About Gary

My overall approach to teaching is to first establish what connection the student has to the subject. I have always felt that if there is no personal connection to the material by the student that the process of learning becomes memorization. With subjects such as English and History, finding a way in that connects with the lived experience of the student is key to making the subject come alive. Psychology in its foundation is largely rooted in the study of human culture and to a large extent literature and the use of language. With this in mind, my approach is very singular and student specific, giving each the opportunity to find a personal investment in the material.

I hold an associates degree in Liberal Arts, a Bachelor's in History and a Master's in Psychology. I am currently working on completing my Ph.D. in Psychology. I own and run a small publishing company in which I am the lead editor and I also run a writing service where I offer creative consultant services. I am a veteran of the US Navy where I was a supervisor and project manager for four plus years. I look forward to bringing my passion for teaching and learning to the table and putting them to work for you.
