Wayne State University (Chemical Engineering)
My experience as a school basketball coach, student of golf instruction and parent of a special needs child make me an excellent choice to provide tutoring services for individuals. I am a recently retired engineer with a passion for sports and people. I enjoy seeing students progress in their skills and offer patience and a logical approach to the learning experience.
As an instructor, I will evaluate the students strengths and weaknesses and offer realistic mutual goals and timing to achieve them. I will also provide practice drills to work on between sessions.
As a parent of a child with cerebral palsy, I have developed the patience and skill to keep the special needs student focused and on task, set realistic goals and offer enthusiasm for success.
Having played basketball until recently and coached elementary, high school and recreation teams, I have developed programs that have taught fundamentals and built successful players that are also good team players.
In learning to play golf and having an engineering background, I fully understand the mechanics of the golf swing and can readily recognize any deficiencies. Rules and etiquette are also important to enjoying and succeeding in this very satisfying personal sport. Drills and other teaching techniques are also offered for those just learning to play.
My availability is flexible with most days, evenings and weekends open for instruction at a mutually acceptable location.
I look forward to working with you and most importantly, seeing you advance in your skills. You will find me to be a patient and dedicated instructor.

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 have taught basketball as a coach to students in grades 5 thru 10 as a school coach. I have coached recreation basketball to high school boys. I have played basketball competitively for over 35 years.
I have over 30 years of experience as a golfer. I have had formal training in evaluation of the golf swing and its mechanics. I am educated and patient and can teach the rules and etiquette that are fundamental to enjoying the sport.
