I'm very passionate about helping individuals to love and to learn about my favorite subjects: Geography, History, Literature, Math, Writing and Public Speaking.

Although I would not be able to list teacher on my resume teaching and coaching is something I do every day at my current job. I've been team leader at my college course in preparing teams to do presentations. I've taught journalism at the college level. Also, I'm one of the trainers for new employees at my full time job.

My style is to "not just" provide the answers but help the individual/s discover the answers through research, hands on help and doing the work.
