My own son has ADHD, so I am very familiar with the challenges that this condition presents to the student. I have a lot of experience in both teaching and tutoring students with ADD and ADHD.

Patience is the most important quality that a a tutor must have when dealing with students with ADD/ADHD.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have more than 25 years of teaching experience in math and science subjects. I have taught at all levels from elementary to graduate school. The first thing I do with a new student is to get to know their learning style and look for topics to inspire their interest. A motivated student will achieve so much more success in life than ones who just go through the motions. I have extensive knowledge in curriculum preparation (I was a certified teacher in the UK and taught at levels equivalent to 5th grade through college). I prepare a comprehensive workbook for all of my students that include all of the materials they will need, and provide learning software for their laptops and references to online help that they will find beneficial. I create an individual plan of study for each of my students and update it each week as they make progress. Above all, I have the patience and flexibility to work with the student until they achieve the success.

JavaScript has become the premier language of choice in support of website development and provides a stunning array of capabilities.

Python

I have been programming professionally for 35 years in more than 20 languages and currently teach Python at Avila University. I have worked with the language in a teaching and tutoring role for about two years.

TEAS

I am a certified teacher in math and science and have taught a number of classes in English comprehension and reading.
