I have taught ABE and GED courses and adult literacy courses for many years and currently teach developmental reading and fundamentals of writing at the college level. I understand the student of today because I myself was a high school drop out, returned to school, received my GED, returned to school received my BS, returned to school received my MS and now in school pursuing a Ph D.My journey: from GED to Phd.

My intention and purpose are to help students succeed in their educational pursuits. My passion for myself and others is teaching and learning. My Master's degree is in Adult Education. I am a current candidate for a PhD at Capella University in Post Secondary and Adult Education. I love teaching adults and enjoy working with students in helping them to reach their full potential.

Approved 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.

Bible Studies

I am and seasoned Bible studies teacher for over twenty years in various churches in Rochester, New York, I have also been a superintendent in Sunday school for primary students as well as adults. I have taught children and adults. I teach adults currently at an area Baptist church. I love teaching.

I am a professional teacher, from preschool to a college professor.

College Counseling

In my career as a higher education educator and professor, I have had tremendous opportunities to offer counseling to students to help them develop the personal and academic help needed to meet their successful college experience. I have been there to guide students through their personal and academic challenges. I work with the student to find the course of action that best suits their individual needs. I have consulted with faculty and staff that offers a variety of educational workshops, lectures, and programs to the community campus community at large. I am at all times bound to confidentiality. I am dedicated to service to and with college students.
