About Gene

I am a California Social Studies teaching with a full credential teaching at a top-tiered high school on a college campus. I attended UC Berkeley and have a Masters in Educational Leadership.

I actually lived in Richmond, Virginia where I soaked up all the American history while also teaching in Washington D.C. for one year before returning to my hometown in Los Angeles. I have visited half the 50 states and I visit a new one every year. If I had a million dollars I'd be a world traveler. I love teaching and talking about culture, sociology, philosophy, history, and politics. I have been doing it for over 22 years!

I have been teaching high school since 1996. I am very knowledgeable and have lots of patience. I love seeing students improve and apply their skills as well as become smarter and more knowledgeable too!

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.

American History

I have a California Social Studies teaching credential to teach U.S. History. I moved to Richmond, Virginia to work in Washington D.C. While working for a civic education program, Close Up, I visited all the historical sites in Virginia. I was runner-up for a James Madison Graduate Fellowship to study American History at the University of Virginia in Monticello. I have been teaching the subject for over 20 years!

Geography

I have a California Social Studies teaching credential to teach Geography. It is an important subject to know. If I had a million dollars, I'd be a world traveler. Currently I have visited over half the U.S. states and plan to visit a new state every year. Geography is one of my best subjects - I hope to try out for Jeopardy someday and utilize my knowledge of geography to give me that edge to win!

Government & Politics

This is the specific subject I majored in at the University of California at Berkeley! Very political at Berkeley. I also have a California Social Studies teaching credential to teach U.S. Government. I even worked giving tours in the U.S. Capitol! I hope to run for office someday myself, so I know something about the political process, not just from watching CNN 24/7.

Political Science

This is the specific subject I majored in at the University of California at Berkeley! Very political at Berkeley. I also have a California Social Studies teaching credential to teach U.S. Government. I even worked giving tours in the U.S. Capitol! I hope to run for office someday myself, so I know something about the political process, not just from watching CNN 24/7. I currently teach the subject at CAMS on the campus of CSUDH.

Public Speaking

Public speaking is a passion of mine. I currently coach both Mock Trial and Speech and Debate. Both subjects require a lot of public speaking. I personally publicly speak at my church as well MC special events. I can help people write speeches as well as add flair to their prepared speeches for both school, work, or play.

World History

I have a California Social Studies teaching credential to teach Modern World History at the tenth grade level. I have taught this subject for over 20 years! It is definitely my favorite since I have also had my students role play world leaders and do Model U.N. at CAMS on the campus of CSUDH. This is the subject where we talk a lot about World War I and World War II. I am currently tutoring my daughter who attends Lakewood HS, so if I can tutor her in this subject I can tutor anybody!
