So you have a challenge and want a little assistance? Look no further! I have personally trained and mentored thousands of trainees as an instructor. I also tutored small groups who were in pursuit of better scores on entrance exams. I love to have fun as I work, so if you enjoy a positive learning environment, give me a call.

Who am I? I am a military veteran with over 10 years of teaching and leadership experience, priding myself on inspiring others to greater success. I received my Associate of Science degree from Thomas Edison State College and am only a few credits away from completing a Bachelor of Science degree at Southern Illinois University. I traveled the globe and visited the Caribbean, England, Turkey and Italy; I also completed an overseas tour in Asia.

American History

I am an avid reader and enjoy completing personal research on American History. I have completed college courses in Western Civilization, Political Science and 20th Century World History. I have also traveled the country and spent time overseas. I love to learn and share what I know with others. I will challenge and improve your knowledge of American History.

ASVAB

I am a 22 year military veteran who was personally responsible for military recruits in training. I have more than 15 years of teaching and leadership experience and know how to prepare you to take the ASVAB exam. I also taught an academic skills course for active duty personnel planning on retaking the exam. More importantly I am motivated to help you succeed, I believe if I can do you can do it TOO!

Public Speaking

A certified military instructor and Recruit Division Commander, I earned Master Training Specialist designation in 2004. These courses require extensive public speaking and teaching techniques. They also require written exams and practice teaching.

Religion

I have completed a World Religions survey course, completed a Biblical Counseling course and studied the Bible, Quran and other religious texts over the past 20 years.

SAT Math

If you understand the fundamentals, math is a piece of cake! I will focus your study on the fundamentals so you will have confidence tackling any math problem!

Social Studies

I have traveled the country and many countries around the world. I have completed college courses in World Religions, Western Civilization, Political Science and 20th Century World History. An avid reader, I have conducted several personal studies on history and problems in society. I have also counseled and led thousands of military members during my more than 22 year career in the military. I am passionate about helping you understand and succeed in your studies.

Voice (Music)

I have been singing for more than 30 years. I have performed with choirs, quartets and as a soloist on numerous occasions. I am also a self taught guitarist. I have led worship services at several churches. I have performed in front of audiences of up to 500 people and have been commended for outstanding performance.
