As a former attorney, businessman, and teacher, I have had a broad range of experience. My favorite subjects have always been history, government, geography, and English, both literature and composition. I have also taught beginning and intermediate Mandarin Chinese, as well as piano and harp for adults for several years.

I spent four years as a GED tutor teaching people from different backgrounds and cultures, and feel that I am a very patient instructor. My area of GED concentration was every subject except mathematics.
