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 been teaching and tutoring all levels of math through Geometry for 5 years, with tremendous success in improving basic math skills. I specialize in Singapore Math instruction which stresses mental math for fast and easy computations.

Baseball

I played baseball all my life through high school and coached both Little League, Pony League (11-3) and Babe Ruth (13-15) for a combined 5 years. I am an avid and knowledgeable baseball fan and a very patient, yet competitive coach.

Basketball

I've been playing organized basketball for most of my life. I have coached a youth summer league team during college and a summer camp team as well. I feel that I can assist in both skill development and improved game strategy.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a valid K-8 CA Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I have taught Elementary Math, Reading and History in a classroom setting. I have been tutoring students of various ages ranging from first through eleventh grade for over 5 years and take pride in my students' educational advances and successes.

Elementary Math

I have been teaching and tutoring multiple grade levels of math up to and including Algebra 2, but my specialty is working with younger students by utilizing the Singapore Math philosophy of building basic math skills through the use of mental math and word problem solving to improve critical thinking and make math fun. I improve the student's "math fluency" by being able to apply these learned skills to help perform basic math computations faster and easier, and make learning math fun.

Football

I started playing organized football in 6th grade and played until a back injury my freshman year in high school and switched to soccer. I continued to play flag football through high school and college and volunteer coached my nephew's Pop Warner team

Poker

Card games have been a part of my life forever. Growing up my family would always be playing card games at holiday get-togethers, etc. I've been playing Poker with my friends since middle school and still participate both with friendly Poker nights with my friends as well as tournaments and open table play at casinos.

Prealgebra

I have been tutoring all K-12 math for over 6 years up to and including Geometry, specializing in all six levels of Singapore Math as well as Common Core.

Public Speaking

My undergrad degree was in communications. Among my previous occupations I have been a professional sports announcer and have given individual and group sales presentations. I have never had a problem with public speaking.

Soccer

I played three years of high school soccer, earning my varsity letter my senior year, and always watch the World Cup every four years. I have coached youth soccer and played indoor soccer since moving to California 22 years ago.

Softball

I have played in organized adult softball leagues on and off over the last 20 years. I have been an assistant youth softball coach for my niece's team. I have also played baseball most of my life and and coached baseball teams for five years.
