arts. I have been very active within the arts and have done freelance work with video production, photography, and music production. I am also dedicated to the healing arts and hold certificates in yoga and Ayurveda. I have worked with numerous individuals within these modalities including running classes for high school students. I find my yoga and meditation practices help keep my mind clear in perceiving students unique needs and help me to more deeply connect with students.
I look forward to using my talents to help your student become more confident with what is already inherent in them. I truly believe education is about drawing what is already in the student out into the world. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you're interested in my services or have any questions about my background!
I have played in bands on and off for over 14 years and am a jack of all trades on instruments. I have recorded both myself and others within home studio environments using a cross range of platforms including Ableton Live, Cubase, FL Studio, and analog mixers.
I currently do freelance work and produce audio segments for on-line projects in my free time.
I have worked for eight years as a paraprofessional directly providing both classroom and one-on-one tutoring support within Special Education classrooms. This has included students with ADD/ADHD, Aspergers, downs syndrome, emotional disturbances, autism spectrum, and various forms of learning disabilities/cognitive/mobility delays.
I have also worked for a private company using behavioral analysis techniques to aid mainstream students.
I hold a 500 hour teaching certificate from the Iyengar Institute of San Francisco and apprenticed for two years with their faculty. I also hold an Ayurvedic Health Educator certificate from the California College of Ayurveda ( yoga's holistic medicine) and am currently study meditation and advanced yogic practices under Shri Anandi Ma. I have taught all types of people within yoga studios, privates, and public school environments.
