I have been teaching and tutoring for over 20 years. I have three teaching credentials: a single-subject mathematics credential, a multiple-subject elementary credential, and a CLAD credential. I also have instructional aide certificate in phonics and mathematics. For younger learners, I have developed a "Phonics Screening" page for the 46 sounds in English for early readers and spellers, and a handwriting system for teaching kids how to print. With regards to math, in enjoy teaching the learning of the basic facts with flash cards with younger student to qualifying for college Pre-Calculus classes with older students who need test preparation. I have all the software and materials to create math tests that meet California Standards for every grade from Kindergarten through High School (Algebra II). I have taught at the preschool, elementary, high school, and college levels. I am patient, I enjoy kids, and I love to teach.
Very Prepared and Thorough
Darryl came prepared to the first tutoring session with sample algebra tests and writing techniques which were very helpful for my son. This was very impressive to me because not only did it help expedite the first lesson it showed me that Darryl took his own time to prepare for my son's session. My son has ADHD which often times can be a challenge but Darryl's approach kept his attention for the entire 90 minutes and he really enjoys his teaching methods. My son's grade is already improving.Renee, 2 lessons with Darryl
Wonderful spelling improvement
Definitely improving is his general spelling ability. He has never been so close to spelling actually grade level words. Still needs work but his spelling is now understandable and he can actually do his assignments with correct spelling. Amazing improvementAnne, 20 lessons with Darryl

Experienced and Organized
Darryl quickly assessed problem areas in our son's algebra. Darryl and my son would be engaged in conversation about algebra problems and proper solutions and my son would come away from the sessions and say that he was finally getting it. I can tell that Darryl feels very comfortable with Algebra and is a fantastic communicator with students. He can explain things in a variety of ways so that students can understand. He IS our math tutor as I will hire him again and again as needed. Thank you!!Sarah, 1 lesson with Darryl
Engaging and encouraging.
Darryl immediately made a connection with my student, empowering him by helping him to successfully navigate the online registration and homework process for class. He was professional, thorough and utilized a variety of tools to help our son with learning disabilities grasp the processes and complete his assignment. He is no longer so intimidated by college math and is gaining organizational and thinking skills that will translate into other areas of school and life.Emily, 2 lessons with Darryl

Very good tutor.
I am so delighted how he works up with my son. I know that it's not that easy to deal with my son but he managed to keep him focused on every lesson. Right now, little by little I've seen improvements with my son and I can't wait to see more. I'm impressed the way things are going as far as my son is concern. I would highly recommend Mr. Darryl to anyone who needs help for their kids.Honey, 2 lessons with Darryl
