I retired from the Escambia County School District in Pensacola, Florida in June 2010. In my years of teaching, I have taught adults, High School students, and Middle School students. I love teaching very much, and I miss it. I have had experience over the years in tutoring students on the side. The greatest thing I enjoy about teaching is seeing the expression on a students face when they learn something for the first time, and tutoring gives a teacher a lot of those first time learning expressions.
As far as my personal life goes, I have been married 36 years to a great woman. She gave me four children who are all grown. My children gave me eleven grandchildren. I am very proud of my children and grandchildren. I love being with them. In my spare time, I enjoy camping, hunting, fishing, teaching Sunday School, singing with the Church choir, and working with the Community Food Pantry sponsored by our Church.
I was in charge of an Adult Basic Education (ABE) lab for 5 years. I helped both adults and High School age students pass the Test for Adult Basic Education (TABE) and the GED test. I taught them individually how to solve the math problems on the tests consisting of Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, and Basic math. In addition, I had to teach language skills, writing skills, reading skills, and science skills to be able to pass these tests.
The last eight years of teaching before retiring, I taught The Gulf Power Academy at West Florida High School in Pensacola, Florida. This program was a science program that included electrical engineering theory and physical science. This program was a 4 year program that started with freshman students and ended with senior students. My students earned 20 hours of college credit at Pensacola Junior College (Now called Pensacola State College).
I have a B.A. Degree in Ministerial Studies from Southeastern College (Now called Southeastern University) in Lakeland, Florida. I studied the books of the Bible, both Old Testament and New. I continue to study the Bible now, and I currently teach a Sunday School Class at The first Baptist Church of Holt.
I enjoy teaching very much, and I look forward to helping you. My style is easy going. I try to teach as I would like to be taught. That is with patience and understanding.

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.
