Helping to Make Math and Science Fun

Hi Students, I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science from UC Davis and I earned my MBA in Finance at CSU Hayward (East Bay). While I was at UC Davis, I placed 2nd in the Undergraduate Mathematics Exam and represented UC Davis in both the Putnam International Mathematics Competition and in the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) Western Regional programming competition. While I love working as a consultant (more on that in a subsequent paragraph), I also really enjoy math and ha... [more]

Writer, Musician, Poet, and Journalist

Dave, born in Toronto, Canada, received his music education at the Royal Conservatory of Music. He began putting his poems to music and this led to his migration to California to seek recognition as a songwriter. He played with several music acts in the Bay Area in the 1970s/1980s and composed scores for the theater. Following the muse of poetry and fiction writing, he went to San Francisco State University and earned Creative Writing (English) degrees (B.A. Summa Cum Laude,?93, M.A. 1995). ... [more]

Language Arts and Literature Tutor

Most of what I tutor I use everyday in at least one of my many endeavors. My specialties are Language Arts: grammar, essay writing, literature, spelling, as well as time and task management. If I'm not taking in a new novel I'm jumping back into one of the classics (Lord of the Flies, Catcher in the Rye? ANYTIME.) I'm also a writer (fiction, nonfiction, screenplays and theater scripts - as well as cartooning!) but this keeps me pretty sharp in vocab, sentence structure, and original and e... [more]

Sessions Geared to Individual's Motivation and Learning Style

The most important skill anyone can acquire, and the one almost ignored by most institutes of learning, is how to learn. Some emphasize the old-fashioned ?drill and kill? methodology while others latch on to every sort of new trend or fashionable system. In trying to reinvent the wheel or build a better mousetrap, they forget about that simple, universal, and time-tested concept: How to learn! Everyone learns in a different way and responds to unique motivators. Whether you want to learn c... [more]

Recent grad with years of tutoring experience!

I am a strong believer in the notion that anyone can become whatever they want, as long as they are willing to put the time and effort to do so. People are not born smart, they work to become smart. That is my goal for my students: to teach them that they can also become better at something they might be struggling at. In high school, I did not do as well as I wanted to, so I did not get into the colleges I wanted to go to. I reflected and decided to go to community college to have a seco... [more]

Effective English, Writing & Logic Skills

For over 20 years, I have been teaching, training & tutoring in many different forms. Working in small groups and one-on-one, I love interacting with students, asking them questions & getting them to ask questions of their own. That give-and-take is where true learning really happens, but the great payoff comes when the student gets it ? when the bulb clicks on and the light flashes in their eyes. I also employ a modified EDGE method (Explain-Demonstrate-Guide-Enable), particularly with gr... [more]

Online and In-Person Tutoring!

I passed my AP Literature and Composition exam with a 4. In my first year of college, I took a Humanities course on the Ancient Mediterranean, which focused on ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian literature and history. My second year, I took a course that explored the history and culture of Early-Modern Europe primarily through literature. We read from Rousseau to Bront?. That year I also took an Arthurian Literature course that had a syllabus spanning from the 10th century to the 21st. Medieval British literature is the area that fascinates me most, and I hope to learn more about it and the o [more]
