About Clifford
****Dr Cliff requires that you contact him through the Ask-A-Question feature prior to booking lessons with him. Please be sure to provide him with the following:

-Location
-Age
-Subject
-Skill Level
-Goals
-Schedule request.

'Dr. Cliff,' a part-time college/university professor, teacher and tutor with 5 master's and 3 doctoral degrees in a variety of topics: Mathematics, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Management Information Systems, MBA, Leadership, Education and Administration. He has always used proven educational techniques to instruct undergraduate students, graduate students and school children/teenagers (K-12). In addition, Dr. Cliff is a Certified Tutor by American Tutoring Association and National Tutoring Association (Math); he holds California Teaching Credentials in Math (CSET I,II,III), Busin
ess (I,II,III), and Educational Technology/Computers (I,II); he is a Sylvan Certified Teacher in Math and Arts/Language K-12.

Dr. Cliff believes that, although many professors and teachers do an admirable job in the classroom, many students and children do not learn well in traditional institutions. Many students and children don't respond to the assembly line nature of most institutions. He believes that a student's or child's strengths and natural abilities need to be the foundation of learning. Dr. Cliff often warns against a "cookie cutter" approach to educating students, teenagers and children. You or your child is seen as an individual, and natural strengths are identified and built upon. Therefore, individual one-on-one tutoring or help is the key approach to each student who has any challenges difficulties in a given subject.

In today’s environment and economic challenges, with shorter budgets for the education, larger classes sizes and pressure of performing well in all kind of standard tests, I often see many students lacking true knowledge and skills in a given subject, since they cannot get individualized attention during the class session. That’s where a tutor comes into the picture, not only uncover major “holes” in students’ knowledge set but also teach students how to study, how to learn and through proper guidance “fill” those knowledge and skills holes.

Hola amigos!

My name is Erika and I would love to teach you Spanish! I am the daughter of a German- American father and Panamanian mother. I am 100% bilingual in both English and Spanish.

I make learning fun and more than anything I teach it in an applicable way so that you can use it as an every day language and not as just a way to pass a class. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Theatre Arts from Loyola Marymount University so if you want to include Spanish Soap Operas into the mix we can definitely do
that! Cheers to learning a new language!

The student will be learning to focus on verbal communication skills within the Spanish language. The student will have fun learning to understand the language and culture of it. Student will be having minor written assignments and or tests to show the progress of the students learning abilities.

If a student happens to have any learning disability. Student needs to notify the teacher, that way the teacher will be providing the appropriate accommodations as lessons take place for the students learning and understanding tasks.

About Alex
I think you for taking the time in reading this brief description about me.

My name is Alex. I am 35 years of age but I don't look it. I work with the Blind and Visually Impaired Community. Recently, I became certified in early childhood development. That means that I am able to work with children ages 3 to 5 year olds or younger. When possible I do provide the following lessons. In Spanish, English, and computer lessons. But when I work with the Blind and vision-impaired Community, I do teach what's called assistive technology. This means that I have the knowledge of teaching the student who may be blind or visually impaired how to use his or her technology when needed. From smartphone and tablet technology, to typical laptop or personal PC screen reader software and or magnification software.

I consider myself to be a very fun
and outgoing teacher when it comes to teaching the students. My goal is always to help the student understand the learning of the material that he or she would like to understand and grasp for the future meats or so.
