I am a retired educator with 31 years in public education, all at the secondary level. I was a teacher for 16 years and an administrator for 15 years. I have taught math, special education, and physical education. I have worked with special needs children and at risk youths as well. I enjoy working with young adults in the academic arena as well as in recreational activities. I will work hard with my students to ensure that they develop an understanding of the subject and a trust in me.

I have taught high school math and know many of the struggles and frustrations students have. I will work with them to break down each problem and work towards a solution from the beginning to the end. No questions or concerns will be ignored. I want every student to be successful and gain a full understanding of the subject. Failure is not an option!

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Baseball

I was a high school baseball coach for 7 years, played baseball in high school, and coached youth baseball for over 10 years. I have a vast knowledge of the game and how to teach the fundamental skills.

Football

I have played football since the age of 6 all the way through high school. I coached high school football for 15 years before I went into administration and became Athletic Director of my school.

Poker

I have been playing various sorts of poker games since my late teens. I have played Texas Hold-em for the past ten years and have won a few tournaments in Biloxi, Atlantic City, and Las Vegas. I have taught my sons how to play and they have done very well when competing. I enjoy the game of poker and would love to teach it to others if they are willing to learn. I teach the basic rules of the games, the value of the hand, and also the odds of winning a hand.

Softball

I coached high school girls softball for 4 years and youth softball for three more years. I know the fundamentals of the game and can teach children the knowledge and skills needed to be proficient in softball.
