Fitchburg State University, Massachusetts (Vocational Education)
I started teaching in a technical high school 25 years ago. During that time I taught Freshman through Seniors. I taught in the electronics shop specializing in Digital Electronics (the 7 basic "Gates" through to building and repairing computers and building and programming mini robots). I also taught analog electronics as well. After 18 years I left the public school, and I now teach in a technical industrial environment and I love it. I teach people from all over North America and have found the only people I can't help are those that don't want help. Between the classroom and leadership in many social organizations, I can adjust to the many teaching needs of my students. Everyone has the capacity to learn, the secret is delivering content in a way the student understands. I use an array of different teaching styles to maximize student learning.
I specialize in Electronics and Technology, but have strong aptitudes in most of the sciences. I have taught in a variety of places and systems from high school to after school programs to night classes, for an array of different topics. I work as an instructor during the days for an international company with some travel, but will mold students' schedules with mine should the need exist. I will not accept a job that is out of my ability to deliver at the highest standard, so I offer a free first consultation to develop a plan for, content, timing and scope, so the student (and family where applicable) have clear expectations on outcomes. I expect cancellation notice of 24 hours to adjust scheduling for myself and others.
As listed in my profile, I have a Bachelor's degree in Vocational Education as well as an Associates degree in Electronics Engineering. Many certificates from US Military as well as other certifications from MoreSteam University. I started teaching in a technical high school 25 years ago.

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 started as a short order cook in a diner and restaurant. I have been the head cook in 2 different churches, having cooked for 300 people. I have a ServSafe certification manager and am the standing head cook for the church I am currently in. I have tutored under a number of cooks in the industry over many years. My ServSafe certification number will be supplied upon request.
I have an associate's degree in electrical engineering. I have been teaching or working in the feild since 1975. I was trained in A, B, C school in the United States Coast Guard. I am certified by the state of Massachusetts in code 55 (Teaching electronics in a vocational environment). My bachelor's degree is in education in a vocational environment. I am also certified for teaching technology in the state of New Hampshire. I currently teach electronics as a Technical Trainer for an international company. Teaching License Numbers available on request.
I taught for 18 years in a public school and routinely prepared students for public speaking in delivery of projects to the class. I have been an instructor in many civic organizations and helped many adults speak and deliver in a room or to the public. (Organizations include Free and Accepted Masons, Order of the Eastern Star, and an International representative and Knights Templar.) I used to be a member of the Toastmaster club, and learned and taught with them for a year. I have been the nonreligious leader of 2 different churches and directed others in delivery of reports as well as delivery at annual meetings.
