I am uniquely qualified to be a tutor or teacher in a number of different areas. First I have received degrees in Biology/Anthropology, Intercultural Communication, and most recently, a second Master's degree in Education. I have taught at K-12 and the college level both in the United States and abroad for over 25 years. At the Maricopa Community College system I was qualified to teach Anthropology, Biology, Business, Computer Science, and Communication.
I have successfully tutored hundreds of students. In addition I have had a business career for almost the same length of time. This includes seven years working for the Japanese government and private industry and as a sales manager for both the semiconductor and electronic security industries. I have the real world experience which makes teaching more relevant. It is essential for a teacher to make his subject relevant to the student. My method is to make the subjects I teach have meaning and excitement for the student and to find ways to make a connection with whatever interests the student may have. I have written or co-authored several books and numerous magazine and newspaper articles. My command of the English language is excellent. When you hire me as a tutor you will get all of this education and experience in one complete package. I am uniquely qualified to be a tutor or teacher in a number of different areas.

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.
As an undergraduate At NIU my minor was Anthropology - I went on to obtain a post graduate degree in Anthropology/Archaeology. I am very familiar with the four branches of American Anthropology - cultural, physical, linguistics, and archaeology. I studied Ancient Mayan at NIU with Stan Witkowski and started a coursework for a Doctorate in Archaeology at Arizona State University working with Christy Turner.

I have been teaching Biology in community colleges, universities, and high school for almost 20 years. I love micro, cell, and ecology particularly but enjoy all parts of Biology. Let me help you - you won't find a better more knowledgeable or enthusiastic tutor.
As part of my degree in Biology I studied genetics and botany. In the Maricopa Community College System I taught several Botany courses. I also worked for DeKalb Agriculture an Illinois company that was genetically re-engineering corn plants for industrial use. I am thoroughly acquainted with Plant Biology and evolution.
Genetics has long been a favorite subject of mine. I have taken several genetics courses at Syracuse and Northern Illinois on the way to a B.S. in Biology. In Dekalb as a student, I worked for Dekalb Ag doing research to help develop different strains of corn for worldwide distribution. I continue today to take an avid interest in the latest discoveries and technologies as genetics will continue to play an even more important role in the future of mankind.
I have a master's degree in Communication which includes rhetoric and public speaking. For three years I was VP of Valley toastmaster;s. In Japan I successfully coached a number of high profile businessmen and politicians to give speeches. I have also taught speech in community colleges and universities.
