I am currently on hiatus from study due to health issues. I use mastery learning methodology and techniques espoused by Lev Vygotsky in my instruction. My strengths are writing and information theory/Philosophy of Mind.

I can tutor in Government, Social Studies, Math, Psychology, Philosophy, Vocabulary, Grammar, reading, writing, technical and for Philosophical papers. I can also tutor at the elementary level for basic math, reading, vocabulary, and basic science through teaching and promoting an understanding of scientific method.

If the student is at the elementary level, parents are more than welcome to stay through the lesson with their child.

Subjects

Corporate Training

Grammar,

Grammar

Good grammar reflects well on the student in their daily life, and facilitates communication.
Proofreading

Proofreading

Proofreading is an important skill in ultimately saying what we mean, exactly. I use a focus in attention to details and a good knowledge of English syntax and grammar to unlock the proofreaders toolbox, their innate ability to see a clunky sentence. In a nutshell, we can't depend on spellcheck.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I use Vygotsky's mastery learning techniques, and correlate the subject to life, and how it fits in. I draw this from my own experiences, because it's easier to learn and retain if you understand the why,because it's more interesting then. I like to get students to where they have fun with math.
Elementary Science,

Elementary Science

I use Vygotsky's mastery learning techniques that I learned as part off my focus on developmental and educational psychology. I concentrate on keeping the fun in fundamentals. I help my students understand how important science is, and what exactly, scientific method is.

Reading

I enjoy opening new worlds to students, and reading is one of the keys.
Spelling,

Spelling

I trained in Psychology with a focus on educational and developmental psychology. I use techniques developed by Lev Vygotsky, which encourage a student to learn for learning's sake. I make the subject of spelling fun to learn.
Study Skills,

Study Skills

My educational background includes Educational Psychology, and I teach based on Vygotskyan techniques of mastery learning. This means I tend to customize each study program for each student, centered around their unique interests. I show them how the subjects studied relate to them in every day life. I also try to stimulate a love of learning for it's own sake, since our mind is the most effective tool we have and a sharp, incisive mind is our most valuable asset.
Vocabulary

Vocabulary

I use Vygotsky's mastery learning techniques, and correlate the subject to life, and how it fits in. I find this to be a very effective method. Correlation to any subjects applications in real life help motivate the student and show them why the subject is so important.

Writing

Writing

In studying Philosophy at Purdue, I had to spend a great deal of time writing papers, since Philosophy isn't conducive to multiple choice exams. During my study there, I was also the go to guy for draft critique, and checking format and citing for my fellow students. I will work with you as needed to help you develop your writing skills.

History

American History,

American History

I studied and passed US History at the college level with a 4.0 GPA. I have always had an interest in history, because if we forget our history, we repeat our mistakes. I want to pass this lesson on to the next generations.
Government & Politics,

Government & Politics

I was required, like all students to take Government classes at both the High School and University level. This tied in nicely with my interest in history as well as current events. Knowing how your government works is a critical skill for a person, and I teach the relationships between the government and the people, and how this relationship both empowers and limits both the citizenry and the government.
Philosophy,

Philosophy

Philosophy, we all have one, but what is Philosophy as a science? I teach critical thinking and analysis each how to ask the big questions and at least try to answer them. I studied Philosophy at Purdue for 3 years, and am currently on hiatus for health reasons. I can tutor up to the 300 level with confidence, though, and focus on Social Philosophy, Ethics, and the PreSocratics.
World History

World History

I studied World and US History at the University level. I have also had a lifelong interest in history. Those who forget their history are doomed to repeat their mistakes, whether that be a man or a nation.
