About this Instructor
LESSON FEES: $40 for a 30-minute lesson $50 for a 45-minute lesson $60 for a 60-minute lesson IN-PERSON LESSON LOCATIONS: Pasadena, Covina, Diamond Bar, Claremont, Pomona (most places within 20 miles of Covina) SUBJECTS: Economics, Government, History, Social Studies, AP Comparative Government and Politics, AP Macroeconomics, AP Microeconomics, AP United States Government and Politics, AP United States and History, General Writing, Essay Writing, Creative Writing, Philosophy My name is pronounced “Zane,” and I have been teaching political science at the college level for almost twenty years. I appreciate that learning is often not easy; it takes effort to forge connections and apply new knowledge to novel circumstances. However, I cannot learn on behalf of my students any more than a personal trainer can lift weights on behalf of their clients. In my view, the best coaches not only challenge their athletes, they smile while doing it. “Yes, we're going to peddle up that ridiculous mountain. It will not be easy, but we will get stronger.” Subsequently, future obstacles – seen and unforeseen – will feel easier. I strive to promote authenticity, critical thinking, self-excavation, diversity of thought, and cognitive empathy. My goal is to enlarge, enrich, and enliven students' worldview. In addition to teaching, my interests include keeping up with current events, creating card tricks, reviewing movies, and writing fiction.
All cancellations or schedule changes must be made directly with the instructor by 6 p.m. the night before a lesson to avoid a full lesson penalty fee. Some instructors may provide you with written notification outlining a different cancellation/penalty policy. This policy will supersede Home School Coaches’ policy. We truly want these lessons to support your educational goals, so feel free to share your expectations with your coach; this will enable them to provide you with a uniquely customized learning experience. Should you ever feel that these lessons do not match your expectations, please contact us to receive a refund on your remaining balance or to be matched with a different instructor. We are honored that you have selected Home School Coaches to be a part of your child’s education.
