My loves are history, literature, psychology, geology, dinosaurs, the Civil War and science. When I was trying to decide what to major in, I recognized that my mother had instilled a love of reading and literature and that left math and science for me to master. It wasn't easy but I worked hard over the years.
I started my own business in health, science and the environmental back in the 80's to help businesses comply with the regulations. Then I worked as a manager for a large corporation learning to balance the corporate needs with the needs of the employees through education and compliance. Then I spent 11 years driving a truck with my husband. I love to travel and wanted to experience life on the road.
Most recently. I have volunteered in Atlanta at the Fernbank Natural History Museum learning about fossils and dinosaurs and answering the questions of school children and adults. I also trained to became a Docent at the Atlanta History Museum to interpret their "Turning Point" exhibit on the Civil War and understand the real causes of the war. And finally I trained to become a teacher and group facilitator for NAMI, the National Alliance for Mental Illness, to help family members understand mental disease and address the needs of their loved ones in a more constructive manner.
I believe in self directed improvement (because we know what we need) balanced with a well rounded education that helps us ask the right questions and put questions in the right context. The most important thing is that we understand the questions of our age in the context of our historical experience and become the informed citizens we need to be to help our society progress.
My tutoring method is to have fun learning and to share and learn from my student.
