I have taught in Jamaica, Taiwan, California, Mississippi, and Kentucky. I completed 18 years in Mississippi teaching high-school World Geography and A.P. Human Geography, and five years in kentucky teaching the same subjects. I also am certified to teach in Tennessee.

I hold eight college degrees: A.A. Anthropology, A.A.S Mining Reclamation, B.A. Geography, M.A. International Affairs, M.A. Geography, M.S. International Agriculture, M.Ed. Curriculum and Instruction (high-school social Studies), and a Ph.D. Geography Education from Texas State University (2013). All this shows that I am a life-long student.

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 athletic 70), I relish explaining the social world to students and helping with specific assignments. This is what I have been doing for the last 27 years!

Update: I just retired (2017) from teaching social studies at a High School.

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.

Besides having researched and written dozens of college course papers, I produced a Master's thesis and a PhD dissertation.

Soon, I shall look for a publisher. I authored an entry in the Mississippi Encyclopedia (published May 2017).
