I have taught in the public school system for 30+ years. During that time I have taught many classes, mainly in the Secondary level, in the area of Social Studies. I also have coached basketball and softball, been a class advisor, and served on various leadership and educational committees. Teaching in public schools has allowed me to work with many different students, of varied interests and abilities. It is my belief that young people can be successful in their endeavors, even those they "have never been good at". As a tutor, the subject matter is important, but recognizing that a student is a person has led me to show an interest in the achievements of the youth. I have found that this often brings a connection that encourages a desire for success within the student.
