About Harvey

I have worked with students of all ages and backgrounds to develop successful reading and other essential learning skills that provide the confidence that is critical to master the ever increasing complexity that is found in all aspects of ones life. Critical analysis of what we read and learn is a tool that will allow each of us to make the best choices that confront us everyday. I focus on comprehension and the ability to analyze everything from food labels and product advertising to literary works and technical information. I help people develop the skills to meet new challenges with the assurance of understanding that they will be successful.

I was an elementary teacher in Washington, California and Africa for 12 years. I have worked with students from
age 7 to over 60 and with students whose primary language is not English. I have been both a paid and volunteer tutor in small class and individual situations. I have worked as a General manager for several businesses and owned my own business for more than 20 years so I have a wealth of experience to meet new situations and solve
problems in unique ways.

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.

Zoology

I studied zoology in college and I have continued to read articles in both scientific and popular journals over the years. My focus in tutoring would be to stress the amazing complexity of the animal life on earth while showing how science has enabled us to understand much of the complexity and organize it to create a more complete understanding of our world.
