Since graduation from College, I have been engaged as an educator, coach, and mentor. I have been an education contractor since 1990. I have well over 20 years of experience working on behalf of developing the hidden strengths of students and helping them to overcome their personal weaknesses that can inhibit student's performance. I am an entrepreneur, inventor, writer and an actor to go along with my education and mentoring skills. I have current references. I am also a fitness and health enthusiast. I am available to help get anyone in better Physical shape. Physical fitness is a professional passion. For those looking for fitness or skill enhancement, I can really help you. I also believe that a person is a whole being. The Holistic Philosophy is working with student's Mind, Body, and Soul.
I have several hobbies, such as cycling, swimming, horseback riding, and sports in general. These hobbies can sometimes help to motivate a student towards personal improvement. This process of reward/behavior modification for a student can be a very positive motivating experience that is associated with an activity helping students make overall improvement.
Finally, I believe that most educators should try to find a way to encourage the student to love and to respect the opportunity for achieving an education. Therefore, an education can become a desired endeavor. The one size fit all curriculum is generally difficult for many students to absorb, but helping the student to find relevance to what an education can do for them is the key towards making them better achievers all around. That is my general educational philosophy regarding enhancing students, athletes, and mentees.
I have personally inspired so many youth to play this sport that it really is hilarious that I did not end up as a college or semi pro coach somewhere through out my life as a teen throughout my adult career. I did acquire about 4 years of formal coaching in VA. at the HS level, but I was more programmed to work outside of the mainstream system in order to reach more youth regarding sports/mentoring/education in general. However, I do believe if students need coaching in this area, I feel that I am well qualified, especially in the areas of fitness and motivation. I still play the game with the youth on occasion at my favorite workout spots like Orange Lake Resort in Kissimmee, FL, or Theresa Banks Complex in PGC, MD.
As an educational consultant, I have provided basic educational support for all levels of academic support for all ages and generally in all subjects for well over 20 + years in the PGC, MD and Northern VA areas. During this time period, I have gained a great deal of knowledge and experience in working with the younger student population in generally all core and special subjects. I have provided everything from math, pre algebra, reading, grammar, science, spanish, social studies, spelling, and PE as well. I do also feel very confident in teaching these core subjects as well. I have worked with the very bright to the students who have learning and emotional challenges as well. I have generally always had a great rapport with the younger students in regards to helping them succeed in learning and providing a positive role model image as well for them.
My philosophy of life centers around a holistic view of how to best maintain our equilibrium regarding the Mind, Body, and Soul. This Philosophy stems from the early days of antiquity which highlighted the balance of education/philosophy and the importance of a strong body. If
their is just one subject that I can teach that will develop all others, it would be to start with daily fitness. I can use sports and fitness to improve almost all areas of a student's level of academic performance.
I am a sport and fitness advocate generally. I played high school football at the famous TC William's HS In Alexandria, VA. It was the team that the movie "Remember the Titans" was about. I had greater college and after college experiences, thus leading me to coach and invent a new non contact means of playing non contact football. I specialize in teaching skilled positions like DBs WRs, RBs& QBs. I have been instrumental in motivating, and coaching youth who have move on to the college and pro ranks through teaching touch football. I am in pretty good physical shape as well in order to show skills with passion.
I am the author of "Run In MY Shoes," the Inventor of Tagball, and a member of Aftra SAG. From all of these experiences that I listed that requires me to sell my ideas and myself as well as being a teacher, I have developed the skills and confidence to be a speaker in front of all sorts of people. Therefore, I thought I would be well qualified to tutor this subject area as well.
For well over twenty years, I have been employed as an educational consultant for the PGC Home and Hospital Teaching Division of its school system. During those years, I have provided the mainstream school curriculum at the student's home or a designated facility, such as a library, in order to help student remain on task with their assignments. I also provided students with remedial support in many subjects from elementary through high school levels that may have been fuzzy or difficult to the students. Therefore, I feel very confident, and experience in working on supporting students regarding Study Skills and related study needs.
