I am a very well educated person and a delightful teacher with tons of experience. My students said they always learned from me because I explain things in terms they could readily understand. I always treat my students as I would like to be treated. I think if all the books I've read in my life were piled together, they would fill several rooms, floor to ceiling. I have a good sense of humor. While I was a student a Luther Seminary, I developed a taste for reading history and have been a student of history every since. I review books for the Neworld Review specializing in books on history and religion. I know how to write good clear English prose, how to proofread and edit. I am a very skilled artist, a painter who specialized in acrylics and water colors. My style is figurative.
My teaching method is as follows: to thoroughly understand the subject matter at hand to be taught and then to explain it is the clearest manner possible. I often created my own teaching materials, like Dr. Jones Bare Bones of Good English Grammar and a formatting guide for word processors. My verbal and written communication skills are quite strong.
During my career as a teacher I taught in many schools, so here will be just mentioning the highlights. For five years I worked as a Children's Centers teacher for the San Francisco Unified School District. For three years I taught art courses at Eastern Montana College. During my 22 years living in New York City, for eight years I worked for the Equal Opportunity Centers sponsored by the State of New York teaching office communications, English, word processing and keyboarding. For five years I worked for ASA College of Excellence teaching keyboarding, word processing, and medical transcription.
For three years I studied in the Master's of Divinity program at Luther Seminary is St. Paul, Minnesota.
I taught PageMaker at the New School in New York City and typography at Katherine Gibbs, also in New York City. I understand the principles of electronic page assembly. I have done the typesetting and book design for a number of books, including my own books.
I can draw anything I see. My expertise in drawing started when I was a young child. Most recently I had a booth on Olvera Street in Los Angeles where I drew life-like portraits of people. They were usually very happy with their portraits.
Besides having a thorough knowledge of Christian dogma, For three years I studied in the Master's of Divinity program at Luther Seminary is St. Paul, Minnesota, I also have the same of Islam, which I studied for over 25 years. And I have a basic understanding of Buddhism and Hinduism. Furthermore I understand the conflict in theologies between Christians and Muslims.
