My love for quietly contributing to the growth and success of the youth has been the driving force in my life-long career of teaching both high school and college classes both here in the United States and abroad. Out of this has grown my philosophy of learning to the effect that not only can everybody learn, we all learn all the time anyway whether consciously or unconsciously. And so, not only are we natural learners, we are naturally creative beings as well. No one comes to a learning situation a "blank slate". We all have something to contribute and it has been my privilege to help young people discover what their strengthens are and to assist them to
I have had many years ' experience teaching high school math in a regular ed classroom and being a classroom teacher to students with special needs both in a 'pull out" and "push in" settings.

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.
I studied Methods for the teaching of Mathematics during my Master's degree program at Wayne State University.
I believe I am qualified to teach this subject because I hold a Ph.D. degree in it from Wayne State University in Detroit.
Also, I have been an adjunct professor in it for over 15 years. During this period, I taught not only regular college students but I have also taught dual-enrolled inner-city high school students so that I have taught it across the student gamut.
I hold a post Master's Education Specialist Certificate (Ed.S) in Special Education, a Ph.D. in Special Education, a State of Michigan Professional License in Special Education (k-12), and am a retired Special Education Teacher with the DPS.
