I am a retired college professor. I taught business courses, computer technology, and general science classes. I strive to connect to students on their level, to help them visualize the subject matter. I have a talent in analogy and hands on educational methodology. I believe in having students learn visually as well as maximizing tactile reinforcement whenever possible. I make learning fun, and work in and out of the box as needed.
