Hi there I'm glad you are on my page, My name is Jon nice to meet you. Here are a couple things about me.
If you are here for Academic Tutoring, I graduated with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering with a Minor in Chemistry from San Jose State University with Cum Laude honors. I worked for 3 years as a contracted tutor contracted with multiple companies and specialize in Math and Science. I have taken SAT tutoring courses for math and am qualified to tutor SAT math. My main strength is that I don't use traditional methods to teach, I focus on fostering an interest and relating relevant and app
licable examples to help understand a problem rather then just teaching them how to repeat steps. Through my methods I have found great success and have even helped influence some kids to pursue a path in Math and Science. My main motto is every one in this world has the same potential to learn, they just learn in different ways. There is no student out there that I can't tutor.
And If you are here for Physical Coaching, I am a nationally ranked gymnast and competed during my high school years and eventually retiring to pursue my educational goals. I also am a student of David Williams (international judo champion) and do Judo at San Jose State University. I enjoy parkour, free running, MMA, and many other physical challenging activities. I am thankfully able to adapt to multiple sports easily due to my extensive gymnastics background. I have experience coaching boys gymnastics for 3 years, during that time I also coached a parkour and flipping class. I also spent the summer as an action sports councilor at Woodward Tahoe. I have a philosophy about coaching, as long as I can do it I can teach you how to do it. I will never teach a student any skills that I cannot preform my self. If you want to progress your self physical then your at the right page. My goal when coaching is to not only teach a certain skill but help an individual learn more about what he is capable of and where his limits lie. I also believe in actually doing with the student what I'm teaching rather then sitting back and vocalizing. Whether you want to learn the technique of a Tiatoshi, do a standing backflip, or even just want to get stronger I am more then happy to help you reach your goals.
Having taught Chinese Language Skills in the private sector, primary, secondary and college institutions for a number of years in China, has not only given me great confidence to teach in a classroom setting, but has inherently brought an instructor comfort that feels natural to me. In addition, finding an opportunity where I can assist the kids, middle school and high school students and adults who love to learn Chinese college staff while maintaining my teaching proficiency in traditional or simplified Chinese characters is both welcome and rewarding to me.
I'm certain that my rich k
nowledge and years of experience in classroom practical application of Chinese Curriculum / Culture coupled with my love to teach make me a professional, responsible and patient teacher.
In addition, I can teach you Chinese in your location which is no more than 10 miles away from Vista where I live. I can also teach you how to play badminton and cook delicious authentic Chinese food.

Ms. Qi is a very accessible and diligent teacher. My son can be difficult, but she found ways to quickly connect with him and get him to open up. She accommodated his need for assistance with his regular work, but encouraged us to "start again" with Chinese which is probably a good idea. Very much appreciate her experience and enthusiasm.
Hi, there! My name is Dean. I've been teaching private lessons since 2005 and have loved helping my students become healthy, happy, and fit. I went to La Costa Canyon High, and CSUSM and earned a B.A. in Communication. I competed on the Tennis and Surf teams in HS and College while still playing basketball and lifting weights year round. I live to be active, I derive all my happiness from my hobbies which are athletics. The friendships I have developed through activities and the feeling I get when adrenaline kicks in is my all natural healthy high which is proven to prolong and improve quali
ty of life. My teaching style is one which incorporates fundamentals, hard work, focus, but most of all fun. I believe that at the end of the day a person must enjoy what he or she is doing in order to improve. I use positive reinforcement as a way to help students grow and am certified and qualified to teach the sports I have selected. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! Ask me about filming/ editing your sports footage! Thank you:)

Dean is awesome. We hired him to teach our 7 year old daughter and he includes my husband and I in the lesson too. It's really great that it's a family event. It's pretty amazing how he can work with us all at different skill levels. Plus he makes it fun. It's not just drills, but he has a ton of games that we play to reinforce those skills without making it feel like work. He focuses on our daughter and gives her great exercise in the process as well. He goes easy on us parents and doesn't make us run as much, which we appreciate! :-)

He helped me with a few tips in the first lesson that really worked.
I'm looking forward to build with you a great Zumba fitness class. A class full of energy, great workout and amazing dancing steps. The only thing that you need to bring is a great attitude and be ready to party!!!
