About Lee

I have taught in Jamaica, Taiwan, California, and Mississippi. I just completed (5/2011) 18 years in Mississippi teaching high-school World Geography and A.P. Human Geography. I am also certified to teach in Tennessee.

I hold seven college degrees: including A.A. Anthropology, B.A. Geography, M.A. International Affairs, M.A. Geography, M.S. International Agriculture, M.Ed. Curriculum and Instruction (high-school social Studies), and now I'm working on a dissertation in Geography Education from Texas State University.

To get a teaching certificate in California (where I also taught some community college) I was required to take the NTE (National Teachers Exam) and scored a 99 percentile in all the social studies (in 1993; I have the documentation).

Yet for all the accomplishments I have earned as a life-long student (I'm now an extremely athletic 64), I relish explaining the social world to students and helping with specific assignments. That's what I have been doing for the last 22 years!

Update: I taught at Hendersonville High School during the fall last year as an Interim Teacher, teachingWorld Geography and Honors Geography.

I have also taught English as a Second Language at a university in Taiwan, and English (literature and composition, along with the social studies) at a private school in Malibu, California. I have had other experience, also, as a tutor--in Jamaica, Taiwan, and California.

I understand fully that education must be student-centered. This is what I can do as a one-on-one tutor: Make learning personable and meaningful.

Approved subjects

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.

Social Studies

I have taught social studies in high school for about 22 years (and part-time at a couple of community colleges). I also have several college and university degrees in social studies subjects, including anthropology and geography. I addition, I have taken college/university courses in all the individual social-studies subjects. When I took the NTE (National Teachers Exam) in 1993, which covered all the social studies, I scored at the 99th percentile.
