Temple University, Phila., PA/ West Chester Univ.,PA. (B.S.)
I am originally from Southeastern Pennsylvania, West Chester, PA., and moved to Rochester in 1970 after graduating from college. I have three married daughters and many grandchildren. I majored in both Chemistry and Math because I enjoyed them. I went to Temple Univ., Philadelphia, where I learned Chemical Engineering Technology, and then went to West Chester Univ. where I learned liberal arts Chemistry and Math. In Rochester, I worked for Olin Chemical on McKee Rd. in the organic research lab for several years working with experimental chemicals like the anti-dandruff chemical, and other chemicals. Then for several years I taught at private schools in learning center experiences which is one to one teacher-student ratio. I liked that experience better than a traditional classroom teaching experience I had one year before graduating college. Since then I have worked at nursing homes as a nurse assistant, and I am now semi-retired, but all these years I have always loved and enjoyed math, chemistry, science in general, American History, camping, nature, family, church work, and helping others one to one. Oh, I love music and playing my trumpet, and my four grandsons also play trumpet quite well.
I am looking foreword to meeting and helping new people, and learning and teaching math and chemistry again. I love to help others and enjoy the pride of serving others and watching them improve. My philosophy is that subjects are not difficult, students just need some support and encouragement---an I can do it attitude. Anyone can learn with some help and some work. It helps when others believe in others that they can do it, nothing is impossible. This I believe, faith in myself and others which leads to success.

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.
Algebra was easy for me. In college I was a double major in science and math in college. I taught these in private high schools.
In college algebra/math and science were double major subjects for me. I taught these in private high schools where I was the supervisor in math and science.
I was a student pastor, associate pastor, and principal of two Christian schools. I finished seminary at St. Bernard's in Rochester, NY with a master's in divinity. The two schools used the Accelerated Christian Education program from Dallas, Tex. which is an individualized, learning center. I taught Sunday school and was a youth leader for teens many years. I specialized in Old and New Testament studies.
In college, chemistry was my major, having every kind of chemistry: chemI,II, physical, organic, inorganic, and grad level chemistry. I taught Chemistry in public and private schools, using the lecture method and learning center method(one on one). I was an organic chemist at Olin Chemicals for five years, and one summer at the DuPont experimental station in Wilmington, Del., both were pilot plants---where you scale up chemicals from laboratory size to large manufactory scale. Fun.
I spent six years in my high school marching band and concert band, some summer band too. I practiced and played in college. It was a hobby when my children grew up and now I have married children. I have four grandsons I introduced to the trumpet and tutored them. They too play very well in their school marching bands, concert bands, and jazz bands. We get together sometimes and play and I challenge them to play my harder music. I played for two summers in our community band when they had one.
