About Joe

As a retired elementary school educator, I feel I have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with others. I taught elementary school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for 25 years. We had to be able to impart the proper information in each subject area to our students. Those areas included mathematics, English, science, social studies/history, reading, and spelling.

In addition to this teaching work, I also spent eight years as a tutor for Ph.D. students and post-doctoral fellows at our local university while we lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In short, I feel that I possess a great quantity of experience and information which should be shared with others.

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.

Social Studies

As a elementary teacher for 25 years, I was obliged to teach Social Studies as part of our core curriculum. For me Social Studies went beyond what we could learn in our textbook. It extended itself into current events, like September 11th, or the birthday of a famous inventor. Whatever was interesting, topical or newsworthy was part of Social Studies for me.
