About Scott


Bio

The most rewarding aspects of any teaching job is watching a student struggle, then finally attain mastery. That is something I take pride in. Whether it is helping students overcome hard math facts, or getting them to perform on a big stage with an audience. Seeing their joy always brings me a smile.

I hold an Associate’s Degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences from Butte Community College, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies from California State University Northridge (CSUN).

The most rewarding aspects of any teaching job is watching a student struggle, then finally attain mastery. That is something I take pride in. Whether it is helping students overcome hard math facts, or getting them to perform on a big stage with an audience. Seeing their joy always brings me a smile.

I hold an Associate’s Degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences from Butte Community College, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies from California State University Northridge (CSUN).

I have been working with children since 2002. Since then, I have worked in three states, with many organizations directly involved with working with children; including camps, churches, and schools. During that time, I have tutored, mentored, and taught.

I teach 3rd grade in Lancaster, California, and have taught 5th grade and middle school. I have also taught PE, dance and theatre.

As an elementary teacher, two things I insist on in the classroom daily is to read and to write. I am passionate about reading as it is an effective way to increase vocabulary, spelling, and expose oneself to new ideas and worlds. English is comprised of many different modalities. Writing, reading, speaking and listening are all important to improve and build upon one's English skills. Whether you are a native speaker, or a novice, I can help explain fundamentals, clear any misconceptions, and begin building a more solid foundation of English with you.

Study skills require knowing how to study and what to focus on when studying. I can help you weed through important and unimportant data. In addition to being an elementary teacher, I tutored grades K-8 in an after school program for 8 years. I can also teach several methods of studying and note taking. I look forward to working with you to find the best method to increase your study skills.

Having gotten students to perform onstage, I know how to unlock concerns and overcome some of their challenges. Whether you are seeking help with homework, test prep, study skills, or building skill in a specif

Fun, good-natured tutor.

Scott had an easygoing and kind connection with our easily-distracted third-grader. He found a good balance of conversation and work to keep Leo focused for an hour.
