My name is Tony and I am here to offer my services as an English tutor, fitness/snowboard instructor/boxing and kick-boxing instructor. Based on my skills and experience with people, I am confident that I can help you achieve your goals in one of my areas of expertise. I lead a very active lifestyle that includes trail running, surfing, Aikido and boxing. I have held positions that have required me to devise progressive lesson plans and ensure that students were able to safely adhere to them. I have taught as a level two certified snowboard instructor at Vail/BeaverCreek Ski Resorts for seven years.
I have given boxing lessons and personal training sessions as a certified personal trainer at Equinox Fitness Center in Sunset Plaza. I have also held cardio kick-boxing lessons at The Hollywood Boxing Gym where I was an amateur boxer and professional sparring partner for two years. In addition, I spent two years on Billy Blanks World Tae Kwon Do fight team and trained with him in Sherman Oaks. I love working with kids as well. I also worked as a summer camp counselor at Cottontail Ranch formerly located in the Malibu Canyons.
More recently I have been able to build a list of repeat students through an online teaching program via Skype and Voip phone with the YBM SISA Educational Company as a teacher of English to Korean students ranging from ages 10-50. I have a magnetic personality that allows me to establish a rapport with my students and to understand what methods I can utilize to help them achieve their language and fitness goals. I recently spent a year in Tokyo Japan teaching English. I speak conversational Japanese and basic Spanish and I love helping people attain their goals.
I worked three years as a certified personal trainer for Equinox Fitness Center at the Sunset Plaza location. I currently lead a very active life style that includes trail running, boxing and horse back riding. My diet is very clean and I am a walking billboard for the effectiveness of my current training system.
I played four years in the United States Air-Force on a base league team in Colorado that made it to the championship game two years in a row. During that two year run, I was the leading receiver on offense in total yards and 13 touchdowns in an 11 game regular season. I was also the leading cornerback in interceptions on defense. Due to these statistics and a 4.3 40 yard dash time. I was invited to training camp for an arena football league team in Kansas City. I did not take the opportunity to report to training camp but it was still nice to be invited.
I have trained in several different styles of martial arts since the age of 15 and I continue to train in boxing and kick-boxing. I have been in Tokyo Japan training in Aikido, studying Japanese and teaching English for the past year. I was also a member of Billy Blanks World Tae Kwon Do fight team back when his studio was on Beverly Glen and Ventura Blvd. I taught kick-boxing lessons when I was a trainer at Equinox and I was a sparring partner in a pro-camp at the Hollywood Boxing Gym.
