About Lee

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

As of Summer 2017, I have completed more than two years in an intense study of African American history. From this research, I have written a 450-page general historical geography focusing on a small region in Western Kentucky.

Anthropology

I hold an AA Anthropology and have taken graduate courses in the subject.
I carried out research and authored a report in Jamaica for U.S. AID (smallholder farming).
I worked on archaeological digs in Belize (Maya) and England (Roman fort) and worked on a research project in central Mexico with EarthWatch (colonial churches).

Social Studies

I have taught social studies in high school for about 26 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.

Writing

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

I am now completing (July 2017) a book-length manuscript on the general historical geography of Muhlenberg County and Western Kentucky, focusing on the African American experience. Soon, I shall look for a publisher.

I authored an entry in the Mississippi Encyclopedia (published May 2017).
