About Rusty


Bio

As a former home school teacher, programmer, and project manager, I would love to help you or your child with math, English, Latin, grammar, reading, writing, and test preparation.

I have an engineering degree, an MBA, a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate, and I am qualified to teach K-12 math.

I am creative and personable, and love to come up with different ways of explaining things. I live for those “aha!” moments on my students’ faces. I love making learning fun, but I am a serious teacher. I structure my lessons according to the subject matter and needs of the student. I use tried and true learning strategies, constantly assess student progress, and assign practice homework.

Tutoring is my full time job, so I can work with your schedule. Send me a message and I will get back to you within 24 hours.

Thank you!

ESL/ESOL

I am a native speaker of English, born and raised in the United States. I excelled in English at university, and have a firm grasp of the rules of grammar and style. I home-schooled my own children and their reading levels are very high. I study several languages, so I understand how difficult it is to learn a new language. I have a TEFL certification from The TEFL Academy, Dublin, Ireland and will be taking the Texas English Certification in April.
German,

German

German was my first language, so my pronunciation is very good. However, I have lived in the United States most of my life, so I have had to re-learn German over the last few years. I am planning on getting C1 certified next year, so right now I only feel comfortable teaching beginning German. But we can have lots of fun and you will certainly learn a lot!
Greek,

Greek

I am self-taught and have been studying Ancient Greek for over 5 years. I have a website I created which has stories, vocabulary, phrases, and quizzes in Latin, Greek, and German. I create everything on the site except the written stories. I'm adding about 1 story per week. I use a mix of traditional grammar and immersion. I taught my own children Ancient Greek for 5 years in our homeschool group.
Latin,

Latin

I am self-taught and have been studying Latin and Ancient Greek for over five years. I taught my own children Latin and Greek, and my daughter took the AP Latin exam. I teach Latin and some Greek in a local meetup group. I will be taking the Texas Latin Certification in June.

Elementary Education

Homeschool,

Homeschool

My wife and I taught English, spelling, handwriting, writing, Latin, ancient Greek, German, math and history to our own children for over 12 years. I found the materials and put the lesson plans together, and my wife and I graded the children's papers, helped them with their work, and helped them stay on track. I also taught Latin and algebra for a couple of years to other students in our home school group. My son now has his own successful business, my daughter just graduated dental hygiene school, and my youngest daughter is studying to be a veterinary technician. Friends, family, and strangers often comment on how well-mannered and hard-working our children are, so I think we have been very successful as home schoolers. The most difficult and most important part of home schooling is not the subject matter but discipline. Parents must be disciplined and have good habits themselves in order to discipline their children, and to teach them self-discipline and to form good habits of their own. Children pay far more attention to what we do than what we say. Likewise, your children's peer groups are also very important. We have found that peer pressure beats even the best parenting, so make sure that you find the best home school, sports, religious, etc. groups you can. Don't worry if you cannot teach a subject. If you really want to home school, there are plenty of teachers and tutors who would love to help you!
