I am a Renaissance man, in that I have a widely varied background. I am well read, and make it a point to stay current on the latest information repositories.
My principle strength is in the sciences: Biology, Physiology, Physics, Astronomy and Geology. I also have a law degree and at some point in my long career practiced trial law.
For the upcoming student, however, I can be of great assistance in providing the keys to understanding most sciences.
My method is to give the student the tools to learn particular subjects and can fill in the blanks when a student cannot catch the drift of a particular aspect of a particular science. Learning is a process that has to be learned. There are methods of learning that are varied depending upon the subject matter being learned. Some learning methods, like rote learning can best be accomplished by index cards with the question on one side and the answer with an explanation on the other. The pack of cards are then shuffled from time to time and the side of the cards reversed so that you cannot remember the lesson by a learned sequence or by memorizing the position of a question in the stack of cards. There are other methods of learning that involve attacking a particular subject from the point of view of several distinguished sources and attempting to reconcile any differences among the sources.
I have had a varied career: lawyer, teacher, screenwriter. My heart is with teaching although I found the teaching experience in the Urban Public Schools an appalling experience. No support from the school administrations and too much personal contribution to the classroom setting. Old books, disinterested teachers.
I am determined not to be one of those disinterested teachers. My students will get my full, committed attention.
I enjoy my work and try to make learning enjoyable.
I have a B.S.in biology/physics from Morgan State University, Baltimore, MD.
I have a J.D. from University of MD, Baltimore, MD
I am an IT professional with the following certifications: MCP, CNA, A+, Network+
