As a Master's level graduate, I've undertaken community health care research as a sociologist. I've substituted as a 7th and 8th grade English and math teacher, and taught drums over the years. Several health research articles have been published in a professional research journal, co-authored by my mentor and myself. I've helped my granddaughter pass a tough, but interesting, on-line American Literature course, just in time to help her graduate from high school.
I've learned to enjoy college level literature classes, and have taken math successfully up through Differential Equations, though I feel more comfortable teaching math at the secondary( 7th through 12th grade) level.
My approach to teaching is to help the student find ways to their own understanding, to impart a love of and enthusiasm for the subject at hand, and to positively reinforce the student's successes in an encouraging way. Together,we constantly look for ways in "how" what the student is learning can be applied to everyday life.
