Hello, my name is Manuel and I just moved to South Bend with my wife and our baby daughter. I was an elementary school teacher in Los Angeles for 11 years, having taught 3rd grade, 5th grade, and literature and language arts to 6th-8th graders. I also taught summer school classes to kindergartners and 4th graders. I am very likable, easy to get along with, and I believe I am very good at teaching (and I have letters of recommendation from my principal, vice principal, and parents upon request). I have worked with disadvantaged kids and kids that come from wealthy families, and everything in between. I majored in education in college (where I tutored to help pay for expenses) and I have a license to teach in both California and Indiana.

I think it's imperative that children have fun while learning, so I always try to inject humor to every single lesson that I teach. I also speak Spanish and I am an avid sports enthusiast. I have not been able to get a job teaching here in South Bend yet, but I am itching to get to work, so I am looking for tutoring jobs in the area. I am willing to teach any age level, but my expertise is in kindergarten through 8th grade.

If you choose to hire me, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed! Thank you and have a great day!

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.

Basketball

I have played basketball all my life, and it is my favorite sport to coach. I have been to numerous coaching clinics and have seen some of the greatest living college coaches speak and give coaching advice. I have coached club basketball, and high school basketball as well. I took a girls high school team in Los Angeles, Bishop Conaty, to the CIF finals in 2006, the furthest the school has ever been. I have also privately coached kids in the Los Angeles area.

Elementary Math

I have taught math from Kindergarten all the way up to 8th grade. I specialize in teaching 3rd-5th grade math, as I taught at least one of those grades for 8 straight years.

Soccer

I played soccer from the age of 4 to my current age of 37. I played travel, club, high school, and a year of junior college. I have also coached youth boys and girls soccer, from young children to 8th grade middle school soccer.
