Bio

I have been a teacher for the past forty-four years, teaching at all levels from elementary to high school. I taught for thirty-two years in Barbados at the secondary school level, one year at the middle school level and eleven years at the elementary school level. The latter two were in the Bronx, New York. Although I have taught many subject areas, Mathematics has been my primary focus.

I have been a teacher for the past forty-four years, teaching at all levels from elementary to high school. I taught for thirty-two years in Barbados at the secondary school level, one year at the middle school level and eleven years at the elementary school level. The latter two were in the Bronx, New York. Although I have taught many subject areas, Mathematics has been my primary focus.
My education consists of a teaching certificate in Secondary Education for Erdiston teachers' College Barbados with the emphasis in Math and Science; a bachelor of Science in Psychology from Howard University, Washington, D.C and a masters Degree with emphasis in Education and Developmental Psychology from Andrews University Michigan. I am New York State certified in childhood education (K-6) and recently completed a certificate in the teaching of Middle School Math from City College, New York,in addition to a few other teaching qualifications.
I have also taught Mathematics at an adult level institute in Barbados and tutored Math at the Bronx Seventh Day Adventist Church for at least five years.
I have a keen interest in students and their success and believe that given the correct environment and stimulation all students can succeed and reach their fullest potential. I see tutoring and teaching as a means of equipping students with the techniques, skills, attitudes and behavior necessary to achieve their goals. That is why as far as possible, I use real life situations and experiences to teach the subject area. Depending on the nature of the material to be learned role play, drama, research, and discussion play a major role in my teaching. I am confident that, once the student is disciplined and willing to work hard and persevere and as long as parents are willing to cooperate with me, then the student can have abundant success. I am only the facilitator of that success.
I anxiously await the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of more students. My motto is: "If I can help somebody as I pass life's road then my living will not be in vain."
