Every week a colleague and I teach very basic computer skills at a local community center in Harrisburg, PA.   I am astounded as to the amount of computer illiteracy there is in Central PA.  It is almost 2015 and by now, computers have become more affordable and accessible.  The one thing that they have not become is easy to use.  Tables and smart devices have rattled... read more

It may be mincing words to some, but teaching is different depending on the objective. On the other side of the table, the learner, too, faces a different paradigm given whether he or she is present to learn a general subject, a subject that they must know for a vocation, or to understand concepts missed the first time around.

This is really exciting for me. I fell in love with Spanish in 9th grade, even went on to study Spanish at La Universidad Internacional de Guadalajara, studied business and literature in Spanish at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and continued my Spanish studies at Columbia International University. I pastored at a hispanic church in Columbia, SC. In fact, my first sermons... read more

I love kids and I love learning.  I strongly believe that every student can learn and will learn when provided the necessary tools.  Kids don't  always learn, during school hours, what they need to become successful.  Tutors help bridge the gap between unsuccessful and successful students.  Tutoring provides the the student with the opportunity to receive one on one... read more

Tutoring to me means helping students understand material and gain confidence using newly acquired skills. Tutoring to me means guiding students through mental roadblocks and better preparing them for the future. Tutoring to me means setting students up for success by making sure they can explain how they got an answer. I fear, however, that for some students tutoring means paying... read more
