About Haven

I am a retired medical doctor, having practiced family medicine for about three decades. Since retiring I have tutored small groups of junior high and high school students in the Puyallup AVID program. I have also tutored several students one on one in their homes. I have been able to build strong rapport with most students and thus help them quickly improve their understanding of the subjects with which they are struggling.

I have a strong math and science background but also have a good understanding of English and history subjects. If I am informed about the subject to be worked on prior to the tutoring session I am willing, if necessary, to review the material before the actual tutoring session. I look forward to assisting you in your efforts to master your school subjects and feel pride in your accomplishments.

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.

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring junior and senior high students for the last four years, both in their schools and at home. I am knowledgeable in several math subjects, including algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and trigonometry. I enjoy tutoring and have several very satisfied clients. References available. Please see my resume and contact me if interested.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am interested in teaching elementary school students the basics of math, science, and reading. I have experience tutoring students in this age group since I mentored an elementary student for two years and raised a son who went on to do well in college. I have tutored junior high and high school students in these subjects in the Puyallup AVID program. I am presently tutoring an 8th grade student in math and a 10th grade student in geometry. I feel confident I can be effective in tutoring students at all elementary school levels.

Organic Chemistry

I studied and excelled in several semesters of organic chemistry while a university student.

Great tutor. Haven is encouraging and patient.

Haven is an excellent tutor. I am NOT very good at math, but he was able to explain and break the problems down so that I could better understand them. Haven was even able to show me some helpful problem-solving techniques not in the textbook or discussed in class. He even moved plans of his around to accommodate my work schedule, which I very much appreciated. Overall, I highly recommend Haven f
