About George

A Princeton graduate, I was a teacher with LAUSD (Los Angeles Unified School District) for over 13 years before recently moving to Jersey City. I have experience teaching ESL students (English as Second Language) of all ages, levels of ability, and from all over the world. I have taught GED preparation, English, Math, and other subjects. I am extremely capable in English, History, Social Sciences, Math, and the 'Hard' Sciences. And I have been a journalist as well.

I have over 100 hours of tutoring with Wyzant, in many different areas. I'm very personable and approachable; I'm very popular with my students. I bring a lot of enthusiasm and passion to all of the subjects I teach.

My teaching method in general is to break things down, and to focus on the method of approaching problems, or questions, so that the student learns the method of approaching problems him/herself.

If you're interested, get in touch.

P.S. - Oh, and I run 10K races for fun!

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.

George is an experienced tutor who knows what I need. He designed the course accordingly in order to improve my weakest part, pronunciation. He taught me how to pronounce a couple of words correctly and how to control my tone. I would like to recommend him to other prospective students who want to improve their English.
