About Ted


Bio

I love teaching and tutoring almost as much as I love learning! I have worked in education for the last thirteen years from pre-k to the graduate level and beyond, as a writing consultant in college writing centers and as a certified teacher. I have a broad body of knowledge with nearly 300 college credit hours and am a specialist in both science and literacy education. I plan to be a student until I cannot find a school to accept me anymore.

I love teaching and tutoring almost as much as I love learning! I have worked in education for the last thirteen years from pre-k to the graduate level and beyond, as a writing consultant in college writing centers and as a certified teacher. I have a broad body of knowledge with nearly 300 college credit hours and am a specialist in both science and literacy education. I plan to be a student until I cannot find a school to accept me anymore.

My favorite aspect of being an educator lies in helping students grasp ideas and skills that they didn't think they could master. To this end, I have made it a goal to learn as much about how the brain learns, assessing gaps in students knowledge that are undermining their current learning endeavors and finding ways to accommodate those gaps with specially developed approaches suited to their learning styles.

My philosophy is that every student can learn. My job is to identify which tools they need to succeed and help them to discover and utilize those tools. I find that I am better able to fulfill this mission in very small groups or in a one on one setting. I always try to connect with students and develop my lessons based on individual likes and dislikes, individual learning styles, and in a positive and reinforcing manner.

Finally, I feel that, as a tutor, I am a member of your student's learning team and work in that capacity.

I have always been a scientist, having won regional science fairs as a youngster. I have a very broad body of knowledge in science with coursework in chemistry, physics, biology, zoology, geology, geomorphology, astronomy, psychology, cultural anthropology, physical anthropology, linguistic anthropology, forensic anthropology, anatomy and physiology, archaeology. Additionally, I have worked in the field as an archaeologist at sites featured in National Geographic as well as centers for archaeological research, and I am an occasional Mad Scientist.

I feel that any exploration of science should be fun, first and foremost. I love tuto
