I take great pride in being a lifelong learner. Since early childhood, I have benefited from the good fortune of being around others who have inspired me to learn by wondering about the world around me. When I first meet your student, we will spend a few minutes talking about what they are studying, what is challenging them in that course, and what interests they possess. Every aspect of our culture from entertainment to the sciences has a story. Helping a student focus on those stories can provide them the boost they need in subjects like History, American Government, and several others across the typical, 6-12th grade social students curriculum. I also have spent more than 20 years working as a broadcast journalist, taking complex informational chaos, and transforming it into informative conversation. If you are struggling as a writer or public speaker, I can help build your confidence. No matter what subject I assist you with, I intend to help you grow as a critical thinker. Almost every subject we encounter in school and every challenge in life requires the essential art of critical thinking.
In my past tutoring experiences, I have worked with student who are worried about being sent to summer school because of a looming F, only to have them raise their grades to Bs and As. For many of them, I have witnessed them develop a keener interest and mastery of a subject that once made them feel isolated, intimidated, and terrified. Let me help light your path through a touch class.
Hi! Thank you for taking the time to read about my tutoring services. My name is Tom www.*** I am currently a high school teacher at a private school. I have been teaching for 20+ years. Most of that time was at the high school level. However, I have also taught at the middle school level. I am most comfortable teaching in the social studies subjects. In particular, I have taught AP US History, AP Government, World History, and Economics. In addition, I have taught elementary mathematics, high school algebra I, geometry, elementary science, basic computer skills, and Catholic theology. As a high school teacher, I also have my students complete research papers.
As a result of my tutoring, my students have generally seen success. I've had students go from F's to A's in a few weeks. One of the reasons for this is that I create learning experiences that fit each individuals learning modality. I can create kinestic based lesson and lessons that work with multiple learning modalities. In addition, I teach students how to study and how to set reasonable goals that are achieveable creating a growth mindset in my students. This accelerates learning and promotes a positive self-esteem.
Thank you for your consideration. I can provide evidence of my degrees, credentials, etc. upon request.
