I have completed two sessions of the CT Dept. of Higher Education's Alternative Route to Certification program in May 2010 and August 2011 and am eligible to teach History and Social Studies, Grades 4-12. My areas of expertise are English language and literature, U.S., European and World History. I am the father of three -- a magna cum laude college graduate, a college junior and an eighth grader -- and have lived in France, Italy and Belgium for a total of twenty years. I am a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal, a corporate communications executive and a frequently published freelance writer, as well as a tutor and substitute teacher. I adapt my teaching style and methods to the individual needs, personality and aptitude of the student and always try to transmit my own love of learning to the relationship.
