"Retired from classroom instruction, I taught science and mathematics and coached baseball and both men’s and women’s basketball for more than 30 years at the middle school, high school, and community college levels. During my high school years, I served as the AP Coordinator, Department Head, and teacher of Statistics and Calculus AB & BC. In an effort to address the learning gaps and restricted access to underserved students, I have mentored students to acceptances at colleges and universities including Columbia, Georgetown, George Washington University, Hampton, Harvard, Howard, Grambling, Indiana, John Hopkins, Loyola (Chicago), MIT, Notre Dame, Stanford, Tulane, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Los Angeles, University of Pennsylvania, US Naval Academy, USC, Tuskegee, Yale, and a host of others.

At the middle school level, I implemented and monitored the common core curriculum for public, parochial, and private school systems and prepared students for the Mathematics portion of the Los Angeles Archdiocese's annual Academic Decathlon (ACADECA) competition. In my 6 years of preparing students for the competition, all 7 of my students produced top 7 or above (125 schools) finishes, twice finishing third, 2nd in 2017, and the 2018 year's State Champion. My students almost always received their first choices for high school to include: Archer, Bishop Montgomery, CAMS, Chadwick, Crossroads, Harvard-Westlake, Immaculate Heart, Loyola, Mayfield, Notre Dame, Orange Lutheran, Providence, Ribet, Rolling Hills Prep, Saint John Bosco, and countless more.

As a proud alumnus of The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), my undergraduate and graduate course work included courses in Mathematics, Sociology, Naval Science, Russian Literature and Language, Finance, Accounting, Economics, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, and Secondary Education.

In all the aforementioned, I set high standards for my students with a casual but focused (intense) attitude.

I look forward to working with you!" less...
