I am a multi- talented and multi-certified educator; having taught K-12, most academic subjects, and 6 areas of college. I have tutored, most recently, Guard recruits in math with a 100% passing rate. I use a unique system for the basics in math that carries over to higher processes. In addition, I demonstrate how one basic idea can lead to success in 80% of algebra problems. I feel it is a must to make math a tool that you carry "in your pocket" for life situations. I have taught math from K-college for 30 years.

None that I worked with failed the writing segment. As a professor, I have received rave reviews from students; I will share a few cases with you; one military member received praise for his improved reports after being in my class for four weeks, he began instructing others. I have had four students inspired to write books, one (a 42 year old nurse) wrote her first essay in my class. For six years, I was the only 5 star (rated by students) instructor on campus!

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.
