Greetings! I am a husband, father, and parishioner at a local parish in Imperial Beach. I have completed my master's degree coursework in philosophy and bioethics (thesis pending) and studied philosophy for my undergraduate degree. I have been tutoring peers, elders, and younger students since I was in sixth grade, and have established a college-to-adolescent mentoring program in Ohio. I have coached and played Little League baseball for many years in Southern California. I am well versed in history, political science, language, world religions (esp. Catholicism), and have experience working with students coping with AD/HD. I was also my high school's drum line captain, and can help with public speaking and debate.

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 grew up not knowing I had ADD/ADHD. Studying at home and learning in the classroom was always a challenge. When I started tutoring a young student with ADHD while I was starting college, I learned that our learning styles were similar and success was on the way for the student. After being diagnosed with ADD in graduate school, I was able to reflect back and see the challenges as objective in my school experience. Meeting people with ADHD has only confirmed the unique way in which conversational and casual learning, with intentionality and organization, has been a path to success. Students with ADHD need more patience and flexibility, with determination on the part of the teacher in order to reinforce what is learned.
In the process of pursuing certification in teaching yoga, there are many exercises one can incorporate in tutoring people with ADHD. There is much literature that I am able to incorporate in assisting those who have ADHD, who are or aren't using medications to help manage symptoms.
I am happy to accompany and patiently assist those with ADHD through their work.
I am especially qualified to tutor in baseball for little league age and competition level. I have umpired baseball games as a little league umpire and as a professional for private, high school, and college games. I played little league for ten years and in a private league in Mexico. I have been on championship and All Star teams. I have also coached little league teams ages 12-14.
I received private lessons for drumming in high school and played drums in concert and marching band settings. I am able to read sheet music and ended my tenure in high school band as the captain of our drum line.
I have 100+ credits in philosophy. I am finishing MA philosophy thesis.
Francisco Suarez, 16th century philosopher and theologian, explains that the study of philosophy is required for one to become an excellent theologian.
