Jon M.
Tutoring & Lessons — Westminster, CA
I hold a California K12 Teaching Credentials for Mathematics, Social Science and Industrial Technology [Computer Science]; NCLB "Highly Qualified" ratings in those fields plus English [including Journalism, ESL, and Reading], History, and Spanish; and TEFL/TESOL certificates. I have taught and tutored in California, Illinois, Canada, South Korea, and China and enjoy it all. I relate well to students from primary grade on through older adults and professionals. As a result, colleagues, students, and parents keep in touch and visit, even many years later. In teaching and tutoring, I want the students to treat the subject (English, Mathematics, Computing, etc.) as part of their lives, not apart from them. For example, Mathematics has application in areas as diverse as making change in the supermarket, measuring ingredients while cooking, and planning a long driving trip. Similarly, especially in tutoring situations, I look to see what prompted the need for tutoring. For one pre-algebra student, it was never having learned first-grade arithmetic. For some ESL students, it required explaining pronunciation rules in English, so that they could recognize that words in the text were the same as words heard in class. At the personal level, while older than many tutors, I am in excellent health, and enjoy swimming several miles a week during warm weather. My main avocations are writing (novels and satire for adults; stories and fables for children); and language study, both in college settings and when living abroad; and small carpentry projects. To close, let me repeat that I truly enjoy teaching and tutoring.
