I attended and Graduated SUNY Cortland in 2009. I majored in social studies/education with a minor in history. In my last semester I changed majors and graduated with the Degree of "Bachelor of Arts" in History. I took and completed all teaching courses at Cortland. The only thing I did not complete was student teaching in the classroom; however, I have over 100 hours of actual classroom time working with students in rural and urban schools. I also was an Asst Strength and Conditioning Coach for the C-NS High School Football Team. I have always striven to make learning fun, dynamic, exciting and most of all interesting. I know what it is like to have an uninteresting teacher/professor; I never wanted to be that educator.
I set up and designed group settings for projects, test taking, mid-term exams and final exams in college. I instructed others how to set up, gather and present themselves in public speaking and in the classroom. Planning, Preparation and Presentation is everything but improvisation should never be underestimated. Thinking on the fly can make or break a presentation.
There were a few classes I struggled with and I needed a tutor to help me complete and pass, so I know what it feels like to need a little extra help in understanding and comprehending subject matter.
I have been a avid and active outdoors person. I love biking, hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, sky-diving and most of all bodybuilding. I have tutored, trained and advised thousands of people 18 - 80 years of age to a happier, healthier and better way of life through exercise, diet and nutrition. Once again proper planning is the key to success.
I know and understand that learning can be fun and exciting and at times challenging. I have worked with young adults 13-19 and non traditional students in a learning environment that is dynamic and individualized. Not every student learns the same way nor do they learn at the same rate. Knowing how to focus that person's needs and learning abilities makes the difference between a fun learning experience or an agonizing frustrating ordeal. I look forward to those challenges and showing students that success is within their grasp and within their abilities.

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.
