About Michigan

My unwavering drive for success in education and to see students succeed have led me to a life in education over the past five years. I have worked as a Geography teacher, at the prestigious Campion College in Kingston, where I have helped students develop an appreciation and a greater understanding of geography and map reading.

I have taught students from all ethnic and social backgrounds, predominantly ages 12-18. Additionally, I have also been an active tutor to college and university students studying earth and geosciences at the undergrad level. In this capacity, I have tutored students in core earth science courses (see below) and thesis development, writing, editing and presentation.

Not only have I focused on students achieving academic success but, I have also helped to mold and shape them for the future. Many of these students who have made the transition from high school to college and I have maintained a strong relationship throughout today.
I specialize in result, I am highly motivated to produce excellent results when my students are equally motivated to succeed and display the drive and diligence required for such achievement.

I have six solid years of excellent academic training in Geology at the Bachelors and Masters level. I graduated my undergrad program in Geography and Geology (double major) with honors. Subsequently, I was offered the European Union's Erasmus Mundus Scholarship to pursue a masters in Geomaterials and Geological Resources where I completed the program in 21 months.

I have tutored several university students in Geology over the years and these students have gone on to become top students in their respective disciplines. Work done with students in courses like but not exclusive to: Geochemistry, Energetic Resources, Environmental Impact, Geological Mapping, Hydrogeology, Metallic Resources, Non-Metallic Resources, Sampling Techniques, Geophysics, and Geotechnical Engineering have been a huge hit.
I have also had huge successes with assisting students with thesis development, writing and presentation.

I have taught Geography at Campion College for over five years. During this period I have led a cohort of students to the Caribbean Examination Council's (CXC) Geography exam in 2011 where I gained a 100% pass rate. This was a first in the school's history. Also, two of my students were given outstanding awards for their achievement in the same exam; they were placed 2nd and 3rd in Jamaica and 6th and 8th in the Caribbean.

As a result of my successes in the classroom, the institution saw an increase by 120%, the number of students opting to take Geography at the CXC level. Also, with the achievements of my students over the years, Campion's Geography Department became Jamaica's top Geography department and Campion subsequently became the best high school for Geography in Jamaica.

If you are finding geosciences difficult, I am your go to tutor. I make it simple and fun. I specialize in producing results; tried, tested and proven.
I am extremely professional, efficient, and courteous. I provide constructive feedback to all my students and outline major strengths and weaknesses in order for them to excel. I respond to concerns and I constantly improve my product to serve my students effectively. Contact me and let's get class started.
