I have worked at Tacoma Community College for six years; when asked to describe what I tutor by a student, he responded by saying, "he DOESN'T tutor higher level biology or business classes if he can help it, but he does just about everything else." I have held a Master Tutor Certification with the College Learning and Reading Association since 2099. I specialize in technical writing in the sciences and psychology, focusing on APA style.

I've worked in a number of classroom setting at the middle, high and college level, with a focus on students with learning disabilities and other challenges, working with students not just to understand the concepts of the course they are currently working on, but how to study more effectively.
