There is joy in learning. We can find it, no matter what the assignment, subject or situation.

Learning is simple. We learn when we want to learn and don't learn a thing if it isn't interesting, exciting, fun, and relevant.

Learning happens fast, insanely fast...WHEN IT MATTERS. The brain is always learning. Learning does not require coercion. Learning must be meaningful. Learning is incidental. Learning is collaborative. The consequences of worthwhile learning are obvious. Learning always involves feelings. Learning must be free of risk.

I have taught children in elementary, middle, high school and college both as a paid instructor and volunteer. I continue to stay involved with young people as a mentor, tutor and advocate. I am also a certified literacy tutor.

Subjects that I feel very comfortable learning with students are literature, general math including algebra, social studies, introductory statistics and business courses.

As a tutor, I want the learner to approach the assignment in terms of both the short-term objective and the long-term relevance.

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.

Public Speaking

I enjoy public speaking ever since my first speech class in high school. I have taught debate classes in middle school, mentored high school speakers for community events and am a frequent speaker on topics relating to public education reform and issues. Perhaps, most importantly, are the numerous times I have spoken professionally as a trainer or subject matter expert
