I have ten years' experience coaching in academics and have been doing it since I was in junior high school. My foci are math and writing, and I have coached students from the ages of ten through fifty in subjects ranging from addition and subtraction to advanced mathematics like calculus, linear algebra and differential equations, as well as writing research papers and stories. It is my belief that for the most part people can teach themselves pretty much any subject imaginable. I just provide technical help.
I live and work in a beautiful, mostly natural environment south of Black Mountain, NC, where we have the option of working inside or out, standing, sitting, walking, working on non-academic things, or running. I do not travel except in very special circumstances, as I love where I live and am at home there.
Working with me is likely to be different from other academic coaching or tutoring experiences you may have had. Instead of shutting out life to focus on abstract things, we work in a place where life is flowing around us. Connecting with that life, even to a small degree, is likely to help you not only with academics but also possibly deeper things. If nothing else, visiting a more natural setting is a relief for your senses and your soul.
