SUNY Geneseo (English, Philosophy)
St. John's College (Master's)
I cannot imagine not being a teacher. I truly love learning and teaching. My only complaint is that we sometimes tend to get boxed in by categories and subjects.
My career has been wide-ranging. My first assignment for student teaching was High School English at a Rochester City School, my father's alma mater actually. My first paid job was Middle School English, ironically in the same building my mother went to high school. From there I moved to Maryalnd and taught Special Education and English. While there I earned a Master's degree in the "Great Books." This helped to open my horizons. It is a true classical Liberal Arts curriculum.
Back home in New York I was a stay-at-home dad. I taught some pre-school classes at the Southtowns' YMCA. At the same time I taught a couple semesters of Western Humanities at my Alma Mater, SUNY Geneseo. With my own daughters back in school, I was able to return to the classroom full time. I teach Global 9 and 10 at Canisius High School. Outside of the classroom we do a lot of work with spirituality and I read heavily in that area (i.e. I could help with religious instruction topics).
I completed advanced math courses in high school and at the Naval Academy. In addition, part of my Master's program included a semester working through the "Great Books" of Math and Science. My favorite was Euclid's Elements (Geometry).
I am excited to be able to tutor a huge range of topics. Being a personal expert, I would like to offer services to students with Attention Deficit Disorder. I also hope to sneak a bit of Math and Geometry in. Given my career path, I am most immersed in reading and writing skills as they relate to History. My students often tell me that my strongest characteristic is my personality and one-on-one teaching. I cannot imagine not being a teacher. I truly love learning and teaching. My only complaint is that we sometimes tend to get boxed in by categories and 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.
