About KIRT

Dear Student/Parent-

I am a kind, compassionate man with expertise in many academic subjects. My focus in with ESL, Reading and Math.

I have over ten years of experience teaching elementary children & adults.

Most recently, I taught ESL in HONG KONG, China (5 years at various local/international schools).

As a tutor, I seek first to understand the student: academically - as well as their emotional/psychological levels.

Then, I build rapport and work to stretch their goals.

I believe in making progress each time so as to gain confidence & motivation!

I strongly believe that with family support & discipline, much progress can be attained.

TEAM (Together, Everyone, Achieves, More).

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to working with you toward your goals!

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.

Bible Studies

I feel qualified to lead 'Bible Studies' as I am a strongly committed Christian, who attends church twice per week. I also host a 'bible study' at my home two times per month. While in college, I participated in a Summer 'Missions Project' witnessing to non-believers and growing in discipleship. I read my bible daily and enjoy talking about it's life's lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor Elementary (K-6th). I have taught as a classroom teacher (First Grade) for four years at Tara Hills Elementary School in Pinole. I have my CLAD Credential. I have taught all other grades as a 'substitute teacher' during my ten years as a primary school teacher.

Phonics

I am qualified to tutor phonics.

I have studied 'Synthetics Phonics' and used this method while teaching in Hong Kong.

I taught 1st grade for 4 years in the Bay Area and did phonics regularly with five/six year olds - using the Open Court Language Arts Program.

Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor in Study Skills.

As an educator for twelve plus years, and a private tutor for over eight years, I realize the importance of proper study skills.

Being organized and having a clean work area is key.
Working in good lighting is important to avoid eye strain.
Re-reading notes and using a highlighter help a great deal
Having a regular time scheduled for one's "homework" is pertinent.
Setting long & short-term goals is important.
Giving yourself positive reinforcement and motivating yourself is key to high performance.
