Ever since I was in High School, I have been asked by parents to tutor their kids. At first it was simply something I did to help students who struggled with math. Then I discovered how rewarding it was to help others enjoy learning and growing both in confidence and in competence.
Now I am a father with 3 kids in San Francisco public schools. Not only do I help them with their homework, I found myself taking a more active role with supplementing their instruction that goes beyond the Common Core standard. It has rekindled my interest to help other students learn and excel in their studies.
I was a highly accomplished math student. During high school, I took Calculus in my freshman year, then enrolled in local community college for advanced course work in Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Statistics, and Engineering Physics. I was also the Washington State math champion for every year of my high school enrollment. I was also placed on the Mathematics Actuary Society's national honor roll for High School students, as well as recognized by National Science Foundation as one of the top 50 math students in the country. I scored perfect 800 in both SAT and ACT math.
But my most rewarding accomplishment was tutoring a friend in geometry. She came to me completely confused with math and a C-minus grade to show for it. Two months later, I was able to help her understand and improve to B-plus in her geometry class. That experience led to numerous families contacting me to help tutor their kids, which I did until I graduated from college and started my career.

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 expert level knowledge of mathematics. For three consecutive years I was the Washington State Math champion as a high school student. I have many years of tutoring experience and have coached students in Math Olympiad.
I received my Master of Divinity degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in 1997. I have been a missionary with Cru from 1987-2001. Since 2001, I have been a pastor. I also was a professor at East Asia School of Theology in Singapore where I taught courses in New Testament Studies, Biblical Greek and Church History.
I have experience teaching language arts and grammar. I have also taught religious studies as a professor, which requires strong command of the English language. I also have prior experience as an ESL instructor.
I have a degree in Electrical Engineering. I was an advanced student in math who throughout high school attended college half day taking advanced math and engineering physics courses. I also won the Washington State HS Math competition every year, including Prealgebra.
