About Gary


Bio

Hi, I'm a snowbird residing in Holiday, Florida from October-April. I have been tutoring for over 25 years and my specialty is elementary through middle school students.
I have an exuberant personality and like to develop a rapport with each kid. Sessions are humorous and I use many games to teach the subjects. For instance, I can program kids spelling words into a computer to learn their words. I have dozens of software programs in math, reading, comprehension, spelling, states and capitols...

Hi, I'm a snowbird residing in Holiday, Florida from October-April. I have been tutoring for over 25 years and my specialty is elementary through middle school students.
I have an exuberant personality and like to develop a rapport with each kid. Sessions are humorous and I use many games to teach the subjects. For instance, I can program kids spelling words into a computer to learn their words. I have dozens of software programs in math, reading, comprehension, spelling, states and capitols and utilize a very energetic, positive delivery. For math, I use dozens of math tricks to show that math is fun!

I utilize a low powered FM broadcast station from my home to entice kids to read and write their own radio programs. We broadcast on 102.1FM and it can be heard for a few miles. I have volunteered for thousands of hours at local schools and participated in tutor/mentoring programs including the Great American Teach In.
