I am a retired Dentist, I have a strong science background. I have taught high school Science for 5 years, I enjoy teaching. I have had great success in teaching high school students how to prepare for and pass the Biology portion of the Maryland High School Assessment Test. I am particularly good teaching students with special needs. I have taught science courses including: Earth-Space Science, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Health. I am very good at helping to make the student successful in their test taking ability, while feeling good about their academic knowledge.

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.

Aspergers

I have had 4 years' experience teaching special education with a Biology content area grades 9-12. Prior to this I was a 1 to 1 to special needs students. I have had much experience teaching math and science as well as creating Individual Educational Plans for students' Dx with Aspergers.

Baseball

I have been a certified high school-junior college Baseball umpire since 2004. I have umpired over 100 high school, as well as men's league hardball games. I belong to Mason-Dixon umpire association. Since 2009, I have been part of a team of umpires that train new candidates. I'm very knowledgeable on the topic of rules governing baseball.

Basketball

Since 2002 I have been certified to referee Boys and girls high school Basketball games. I have taken and passed the test given by IAABO and have refereed over a 100 games. In addition I have coached AAU basketball for 6 years and have participated in 3 AAU national championships.

Biology

Biology is very important for students interested in a career in Pharmacy, Dentistry, or any of the other numerous Medical fields. High school students need to pass the Biology portion of the Maryland High School Assessment exams in order to earn a diploma. A good background in Biology prepares the student for the other science courses they may face in their academic careers

Dentistry

I have retired from the practice of Dentistry. Received a DDS degree from the University Of Maryland 1982.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math is a very important subject. It sets the stage for the students' perception of themselves and their ability to learn math and science throughout their academic careers. Very important.

Elementary Science

I have an undergraduate degree in psychology/biology. I have a DDS degree from the University of Maryland. I taught science at both elementary and the secondary level for 5 years at the Forbush School in Glyndon Maryland. I've taking numerous seminars on teaching science to the elementary students

Praxis

I passed the Praxis exam on 01/15/2011. The scores are on record with the Maryland Department of Education. If requested, I would be happy to send a copy of the passing scores.
