I've taught students from the primary grades to high school level. I carry a Type 9 Secondary Certificate in teaching
physical science, earth science, physics, geography, and social studies. I worked in the field of Architecture for 18 years and am a professional musician (songwriting and guitar).
My methodology of teaching is inquiry based; it is preferable that a student discover their own way of learning a new skill or a new set of facts than simply by me telling them.

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.

Architecture

I received my Bachelor degree in Architecture in 1982 from the Illinois Institute of Technology and worked in the field of Architecture from 1982 to 1999.

Guitar

I have been teaching guitar to students of 8-9 years of age to adults in their 50s for over 35 years. My methods are audiovisual and kinesthetic and I have seen success with all ages.

Hebrew

I have tutored Bar and Bat Mitzva candidates for much of the last twenty years in Vernon Hills and Wilmette, IL. I have a good knowledge of trope and I have a gentle way of approaching pre-teens without making them too self-conscious. References available upon request.

Physical Science

I have a certification in the State of Illinois as a Type 09 Secondary teacher in Physical Science and I have taught Physical Science to 8th graders for two years and high school students for 8 years.

Public Speaking

I have a long background in public speaking including being an active member of and the Public Affairs Director for the McGill University Debating Union. As a member of the Debating Union, I was actively engaged in speaking on issues of public import extemporaneously. I also competed in debating competitions where the subjects debated were unknown until the time of the debate and I excelled in this kind of challenge.

Songwriting

I am a writer and member of ASCAP since 1984 and have released an album of original songs in 1996. My songs have been recorded by Bill Foster (Tulsa, OK) and Robyn Helzner (Washington, D.C.).
