I am a retired teacher with the St. Johns County School System, having taught Honors Physics and Physical Science between 2006-08, as well as a former Flagler College adjunct faculty member who conducted ten course sections in the Religion department between 2003-06. I also tutored in two of the county's elementary schools in math and literacy enhancement between 2010 and 2012 just prior to taking on a clerical assignment with a small church in St. Augustine. My methodology is to assess the knowledge base and motivation of my students, and to show them how a deeper knowledge and appreciation of science and math can not only increase their potential economic worth, but also enhance their understanding and enjoyment of the world.
Currently I am a part-time priest administrator at a local Catholic church. I am also a first-time novelist, and my book was published in November, 2014.

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.
I am a semi-retired minister, and former schoolteacher and tutor in subjects including math, physics and physical science, and reading, among others. I have been a resident of St. Johns County since 2003, and have effectively served hundreds of students, including undergraduates at Flagler College. I have six grandchildren, and am well disposed to work with school children of any age, having also tutored at R.B. Hunt Elementary School in years gone by.
I am a semi-retired minister with an bachelor's degree in electronics engineering technology. I have taught physics and related subjects in the St. Johns County District public schools, as well as tutored both in schools and privately. My methodology is to help the student gain "the big picture" of the topic under consideration, as it relates to the larger academic subject, in this case algebraic mathematical reasoning, thereby increasing "math sense" as opposed to mere problem solving.
I taught Physical Science at Bartram Trail High School - including the Ninth Grade Academy - between 2006 and 2008. I also taught the subject at a private school in the St. Augustine area during academic year 2008-09. My own academic background includes an undergraduate degree in Electronics Engineering Technology. My teaching style is largely "conceptual" in nature, emphasizing core understanding of a scientific subject, and not just knowing how to manipulate formulas.
I have an undergraduate degree in electronics engineering technology, and am a current and active member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
I have taught high school physics at the professional level in the St. Johns County, FL, School District (Bartram Trail High School), having also tutored other students in other schools.
Also, my manner and "style" are very student friendly. I was one of only five faculty members (out of 140) at Bartram Trail asked to hand out diplomas at their 2008 Graduation Exercises.
