About Scott

I am a teacher that has 17 years experience in the classroom. My teaching experience has ranged from first grade all the way up to, and including, 12 grade. I have a degree from Millersville University in Elementary Education.

I have an elementary school certification, a middle school Social Studies and Citizenship certification and a high school Social Studies certification. I spent some time as a classroom teacher in a first grade classroom and also have taught Advanced Placement American History in the high school environment.

I spent some time as a personal tutor a few years ago and I really enjoyed the ability to work one on one with a student to really help them understand materials that they were having difficulty with. As a classroom teacher, I always deal with classes that range from 18 to 32 students. It is very nice and refreshing to get to help a student and see the "light go on" when the student truly understands materials.

I have taught classes in European, World, and American History in the high school and middle school environment. I most recently taught an Advanced Placement class in American History (100% of the students in the class passed the AP exam with a 3 or higher). I have taught in the same school for the past 12 years with great reviews from both students and administrators.

I have been a head track and field coach for a varsity track and field team for the past 13 years. I have had the honor of coaching a couple of state champions as well as many medal winners. I had the honor of being selected as the Track Coach of the year for Bucks, Lehigh and Northampton counties by the Morning Call. I have also run a number of track camps and speed camps during off times.

I have had great success in every aspect of education. My results speak for themselves in teaching, coaching and tutoring. Even though I am new to Wyzant, I have many years of experience to draw on to make you successful. Contact me and we can set up a tutoring appointment as soon as possible.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been the classroom teacher in classrooms from first through fifth grade. In these schools the students and parents were very pleased with my teaching strategies as well as my results with the class. I have a degree from Millersville University in Elementary Education. I was also fortunate to have tutored a few students from elementary schools in the area. These students experienced such increases in their performances that I decided to try to help more students by signing up for Wyzant.

Social Studies

I am a certified Elementary school teacher as well as a certified Middle and High School Social Studies/History teacher in PA. I have been teaching for 18 years and have been in the same school teaching high school History for the past 11 years. I have had multiple experiences as a tutor within the school in which I teach.

Track & Field

I am a head track and field coach for a varsity track and field team in the area. I have coached a state champion and a number of other state medalists in various events. I am also USATF level one certified.
