The more I tutor, the more I believe that everyone has something to teach and something to learn. I learn from my students how to teach them. I went to college during The Sixties and bring the passion of that period to each tutoring session. With careers in newspaper copyediting and computer programming, I can help you with your writing or your math. I love beating the system and will show you how to conquer the SAT. I owe alot to my Maker and love to share what I've learned from His Word.
I help people learn or improve in chess by playing with them and talking about each move -- mine and theirs. Chess is a process that involves psychology of the opponent so I get them to be aware of what I'm doing so they can thwart me. I like to play 3-person chess, which forces you to "own" both sides of the board.
I have helped students with their study skills by showing them how to (step by step) manage their time, prepare for a test, take notes, and write research papers. An important part of this process is listening to students vent about their frustrations in this area and then responding with practicals. For example, when a student says he/she can't study at night because everyone else at home is watching TV, I suggest going to the library or a friend's house or using ear plugs.
