I have recently retired from FGCU and am looking for part-work. I have had over 50 years of teaching experience in both public and private colleges, middle and high school classrooms and one-on-one instruction with students from age 6 to teenagers.
In tutoring I get to know a student much better than in a structured classroom setting. I hope they get to know more about me. It is much easier to adapt and adjust to an individual student's need, rate of learning, and personal style in a tutoring situation.

I am highly skilled in English. Part of this comes from the learning of other languages and knowing the root meanings of words and how sentences are structured. I have taught Bible for over 50 years, both in Sunday School and at University.
I am continuing to do free-lance lecturing on Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, the growth and development of Christianity and the vast array of literature of the western world--e.g., Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, Augustine's Confessions, Shakespeare's Hamlet, King Lear and Macbeth, Cervantes' Don Quixote, and 19th century British novels.

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.

My undergraduate major was in Biblical Studies. In addition, I have two degrees from two different seminaries (a Bachelor of Divinity from Anderson School of Theology, Anderson, IN, and a Master of Sacred Theology from Union Theological Seminary, New York, NY). I have taught Bible at the college/university level for 50 years.
