My passion is helping and working with people. I have a Bachelor's Degree from Azusa Pacific University (double major in Communication and Bible).

I also had a decorated Baseball career- playing through college and winning many awards as a pitcher on one of the Top 10 teams in the nation. I have run 7 marathons.
My brother and sister-in-law are Elementary School Teachers. I would love to tutor in the fields of: Photography, Social Media, Marketing, Baseball (pitching or general lessons), Homework (Elementary-any subject) or Bible.
My tutoring method is to, first, be a great listener and get to know the child. I will ask a lot of questions to get to the heart of the child's need and use humor to create a relaxed and positive learning atmosphere. I believe in always speaking words of encouragement. I try to be very flexible and easy to work with. I make my own hours in my business, so I can work around your schedule. My name is JB.
