Mr. Watkinson aims to help children with varying skill levels and educational needs. “There is only so much help that even the best teacher can give in a full classroom environment. Students with learning differences — all students, really— benefit immeasurably from having the opportunity to engage in one-on-one sessions with someone experienced in multiple methods and modalities of teaching. Very simply, I keep working with the student until they are fully engaged, confident, and successful. And I never give up.” Mr. Watkinson graduated Cum Laude from the ITEP (Integrated Teacher Education Program) at California State University at Northridge with a GPA of 3.98. He achieved the Academic Honor Roll and Dean’s List for every semester of his enrollment. He attained a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts – Education and completed a concentration in creative writing. He is also a published author, most recently of the contemporary fiction novel, Taut. He is currently working on his Masters Degree in Educational Administration.
