About Gary

Hi, I'm Gary. Currently, I am a Secondary Education Social Studies major at the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I previously graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a B.A. in Communications. I am currently a certified substitute teacher and will be starting my student teaching during the summer semester of 2013. I have passed the Praxis II exam for social studies content knowledge with a 180, four points shy of passing with honors. I am also able to teach several areas of math, though the more advanced levels (calculus and such) are a bit above what I know. Outside of school, I am an avid distance runner and die-hard Cubs fan. If you would like to see my resume, or talk to references, I can include them upon request. Thanks. Hi, I'm Gary.

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.

Classics

I have taken at least one class on Roman, Greek, and Egyptian history, and am fairly knowledgeable on all three, mostly Roman. I have always been fascinated by ancient history and have read many books on the subjects and would be able to help students care about such a distant subject by making the material relevant to their lives.

Social Studies

I am currently a licensed substitute teacher in this content area. I passed the Praxis II social studies content exam earlier this year with a score of 180, four points shy of passing with honors.

Track & Field

Mostly qualified for track, which I ran during my high school years. I have been a distance runner for the past five, and have incurred a bevy of leg injuries which gave me an opportunity to understand the many muscles of the leg and how to treat any maladies. I have also put together several training programs for friends and family.
