Bio

Why me? And why so much?
I deliver my own copyrighted aids (often in a storyboard format) & I prefer to demonstrate concepts with simulations whenever possible. I have the certifications, the experience in education & the real world, & the desire to teach!

I taught math, science, computer science, and pre-engineering in public schools for 10 years, full-time. I have 12 Texas teacher certifications. I have four college degrees, three in engineering. Before teaching, I spent over thirty years...

Why me? And why so much?
I deliver my own copyrighted aids (often in a storyboard format) & I prefer to demonstrate concepts with simulations whenever possible. I have the certifications, the experience in education & the real world, & the desire to teach!

I taught math, science, computer science, and pre-engineering in public schools for 10 years, full-time. I have 12 Texas teacher certifications. I have four college degrees, three in engineering. Before teaching, I spent over thirty years with most of my career in software engineering. I think I can leverage my education & experience to help you!

The district called official tutoring 'homebound' teaching. I performed this service for 2-3 years. They liked to send me because I have all of the core certs, so they only needed to send one! I tutored sixth-graders as part of the ACE program, and as a professional teacher, I tutored before and after school.

I enjoyed the variety I taught and the variety of students. I often learned the most on how to practice good teaching from my special education students. I tutored students from the sixth graders up through seniors. I retired from full-time teaching because I enjoy the one-on-one experience that is part of tutoring. For tutoring to work, a student must meet me halfway on the effort continuum. I don't "fix" anybody - I help them explore their possibilities. I have experience with coaching students through state-examination test prep courses. Geometry has baffled students for 2500 years, but I think insights from my engineering background help.

The public school experience taught me that much of the professional development passed on to teachers was lore. I learned from my experience. The challenges with special education students allowed me to reach all students better.
