2017-18 RCAEP Tutors

George Barankovich

George BarankovichAs a father and husband, I am very passionate about Jesus our Messiah, so much so that I find joy in taking time from my business to educate our youth on His creation. I am currently the president of Barankovich Financial Services, but I also served in the US Army as a Field Artillery Officer. During my military service, I had the profound opportunity to be in Germany when the Berlin wall came down. I also served in Operations Desert Shield and Desert storm, and in Korea on the DMZ. I look forward to bringing my experience and passion to the classroom this year as I teach your students history with a military focus and a biblical worldview!


Military History


Jennifer Barankovich

Jennifer BarankovichI obtained my Master’s degree in Chemistry at UC San Diego and my Bachelor’s degree in Bio-Chemistry/Chemistry, also from UC San Diego. I first worked in the biotech industry for companies such as Diversa Corporation, The Scripps Research Institute, and Illumina Incorporated. In 2005, I was called to homeschooling and taught part-time at the community college level while teaching my son. I believe that science confirms the Bible: “I have made the earth, and created man on it. I—My hands—stretched out the heavens, and all their host I have commanded” (Isaiah 45:12 NKJV).

Michelle Dalrymple

Michelle DalrympleGreetings and salutations!

I am blessed to be a homeschooling mom of three. I see knowledge as a gift from the Lord, and look forward to sharing that light of knowledge with students. It is through the grace of God that I have the opportunity to work with Revival as a tutor.

I earned my undergraduate degree at Western Michigan University and completed my master’s degree in English and comparative literature at the University of California, Riverside. I have taught at several colleges across the U.S. in writing, literature, rhetoric, and French. Currently, I am a professor of writing and critical thinking at Palomar College and at National University. I have also worked on developing curriculum at the high school and collegiate level in writing and literature. Finally, I have had several writing pieces published–I have written for Court Report and Communique, Practical Homeschooling, the Allegan County News, the Daily Herald, and poetry and online website publications.

Douglas Gibbs

Douglas GibbsI am a life-long Christian, a father, a grandfather, and a proud U.S. Navy Veteran. I have been studying constitutional principles since childhood, and was an English major in college. My current specialties regard the United States Constitution, American Government, U.S. History, and Economics. I am a radio host, author, public speaker, Director of Civics and Constitution Studies for the Congress of Racial Equality, President of the Constitution Association, a Fellow of the American Freedom Alliance, a Sentinel for the Heritage Foundation, and District Director for the 28th District of the CRA. I have appeared a number of times on various television (both national and local) and radio outlets, and I am a free lance newspaper columnist in both print and online. I am a member of Unite Inland Empire patriot group coalition, the American Authors Association, The Military Writers Society of America, and Secretary for the Executive Board for Birth Choice Temecula pro-life pregnancy center. I received the Golden Anchor Award for my patriotic commentary in 2008, and received a California State Senate Certificate of Recognition in 2014 for my “Outstanding Patriotic Service.”

Ron Harry

Ron Harry

I am a graduate of Long Beach State University with a major in mathematics. I am retired from a career in logistics at a billion-dollar fortune 500 company, where I was responsible for the coordination of production, inventory control, and shipping in support of over 120 distributors. Since retiring, I passed the California CBEST and CSET mathematics exams, and currently own a mathematics tutorial company: ”The MathDoc.” I have spent the last thirteen years teaching math to all levels, from grade school through college. I have assisted “Professional Tutors of America” and the local “Club Z” tutorial organizations, and I work as a substitute teacher.

My passion and gift for teaching mathematics is evidenced with a success rate well over 90%. I place special emphasis on the language of math and the role of strong “mental math” skills, understanding the truth of the saying, “Mathematics is the language of science.”  Math skills are required for most jobs in the workforce, but the even more important benefit to studying math is the lifelong skills it develops, such as patience, determination, creative thinking, persistence, attention to detail and much more. No matter the field a student may choose to work, solving problems is what they will be paid to do.

Sharon Heimann

Sharon HeimannI have been teaching since 1987, including homeschooling my four children through high school. Once my youngest graduated high school, I began teaching Enrichment Classes for River Springs Charter School (originally Eagles Peak).  I taught combined classes of 28 students, grades 4-8  for nine years, retiring when the program was closed. I am excited to again be in the classroom, and especially to be teaching a requested favorite (geography), along with Apologia’s excellent Swimming Creatures life science course. My heart and goal are to help students learn to love learning, and integral to this is the truth that there is no area or arena that does not communicate God’s presence and purpose.

Pastor John Stewart

Pastor John StewartI met the Lord in 1986 at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. After years of professional and financial success and what seemed to be the attaining of the “American Dream,” my life had actually become a nightmare of misery, self indulgence devoid of any real sense of purpose.

After seeking answers through psycho-therapy, self help and various religious philosophies the Lord found me, saved me and changed me. My salvation was radical in every way as I experienced forgiveness, new life, meaning and purpose in life and a hope beyond anything I knew could exist. That living hope still burns bright within my heart today after over 27 years of walking with the Lord and over twenty years of pastoral ministry.

“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain” (Galatians 2:20-21 NKJV).


The CHRIST in Christian


Kelly Suarez

Kelly SuarezI am a wife to my wonderful husband, Heron, and a mother of three amazing kids – Nathanael (9), Savannah (7), and Sofia (3). Prior to becoming a mommy, I obtained my California State Board license in Aesthetics in 2000, and worked in the Medical Aesthetic field for nearly ten years. My husband and I excitedly welcomed our first child in 2007, and the Lord began to press on our hearts that we would homeschool our children when the time came. After our second child was born in 2010, the Lord answered a longtime prayer of mine and graciously allowed me to quit my job and become a stay-at-home mommy. Our journey of homeschooling began in 2012, when my oldest child began kindergarten. The Lord has used the past five years of homeschooling as a time of both blessing and stretching for me. It hasn’t always been easy, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything! I count it a joy and a privilege to be called to tutor the K-1 All Inclusive class. I firmly believe that God equips those whom He calls! My prayer is that He is glorified through using me as a vessel to teach your children not only academics, but first and foremost, to love Him with all of their hearts.

Pastor Cisco Velasco

Cisco VelascoI have been walking with the Lord for nineteen years, and currently serve the families of Revival Christian Fellowship as an Associate Pastor, overseeing missions and facilities. Prior to this ministry, I was a missionary, serving the Lord for nine years in the Philippines, over three years in Indonesia, and shorter trips to Mexico, Thailand, and Malaysia.

I am also a camera geek, and if you can take a picture with it, I will nerd out on it. I have had the privilege to shoot for Calvary Chapel Magazine. I currently shoot weddings, class photos, and events. My passion is stirred when ministry and photography meet and when a story of God’s work in a person’s life can be captured in a single frame.
