Just retired from teaching. I have extensive experience teaching social studies (American, Global, Economics, Government, Video Editing) and Special Education (Resource Room in high school and grades 2 to 5)

I have written and collaborated on curriculum writing in both high school and elementary school.

I have successfully dealt with all types of students on most grade levels.

I believe that there are no short cuts to good writing. You cannot go from a thoughtless writer to a good communicator in one day . One must prepare, make notes, write and edit, write and edit. After continued practice, the process becomes second nature.
Good writing is more important today with the plethora of texting and e-mailing and the short cuts and abbreviations used in communication. Disturbingly, i have had students submit essays with text abbreviations. The English language needs to be preserved.

I understand the process of learning with my special ed experience. We all learn in different modalities and it is important the student learns at an early age where their strength in learning lies. I have a Masters in Special Education.

I have successfully taught, written and revised curriculum for different areas in social studies. I have successfully tutored students to pass the different Regent tests in high school. I have both a Bachelor and Masters in Political Science.

My philosophy is to cut out the extraneous material that too often confuses the student. I make it easier for the student to understand, linking the past with the present. But most importantly I make sure that the student experiences a sense of accomplishment and pride in mastering the subject.
