I learned how to do well the hard way. I was a good student from K-12. A regular honor roll student because of very hard work, but not with much organization. I always was a standout student in Math. That was a language that I could relate to. As an undergrad at Michigan State, I did just enough to get by and graduate. I never wrote a research paper. Somehow I always got by. Then followed a lengthy (30 year) career as a computer programmer. That's where I got my REAL education. I had to learn as a practical matter how to get my thoughts organized. Then I decided to advance my career by getting an MBA. My employer required a grade of "A" to get fully compensated for tuition. I was determined that I was not going to have to pay a cent. I also HAD TO learn to write several research papers. Fortunately, by this time I had become expert at organizing my work and thoughts through computer programming and analysis.
That makes school SO EASY, and I learned to really apply my skills and intellect. I don't want your students to have to work hard, unless absolutely necessary. I learned late in life that I was an ADHD adult. I also have 2 ADHD sons, so I can really relate to their struggles. Hopefully I can guide your students through some of the coping mechanisms that I developed. Those mechanisms are helpful for any student.
I specialize in Computer, Math, Physics, Chemistry and study skills. I also am very adept at helping students organize their thoughts for research papers.
