I am currently completing my doctorate studies in Human Services/Gerontology. I am an experienced adjunct professor teaching students enrolled in Health Care Administration and Public Health Master programs. In addition to my current adjunct position, I have designed and developed curricula, presented at national conferences, and published essays related to gerontology. I am a contributing writer to the American Society on Aging's national publication Aging Today and a staff writer for a national website that solicits over 50,000 hits a month. I have a Master in Health Care Administration from A.T. Still University of Health Sciences, School of Health Management. I also have a Master in Counseling Psychology from St. Joseph College of Connecticut. I am certified in Thanatology, Death & Dying, and Bereavement. Finally, I have five years + experience as an ESL/Writing/English/GED tutor.
My teaching philosophy is simple, as I believe every student has some unique skill to build upon that can result in overall success in even the most difficult subject areas. I also believe that with time, effort, and an instructor who is caring, compassionate, and patient will facilitate the learning experience to the utmost. Finally, I believe that learning should be conducted in a relaxed atmosphere where the student can eventually take the lead demonstrating his/her success. This, I believe, will bring a sense of accomplishment, an increase in self-esteem, and an overwhelming feeling: "I have succeeded in something important to me".
I welcome all students of any age.
