19 Years as a Tutor!
I am and have been a commercial pilot, certificated flight instructor, certified accountant, and tutor to university, high school and junior high students (including several years tutoring the University of Wyoming football team!).
It IS possible to learn to love calculus, physics, Shakespeare and business law - and sometimes all at the same time!
Are you a university, community college, high school or junior high student (or the parent or friend of one) who is struggling with science, math, English (including grammar and literature), or business subjects like accounting or economics? Are you trying to prep for the ACT, the PSAT, the SAT or other exams? Do you want to shore up your computer skills (such as Excel or Word)?
And do you want to have fun and feel academically successful at the same time?
I have taught flying (including aerodynamics, weather, and systems) for over 19 years; I have been a certified accountant for over 20 (I'm not ancient - I did both simultaneously), teaching business subjects to high school and community college students; and I was a University of Wyoming professional tutor to the football and basketball teams for several years.
I, too, struggled with calculus and physics in high school until I was taught the "Art of the Possible" by a bright and caring female professor; this training carried me through two degrees and a successful career as a commercial pilot and flight instructor. I have tutored students who previously "hated math and science," turning them into students many of whom changed their majors to study math and science, and many of whom also went on to have successful business or aviation careers. ESPECIALLY WOMEN! (Although the UW Athletics Department will tell you that the guys love my tutoring style as well!).
You CAN be great in subjects you're struggling with now, and I can show you how - it's fun to do well in subjects you once thought too difficult to master.
I'm fun, compassionate, and effective!
- College students (grad and undergrad), including Grad School Personal Statement prep
- Foreign students (TOEFL)
- Military exam prep (ASVAB)
- High School students
- Junior High/Middle School students
- Elementary students, 4th - 6th grade
(PLEASE NOTE: For younger students desiring math tutoring, it is imperative that the student have an easy command of multiplication tables after the 4th grade. If the student is struggling with multiplying, then all functions after that (including division, fractions, percentages, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, etc) will be dramatically impeded. If the student is stuggling with multiplying I will work with parents/guardians to enable them to work with their student via games and math table constructs. DAILY gentle & loving but insistent hands-on guidance from the family is imperative in memorizing "times tables.")
