Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a Montessori pre-school and kindergarten teacher for three years. I am familiar with basic learning styles of various children and adapt my teaching to the specific needs of the child. Part of the Montessori view is that the child chooses their own activities. In this way, it enables a sense of self-direction and autonomy.

Public Speaking

I have been a teacher of philosophy for 12 years. Part of the profession requires public speaking in every class. Concurrently, I have been a guest speaker at Colorado Healthcare Ethics Forum for two sessions in 2008 and in 2013. In these venues, I spoke about issues concerning bioethics to audiences of healthcare professionals.

When speaking to and with an audience these elements are crucial: preparedness, willingness to change plans, awareness of the differences between audiences, and interaction with participants.

Religion

As a professor of philosophy, I have instructed comparative religions for 2 years. I have extensive knowledge of Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Yogic theory. In this way, I am able to illustrate the various religions and their main ideologies espoused by practitioners.

Study Skills

In order to help people study better I employ a reading comprehension aspect, note-taking skills, and memory assessment.

The way to get refined at studying is to do it. However, after being a student for awhile, the astute pupil learns how to get key ideas from passages.

My own background illustrates study skills with 16 years of teaching experience. Furthermore, I earned a 3.67 GPA undergraduate and 4.0 GPA at the graduate level.

Yoga

I am trained as a yoga instructor by the Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and philosophy. At the institute, where I lived for 1 year, I trained in hatha yoga and meditation.

In this capacity, I have been practicing asanas and meditation for over 20 years.
