I am a retired science teacher/administrator who had decades of enjoyable experiences, and successes in transferring knowledge to my students. I became very confident in preparing my students for classroom and standardized exams such as the GHSGT and course ending exams. During a 9 year tenure in Fayette County, 98% of my students passed the GHSGT. During My last 6 years in Clayton County, prior to my retirement, I was most proud that my student performances exceeded the school and district performances by 15 - 20% ANNUALLY. I was the only teacher in my school who met the state requirement of over %70 pass on EOCT Tests (End Of Course Tests)in Clayton County.

In order for me to begin tutoring (or teaching) students, my first priority is to determine in what areas a student may be lacking in order to successfully approach improving his/her competency. In this vein, during my diagnostic approach, should I determine that a student will not benefit from my teaching methods, I will dismiss the student WITHOUT CHARGE.

I take a "hands on" , conceptual approach as opposed to "memory" learning. I find that students who buy into this approach become much more proficient and confident, and illustrated in my successes in both a High achieving system like Fayette County, or a somewhat less focused system like Clayton County.

My successes are closely tied to my joy of teaching, and glee in seeing students happy with themselves as they achieve beyond their own expectations
