I have been a teacher in the public school system for over 20 years. I have tutored for over 10 years in group homes on a one-on-one basis. I have taught in adult education schools where passage of courses were necessary in order for my students to either graduate from high school or learn English at a rapid rate to obtain employment. I have taught middle school and high school in the public school system. Finally, I have tutored elementary school children so that the foundation was strengthened for their entry into their secondary studies.
I hold California state teaching credentials in mathematics, English, and the social sciences and have successfully taught in all three areas as indicated by the extraordinary high scores on all state standard testing and the California High School Exit Examination that my students have achieved.
Having taken advanced studies in the methodologies of teaching the subjects previously described, I incorporate those methodologies in teaching. After all is said and done, what good is it to know a subject; you must know the methods to teach a subject. I incorporate S.A.D.I.E. methodologies and always identify, from the beginning, whether a student is a visual learner, auditory learner, and/or tactile learner. Knowing the type of learner a student is makes the difference between whether a student learns or does not learn because the mystification of education goes away easily and quickly.
Finally, I worked in private industry for over 20 years prior to becoming a teaching and at one time I owned my own business. Thus, I am very familiar with how education needs to be applied in the real world.
