I have been a high school teacher for nearly a decade and a half. I have taught a broad range of students of all ability levels. My job is most enjoyable when I am working with a student who wants to learn. My style of tutoring depends on student needs. I have worked for a decade in a private school with very small class size. During that time, I have learned to gear my teaching to what the students requires.

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.

Anthropology

While I did not receive an advanced degree, I spent two years studying towards a Masters in Anthropology / Archaeology. I have continued to follow the subject with great interest and have taught electives in Anthropology at the high-school level.

Archaeology

While attending school in Denver, Colorado I did Master's level coursework in Archaeology which included learning to write Maya hieroglyphics and field work in the front range of Colorado. I have continued my interest in the years since then, with an ongoing subscription to Archaeology magazine and personal studies of the archaeological history of the British Isles. While teaching high school, I offered multiple sessions of an Archaeology elective.

Aspergers

During my time teaching at a small, private school, I have been privileged to teach a handful of students diagnosed with Aspergers. The one thing I have found true is that the diagnosis is only the beginning of the story. While they may have some behavioral and learning characteristics in common, Aspergers students are as different from each other as they are from others. An educational plan must be tailored to the desires and challenges of each student to be effective.

Praxis

When I took the Praxis 1 test I received an 185-187 out of 190 possible points on all three basic knowledge tests. I received a 192 out of 200 points on my biology content knowledge test. For this score I was awarded a certificate of excellence from ETS.
