I began tutoring clinical biology and social science in undergraduate school and continued through graduate school.
I had an extremely rewarding and meaningful career in education in combined years of high school and college teaching. Subjects designed and developed in curriculum and practice included English and a Second Language, history, philosophy, psychology, economics, biology, and social science.
Several years of work in the Governor's Office of Pennsylvania, 4 years of honorable service in the United States Marine Corps and time spent in private industry are included my overall work experience
I have two daughters, one a young but accomplished physician and a younger daughter still in her public school years. Education has been in my family for generations and is a driving force for my drive for excellence.
Philosophy of Education
Tutoring becomes a meaningful educational experience when the student is able to learn effectively. Learning should not be a painful experience but an experience of challenge, effort, discovery, and accomplishment. Each student's experience learning is always a small part of a larger whole.
Discovering a new talent for reading, studying, learning, and organization can be a life altering experience for any student confronted with the sometimes overwhelming process of "learning." Learning is a lifelong process so gaining skills early will provide satisfying rewards for many years ahead.
Twenty five years of athletic coaching has complemented so much of my educational history. I am available for consultation on a child's education and interplay with athletics, both in the classroom and on the court and playing field.
