I have experience teaching all grades from Pre-K to 12th grade for nearly two decades. I have taught in public, private and charter school environments. As a supervisor and LEAP Leader for the Philadelphia Regional Library's after-school program, I have tutored, mentored, and created programs for local school aged children. I have also tutored and mentored school age children in my home setting helping them to excel in the classroom.
As a Journalism professional, I bring to the table a unique perspective having more than 20 years in the broadcasting field. I have written news, edited and produced programming, and served as a radio personality, host and as an announcer. Working primarily alone in the field, I have come to enjoy the one-on-one experience of tutoring and helping someone learn and grow. Being able to give someone concentrated attention, I have been able to have positive effects, and establish lasting rapports with students and parents.
I have real life expertise in these fields of study. Not only do I have several years of experience in these subjects, I actually enjoy them, and am passionate about spreading that joy.

I have been a student of the Bible since I was a child (for over 30 years). I have attended several bible study classes over the years in various denominations. I taught religious studies in private Christian schools, and taught Sunday school in church environments. I watch religious programming daily, and participate in religious events regularly. I have a monthly blog that I update weekly where I encourage readers to meditate on God's Word. My methodology for tutoring this subject would be to facilitate learning of the Scriptures while helping a student to develop a love and passion for Bible studies.
I have nearly 20 years experience as an educator. As an in-home tutor, I assisted students with homework and classwork, helping to build their confidence, improve their test scores, and bring them at or above grade level. I served as a supervisor for after-school programs, including the Free Library of Philadelphia. I look forward to meeting new people and helping them improve their skills.
