About Gary

I have been a professional teacher of students on the Autism Spectrum for 10 years. I graduated with a B.A. in English from Wayne State University in 2004. I earned my Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in 2011 from Wayne State's College of Education. I have taught in Detroit Public Schools for eight years and I have been working as a teacher of students with Autism in Southfield Public Schools for the past two years.

I have also been a lifelong student of martial arts and currently teach Capoeira, an African-Brazilian martial art. I began Capoeira in 1997 and I have achieved the rank of Contra Mestre (Assistant Master-equivalent to upper black belt rank) in Contemporary Capoeira and currently teach Capoeira Regional, a more traditional form. Last summer I spent one month of intensive training in Bahia, Brazil receiving exposure to African-Brazilian culture and the roots of Capoeira Regional.

Feel free to contact me with any inquiries you may have regarding tutoring for students on the Autism Spectrum and/or Capoeira instruction. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I am currently certified by the State of Michigan with an endorsement in the area of Autism (SV). I have taught students with Autism for the past ten years in the core subjects of English, Math, Social Studies, and Science. I have a Master's Degree in the Art of Teaching in Secondary Education.

Martial Arts

I have practiced Capoeira for 19 years. I have taught Capoeira for the past 15 years throughout Metro Detroit to people of various ages and backgrounds. I have achieved the rank of Contra Mestre (the highest level a student can achieve) in Contemporary Capoeira and spent a month in Brazil researching, training and helping to teach Capoeira.
