As a father of five children, ranging in ages from 9 years through 24, with a background in law enforcement and education, I offer a wide range of intellectual, professional, and personal experiences highly relevant to the educational needs of today's students. Since 2006 I have been tutoring students from all socioeconomic backgrounds in conjunction with my work as a New York State Parole Officer, and since my retirement from parole in February of 2013, I am now interested in tutoring/teaching on a full time basis. My strengths lie in the humanities, history, English, and math up through algebra I. I would prefer to limit my travel to 15 miles but I am flexible. In addition, since last January I have also been working regularly as a substitute teacher in various districts in Monroe and Ontario Counties.

Criminal Justice

I have just retired from the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (formerly the New York State Division of Parole) where I worked as a field officer in both New York City and Rochester. Among my assignments with the division I was attached with the Intelligence Unit of Rochester Police Department from 1999 to 2006 as part of a violent crime task force. As a field parole officer for the past 25 years I supervised convicted felons released from state prison early, managing their reintegration into the community, investigating them and when necessary, executing arrest warrants and reincarcerating them. As a trained peace officer, fully armed, and having worked in several special units with other law enforcement agencies, I have experience in all phases of law enforcement. Of course I can offer references to corroborate my credentials. And I began my career as a probation officer in Chautauqua County for three years.
