About Bob

I have been a substitute teacher for Whittier City School District for the past eight years or so, having taught all subjects from grades K through 8. This includes special ed, and I have developed great rapport with every student and staff member that I have worked with. I credit this to my dedication in the classroom, where I ensure the educational development of every individual student.
Education, or learning, is, in my opinion, vital to every human being, which is why I am offering my tutoring services. A child can only get so much learning accomplished at school, so whether that child needs extra assistance in homework or is at risk of receiving a low grade he or she would greatly benefit from a great, dedicated tutor. I have tutored several students over the years for close friends, family members, and former students--all of which have improved in their studies.

Although I struggled as a student in all denominations of mathematics and, furthermore, majored in literature in college, I've excelled at teaching Algebra 1 to 7th and 8th graders. Early on as a sub, I had to re-learn a lot of math, including Algebra 1. Once I learned it and then started teaching it, I fully understood why I was so confused by many of the concepts. Using the mistakes I made as a student of Algebra 1 to my advantage, I teach algebraic concepts from the perspective of a student who once struggled at learning them.

I am outstanding as an English/Literature tutor because reading, writing, and the English language, in general, are my passion. I earned a B.A. in Literature at California State Fullerton University in 2004, and before then I was fascinated with writing. I wrote short stories and composed poems since the age of 9. Although I don't write anymore, I continue to read daily.

To me, education is exciting, especially when learning new things. No matter what the subject is, I am more than capable of teaching it. I am available after school hours, as I work school hours as a substitute teacher (and you should be in school anyway). I look forward to being your awesome tutor!
