I am a retired school teacher with at least 40 years of experience within and outside the U.S. I have a proven track record of student success in elementary education. My strong areas are reading, math and science. I am patient with learners and work diligently to help them achieve success. Their success is my success. I try to elicit what students already know and then build upon that. I believe that every student can be successful.

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.

Anatomy

Anatomy and Physiology often go together. The former is the structure and relationships between body parts, while the latter is the study of the functions of these parts in relation to the body as a whole. I can help you to understand and learn body parts and systems. Not only will this enable you to do well in the subject, it will also help you to understand and take care of your own body as you grow and mature.

Bible Studies

I have a BA and and MA in Biblical studies (1994, 1997) from Trinity College, Indiana.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a Florida certified teacher in grades K-6, as well as a New York state certified teacher grades for grades K-6 and 5-9.

Elementary Math

I have taught elementary math for over 20 years. I am in a position to assist students to master the basic skills and fulfill FCAT requirements.

Elementary Science

I have taught elementary and middle school science for many years. In today's world, science is an exciting subject because of modern discoveries and the amount of knowledge that is available to capture our interest and motivate us to seek further knowledge. I can give the necessary guidance to students who need to understand scientific concepts and use safe materials to perform home experiments. If you want to learn more about life and the universe, I can help.

General Computer

I am knowledgeable in various computer skills. These include: creating document files, tables, charts, letter and research formatting, power point presentations, fonts, page orientation,cutting, copying & pasting,labels, graphics, brochures, flyers, cards, borders and shading, etc. I am very creative and can teach anyone who is willing to learn the basics.

Microsoft Publisher

Over the years, I have become proficient in using Publisher to create all types of greeting cards, brochures, flyers, programs, newsletters, CD labels and photo galleries. A sample of my work can be provided upon request.

Volleyball

I Played professional volleyball for my country(Guyana) between 1971-1975. I played against all the Caribbean Islands, Brazil, and China. I can send you a photo of my MVP trophy.I also played and coached in Abaco, Bahamas where I taught from 1989 - 1996.

Writing

Writing becomes an easy and joyful activity if you like to read. Francis Bacon once said: Reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact man. I can teach you the basic writing skills that will enable you to produce a good piece of composition. I myself have won several awards in essay writing and poetry. I have published 2 books - a collection of 50 poems, and a book of short stories. I can guide you to become a good writer.

One of history's greatest minds is a man named Mahatma Gandhi. I remember reading about him when I was a little boy. One of the most profound statements he made was: "Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive, easy to govern but difficult to enslave." When I reflect on the course of history, I could see the reality of this truth all around the world. Educated people... read more

In teaching children in this our millennial age, I have observed that a great number of students find it painstaking to sit down and write a proper essay or poem. While the computer can help to expedite the process of publishing the work, the quality is not of a high stand ard. I wish to emphasize the need for more creative writers of today. Most students are unable to keep pace with classroom... read more
