About Lucy

I love to teach teenagers and adults primarily in group discussion or in one-on-one sessions to develop a trusted relationship between the teacher and the student. I prefer to help students draw learning from within themselves so they discover the learning potential they have within.

I hold a permanent teaching certificate from the State of Texas. I am certified to teach secondary social studies with an emphasis on History, Geography and Government. I taught in the public schools in Corpus Christi, Texas in American History and Texas History.

More recently, I have mentored a theology program developed by the University of the South School of Theology called Education for Ministry. This is a four-year course of study for lay persons in bible study, church history and theology. I graduated in 1996 and started mentoring in 1995 before my graduation. I continue as a mentor to a group of 11 students. The learning format in this class is small group discussion.

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.

Bible Studies

For over 18 years, I have been a mentor in a program called Education for Ministry. This program was developed by the University of the South School of Theology. The class consists of six to twelve students, and the role of the mentor is to facilitate discussion of the lessons each week and to teach the process of Theological Reflection as developed by the School of Theology. The course involves teaching about the Old Testament, New Testament, Church History and Theology. All mentors are required to keep their accreditation active through training every 18 months as provided by the School of Theology.

Social Studies

I earned a permanent teaching certificate for the State of Texas. My certification is a Social Studies composite certificate that required that I successfully complete college course work in a major, a minor and a third subject along with a sampling across the offerings in Social Studies. My main coursework was in History, Geography and Government. My B.A. was in History with a minor in Geography. I taught junior high for three years in American and Texas history in the public schools in Corpus Christi, Texas.
