Bio

Educationally, I have a BA (Sociology@UNC-Chapel Hill) an MA (Sociology@USC-Columbia), and 2 years toward a Doctorate (UM--Columbia). I have teaching experience in both the high school and community college arenas, and have substitute taught at all levels from first grade on up since my undergraduate days.

Educationally, I have a BA (Sociology@UNC-Chapel Hill) an MA (Sociology@USC-Columbia), and 2 years toward a Doctorate (UM--Columbia). I have teaching experience in both the high school and community college arenas, and have substitute taught at all levels from first grade on up since my undergraduate days. My work experiences, to name a few, range from sales and marketing to exploring for oil in the Atchafalaya Basin in Louisiana to demographics and market research in Virginia to sales and marketing and fixing up my 1909 originally built home today. An adequate education--working skills in reading, writing and math-- is essential to succeed both today and all tomorrows for the rest of your life!

When we first meet we shall discuss your tutoring needs and expectations and how I may assist you to achieve your goals. You must feel comfortable with me, and I with you, to succeed. We are both going to work hard and consistently to help you to learn. I shall prepare two or three or four hours for ever hour of tutoring, so you must also work to learn--with equal dedication and determination! After you come to understand the fundamentals of the subject, fuller mastery is more surely attained. Knowledge is cumulative, you must continue to travel the road, to learn, to continually increase your working knowledge! The old adage, "If you don't use it, you loose it" surely applies.....

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

Quite articulate in reading, writing and math, I am able to transfer basics to students to help them to build and expand their working knowledge. My full range of skills enable me to strengthen the student's required subject areas. In summary, lots of education, substitute teaching, life experiences, patience, and love of seeing little faces light up when learning fully equip me to tutor in Elementary (K-6).
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

Math is easy when one understands the basics of math. The skill of placing/rephrasing the problem/question in mathematical terms will enable the scholar to solve it accurately every time! Practice makes perfect.
Reading,

Reading

An avid reader since early elementary school, reading has always provided a path to travel all over the world, to meet peoples in foreign lands with lives and cultures strange and wonderfully different from my own. Also I have traveled to distant stars in far galaxies and interacted with alien beings in my science fiction travels. Reading provides both a portal to travel to different cultures, worlds, times and places. It also informs, enlightens and educates us all in mathematics, sciences, and all aspects of our wonderful world and universe beyond!

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Math is logical relationship among abstract symbols. Once one understands the basics and operations possible with these symbols--numbers--obtaining answers to math problems (the questions) become easy. The key is to read the math problem, to translate it into sequential operations to arrive at the correct solution--"answer".

Prealgebra

Math is simple when one understands the basics of numerical operations. Algebra involves the solution of puzzles--solving for unknown numbers when given the information needed to calculate the answer. Reading the question--understanding what it asks for--enables one to find the correct answer with simple math. Pre-Algebra involves such understanding of the question, use of the "knowns" given to solve for the "unknown"--the answer. Such skills are easily learned with guidance.

Ecology allows one to focus from close-up to nation-wide or world-wide on the processes of adaptation. One may look at how organisms thrive at thermal vents miles below the Pacific,for example, or how humans relocate nationwide in response to changes in population, environment,organization and technology -- Human Ecology.
