For almost 30 years, I have been teaching Sociology and its major sub-fields in colleges of all sizes. I pride myself on building trusting, effective and helpful bonds with students. As your tutor, I will do all I can to assist you with study skills, note-taking, "power" listening --- all of which will make a difference in any class you take. As for my particular areas of expertise, they are Sociology and Social Psychology. My belief is that I can make any troublesome material clearer and easier to retain. Traditionally, my students earn good, high grades, and that is what I would like to help you.

Tutors must understand that their particular approach to a subject may not --- in fact, probably is not --- the same as the teacher of the class being tutored. I will be relying as much upon you for a while, as you explain to me how the class is structured, what the areas of emphasis are, and what your teacher's specific expectations are. As I said, I have taught in small community colleges, major universities, and many school sizes in between, so I feel confident we can find common ground. Once we have a clear idea of what your classes' expectations are, constructing a plan of action should be quick and fairly easy. Though I realize I am technically "the lead" here, I want you to know that your input, your opinions will never be underestimated or overlooked.

I look forward to working with you, and getting those grades you know you can achieve!

Public Speaking

Though not specifically trained in Public Speaking, I have been a college instructor for 30 years. I am able to collect material and edit it for effectiveness and the ability to hold a group's attention. I have strategies for overcoming fear and/or shyness when speaking to a group. In addition, I am capable of aiding in the creation of speeches and presentations.

Social Studies

Both my undergraduate and graduate degrees are in Sociology. I have both learning and teaching experience in many areas: introductory sociology,criminology, marriage and family and social problems. My undergraduate minors were history and English, so I believe I am capable of aiding students with any and all areas of social studies.

Tennis

I have been playing tennis for over 40 years, and am intimately familiar with both the rules and the mechanics of the game. Whether tutoring is on the court for teaching scoring and strokes, or off the court studying the rules and courtesies of the game, I believe myself fully qualified to help anyone learn the game.

Writing

I have 30 years' classroom experience proofreading, editing and helping students improve their writing skills. As a lecturer, my presentations had to be clear and correct. I believe I can pass on the ability to write clearly to anyone who is willing to learn.
