My first very successful experience tutoring was during high school. The son of a family friend was doing poorly in junior high school in math and English. On a volunteer basis, I helped him with these academic areas and he was able to improve his grades from failing levels to A's and B's in a relatively short period of time.
Recently, I've been tutoring grade 4 - 12 students in LAUSD schools in math and English. In addition to proficiency in these and some other subjects, I am adept at establishing a good rapport with each of my students and families. I am able to recognize when there may be external factors getting in the way of a student's concentration, and can address their concerns, thereby minimizing or eliminating the obstacle.
My most extensive training and experience has been in the fields of psychology and social work. I have a PhD level of education in the field of clinical psychology.
