About Anthony

I have experience in several disciplines, academic and otherwise. Shortly after finishing my undergraduate education with a major in Russian Studies on a socially conscious and active campus, I was a volunteer in a community organization under VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America). I then substitute taught a full range of subjects in the Boston Public Schools. Although my academic studies centered around the Liberal Arts, I also cultivated an intense interest in natural science and engineering, with strong hobbies in these areas. My work has always had a primary component of interpersonal relations, be it in international business or in technical sales. In all cases, my strong point has been on focusing on how I could have a positive impact on people on the receiving end of my efforts. Most recently I volunteered as an adviser for three years running at my son’s school for the San Jose Tech Museum’s Tech Challenge.

I am interested in taking an active role in furthering the educational goals of young people. I work with my two sons (7th and 10th grades) who are both doing well academically. I feel I have sufficient bandwidth to broaden my audience, and I am eager to do so. My approach is positive, working toward reinforcement of the skills already learned, My intent is to help a student integrate and thereby strengthen various aspects of the skills he or she has learned to help him or her improve in those areas



I have all of the necessary qualifications to teach English, be it in the areas of reading comprehension, grammar, or writing and composition. Multilingual, I am keenly aware of language structure. I have a intense appreciation of the logical progression of thought that gives writing meaning in the real world. I totally believe what my favorite high school English teacher repeatedly quoted: "Reading maketh a full man; writing maketh an exact man." I have been told that I am an effective communicator.

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.

German

I speak German whenever the occasion arises, and I have been told that I have no foreign accent when speaking the language.

Physical Science

I have always had an intense interest in science. I took courses in physics and chemistry in both high school and in my undergraduate college years. I placed first in the New Jersey science competition. I am self taught in electronics, (mostly in the analog world), possessing among other things, top of class FCC radio licenses.. (I have held positions in broadcast engineering and professional audio.) Having a deep seated interest and knowledge on a broad range of technical subjects, I believe I am ideally suited to bridge gaps in students’ knowledge and to make sense out of seemingly overwhelming issues..

Russian

My undergraduate degree is in Russian, I have used my language extensively, having lived and worked in Russia for over 6 years, where I communicated daily in the language. Through amateur radio, I have made a multitude of contacts in Russia. My spouse is Russian, and we communicate in both languages.
