Although I am an older tutor, I have 10 years of teaching experience at college preparatory schools and 20 years experience teaching at the junior college level and the university level. I worked in a private school during the last 8 years in which a quarter of the student body had learning differences ranging from dyslexia, dysgraphia, and attention deficit disorder. Many students also experienced organizational challenges too. I learned with the help of a learning specialist teaching methods to reach students with learning differences. I have considerable patience and the knack of finding alternative explanations to get a concept across.

My patience and optimism has made an impact on high school students, college students, and returning students. These are three testimonials:

These are excerpts from three emails at the end of a summer chemistry class at the College of San Mateo 2013.

This was written by a sophomore student attending Aragon High School in San Mateo

"Hello Dr. S.,

First off, I would like to thank you for this amazing summer class. Although it wan't something that I was excited about in the beginning, it quickly turned into a fun educational camp, if you will. Everything was fun and I just loved the spirit and energy you put into the class. I will surely miss you."

This was written by a sophomore student attending Hillsdale High School in San Mateo.

"Thanks for teaching the class! I learned a lot!"

This was written by a returning student interested in a career in pathology.

"Hello Professor,

I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed your class this summer semester and couldn't ask for a better instructor. I wish you all the best and would hope that we meet again in the coming semesters."
