About Troy

In November 2014, I returned from about five and a half years teaching ESL in South Korea. During my time there I took a little time off to get my CELTA certification (that includes teaching practicum for classrooms and tutoring). While in university, I tutored high school and middle school students in all subjects. Currently, I'm working toward my teaching certification. It is my goal to eventually be certified in physical education, ESL, and high school science.

With my teaching certification in tow, I will venture back out into the world to teach at international schools. While there I plan to stay social through my love for sports. These days, I play softball, ultimate frisbee, disc golf, and bowling. Anyone need some bowling lessons?

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.

Baseball

I played baseball for 13 years. My approach to coaching baseball comes from the expertise of those who coached me. Though I am very confident in coaching baseball technique, I believe my true strength lies in the philosophy of sports.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have spent over 5 years in the classroom teaching elementary school students.

Fitness

I am currently studying to be a certified teacher of physical education. This involves study of the workings of the body and methods of working toward various fitness goals.

Football
