I am a native Californian and experienced educator. I have over twenty years of teaching experience, at all levels from Kindergarten through high school. I have taught a wide range of students, including English Language Learners, students with special needs, and gifted and talented students. I am a graduate of California State University, Northridge and Fuller Theological Seminary. I am currently a Ph.D. student at Claremont Graduate University, where I am writing a dissertation dealing with Muslim and Christian approaches to religion and science. My wife and I have successfully raised two amazing kids - now ages 19 and 26.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Education is a collaborative effort involving student, parents, teachers, and other education professionals, such as tutors. The role of a tutor is to help a student, or a student and the student's parents, to hone in on a specific problem and develop a strategy to address that problem. The tutor then works with and provides educational support for the student in carrying out that strategy and then achieving the goal.
