Are you looking for a tutor to help your child grow to reach his or her true potential in one or more areas? Since 1992, I have invested in kids' lives as a private school instructor, substitute teacher, children's ministry volunteer teacher, junior-high and elementary-school athletics coach and as a writer, editor and communicator at Awana Clubs International, the world's largest youth and children's ministry. My varied teaching, coaching, professional and volunteer experiences give me the versatility to work with a wide range of children and youth in a variety of subjects. I can serve your student through teaching English, grammar, spelling, reading, history, creative writing, journalism, elementary-school math, Bible and elementary-school science among other subjects.

If your son or daughter is interested in learning or developing in sports, I can even teach basketball and volleyball thanks for 15 years of experience as head volleyball and basketball coach at Faith Christian Academy in Geneva, IL, where my teams have amassed a record of 647 wins and 338 losses.

I look forward to helping your child learn, grow and excel as God intended!
