Shortly after completion of my B.A. degree, I received certification as a substitute teacher in the Toledo, Ohio public school system. I worked closely with teachers in a classroom setting at the Northwest Ohio Developmental Center in Toledo, Oh. I have tutored students in a variety of academic disciplines as part of my responsibilities in a number of direct care settings in Texas and Ohio.

I'm able to tutor in any basic educational area, but my special interest in history and civics and have a special strength in English language grammar, usage and composition, having had considerable experience as a professional editor and occasionally as a journalist. I look forward to helping students advance their skills in these particular areas!

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.

Bible Studies

I have been a lifelong student of the Bible. I have attended one year of seminary. I occasionally write pieces on the subject of religious/biblical history.

Guitar

I am qualified to teach beginning students basic fingering techniques, strumming and picking techniques, and chord structures. I am not qualified to teach the reading of music for guitar, only chord accompaniments, from sheet music.

I have played piano for over forty years. I am able to coach beginning students in music reading, fingering technique and proper rhythmic and modulation methods.

I have a B.A. in sociology with a 3.2 GPA at University of Toledo, Toledo, Ohio, 1979.
