" I also have gained teaching experience by instructing high school English summer school classes. As a teacher, I realize how important it is to recognize a student’s preferred learning styles, interests, and motivation for success. It is also essential to me that I make learning fun without losing focus. Many of my students have commented that they enjoy my quirky, outgoing personality and the fact that I push them to set and achieve meaningful goals. I have tutored students from 5th grade all the way up through college, and my specialties are English, Writing, Social Studies, Spanish, Music, Piano, and ACT or SAT test prep. In my free ...

" No two pupils are the same and therefore, cannot be tutored with the same methods. While there are solid basics that need to be adhered to (hard work, focus, preparation), being able to recognize strengths and areas for improvement in study and learning habits have been vital in my success as a tutor. My free time is spent hanging out with my family that includes my wife and four children from ages 7 years to 4 months. Needless to say, my gift for versatility is often used at home in playing referee and Dad for the four best kids anyone could ask for! I also enjoy watching college football, boxing, and hiking the Superstition Mountains.." ...

" My plans are to continue in the field of education one day as a professor of either history or education. With my vast classroom experience I am very good at assessing student needs and responding accordingly. I believe each person learns in a unique style, and it is the responsibility of the teacher/tutor to identify that style and make accommodations in his/her instructional approach. It is this individualized approach that makes tutoring so fun and exciting.."

"Because every person is capable of understanding this logic, every person has latent writing talent, whether they are aware of it or not. I pride myself on being able to bring out this latent talent. I genuinely like working with people and helping them understand language in their own way, and I am good at doing so, as is evidenced by the fact that every one of my students has improved their grades under my tutelage. I also am a very good standardized test taker and teacher, largely for the same reasons I am a good English teacher. I help people see the patterns and logic of tests, and as is the case with my English clients, every one of my ...

" However, while working on those projects I quickly discovered that my lifelong dream of being an astronaut was not really what I wanted to do. I had always had a passion for music, and was a good trumpet player, and with a little nudging from my College Band Director, well, the road definitely took a right turn. In 2002 I moved to Phoenix where I took my second teaching job in the Glendale Union High School District at Washington High School. While at WHS I was the director of instrumental music, responsible for teaching all bands, orchestras, drum lines, color guard, and guitar." ...

"I have earned a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from BYU, located in Utah. Math has always come easily for me, but I have especially enjoyed finding new ways to explain concepts that my friends or younger siblings were struggling to understand.

"I've enjoyed helping and tutoring others since I was young -- probably influenced by my family of teachers. I find there is an important creative aspect to most subjects (especially math) that often gets overlooked, and I try to incorporate this into my tutoring because it really seems to help people connect with the ideas. In my free time I enjoy making things and exploring what others have made, whether in music, programming, writing, games, or art.."
