About Kevin

My name is Kevin G. and I am proud to say that I am a stay-at-home dad. I was previously a Computer Technology Teacher for the Denver Public and Cherry Creek Schools. I have also been a Special Education Teacher for Commerce City Schools. I have a B. A. in Behavioral Science, am Special Education certified, and endorsed in Elementary Education. I am a versatile teacher who has taught K-8 students, both in and out of integrative computer lab settings, as well as in-class literacy support. I strive to engage students in hands-on activities that provide discovery and authentic, learning experiences. I believe in setting students up for their own success and I focus on developing useful strategies, strong organizational skills, time management, and how students can prioritize their work loads. Therefore, I pride myself in differentiating my instruction so that I meet the needs of a diverse student population.

I decided to become an educator because of my own personal experiences in life e.g. growing up as a high-risk youth. Reflection on my own challenges inspires me daily. At the core of a meaningful educational partnership (teacher/student) is the development of self-ownership, honesty, integrity, accountability, and responsibility. I truly enjoy watching students become empowered as they discover their own learning process.

I am a dedicated, hardworking person who brings a lot of enthusiasm as well as good humor and nature with me into the learning environment. My diverse range of interests, dedication to school, community, environment, and a strong desire to take challenges head on, are the qualities that I bring with me as a tutor for WyzAnt.

I look forward to working with you SOON.

Sincerely,

Kevin G.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught over the last few years as a teacher in Denver Public Schools as well as Cherry Creek Schools in Colorado. I am a "Specials" teacher who teaches hundreds of students every day in computer technology. I infuse common core standards into all of my lessons, ranging from grades K-8.

Elementary Math

I have tutored students within the Denver Public School's system, working with Orion's Mind, an after-school program. We focused specifically in Elementary Math and Reading. I have also tutored students privately in Elementary Math.

Reading

I have used the Step Up to Writing program successfully with K-6 graders. I have also worked for the Orion's Mind after school program and helped elementary students with their reading, writing, and math.

Special Needs

I have a certification in Special Education K-12. I have also worked in Commerce City in Colorado as a Special Education Teacher. I have taught in my own classroom now for two years as both a Special Education Teacher and a specials teacher.
