I have been tutoring or teaching for slightly more than 19 years. Previously I have tutored or taught PSAT, SAT, ACT, GED, GRE, English, Spanish, and Latin, all math through introductory calculus, an introduction to Thomistic Metaphysics, European history, and Christology. I attended Plan II at the University of Texas at Austin and have a BA in Spanish Literature and a BS in Mathematics from the same University of Texas. I have done work in philosophy and Latin at the University of Dallas. I have an MA in Sacred Theology from Ave Maria University and am a PhD candidate in Historical Theology at Catholic University of America, where I am very slowly writing a dissertation on tradition in the thought of Melchior Cano, O.P. My scores on relevant standardized tests are excellent. I have taught at three different high schools in Texas and Wisconsin and one college.

I am interested in crafting with my pupils (and their parents as the case may be) a reasonable plan to achieve their goals; please note that some goals are really just wishes, and there might be no reasonable plan to achieve such a goal. In that case, I would work with student to develop a more reasonable goal. In any case, I am demanding of my pupils but on my part give the necessary effort in return. In addition to competency, I try to provide good example to my pupils. Sometimes a tutor/pupil relationship does not work, and if I were to determine that I am not the best one to help you, I would end our relationship so that you do not waste your money and are able to get the assistance for which you are looking. I work best with students 14 and up but have tutored as young as 10.

I am willing to send a more detailed résumé to parties who have expressed interest in working with me. I am not trained to work with students who have anything beyond a very mild learning disability. If your child has such, it would be to your benefit find another tutor. Finally, I do not schedule any session on Sunday, and a minimum session is one hour; sessions will not be scheduled for less than one hour, and at least one hour will always be charged.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I am an ABD in Historical Theology from Catholic University of America. I currently teach Christology at a small college. While my Greek is rusty, my Latin, for the Vulgate, is good. So long as the student neither demands only original language examination nor that I put to the side my Catholicism in the Bible study, I should be able to help all but the very advanced student.

Public Speaking

I have been a college instructor for the past five semesters, during which my classes have a large lecture component. I also was as acting Academic Dean, a position in which I had to speak to groups of students and faculty. Finally, although long ago, I was specifically trained to speak publicly as a young man, and I engaged in a few competitions, in which I did well.

Religion

This is somewhat variable, but I am ABD in historical theology and was also a professor of theology at Fisher More College.

Very nice young man! — Albert was right on time and ready to work when he got here. He answered all my questions as a parent, then I left him to work with my son. He will be back in a couple of days, and I am confident after what I've seen so far that we're on the right track. The whole process of finding and getting him here could not have been easier for me as the customer. ...
