About Penny


Bio

My love of learning is evidenced by my 4 college degrees. It was never my plan to obtain so many degrees, but I simply loved both Political Science and History. Once it was pointed out to me that my extra credits in History could become a second Bachelor's Degree with just a few select courses, that is what I did.

My love of learning is evidenced by my 4 college degrees. It was never my plan to obtain so many degrees, but I simply loved both Political Science and History. Once it was pointed out to me that my extra credits in History could become a second Bachelor's Degree with just a few select courses, that is what I did. After a year of no promising career opportunities, I obtained my Master's in Public Administration (MPA). While gainfully employed as a budget analyst, I realized that I was intelligent enough to attend law school. I became an attorney and practiced for over twenty years, but I realized that I enjoyed explaining the process more to others than I enjoyed doing it.

Nothing makes me happier than to being able to share knowledge with others, i.e., to explain not only the subject matter, but why it is the way it is. I work at engaging the student in a give and take procedure. That way the student's mind works through the process and is more likely to retain information.

Motivation is half of the battle. I was not a brilliant student; I was a consistent one with a lot of motivation. I will work with the student to try to make the learning process enjoyable. I will seek ongoing feedback from the student to make sure they understand what I am explaining.
