About Neil

I can help you or your child become more proficient in the following subject areas: English, grammar,reading, and the natural sciences (1-8th grades). I've been tutoring/substitute teaching in the Sault Area Schools for the last two years now. I've worked with special needs students and in regular classrooms. I have a reputation for being a patient, caring person who sincerely enjoys seeing people succeed.

Besides experience tutoring in the classroom I also have extensive experience in writing; I've written three books and hundreds of articles. I am constantly updating my knowledge in this area by reading books on grammar and writing. I also do a great deal of editing. It's a subject area I truly love. I am competent to teach in this subject to students in grades 1-12.

My secondary experience and knowledge is in the natural sciences. I'm a horticulturist with an extensive knowledge of soil science. I am competent to teach the natural sciences up through grade 6.

In addition, I have administered the GED test for the State of Michigan. I am familiar with the requirements of this test and believe I am competent to help students prep for the test, including the mathematics portion of the test.

I prefer to work with students, including special needs students, who are motivated, but have difficulty learning in these subject areas.

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.

Basketball

I coached 5th and 6th grade basketball for five years and one year of "AAU," which was a travel team of middle school girls. During my stint as a coach we won two championships. Also during this stint I spent much time outside of coaching studying the fundamentals of coaching, play making, etc. I played basketball up through the 12th grade.

Photography

I have experience photographing pictures for articles, in other words, my pictures have been published. I'm proficient in the use of a Canon Rebel SLR digital camera, specifically. I've studied all aspects of photography, including lighting, portrait photography, action, landscape and nature photography. I even studied courses in the New York School of Photography program, but didn't never received a certificate (I studied from another student's materials from the course).

Special Needs

I graduated from Lake Superior State University with a BS in Psychology and a Minor in Counseling. I worked in a group home for mentally and physically handicapped individuals for over three years and one year as a vocational rehabilitation evaluator in what was then called a "sheltered workshop." This was back in the late 70's, early 80's. Most recently, I've become the regular substitute teacher in a special needs classroom at Sault Area High School in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. References are available upon request.

Tennis

I'm 57 years old. I've been playing tennis since I was 10 years old. I once attended a summer camp which taught formal skills in tennis. I also gave private lessons to two kids one summer while still in high school. I'm a "quick study" who will make sure to brush up on the latest techniques before offering my services.
