I have a passion for Mathematics and enjoy sharing the elegance of equations and how they work. Melding real-world applications along with the explanations of the concepts being developed ensures a thorough understanding of the concepts. Asking questions during any part of the learning process is encouraged and patiently explained. Tutoring is the ideal method of teaching because you have the one-on-one or small group sessions which are ideal for teaching students who are nervous about their abilities. Also, the students are more motivated to learn as success breeds success.

Algebra 2

I taught Algebra II for many years, both high school and college.

Baseball

I played baseball from age six all the way through college. I have followed the game through the years and have read the history of the game. I also coached baseball for junior high and high school players.

Botany

As part of my teaching career (12 years of teaching science), I taught Botany as a unit of my science curriculum. I did extensive research on this subject to prepare for my lessons. I learned about plants and their role in the ecology of earth, how plants are the beginning of all food chains through the process of photosynthesis and the different kinds of plants. Everything from reproduction to full growth was covered. My classes also conducted many experiments that I devised for hands on activities.

Elementary (K-6th)

I majored in Elementary Education, as well as Math and English graduating from the University of NH in 1973. I have taught fourth grade, self-contained, and sixth grade for seven years.

Geometry

I have taught all levels of geometry during my 34 years as a high school and college instructor. Geometry can be a daunting subject, but I have found that once the understanding of the theorems occurs, geometry can actually be fun. It is more fundamental than algebra and some of the more conceptual math areas. I also was Chairman of the Math Curriculum Committee for ten years. This involved curriculum development of all the branches of math and the order in which they should be taught. Geometry is a fundamental math course for higher level courses.

Public Speaking

I spent 35 years presenting driver improvement and driver attitude information to a wide range of people. Teaching Mathematics and English for thirty-four years in high school and college, (evening division) certainly qualifies as public speaking. Included in my background is motivational speaking to people wanting a more fulfilling life.

Soccer

I played soccer all through my school years including being recruited to play college soccer where I was a starting player. I have also played in adult leagues. Included in my soccer career is coaching all age levels of soccer. I continue watch some college soccer and the world cup games.

Social Studies

For nine years I taught a section of Social Studies. My students first defined the concept of social studies and its importance of understanding the world of today. My classes studied how people evolved into societies, how cultural differences came to be and how geography help formed these cultures. Also discussed were how cultures changed through time and what influenced these changes. My classes analyzed the political climate, physical changes of the region, technology and the moral fiber of them.

Sociology

As a college student I took a variety of Sociology courses and became fascinated with why people as a group act in certain ways, such as "buying" into fads. I have maintained this interest even beyond teaching. I keep current through periodicals and books on the latest societal themes and philosophies from people in the field.

Study Skills

I have spent 35 years teaching a variety of subjects with many students requiring extra help. Most of what they really needed was a plan of study and to learn organizational skills. I have written a guide for students and parents on how to achieve success in school. Included in this booklet was how to study for tests, write papers and how to organize classwork for study at a later time.

Swimming

I spent over twenty years as a swimming instructor and lifeguard, attending an aquatic school to become certified at eighteen. During that time I managed a swimming program for over six-hundred children and gave adult swim lessons after the pool had closed.
