About Herbert

I have taught Economics at El Camino College and Cal State University Dominguez Hills in the MBA program and the Georgian Institute of Public Policy. I like teaching Economics and take time to explain concepts, provide simple real life examples of how to apply economic principles in every day life and business decision making. I like people and make my lessons interesting to students new to the study of Economics. I thought German to US Army soldiers and Officers in Germany for several years and taught German one on one in the US. I am a native German tutor that concentrates lessons on useful conversational German for students and travelers. I am a student of US History and provide interesting sidelights of history to help students to put historical events into a real life context. As a teacher of Finance and Algebra I explain mathematical and financial concepts with a view toward decision making in business and personal investment strategies.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra to 8th grade and HS students over the years and have a good one on one style with students. I teach the concepts to students with practical examples that young students can understand, comprehend and retain.

American History

I am a student of American History and continue to study and read about our nation and its development. My economics background helps me to put America's development in a more practical context that students find useful. Having lived in other countries and cultures gives me a more global view of US History that gives students a wider understanding of the place of the US in the world.

Business

I have an MA degree in economics and an AA in business administration. I have a good understanding of accounting and business marketing principles. I have developed business plans and business strategy in the energy industry for over 30 years. In addition, I have successfully owned and operated an apartment rental business for over 30 years.

Economics

I have a lot of experience teaching economics to High School and college students. I take time to explain the concepts so that you will retain the knowledge and will be able to solve problems that appear in business situations.

Finance

In my over 30 years experience of preparing financial plans in industry and government I have been able to apply Finance theory in a practical setting. I try to teach Finance to students using real life examples that helps them to understand the concepts, learn and retain them.

German

I have taught German to US soldiers in Germany for several years and one on one to students in the US. I am a native German speaker and have translated from German to English and English to German extensively. I also speak some Spanish, Russian and Georgian. I use an easy to learn method concentrating on conversational German.

Government & Politics

I have taught History, Government and Politics over the past 30 years and have the ability to teach students how Economics, government and politics are intertwined throughout the world.

Soccer

I have played, coached and refereed soccer for more than 30 years. I coached men's teams in the Greater Los Angeles Soccer League and the Peninsula Soccer League for over 10 years and coached Girl's AYSO soccer teams for more than 15 years. I also refereed in men's league games and AYSO games for over 25 years. I have been a successful coach at all levels and am dedicated to improving teamwork and develop individual players on a one on one basis.
