Learning is a team effort, one of contribution and acceptance between both the teacher and the student. By learning more about one another as people, the instructor can most effectively communicate to an optimally receptive student what needs to be learned about the subject matter. From all of my experience in teaching-- from courses I taught during college, through my time in Special Education for Montgomery County Schools, to teaching various professional courses, and most recently, as a volunteer for the MCPS Junior Achievement program and tutor for my own son through middle school, I have discovered that communication is the key to all parties learning more from each other and more about the subject being studied in order to enjoy the most rewarding education possible. My mission with each student is to help him or her emerge from the experience with more than just the ability to regurgitate facts for exams or standardized tests. Instead, when students can grasp any subject well enough to to truly understand it... to interpret and re-interpret it and apply it in diverse ways beyond just the textbook, then they have gained knowledge, knowledge to make their lives richer. And that is the purest goal of learning.

English

After earning my degree in English from Albright College in 1992, I taught for Montgomery County schools in both English and Special Education. I have been an independent instructor on Creative Writing, Reading Comprehension, and Composition for almost twenty years. Ever since I was a young student, English has always been my favorite and most accomplished subject. I hope I can successfully make it yours as well.

Literature

After earning my degree in English from Albright College in 1992, I taught for Montgomery County schools in both English and Special Education. I have been an independent instructor on Creative Writing, Reading Comprehension, and Composition for almost twenty years. While I enjoy teaching and reading all realms of literature, I've always most enjoyed working with the Classics still presented in middle school and high school curriculums-- Hawthorne, Melville, Poe, Twain, Verne, Lewis, Tolkien, Shakespeare, Homer, and others including Greek, Roman, and Norse mythologies . Ever since I was a young student, English and Literature have always been my favorite and most accomplished subjects. I hope I can successfully make it yours, as well.

Philosophy

After earning my degrees in Philosophy and English from Albright College in 1992, I taught for Montgomery County schools in both English and Special Education. I have been an independent instructor on Creative Writing, Reading Comprehension, and Composition for almost twenty years. I have published writings on applications of philosophy throughout various segments of contemporary popular culture including science fiction, cinema, and literature. The realm of Philosophy is both broad and deep. I look forward to helping you explore and understand its richness more successfully.

Reading

After earning my degrees in Philosophy and English from Albright College in 1992, I taught for Montgomery County schools in both English and Special Education. I have been an independent instructor on Creative Writing, Reading Comprehension, and Composition for almost twenty years. Reading is the most fundamental tool for learning. It is the most enduring medium for ideas and knowledge and imagination. The skills needed to master that tool can be made easy to learn with patience and effective assessment of at what level the student begins that process with the instructor.

Vocabulary

After earning my degrees in Philosophy and English from Albright College in 1992, I taught for Montgomery County schools in both English and Special Education. I have been an independent instructor on Creative Writing, Reading Comprehension, and Composition for almost twenty years. I recognize vocabulary as the most basic building material for writing and reading-- the fundamental conveyance of ideas between people. The farther that supply of material is expanded, the more richly and effectively a student can learn and successfully express him/herself. My lifelong experience in etymology and linguistic derivation have helped me develop effective methods of teaching various grade-level vocabulary expansion and usage.

Writing

After earning my degrees in Philosophy and English from Albright College in 1992, I taught for Montgomery County schools in both English and Special Education. I have been an independent instructor on Creative Writing, Reading Comprehension, and Composition for almost twenty years. I have professionally published writings in the areas of science fiction, journalism, poetry, songwriting, and short-fiction. I recognize written language as the fundamental conveyance of ideas between people. The better one's skill in writing is developed, the more richly and effectively a student can present thoughts, information and ideas in order to most successfully express him/herself. My lifelong experience in writing has helped me develop effective methods of teaching its elements (vocabulary, composition, comprehension, grammar, structure, and creativity) to various grade-level and adult learners.
