    ********** NOT A TEACHER **********


    Runbabyrun,

    I most respectfully suggest a few changes in both sentences:

    When he was a student at Central High School from 1999 - 2002, I

    was his math teacher and class tutor.

    He was a student at Central High School from 1999 - 2002, and

    I was his math teacher and class tutor.

    I personally prefer the first sentence that I have suggested.

    ********** NOT A TEACHER **********
