Hello! I would like to become your tutor. Here is why I think I would be an excellent choice!
My high school education was at a college prep school in New Hampshire. I also attended the University of Southern Maine. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 1995 with a B.A. in History. If you need help in any area of History (U.S., European, Russian, Ancient, etc.)then I am the right tutor for you! Beside History, I can also help you to better understand English(grammar,& literature), Geography, Earth Science, and Spanish 1. If you need to develop better reading, writing, or study skills, I can help you there too! Going for that GED? No problem! My experience includes working as a substitute teacher since 2009 in both Maine and Florida. This has given me practice in a wide variety of subjects. I have passed all background checks in both states. As a sub, I have worked with students of all grade levels and abilities. I now have experience with students from many different backgrounds including social, racial, ethnic, and religious. I welcome each new encounter as an expansion of my own education. Through these experiences, I have discovered that I am very effective in answering questions and helping students to better understand the problem solving required by their lessons. I am looking forward to working with you and your family to help develop your full potential.
Prior to my teaching career, I was employed by the same company in Maine for nearly 28 years. I worked there as a machinist, quality tech, and final inspector. My personal interests include playing guitar, harmonica, and writing songs. I also enjoy following the Red Sox and Patriots, and driving my 1992 Mustang convertible. When time allows, I exercise by riding my bicycle. My wife and I spend our time between Leesburg, FL and Naples, ME. Please feel free to contact me. Let's talk!

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.

American History

I graduated from the University of Southern Maine, Summa Cum Laude, with a B.A. in History.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am presently employed as a substitute teacher in the Lake County School Department. I have experience with students of all grade levels. I have a strong knowledge of vocabulary that was reinforced beginning at an early age by my parents. Always remember, when in doubt, a dictionary is your best friend.

ESL/ESOL

I have an excellent command of the English language. This is not only through good education, but also from my parents, who were well educated. If my siblings or I misspoke, we were always corrected! I am ready to work closely with you to help you master your English!

GED

To earn your GED, you will need to become knowledgeable in a number of areas. I will work closely with you, and together, we will succeed!

Reading

Reading is extremely important as it is the foundation for much of our education. I can help you to become a faster reader, to better understand what you read, and to find reading books to be an enjoyable experience. If you're ready to start, I am too!

Social Studies

I have a B.A. degree from the U. of So. Maine in History. I also work as a Substitute Teacher in the Lake County School Dept. My classes often include Social Studies, usually at a middle school level. I have helped many students during these classes and have found that I am very successful in helping them to understand the subject matter.
