About Jerry

Greetings:

I have over 20 years' experience teaching on a personal basis in a variety of fields, from being a Field Training Officer with the Miami-Dade Police Department to being a professor at local colleges.

I have the ability to teach a variety of fields because of my diverse educational background, which includes a Bachelor of Arts, with a minor in American history, from Arizona State University to a Juris Doctorate from Saint Thomas University, School of Law.

I am a "people person" that has the natural ability to relate to and communicate with everyone on their individual level. This is a great advantage for me to find and tap into the learning potential of each of my individual students. In addition, I adore children of all ages. I raised 3 of my own children for many years as a single father.

I am passionate about tutoring, just as an artist is passionate about their art. I take great pride and satisfaction in watching my students fructify with knowledge.

I am flexible with my tutoring hours and locations. I can meet in your home, in a local library or after hours in a law firm located in the Davie-Cooper City area.

I look forward to meeting you and to being at your service.

Very Truly,

Jerry R., Sr.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Criminal Justice

I have 15 years experience as a uniformed law enforcement officer and detective, serving 5 years in Illinois and 10 years for the Miami-Dade Police Department. I was a Robbery Division Detective for the Miami-Dade Police Department.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Police Administration from McKendree University in Lebanon, Illinois.

I taught Crime Scene Technology for 3 years at a university in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Photography

I have many years of experience capturing images of crime scenes and accident scenes based upon my 15 years of law enforcement employment as a detective.

I taught photography for 3 years as one of the courses in Crime Scene Technology at a university in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Based upon the above, I can teach how to capture images without light, by using depth of field, by painting with light, and by freezing moving objects. I can also teach how to orient the subject within an image frame and the importance of background within an image frame.

Social Studies

Social Studies is a general studies course combining constitutional law, American government, political science, criminal law, and American history. I have already tested and proven my acumen in tutoring these subject areas on an advanced basis past the requirement for tutoring a general social studies course.

In addition, I taught Constitutional law, criminal Law, and an American history course at Keys College that included advanced topics of Constitutional law, American government, and political science. Therefore I have all of my teaching outlines and visual aids from these courses available for tutoring a social studies course.

Further, I hold a Juris Doctorate which included post graduate level courses in Constitutional law, American government, criminal law and political science.

Lastly, I also have a BA minor in American History, which included all of the above mentioned fields, from Arizona State University.
