I am a person who believes in doing things right the first time. I believe there are not too many subjects that cannot be grasped when they are properly presented. I love to build educational bridges that help people go from where they are now to where they desire to be. It is my desire, aim and purpose to provide tutor services that causes the "light bulbs" to come on. I am dedicated, patient, thorough and compassionate in my interaction. I welcome the challenge and opportunity to work with you.

I possess a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Liberty University with major areas of Education and Social Studies. I also have an Associate degree in Theology from Christian Life College. I have reared three children all of whom have completed undergrad degree programs and the oldest is working on her second Master's degree at age 26. I believe in raising the bar for excellence and striving to become the best one can possibly be.

I have tutored my own children and scores of other youth primarily in after-school programs primarily in the area of Math and Science. I have helped several people with science fair project success winning at the school and district level - even to placing on the city stage.

My approach to tutoring is to first establish a baseline - determining where the student is, from an assessment which may be a combo of oral and written examination. From there based on time constraints (get a passing grade by end of current grading period or by end of school year) a plan is devised with the student, parent/guardian and school teacher to work as a team to meet our objective. My experience has been that when we all work together - great results are achieved.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. 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.

COBOL

I have programmed in various Cobol versions from AcuCobol, RM-Cobol and M-F Cobol since 1982. I have worked with various applications utilizing Cobol including ERP, EDI and loan servicing. I have written several thousand programs and updated and maintained in the tens of thousands for several hundred clients. I have supervised and mentored junior programmers throughout my career. The platforms upon which I have worked include Windows, Unix, AIX and Linux.

I would work with a student to isolate and determine the area in which there is a need for clarity and instruction and develop lessons using real-life programming scenarios.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a strong interest and desire to lay sound educational foundations. I have three children whom excelled throughout elementary school as I was intimately involved in their learning. Additionally, I have volunteered as a tutor in after-school programs at schools and churches.
I would work with a student to isolate and determine the area in which there is a need for clarity and instruction and develop lessons that coincide with school-related texts and reflecting real-life scenarios.

Elementary Math

I am approved by WyzAnr in elementary education for Math and Pre-Algebra.
