Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.


My career of approximately 36 years, past and present, offers the student a unique ability to access 9 of the 13 occupational groups with solid experience.

I have been a VP of Production Control for a major US corporation, a successful business consultant for 15 years, and my having taught hundreds of students in several Tech Institutions, Colleges, and Universities business subject matter for many years.

Career Development

At McIntosh College I taught resume and career development. I am permitted to use the career development tools of R.L. Stevens Career Councellors by written authorization and have taught many hundreds of students using these methods.

College Counseling

It becomes necessary in every professors tenure to need to council students for course of study or to place them on a path they are not aware of their strengths. At McIntosh all professors were required to conduct counseling of students for student retention and success in passing the degree requirement. Many students were counseled for jobs and directed in presenting themselves as a readily viable and prepared student to face their new careers.

Computer Science

Having been with computers since the late 1970's, I have had the opportunity to work with computers when an amazing 256 bits was all computers had for memory. I have "evolved" with computers and have taken programming, basic and mid-advanced computer repair and have taught computer courses to students at the college level.


In my notes to a prospective student I outlined my educational experiences in having mastered my dual business/accounting degree which included macro/micro/ and managerial economics. My graduate studies included theoretical subject matter as it applied to business operational economics.

In addition to the above I have served as an Economics Development Director over the past 16 years and have worked with many clients/business leaders in developing economic models for both buyers and sellers to place over 2.5 million square feet of new businesses (157 businesses total) into an economic hub in middle New Hampshire.

Locally in Tennessee I have served a city as its Public Works Director in an emergency consulting position under the direction of the State of TN leadership to work this city out of a water shortage situation evaluating and ultimately managing critical issues for water/sewer/facilities (both above and below ground) to bring the city into compliance with State and Federal mandates.

General Computer

While at McIntosh college I taught many introductory courses in computer familiarization. I also taught the first level certification courses in Excel. I am proficient in MS Powerpoint and have used it professionally to give international conference sessions.


A real world student of Geography at an early stage. I had the fortunate opportunity to travel around the world two times visiting Asia, the African continent in South Africa, the Suez area Greece, Italy, Corsica, France, Hawaii, the Aleutians, Guam, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand and the South Pole all with the US Navy over a period of 8 years.

Subsequently I visited 9 countries on the European continent that included Poland, Holland, Finland, Estonia, Russia, Germany, Denmark,Sweden, and Norway.

I have had the fortune to travel across the US Mainland twice by hitch-hiking on the Southern and Middle routes. and once by driving. I have lived in many states, Mass, Florida, Virginia, Hawaii New Hampshire and Tenn.

Government & Politics

I have served my communities and states where I lived in many political positions over many years. My first political position was as a conservation chairman for Merrimac, Ma. The second was as a budget committee member in NH, my third was as a selectman/chairman of the board of a town in NH, I served NH as a state legislator for two years, served as a county commissioner in the nations fastest growing county in the US (in NH) and then ran for state senate twice. In Tn I served as a public works director for a year as a consultant. There were many other minor roles but the above should give the reader a flavor of political awareness.


As the senior professor at McIntosh College I taught the full battery of Marketing subject matter to many hundreds of students in subjects ranging from basic marketing to marketing research and conducted live on-the-street labs to put analysis and research to the test.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using MS Outlook and Outlook Express for many years and use it as the prime storage for critical files and documents sent to business clients.

My familiarity encompasses using the tool for receiving and sending emails, for archiving, and categorization of specific subject matter correspondence for clients, legal council, business correspondence and registrations.

Microsoft Windows

Having been "on-the-scene" when the orange screen was introduced, I have "evolved" through the iterations of MS Windows and became proficient in all program changes through to 2007.

I have used these versions, wrestled with the issues presented by each and have retained my sanity. I taught Windows XP as an instructor.

Microsoft Word

At the collegiate level I taught a course in MS Word in a 12 week course. I use MS Word almost on a daily basis currently in Word 7

Public Speaking

As a state legislator I had to not only present myself in a professional manner but had to speak logically, concisely, and needed all the skills of a public speaker to make my election points. I was a member of Toastmasters International for a number of years and learned a number of excellent techniques through positive reinforcement of the speaking principles

Study Skills

As a professor it was mandatory to not only learn and practice strong study skills but to be able to pass them on to students was critical so the students could pass the subject they were studying for. I also did this as an outreach professor for high schools when employed at McIntosh and at the NH Tech College schools.
