I love working with young minds and making learning a fun experience. Special needs children are more than welcome since I find that
I can relate to them easily. Years ago I suffered atrophy on my left-side of the brain due to a botched surgery. I had been a programmer
but now had to learn to think 'outside of the box'. Learning this on my own has helped me to reach children that have been left out and
ignored in classrooms because they think differently.
I have tutored children from special needs to higher learning from k-8th. I tutored a special needs' boy for six years. He went from not
talking to anyone to receiving the most improved student out of his entire school. I love improving children's lives and they feel this
and this helps them try harder.
I, also, tutored a boy with ADD quite successfully. He started out with me being very fidgety and bored to actually asking his
parents if he could be tutored on his days off from tutoring.
Before having to be on disability I worked for 30 years as a buyer, analyst, consultant and programmer for IBM. The success that I achieved
while at IBM doesn't compare to the feeling of success when I change a young child's attitude towards WANTING to learn and enjoying learning!
