About Flint

I've been tutoring for awhile now, it's great to get to know a person and watch as they realize that whatever problem is in front of them is not beyond their understanding. I love helping students to get there, it is very satisfying to me when a student gets to a point where they don't need me.

Most math teachers try to convince their students that math is extremely difficult and that only the most intelligent people can do it. Math is precise, but it doesn't take a great mind to do it. I manage it just fine.

My degree was in Arthurian studies, so I had to learn all about the findings or Welsh, Scottish, and English sites in my studies. I don't have a degree in archaeology, but I know a lot about it.

I've taught world history at the college level, so I can probably handle anything that comes up.

Learning isn't about a teacher lecturing students, it's about a relationship. I guide and help the student get where he or she needs to go but there has to be an interplay or the student never learns how to get there on their own.

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.

Martial Arts

I attained a black belt in Kempo-Goju, a style which utilizes Chinese Kempo and Japanese Goju in addition to elements of Judo, Jujitsu, Aikido, and Jodo. I am a passed nationally ranked fighter. I have taught martial arts for over thirty years.

Religion

Completely familiar with world religions from the generation of the Great Goddess in prehistory, through the addition of pantheons at the dawn of history. Aware of the basic traits of each culture group (Indo-Europeans, Ural-Altaic, Afro-Asiatic, Native American, Polynesian), and the universal consistencies as demonstrated by Joseph Campbell. Knowledgeable of all the major religions in world history up to and including Christianity and the Islamic religion.

Writing

I am a published academic author and have also done fiction novels and short stories.
