About Dario

I am a retired CPS investigator and writer with 40 years experience.

I homeschooled my children and grandchildren until the late 1990s.

I completely understand the uniqueness of "labeled" children, those labelled with ADD/ADHD, Asperger's syndrome, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD and the host of letters telling parents the special nature of their children. Part of my expertise as a Child Protective Services investigator was in the handling of children with various psychiatric labels, such as ADD, ADHD, Aspergers syndrome, autism, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, ODD and more.

Don't shortchange your children. I can help them succeed in school, both educationally and personally.

My specialties are in English and writing, but I also am proficient in history. My philosophy: public education borders on warehousing, babysitting, or educational taxidermy so your child's mind and education are at risk, especially if labelled with certain "disorders." Parents, help them succeed academically and personally through my services.

Also, I have tutored middle school and first year high school students in introductory algebra and geometry.

As a tutor I mix teaching with the sensitivity of knowing the struggles your child is enduring if he suffers from the stigma of learning disabilities or personality or mood "disorders."

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.

Russian

In 1982, as a member of the US Army, I attended the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. I was taught through intensive immersive in the Russian language for one year. I was declared fluent in the language by the US Army. This intense study and subsequent fluency also satisfied my language requirement for my Bachelor's degree at the University of California, San Diego.

Series 63

In 1995, in Phoenix, AZ, I attended training to receive my Series 63 and Series 7 licenses to become a stockbroker. At the time I was employed by the Joseph Charles brokerage firm. I successfully passed both exams. I continued employment at the firm as a broker, which required the understanding and use of the information from both exams. This gave me expertise in the brokerage field and allows me to tutor those seeking to pass these exams.

This gave me expertise in the brokerage field and allows me to tutor those seeking to pass these exams.

Sociology

I have a BA degree in sociology from the University of California at San Diego. I also was hired in 1986 at the YWCA Spouse Abuse Center in Louisville and in 1988 as a CPS investigator by the Commonwealth of Kentucky based on this degree. I have written, as a professional writer, on sociological subjects.
