I am retired from being chaplain at a county jail. I am very acquainted with helping those who have not quite been able to keep up with the norm. I have a background of helping others. I graduated from both the University of Texas at Arlington and the Austin Graduate School of Theology with a 4.0 GPA. Although my profile shows my undergraduate degree to be in Criminal Justice, I have a double minor in English and Sociology. My training as a minister has provided me with excellent people skills.

I have home-schooled my own son who has Down's Syndrome, and he is a well-adjusted young man of 30 who reads about 5th grade level and has very good social skills. I previously owned a restaurant and made a point of hiring young men and women who were not able to get jobs elsewhere and taught them skills that others had thought impossible for them to learn. Helping another person understand what has previously been obscure to him/her is a delight for me.

As long as a student is willing to try, I will find a way. I believe I have the ability to instill self-confidence and allow that student to shine.

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 a Master of Theological Arts from Austin Graduate School of Theology. I have pastored a church and have been Chaplain at Burnet County Jail for almost two years. I scored the second highest grade that had ever been made on my Bible Competency test required for graduation. I graduated first in my class with a 4.0 GPA.

Public Speaking

I have pastored a church and have been a prison chaplain, conducting six church services per week. I have also been asked numerous times to speak a various meetings. One could hardly have done my job without being a reasonably qualified public speaker.
