My Love for teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning. I know that hard work and dedication to learning can pay off. I have a degree in Earth Science. Over the past two years I have taught in an urban environment developing students awareness in their own potential. I have been a corporate trainer in the past, but working directly with students has been the best job I have ever had.

I specialize in tutoring physical science, introductory physics, earth sciences and history for success in school. I have also tutored students that could not attend school for various reasons in all subjects, keeping them current for their return to the traditional classroom. It is my goal to keep the student challenged, but not overwhelmed during tutoring sessions. I also provide periodic assessments and progress reports throughout the time spent with each student.

I bring a dedication and passion to teaching whether in the classroom or individually that is rivaled by few. The student knows that I care about teaching and more importantly that I care about each of them and their success in education. When a student wants a tutor they are already showing they care about their education and they deserve to have that same caring in their educator. When calling upon me as a tutor you ensure you get that same dedication to learning.

European History shaped modern times with transitions from medieval - renaissance - scientific era into modern times. This is the part of history that has had more impact on society than most others.

Geography

As a member of the Army Intelligence community I need to understand the geography of many regions. I have also been fortunate to travel to 40 plus countries, in many cases I had to understand the geography of the region before I could travel. I have been a student of the atlas my whole life.

With that, and a minor in history I bring a unique background and learning experience to the subject of Social Studies.

Study Skills

I am currently a middle school teacher and I have taught high school as well. Creating study guides is an essential part of preparing my students for success in the classroom. I incorporate these into the lesson plans as additional support for their work and exams. I have also been a successful student myself for many years, constantly improving my own study skills. I both practice and teach study skills for many different levels of education.

World History

I have a deep passion for history of all kinds, which was the reason for adding a History minor to my college degree.
