Bio

Hi! While I worked on a Master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling at Utah State University (2005-2008), I taught part-time as a substitute teacher for Modesto City and Stanislaus County schools. I attended CSU at Turlock and Stockton (2002-2005), focusing on all of the mandatory Psychology courses required for a Bachelor's degree (Behavioral analysis focus). From 2002 to the present, I have tutored college students in their studies, veterans in their homes on PC skills (hardware and sof...

Hi!

While I worked on a Master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling at Utah State University (2005-2008), I taught part-time as a substitute teacher for Modesto City and Stanislaus County schools. I attended CSU at Turlock and Stockton (2002-2005), focusing on all of the mandatory Psychology courses required for a Bachelor's degree (Behavioral analysis focus). From 2002 to the present, I have tutored college students in their studies, veterans in their homes on PC skills (hardware and software) as a sub-contractor for the VA, and I have taught grades Pre-K thru 12. Additionally, I have a BS in Business Administration from Rollins College.

I passed all sections of the CA Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) in 2002 on the first sitting, and I have kept my certification current to date. Additionally, I passed the Miller Analogies Test on the first sitting without studying for it to get into grad school.

I have worked with probationers and parolees as a Program Manager, a Behavior Change Manager, and as an Employment/Education Coordinator using Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic (CBT) techniques which assist my clients in making self changes that allow them to move forward in life in a productive, pro-social manner. I have facilitated groups where I train, coach, teach, and educate my clients in many areas such as Moral Reconnection Therapy, Life Skills, Anger Management, Change Management, Cognitive Skills and many other basic skills areas.

Currently, I teach and tutor in the Modesto area. I look forward to assisting you in achieving your educational/academic goals.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I have given many speeches and briefings during my military career and academic pursuits. ToastMasters is a great organization to assist beginning speakers and to hone the skills of an advanced speaker. My experience has taught me a couple of things about public speaking over the years, which are still applicable today. The most important part of public speaking is knowledge of the subject you are going to speak about. Next comes organization of what you will say, whether in your head, or on paper.

Ted is amazing

Ted is absolutely an amazing tutor!!!! My son came home after meeting with Ted for the first time yesterday and is looking forward to continuing his tutoring with Ted. He said that Ted makes learning ASVAB easy to understand and is excited to take his test. Thank you Ted!!!

Anita, 2 lessons with Ted

Ted is a Awesome tutor.

Ted helped me to review math problems that I felt unsure of. Once our session was over I felt comfortable enough to continue on my own. Ted has a great deal of knowledge and teaching skills he is a very good tutor.

Diane, 1 lesson with Ted

Easy to talk to!

In the short time we had we were able to skim through the work I had and find new ways of preparing me for my asvab time. Mr S was very patient and was easy to get along with.

Joseph, 1 lesson with Ted

Good Tutor

Ted was able to show my son the math steps of the ASVAB book that would pass the test. He was not taught these steps in school. Ted was very nice and I would recommend him highly. Thank you very much.

Joann, 2 lessons with Ted

Very pleased

My wife and I were very pleased with the tutoring in which Ted gave our son. Our son needed assistance with the math portion of the ASVAB. After just 2 sessions my son had gotten a good grasp of what he needed to know and is now ready to go take the test. Thank you Ted.

excellent tutor!

Ted is an amazing tutor. He really puts the effort and time to help you. In addition he's currecullum works and he makes it easy for some one to understand.

Tutor responded:

Thanks James! It always takes two people (tutor/client) working together to achieve successful results. Your hard work made this an easy process. Thanks Again! Ted

Great tutor!

I had my doubts about WyzAnt, and if I truly could benefit from getting a tutor online. I stand corrected, not only has the first session increased my learning skills, but has made me more confident in myself. Ted is not only patient in his teaching, he makes learning fun! I truly believe he is the best choice for a tutor on WyzAnt, and that he enjoys teaching to others!

Thanks Brandon! Your dedication to learning makes this a very easy process for me. I have full confidence in you to successfully pass your ASVAB test with high marks.
