Tutoring Especially For Home-Schoolers
Avg response < 24 hrs
I have been tutoring children since 1980. I love doing it and have had a lot of success teaching children. I enjoy teaching and I want my students to enjoy our lessons too. I have a great deal of respect for homeschooling and prefer tutoring those who are home-schooled. I am very good with shy or nervous children. I'm also good with children who have become discouraged and dislike doing schoolwork. I have 11 students I'm tutoring now, from my youngest student who is 4 years old, up to one who is 15 years old (I've been helping the 15-year-old since he was 10), and one adult guitar students. My after-school hours and weekends are quite full now, so I'd like to get homeschooling students or children I can work with during the day some other way.

Science Graduate Researcher Passionate About Student Success
Avg response < 5 hrs
I teach hundreds of students every semester. With degrees in physics and mathematics, and minors in biology and computer science, I became an interdisciplinary science graduate student at Arizona State University (ASU), where I completed a Master's Degree in Bio-Electrical Engineering. I seek to undo the damage and negative effects students often suffer/endure from poor teaching practices. I strive to replace this distaste with a passion for the fundamentals of the subjects, just as a long line of teachers have done for me. I am constantly researching new ways, and inventing new tools, to teach. Currently, I am writing a book that will make these creative teaching ideas available and inspire further progression in education. Please contact me for professional, high-quality, state of the art tutoring. My extensive background knowledge of how language, art, and science intertwine allows me to appropriately teach children or college graduate students. Here is a brief summary of my teaching experience: 1. Private Math, Science, Language, and Writing instructor and tutor: 14+ years. 2. Over the past 14 years I've developed a specialty helping students with disabilities and learning disorders, most especially (I have extensive experience with) ADHD, but also Dyslexia, Anxiety, Autism, Spectrum Disorders, OCD, OCPD, PTSD, Vision Impairment, and others. 3. Math & Science Tutor Staff: (a) 6 months as a volunteer in a Chandler-Gilbert Community College (CGCC) tutoring center. (b) One year as an employee in CGCC tutoring center. 4. Mentor for Wildcat Middle School 8th Grade Science Classes. 5. Physics Student Mentor - I assisted incoming freshmen students with their transition to the University of Arizona (UA) physics department. 6. Physics Factory Assistant - Helped UA math professor perform exciting science demonstrations and experiments for visiting junior high students. 7. Physics Undergraduate Council - I assist with the retention of UA physics undergrads by offering support and guidance. Represent the interests and needs of these students when meeting with the department head and faculty. 8. My family used to run a summer school for kids. As a teenager, I was a (fun) math teacher for 3 months every summer! 9. I come from a long line of teachers. My mother, both of her parents, and their parents dedicated their lives to education and teaching. 10. I have also tutored foreign students (Italian, Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Spanish) in English pronunciation, writing, accent reduction, et cetera. 11. Graduate Teaching Associate: 3 years. I currently teach hundreds of undergraduate students each semester at Arizona State University, while working on a book about science education, with aspirations to become a college teacher and educator.

I am licensed in California to teach all curriculum in grades 1 - 6. In order to have a flexible schedule when my children were younger, I taught 6th grade Science, Math, and History; tutored students in grades 3 through 12 in all subjects; worked as a 5th and 6th grade teachers aide, volunteered with Adult Literacy and ESL programs, and substitute taught in grades K - 12. Teaching and working with kids is a delight! I enjoy finding new ways of making the connections that tap into the way they learn. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Managerial Accounting from NYIT; graduating Cum Laude with a GPA of 3. 8. My ACT average score was 35, and am currently working on my Masters. I have over 20 years experience as an accountant and work with a nonprofit organization devoted to assisting victims of violence and abuse. I have tutored Accounting, Finance, and Economics for over 15 years. Accounting is my passion, and I truly enjoy sharing what I have learned with students.

Intelligent And Great Tutor Who Teaches So Each Child/Person Can Learn Concepts Not Answers.
Avg response < 5 hrs
I have tutored friends and family for many years from algebra to Criminal Justice. I received a 4. 2 in all math courses up to Calculus II. Also a 4. 0 in physics. I Take Pride in Being Able to Teach With Specific Dictation and context that "Sticks." WHAT SETS ME APART: I don't give you the answers. I see where there's a need for a lesson and then reevaluate after, knowing then if the student grasped the concept and can then answer questions about it effortlessly. Some Main Subjects Include: Math: Basic Arithmetic to Calculus II. Marketing and Business Including Social Media Marketing Physics I. Criminal Justice. Plumbing/Construction. Public Safety Telecommunication. Constitutional Law. Criminal Law. Criminology. Criminal Investigation. And More!
