I love teaching Government and Economics to High School students. I'm very upfront with my students. I expect progress in all subjects, but I love to teach stories of events, etc. in any History class. I have taught all histories from World, U.S.Early Man, Geography, Economics and U.S. government; including AP Government classes in High School.

I taught for 22 years in the Long Beach Unified School District and this year was looking for a bit of a change. Tutoring appeals to me because I can work one on one or in small groups. I am here to help you and to make sure students achieve.
