I have been working in the Kalamazoo area as a substitute teacher for nearly ten years. I enjoy working with youths of all ages.

While I specialize in math and science, I am also a fairly accomplished writer. I have taught 1st grade math through 12th grade calculus, however I did not advance much beyond Calculus 2. I am fairly comfortable with single variable differentiation and integration, but my knowledge of multi-variable differential equations is limited.

I feel comfortable teaching subject matters such as physics and earth science, but I also can teach grammar and writing.

Typically when I teach and tutor, I strive to instill independence in the students that I am working with. There is an old saying, "If you give a student the answers he needs, he'll learn and thrive for a day. If you guide a student through the process of FINDING the answers for himself, he'll learn and thrive for a lifetime."

I would be happy to arrange an appointment with your son or daughter to help him or her become a more successful student.

Thank you for your consideration.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.

Algebra 1

I have frequently taught algebra in the schools when I substitute teach, so I am familiar with many of the misconceptions that students have when it comes to this subject.
