Tutoring in the areas of physical education require availability of appropriate venues for the sport. We will need an available court for either sport (tennis, basketball, etc), or area to practice basic throwing, blocking, or other skills for self-defense, field sports, etc. Please have 1-2 adequate locations in mind before contacting me, as I may not know all viable locations in your travel radius. I am able to transport you if needed via parental permission if your under 18. (Specifics) Archery: Training in this art will require an adequate safety zone area. Martial Arts: This specific tutoring will not contain object damaging/breaking. Only rudimentary tutoring in lower belt training. Please note the style in practice as there are many styles from various cultures of Asia and Africa you may be asking for assistance with.

When I was involved in high school I started on the varsity for four seasons and won three city championships at Dos Pueblos Senior High School! After my time was done there I went on to play at Southern Virginia University where I only played for two seasons and won a NCCAA Championship! After my quest was done there I started my professional career in Europe with HOGSBO BASKET in Gothenburg, Sweden then came back to the states and played in the American Basketball Association for the Georgia Gwizzlies! I am still currently playing but decided to give coaching a try to give back to the community because I had a lot of wonderful people that gave me a chance. Fundamentals are very important and I am excited to help young players with their development and learn these skills & drills in a fun and challenging way. Please contact: Kenneth S. when your children are interested!

Being actively involved in high school soccer and basketball for all four years I know a little bit about the sports. I started soccer all four years and then basketball for three years. Fundamentals are key and I am hoping to help your children learn these tools in a fun yet challenging way. Please contact me if you or your children are interested!

If you're looking to be a star basketball player, you first should know the fundamentals of the game. If you practice these basic fundamentals on a daily basis, you will soon develop what is called "muscle memory." When you have "muscle memory" on a move, that means that you don't even have to think about it before doing it correctly -- it just happens! This leaves room in your brain for other, more important things -- like successfully completing a drill or play. Here are the top 3 drills I would do to create a stronger fundamental foundation: Dribble without looking. Go through your house and find something you can tie over your eyes. Do you have a bandana, a stretchy headband, or a pair of Mom’s pantyhose? Great. Tie it around your eyes and begin dribbling! If you don’t have to look at the ball while you’re dribbling, you open yourself up to seeing opportunities for great passes! Dribble as you walk, and dribble standing still. Dribble with your... read more

Hello Everyone, My name is Casey. I am a Registered Nurse in Spokane, Washington, and while I am new to this environment, I have been tutoring for the last four years. I am proficient at tutoring math and science, though I am not necessarily limited to those areas. I am also skilled at teaching study skills and organization, which can help students in any subject. I am willing to tutor students of all ages, and I relate well with child, adolescent, and adult students alike. I believe that tutoring is a team effort in which the tutor and student work together to reach predetermined goals.

The student applies class content to the learning techniques, and the tutor helps the student to better understand concepts. My goal is to help students to become independent learners so that they can succeed in and... read more

They say that millions of American children will lose about 25% of their reading skills and approximately 2.6 months of math computation skills this summer (according to the U.S. Department of Education and the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management). If that wasn’t bad enough, teachers typically spend 4 to 6 weeks re-teaching or re-reviewing material that kids forgot over the summer break (Johns Hopkins Center for Summer Learning). To prevent these typical summer-time losses, known as “The Summer Brain Drain” or (which occur when kids do not engage in educational activities), I am offering offering tips and lists of games and activities for parents. I am also offering my own 3-month, hour a day, summer program for kids of all ages. The brain works like the body. The good news is that mental exercises can not only prevent the losses but raise cognitive function and IQ, in a short amount of time. Reinforcing cognitive skills (tools that enable kids to successfully... read more
