My personal philosophy regarding education and tutoring: I am passionate about education. As a history major, I have studied cultures, governments, and peoples. Education allows people to change the world, beginning with their own. I have been fortunate to have taught, tutored, and continue to teach at the University. I believe it is the responsibility of a teacher to guide students, be fair and consistent, organized, and dedicated to helping students gain the life/study skills to overcome academic obstacles and achieve success.
I have 24 years experience in education: 13 years High School Social Studies (Remedial - Advanced Placement courses: Global/World History, U.S. History, European History, History through Literature, Foreign Policy, Government Studies); 7 Years K-12 District Administrator/Supervisor of Reading Specialists/Professional Development to include teachers how to teach Reading, Vocabulary Building, and Dimensions of Learning (study skills, problem solving, decision making); 6 Years College Instructor experience (Syracuse Univ, Univ. of South Carolina, and Univ. of Phoenix)--subjects: Psychology, Philosophy, American History, Critical Thinking, U.S. Constitutional History, Political Science, European History, Art History and General Education courses to improve reading, writing, and study skills. I have written and published curriculum, conducted teacher workshops for curriculum development and instructional practices.

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.
I have a Master's degree in Education. I have taught Study Skills courses at the University of Phoenix (reading, writing, time management, preparing for tests, and strategies for public speaking presentations). I have also tutored student teachers at the University of South Carolina on improving their study skills and give strategies on how to help their students. As a secondary teacher for 20 years, I have taught hundreds of students. As part of my curriculum/lesson planning at the beginning year, I spend time to give my students various strategies and ways to improve their study skills to improve their academic grades/success.
