Bio

I have been teaching and tutoring students for more than thirty years and I have loved doing it. My approach is to work closely with students to draw out the potential that even they may not know they have. Many of my former students have thanked me for believing in them and giving them the tools to succeed. I'm still in touch with several and for some I have even become an honorary member of their family.

I have been teaching and tutoring students for more than thirty years and I have loved doing it. My approach is to work closely with students to draw out the potential that even they may not know they have. Many of my former students have thanked me for believing in them and giving them the tools to succeed. I'm still in touch with several and for some I have even become an honorary member of their family.

As a former journalist, I am passionate about teaching students to write clearly, support their points, and stay on subject. As an author, I emphasize the importance of knowing how to tell a good story. As a voracious reader, I encourage students of all ages to find stories they love, both fiction and nonfiction, and use those stories to learn and grow. I'm used to starting from whatever level students are on and patiently bringing them to a higher level of academic success.

I work hard to tailor what I'm doing to the needs of each individual student. I'm professional and organized, but also friendly and warm. Students know that I care. I'm true to my word; when I say I will do something, I do it. I have a very long history of finding ways to engage students and move them forward. I have a level of familiarity with pedagogical research that's relatively rare in the field of teaching and tutoring.

When I retired from teaching, I wrote a book about my experiences and lessons learned over twenty years of teaching at one high school in Rhode Island. The book was published in 2014. It's not a bestseller but it has garnered many favorable comments from diverse readers, including Diane Ravitch, the well-known educational historian. Over my lifetime, I've published three books, countless articles and, more recently, opinion pieces on education in local newspapers. I'm a "highly qualified" teacher with lifetime certification.
