ExperienceIn my over 25 years of teaching, I have worked with public and private school students in middle school and high school. I have taught and can tutor in English, creative writing, reading, math, history, science, ESL, anthropology, and sociology. Also, I am proficient in tutoring English and history as well as algebra, geometry, Latin, precalculus, economics, and preparation for the ACT, SAT, and SSAT/ISEE. I have high expectations when I tutor, but I provide caring, individualized instruction and an understanding of a student's weaknesses and strengths. I work with both the student and their family. Promoting a light, cheerful environment enables me and the student to work together and enjoy it. I challenge the person to explain the way something works and in other ways, but this is only to encourage them to excel in the subject matter. It provides enjoyment to help one reach their goals and do their personal best.Living in Los Angeles, California, I attended Carnegie Mellon University and the University of California - Irvine. My outside interests include dogs, blues music, opera, poetry, and astronomy. Other things I enjoy are birds, soccer, puzzles, and mysteries when I am not working hard helping students reach their peak.
