I am looking to help you or your child with writing, organization, learning strategies, and study tips. Although my content area is social studies, I often work with high school students on basic grammar, writing effectiveness, and test prep. I am a fantastic proofreader and copy editor. I have taught many different classes a high school teacher, from the standards-based World and U.S. History, as well as Gov/Econ. In addition, I have taught geography, comparative religions, medieval and ancient histories, AP US History and Public Speaking. I am highly conversant with learning strategies for students who have trouble with the traditional curriculum and understand what teachers are looking for. I can help students meet the content standards and am well-versed in the new, Common Core.
For younger students, I can help develop the basic readiness that is necessary for junior and senior high school. There are specific academic strategies that I can help with, as well as general approaches that I can provide.
I am generally a wise-guy and students appreciate my non-standard approach. However, I am highly effective at getting them to succeed and thrive at college. I am particularly good at motivation, reaching the "inner learner" I truly believe is latent in all kids. I want all people to succeed. If I cannot help, I will let you know ASAP and I will also suggest other resources that may be available.
