I am a recently retired public school teacher living in Saint Clair Shores. I taught for 11 years with Detroit Public Schools (DPS) and 3 years with Charter School Administrative Services (CSAS) in Oak Park. I am state certified to teach Elementary Education (all subjects) and General Science at the middle school level. In addition to teaching science, I also taught social studies and math in middle school. I am friendly and work well with children of all ages and abilities. Before becoming a teacher, I worked as the director of a non-profit organization in Southfield. Presently, I am the assistant pastor and music director of a church in Warren. Because of my religious training, I am completely trustworthy and dependable.

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.

Bible Studies

I have a Masters Degree from the Unification Theological Seminary in New York. I am an ordained pastor in the Unification Church and have been teaching the Bible for 30 years. I conduct a Bible Study at my home every Monday evening from 7:00 - 8:30 pm.

Botany

I taught both botany and zoology as part of a life science unit during my 14 years of teaching middle-school science. I also minored in botany in college and had extensive experience in plant collecting at that time. In addition, my wife and I maintain a large garden at our home in St. Clair Shores and grow a variety of flowers and vegetables.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a recently retired teacher with Detroit Public Schools. My state teacher certification in Elementary Education is still active. I have 14 years experience teaching all subjects in a classroom.

English

My expertise in English developed because I taught elementary and middle school for 14 years including language arts instruction. My Michigan state certification to teach all subjects at the elementary level is valid until 2017. In addition, for four years I tutored my wife, who was a non-English speaker from Moldova, how to listen, speak, and write in English until she was proficient in the language.

Religion

I have a Masters Degree in Religious Education from the Unification Theological Seminary in New York. I attended the seminary for two years from 1980-1982. After graduation, I was assigned as a pastor of the Unification Church in Indianapolis, IN. I served in that position for 5 years. For the last 25 years, I have been the Assistant Pastor of the Unification Church in Warren, MI while also working as a financial consultant and public school teacher.

Social Studies

I am state certified to teach all subjects in the K-6 curriculum, including social studies. In addition, at my last teaching assignment before I retired (Fisher Magnet Middle School in Detroit), I taught social studies for two years at the fifth grade level.

Study Skills

Although I did not teach study skills directly, I learned a lot about how to study while completing 1 Bachelor's Degree and 2 Masters' Degrees in college. Also, during my 14 years of teaching in the public schools, I had the opportunity to prepare my students for all sorts of tests and other assessments.
