About Victor

I've been a teacher for decades, a regular elementary classroom teacher, a substitute teacher, a college instructor, and ESL teacher. I have 8 years of university credits, concentrating in social science and languages. I am familiar with nearly all K-12 curriculum, with experience teaching and tutoring in diverse subject areas. I have good rapport with students, responsive to their concerns and trouble areas, and I endeavor always to be helpful and accessible to student needs.

My university experience includes coursework at Pitt, University of Barcelona (Spain), UCSC, UCSB and UCLA.

I love teaching! If I were independently wealthy I'd do it for free.

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.

Anthropology

I have a BA in anthropology from UCSC, and 3 years of graduate units from UCSB and UCLA. I have taught several anthropology courses at Cerro Coso College, in Lake Isabella, California.

I keep up with developments in the field and maintain a high level of interest in anthropology.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a bilingual 4th grade teacher with LAUSD (L.A., California) for 2 years. I have been a substitute teacher since 1993, and have been in many classrooms at all grade levels. I know the curriculum very well and have a lot of experience explaining it to students. The last school I subbed in was San Lorenzo School, San Lorenzo NM. I am not in the process of renewing my sub permit for WV. I subbed in Jackson Co. WV 2009-2010.

Guitar

I began playing the guitar in 1967. I play acoustic, mostly 12-string. I am adept in the genres of folk, rock, reggae, bluegrass and Celtic.

I was classically trained for 10 years, as a child, on the piano, and so I understand music theory as well.
