After more than 20 years working in the Aerospace Industry at a management level, I retired and returned to college to earn my Secondary Teaching Certification.
I taught at one high school for 7 years and a second high school for 2 years. My teaching concentrated on primarily Economics and Business classes. I began to teach, on a part-time basis, at Pima Community College and at Chaparral College as an Adjunct Instructor. I eventually stopped teaching high hchool when offered a full time Instructor's position at Chaparral College. I taught a variety of classes, including Micro/Macro Economics, Pre-Algebra, Business, Management, and Developing a Business Plan.
I often found the need to tutor students who needed the extra help. We would arrange a time to meet at the college and would take as much time as necessary. Often, I met with students for most of the semester in order to help them be successful. My personal theory is my students are my customers and I must be there for them when necessary. I have used that approach throughout my career in education and will continue to use it as long as I teach.
I have retired as a full time instructor after 17 years in education but I wish to continue in some manner. Tutoring is the avenue I can use. I would be happy to discuss any tutoring needs that you can use.
