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've had great success in tutoring Algebra 1 students throughout the years, even before I earned by BS in math from Long Beach State. Alg1 is one of my favorite subjects to tutor because it lends itself to a lot of analogies, learning aids, mnemonic devices (something that one uses to remember something), etc.

Algebra 2

I've had great success in tutoring Algebra 2 students throughout the years, even before I earned by BS in math from Long Beach State. Alg2 is one of my favorite subjects to tutor because it lends itself to a lot of analogies, learning aids, mnemonic devices (something that one uses to remember something), etc.

ASVAB

I took the ASVAB and passed it because I used simple test-taking techniques, and even though I was nervous, stayed relaxed and kept hammering at the questions. I can pass that on to you.

Bible Studies

I study my Bible every day, alone or with my wife. I am constantly seeking to understand and apply it daily. Also I would like to go to a Bible college some day.

Biology

I understand and did well on all my biology courses, in high school, as well as college.

Calculus

Calculus can be one of the easier subjects taken, if you take your time. I have had success with all my calculus students, showing them how to take one step at a time.

CBEST

I took and passed the CBEST several years ago. I've tutored one of my clients in the math section of the CBEST.

Chemistry

I did well in chemistry and understand how to do molarity and stoichiometry problems, as well as valences and bonds.

Football

I played offensive and defensive lineman in high school and would like the opportunity to coach/tutor kids to play in "the trenches."

Geometry

Geometry is one of my favorite subjects to tutor because it lends itself to more analogies and mnemonics than any other math subject. I've had a lot of success tutoring Geom students.

Prealgebra

One of my best subjects is Prealgebra. I enjoy simplifying equations and word problems and use Prealgebra a lot in daily life.

Precalculus

Pre-calc is one of my favorite subjects to tutor, because the applications are more fun. I have my BS in Math from Long Beach State University, so I know my way around Pre-calc, as well as calc.

Trigonometry

I've tutored from Algebra to Calculus while I was at Golden West College in Huntington Beach, including Trig. I have my BS from Long Beach State and have successfully tutored many students, especially those who have gone long-term with me.

Trombone

I have 7 years experience playing trombone from grade school through high school. I can teach the fundamentals, as well as some techniques to improve one's embouchoure. I still have my own trombone.

Writing

Much as anyone else I don't like essays, but I can proofread them! My senior year of high school I had to write 6 essays in 5 weeks. (Ah, those sleepless nights!)
