Preston Fields

Bio
I am an experienced Health Coach and Private Tutor. I was a psychologist in private practice for 14 years, then subsequent to some major life events I decided it was time for a career overhaul. I coach individuals of any age, with a particular emphasis on weight loss and managing diabetes. Also, I truly enjoy tutoring children in Kindergarten through 12th grade, with a focus on mathematics, English, statistics, psychology, and PSAT/SAT, ACT, and CAHSEE preparation.
