I have a passion for education and specifically elementary grade level students. I have been working at Desert Christian Academy as a Substitute Teacher, Teacher's Aid, and Middle School Zoology Teacher for some time now and have a great deal of experience working with children one on one as well as in a group setting. I also have years of experience in the informal education area as a zoological wildlife presenter/educator. I am most proficient in the Sciences, Language Arts, and Bible, but I am able to tutor other subjects in the elementary and middle school level as well.
I have years working as a professional exotic animal trainer/keeper/educator. I am well versed in all aspects of zoology, ecology, and natural sciences. I have worked with almost every animal found in a zoological setting and have traveled extensively as well to gain a greater understanding of the world around us, both in wildlife and human culture.
I have been a Christian for many years and studied Bible for even longer. I am a graduate of Desert Christian Academy and have also taken many Bible courses at Vanguard University, a Christian College in Newport Beach, CA. Jesus is my savior and I have a passion about learning more everyday about His Word and the relationship with Him it brings.
I have been working at DCA in Bermuda Dunes for some time now and have gained valuable experience working as a Substitute Teacher, Teacher's Aid, and Middle School Zoology Teacher as well as wearing many other hats. My passion if for the elementary kids and I feel that I am called to work with that age group. I have personally taught every subject in the elementary grade level and feel confident about tutoring accordingly.
Please feel free to contact me anytime and ask when I am available to tutor. I work everyday until 4:00 PM, so I will usually be available anytime after that Monday through Friday. I prefer to stay in the Palm Desert, La Quinta, Bermuda Dunes area, so if your in that radius, even better. I am also available some Saturdays if need be. I look forward to hearing from you and eventually helping your child to succeed in every subject. Thank you for your time.

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.
I have been a strong Christian for about 10 years now and have continually studied the bible and theological topics. I have taken New Testament and Old Testament courses at Vanguard University and have studied extensively under my pastor, Dr. Sam Mathews. I also taught Bible Study during Summer Camp everyday this year. I work at a Christian School and am always learning more and more about the Bible.
I have been teaching zoology and wildlife classes here at DCA for about 6 months and have been educating people as a zookeeper/exotic animal trainer and educator for about 5 years in a non-formal environment. I am very skilled at teaching about animals and wildlife topics including ecology and herpetology. I have a strong passion for wildlife and can teach most science courses in elementary and middle school level grades.
