About Ted

I came back to school after a successful contracting career for the last 20 years. I am finishing a Bachelors in Psychology and intend to go directly into a PhD program. I am adept at tutoring Psychology, History, Philosophy, Chinese, Anatomy and Physiology among others. I can help the student who is struggling discover and develop effective study habits, and help them prepare concise, cogent, intelligently written papers and assignments. I have tutored and helped students for the last several years.

I bring not only a proven systematic approach to studying, I also offer years of practical and observational knowledge of societal, scientific, national and global relevance. I was a Chinese Linguist in the Air Force and held an SCI Top Secret Security Clearance. I have worked with and helped at-risk adolescents to transition into adulthood and become productive, successful students. I am open and honest and willing to work with parents to help their children. I can help the student find their forte and discover abilities that they didn't know they possessed. Let me teach you to teach yourself.

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.

Bodybuilding

Have been working out since I was 12. Know proper technique for every muscle. Know anatomy, physiology, kinesiology. Understand individuals physical, nutritional, and psychological needs. Expert in proper motivational techniques.

Chinese

Was a Chinese Linguist in the Air Force. Held an SCI Top Secret security clearance. Married to a Japanese-Chinese girl.

Elementary Math

I have four children and have developed many ways of teaching them their math skills. I understand how to help a child overcome their frustration and give them the confidence they need to succeed in math and in school.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL for twenty years at various institutions. I am a native speaker of English. I was a Chinese Linguist while serving in the Air Force. This experience not only taught me how to learn a second language, but, also gave me a better understanding of how a second language is learned. While in the Air Force I had the opportunity to instruct Chinese Nationals and Arab Nationals in English. I have a complete understanding of syntax and how it is related. I also have an extensive vocabulary.

Spelling

I am adept at spelling and I have taught my children many methods such as phonics, sounding out, syllable usage and so on. Let me help your child develop a love of reading.
