I came to education as a second career and always enjoy seeing the light bulb go on when understanding reaches the student. I look for ways to reach each student where they are, and take them to where they want to go. A lifetime of experience in business and education, I have a good background in many basic studies. I have been a classroom teacher in robotics and social studies and have been a learning lab teacher and supervisor for all subjects in a computer and adult education environment. If I don't know the real answer, I will help the student look for it and we will both discover!

I have many interests most recently taught college at MIAT, environmental sciences class. I am working on my PhD through Walden University in educational technology.

"Wasted Time and Money"

I am sorry you feel the time was wasted, but the time you spent attempting to get printouts, connecting to your school portal, etc. was not due to my help. You need to stay focused and based on the work we did on the process of deriving solutions, you were able to successfully complete your paper.

As a tutor, my role is to help you figure things out, which it seems you were able to do quite successfully. Next time, try to send your tutor material you want to work on in advance and follow through on inquiries to the instructor as to her particular wants.

I wish you all the best in your educational career.

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.

American History

Cert teacher in MI, RX--all social studies.

Business

The relationship of people and the transactions they use to create and exchange goods and services with each other. I have a Master's degree in administration science, have owned a small business and been an employee of small and large companies. My accounting classes were 4.0.

Economics

Economics was my undergraduate minor and I have taught economics classes in college.

GED

GED prep is a broad based test you must spend time preparing for. Core subjects are important and you must figure out how to use and augment what you know with techniques and information from the test prep course.

General Computer

From robotics to spreadsheet/databases, my experience can help you reach your goals with technology. I enjoy using computers and other education technology so much so that I have been working on my PhD in educational technology.

Government & Politics

I have an undergraduate degree in political science and economics, government and social science teacher in both k-12 and college level courses.

Microsoft Access

I am a volunteer Access manager for a local nonprofit, and created (and continue to redesign according to needs) a program for reporting and statistics/paperless file system. Ongoing. Recently I had a student in Access with a very good recommendation. i am a former computer teacher for charter school in Detroit and am working on a PhD in education technology.

Phonics

I have an educational background in Michigan, and am a certified teacher for MI. Phonics use was what I learned on as a child and have used in many educational circumstances. This gives me over 40 years' experience as a student/teacher.

Public Speaking

There are two things most people choose not to do. Death and public speaking, former of which is preferable to those given the option. I enjoy and have taught public speaking at the collegiate level. Where would politics and religion be without such a venue!

Religion

The active belief system of a group of people, generally determined by tradition and theology. religion can be mono or polytheist in nature with a common belief in some god(s). I have studied religions comparatively in college and have informal studies independently. I have been a Sunday school and church youth leader/mentor and have led adult studies focusing on Moses and other religious figures.

Soccer

I am well versed in soccer, learning the laws of soccer as a referee and from a coaching perspective in youth leagues with my children. I have been certified as USSF and AYSO referee.

Social Studies

Social studies is the umbrella of subjects like history, economics, geography, and political science. I am certified as a social studies teacher in Michigan (expired). MI certified social studies teacher-all subject areas.

Sociology

The behavior of groups. What people do collectively and the reason for that action is the purview of sociology. My sociology class credits number approximately 30-35 in both graduate and undergraduate classes. I have taught sociology at the college level.

Study Skills

I am a certified teacher in MI. The use of techniques for retaining and retrieving information. How best to study is to be efficient in your efforts to learn new information. Study skills are the basis for education (or should be) and I have several techniques that have proven successful with a variety of students.

World History

As a social studies teacher, I am qualified for any of the social sciences but do have a special affection for history both local to world. Being an immigrant to the US, I tend to see things a little differently sometimes. Seeing the other perspective makes the stories of the past come alive, it is not just dates but reasons and motives that make the difference!
