Former NCAA college baseball player with 18 years of experience offering lessons in San Francisco.

Methodology

My teaching method is to first make sure that there is a strong foundation of the fundamentals of a subject that can be built upon, layer by layer. We cannot tackle calculus without a strong foundation in algebra, just as we cannot field or hit a baseball without the proper footwork.

Background

I am a former NCAA baseball player with 18 years of experience playing and 3 years of experience coaching.
I have been a utility player throughout my baseball career.
I was a catcher for most of my early career until switching to shortstop/pitcher during high school and college.
