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.
My students studied our history from the landing at Plymouth Rock, the Civil War, through the present to include the struggles for equality. Each struggle had its own cultural, environmental, economic,and political issues.
In my course entitled Strategies for Learning Success, my students explored the academic,
social and personal skills necessary for a smooth transition from high school into college. The objective here was to apply critical thinking tools in their personal and academic development. The classroom was a laboratory that began with a plethora of self-assessments (e.g.an abbreviated Myers/Briggs, David Kolb's Learning Style Inventory,and the DISC Behavioral Style)to ensure that each student could integrate themselves into being part of an effective learning community.
In this course, I examined the learning theory as it applies to ways of successfully training students in communication skills,public speaking, presentation development, testing, note-taking, group dynamics, learning styles, goal attainment, and resume building.
My Criminal Justice course examined the American criminal justice system which consists of law enforcement agencies, prosecution and defense attorneys, courts, and correctional institutions and agencies. The general course objectives were to distinguish the difference between criminal law from other laws and to explore what constitutes a felony, misdemeanor, and petty offense with their ramifications. At the conclusion of the semester, I conducted a field trip that allowed my students to witness first hand a criminal trial in the Ninth Circuit Court. As a Criminal Justice Instructor, my students mastered the theories in the scientific study of crime and justice practices. This course examines the nature, dynamics, and the causes of crime and criminal behavior.
As a Government & Politics Instructor and a Public Administrator with 20 years experience, I designed this course beginning with a comprehensive explanation of how the Greek Roman, and French governments influenced our present US government. Course objective #1: to explore our three branches of government (legislative,judicial,and executive) and how the members are elected/appointed.Course objective #2: to develop a clear understanding of the structure and functioning of government and to develop critical thinking while analyzing the decision making process. The goal was to present to my students an understanding of the typical patterns of the political processes and behavior and their consequences to explain or justify these procedures.
