My focus is on English and writing, but I have tutored students of all ages in math, science, ESL, and SAT/test-specific subjects. My main concern is strengthening your knowledge and ability to the point where you no longer need tutoring by fostering healthy study habits and creating a long term education plan. I am a friendly and extremely patient tutor who truly enjoys working with his students.
I received my B.A. in Literature from UC Santa Cruz and my Masters in Creative Writing from Oregon State University. Along the way I have tutored independently as well as through tutoring programs like INTO-OSU, an immersion program for ESL students looking to apply to Oregon State, and Pleasanton Tutoring, a service providing tutoring for all ages in a wide variety of subjects.
My guiding philosophy toward education is: Practice, practice, practice. And patience. You have to believe you are capable of learning in order to achieve the success you want.
