About Ted

Hello, my name is Ted and I have been a classroom teacher, substitute teacher and tutor primarily serving students who require assistance learning a wide ranging of topics associated with secondary social studies subjects. I have experience teaching students from the remedial to the gifted levels, individually as well as part of the classroom environment.

My graduate education at Drexel University (MS in Library and Information Science) has also prepared me to conduct sophisticated research projects as well as work with online and print resources. Knowledge of such resources can enrich a students understanding of their topic and make a good project effort even better. At Villanova University, I earned my educational credentials to become a certified teacher. I earned my BA in Political Science and History at West Chester University.

Passion and empathy are two of the key components that I believe make a tutor a real asset for those who seek help to meet their learning goals. When I speak about passion, I am referring to passion about the subject matter that is being taught. My adult life has been devoted to learning the lessons that history and other social studies disciplines provide. Therefore, I try to show the student how the topic being taught impacts us in our present day. Students should be able to see how these topics provide relevance in their own lives.

A good tutor/teacher must have empathy for the student who is trying to learn a subject that may not always seem to make sense to them. Research has shown that persistence is a key attribute to achieve success. Tutors should direct their activities to help their students become not only a success in the class they are taking, but become independent life-long learners. Therefore, having empathy for the learning needs of the student is essential in the tutor - student relationship.
