About Byron

I've been tutoring people of all ages since 1991. My methods are simple and easy: I meet students where they are, work with their strengths to shore up areas of improvement and keep detailed information on our progress. The main goal for me, is to keep learning fun and productive to take students where they need to go. I've been tutoring people of all ages since 1991.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a California Multiple Subject clear credential certified instructor in my 8th year of teaching Elementary school. I have taught every grade K through 5th, taught preschool previously for 7 years and have been tutoring scholars of all ages since 1991. My MA is in Elementary Education from San Francisco State.

Phonics

I currently hold a California Certified Clear Credential for teaching k through fifth grade. This year I am wrapping up teaching Kindergarten, where literacy fundamentals are strategically taught from alphabet letter name, to sound, through to CVC blending, on to consonant blending along with being fluid with identifyin the first 75 sight words.

Study Skills

Currently I tutor several high school students in study skills across subject areas. Often this requires utilizing similar strategies of note-taking, key word searches and idea summarization. Also, for the past two years I have taught English to foreign students at ILSC, international language schools of Canada, at multiple levels. This additionally requires assigning material that reinforces understandings through various forms: literature, electronic articles and personal experience.
Synthesizing such ideas are routine in graduate studies- of which I have a MA in elementary education from San Francisco State University.

Writing

I recently completed my Masters degree in Elementary Education at San Francisco State University. I am a current elementary school teacher with 7 years teaching experience in public schools. My Master's thesis was on academic rigor. Writing post-graduate college course research papers on academic content is a strong suit of mine, as I decide between two doctorate programs for the Fall of 2013.
