About Bruce

My tutoring experience comes from years tutoring with Sylvan Learning Center in California. I tutored all subjects in all grade levels. My most successful experience was with a learner who just did not understand how prewriting helped his overall writing assignments. After some one on one tutoring and some very concrete examples his writing improved dramatically.

I worked for Catapult Learning at the end of 2015 and this centered on small group and one on one tutoring in remedial areas of the curriculum for the learner. Small group and one on one tutoring worked so very well to assist the learner in improving his overall educational experience.

I spent over 15 years working in public school after school tutoring which consisted of small group and one on one learning. 20+ years in the classroom teaching most grade levels Pre-k to 12th grade. Over my nearly 35 years of training, tutoring and teaching small group and individual tutoring has helped so many of my learners.

Lastly, my educational background consists of two bachelors, two masters and one phd in both business, administration, teaching, classroom management, school management and tutoring/training programs and coursework.

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.

I personally have ADD with a child with ADD. In addition, my 35 years in the field plus three advanced degrees two of which are in special education. Also, in my 20 years in the public education I was the most successful classroom teacher with students that have an attention deficit and children with that coupled with the hyperactivity disorder.
