For over 20 years, I have been teaching, training & tutoring in many different forms. Working in small groups and one-on-one, I love interacting with students, asking them questions & getting them to ask questions of their own. That give-and-take is where true learning really happens, but the great payoff comes when the student gets it — when the bulb clicks on and the light flashes in their eyes.
I also employ a modified EDGE method (Explain-Demonstrate-Guide-Enable), particularly with grammar, math & test prep. It is important to understand how students are thinking before trying to correct any errors; that way, they are not just repeating by rote what they are told.
My education includes a degree in English (emphasis in writing) and an MBA, so I like to apply the skills in practical ways. I have worked extensively in educational & business environments with students ranging from junior high school through post-graduate studies. I have studied English, literature, mathematics & finance, and I have applied them in the real world. I can help students in all of these areas.
My goal always is to teach for a mastery of the subject because that has much longer-term benefit to the student.
