About Galen

Hello,
My name is Craig T. I have 11 years' teaching and coaching experience in public and private junior highs and high schools. I am certified by the state of Texas and have taught Texas, U.S. and World History, Speech/Public Speaking, Bible, and Geography, and I have coached football, basketball, track, and baseball. I have tutoring experience in all of the above subjects plus reading, guitar, study skills, and general test taking skills. I also have 10 years' experience as a full-time youth minister in a Baptist church. I enjoy reading historical novels, exercise (basketball, running, and weight lifting), walking my dog (Baxter), and spending time with my wife and my kids. Thank you for considering me as your child's tutor.

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.

American History

I hold a valid Texas Teacher's Certification in secondary History. I have taught U.S., World, and Texas History in public and private schools.

Baseball

I was the varsity assistant baseball coach for one year at Northwest Academy. I can coach fielding, hitting, base running, and some pitching skills.

Basketball

I have 10 years' coaching experience at the junior high and high school level (boys and girls teams) and have played basketball all my life (since 6th grade). I still use basketball as one of my work out methods to maintain a high fitness level.

Bible Studies

I spent 10 years as a full-time youth and music minister at a Baptist church. During those years I earned hours toward a master's of ministry program from Luther Rice Seminary in Lithonia, Georgia. I did not finish the course work, but did gain valuable knowledge and of course, on the job experience.

Football

I have coached football for 10 years at the junior high and high school level (public and private schools). I am most proficient at coaching offensive backs and receivers, and defensive backs. I can also coach football fitness.

Guitar

I have played guitar for 40+ years. I have performed in small bands, and have performed before audiences. I have the skill to teach/tutor beginning to moderate level guitar players.

Public Speaking

I am certified by the state of Texas in Speech Communications which includes public speaking skills and courses. I also have lots of experience in public speaking as a youth minister, teacher, and coach.

Reading

As a History teacher I found it necessary to teach reading skills, such as comprehension, vocabulary, pronunciation, and punctuation. So, I have a tremendous amount of experience in teaching not only History, but reading, which is a necessary skill to be successful in every subject.

Social Studies

I am certified by the State of Texas in History and I have taught Texas, U.S. and World History and Geography.

Softball

Even though I have never actually coached a softball team, I feel very comfortable coaching/tutoring basic softball skills such as fielding, hitting, and base running. I have baseball coaching experience. I also played slow-pitch softball for many years.

Volleyball

As a physical education teacher and coach, I am qualified to coach all the skills of volleyball. I played volleyball on intramural teams in college and on high-level recreation league teams.

World History

I taught World History for three years in a private preparatory high school.
