Dear Parents and Students,
I am currently a candidate for a Masters degree in American history from Providence College. The tutorial income will support tuition expense.
I have been engaged in writing in policy areas and have begun fiction writing. I tutored in writing and reading at VIPS (Volunteers in Providence Schools). I have a Certificate of Accomplishment in successful completion of the Adult Basic Literacy and Conversational English Tutor Training Program-Literacy Volunteers of America, March 3, 2003). I also have just received a Certificate of Appreciation from The Rhode Island Family Literacy Initiative (May 2012).
I have a background in the retail banking field, having served as personal banking counselor and moving up to mortgage interviewer, and then Director of Visa with signature authority to lend in various lending vehicles-equity lines of credit, auto loans, personal loans, and Visa cards. My lending record was excellent.
I come from a rabbinical (teaching family) and wanted to in that tradition study the Bible-and therefore studied in Jerusalem at a Seminary there for a year. In recent years I have kept that study up and given homilies in my synagogue. The English translation of the Bible is important because it demonstrates proper use of that language.
In studying history I am focusing on the dynamics of English Law and its role in the formation of the American republic and its impact on development of American democracy which is crucial to American National Security in the world.
I enjoy walking (outdoors) vigorously-and generally do sixteen miles a week. I like to dress casual. I am a sensitive person and try to listen very closely to the student and his or her parents. I am particularly focused on solving reading or writing problems with the student. I am very good at honing in on a difficult learning issue with the student.
