Hello there! My name is Jimmy, I am a baseball coach at Sage Creek High School in Carlsbad, CA as well as a student going after my teaching certification. A little background on me, I played baseball at the college level and afterwards played two seasons professionally. I have worked mostly with athletes not only on the field, but in the classroom.
I take great pride in my player's academics. We do study hall every day before practice, and I am actively involved in tutoring as well as helping with college prep. It is a requirement of my players to maintain high great point averages. My philosophy has always been that after school activities are rewards for working hard in the classroom.
When it comes to teaching, tutoring, mentoring, I like to use real world explanations to help understand the given topic. When we sit down to look at homework, I like to go through and do one problem by myself and explain what I am doing on each step. After that, it's the students turn with guidance by myself. From there I determine whether or not to continue with step by step guidance or ease back a little and see what is being comprehended.
I am a young guy with lots of energy! I am very patient when it comes to classwork, and am proud of every person I work with when things start to click.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

My original major in college was engineering, after transferring I switched majors to pursue a degree in mathematics. I have been tutoring the baseball players in my program during study hall sessions mainly in mathematics, anywhere from geometry to calculus. I am very comfortable with teaching algebra, as it was the easiest math subject for me to comprehend, and I like to use examples using real world problems.
I have a bachelors degree in mathematics, and a fun fact is I did not miss a single math problem on the SAT
