My name is Francisco and I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst for both Sports Management and Business
Management. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst in 2007. I have a passion and strong dedication in sports as well as fitness
. During my four year at college, I served as a coach for an Amherst basketball
team at a High School level. As a coach, I made sure that the players were both successful on and off of the court, as their studies were as paramount as their success in the sport. Because I was a student, I am aware of how challenging it can be to be a student-athlete, but I am a great motivator, so where there is a will, there is a way! I am always sure I am molding people to perform at their highest potential and to the best of their ability. I have plenty of experience in many different areas of the sport and in college I was a marketing
specialist. I was responsible for organizing events such as, basketball tournaments where I could recruit more participants, as well as attracting more fans to the sport.
I served as an intern for Dan Duquette, former Red Sox General Manager, currently the General Manager for the Baltimore Orioles. I served as an instructor and a mentor for young children teaching them a variety of baseball
techniques and organizing pitching
contests to help strengthen their skills. I also was a volunteer at The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, where I worked on the campaigns for Comcast and ESPN, the worldwide leader in sports news.
As far as my fitness experience, at UMASS I was a gym supervisor as well as a fitness trainer. In High School, I was a track runner and one of my teammates was the fastest 2 mile runner in the country. I mention this because I was able to learn a lot from him, and at an early age I became his mentor where I would coach him and motivate him. I made him confident enough to break records and run the fastest times, and he did. His time was 8:49, which is a very impressive time to achieve. He later continued his achievements at the University of Georgetown where he broke most of the Freshmen records for a distance runner. As a runner myself, I too broke many records, however, due to injuries I was no longer able to continue the sport.
I have a lot of knowledge and I am willing to share my knowledge with anyone who wants to achieve goals in sports. I am confident I can provide a tutoring service that will get anyone where they want to be, and better than they think they can be.
