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.

American History

I have taught History and Geography of the United States for over 39 years. The last eight years included World and US History as well as American Government and Economics.

Geography

I have taught history and geography classes for almost 40 years with LAUSD. My experience includes both middle school and high school students.

Social Studies

In social studies we investigate the different parts involved in various societies. Their political, religious, and social structure of their society. We study the movements of people in the various aspects that deal with the geography of places. I have taught social studies since 1973 with LAUSD. This includes social studies in middle school, grades 6,7 and 8th. I have also taught the concept of social studies at the high school level, grades 9 to 12.

Study Skills

I try to help students see a clearer picture of what is being learned. In 39 years as a teacher I have used various methods of improving a students study skills. One important idea is the use of breaking down reading materials into smaller chunks. When taking notes, one method that I have found useful for students is the Cornell method. I also encourage my students to use graphic organizers and diagrams so that they can better picture the subject being learned. I preview with the student what is being learned. I find out with the student what they already know about the subject. I have the student summarize what they have just read by saying or writing it in their own words. I recommend that they review what they learned regularly so that it stays fresh.

Knowledgeable, kind, and helpful — Wolfgang tutored my daughter in U.S. history and government twice a week over several months. Always knowledgeable, he also showed himself to be patient, kind, and generous with his time. In short, a real gentleman. It was a pleasure to work with him, and he really helped my daughter: she got an A in both subjects. ...
