I am a semi-retired civil engineer that participated in the troops to teacher program at the end of my military career with emphasis on math and science in 4th through 8th grade. I held a teaching certificate for a number of years for this age group and subjects in the Commonwealth of Virginia, but never got the chance to use it. I had to use math to a great degree in my professional career and tutored students while I was in college and on active duty as they pursued advancement and self-improvement. I love math and want to be able to teach students to not be afraid of it, but to consider it a language of numbers that can be mastered. I also spend time as a tutor for adults with the Literacy Society in Virginia teaching them the basics of reading.

Most people consider me a natural teacher that is thrilled in the achievement of anyone I help. I never give up on a student. I love to help anybody achieve a personal goal.

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.
