About Morgan

Hello,

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1983. I've also been lucky enough to travel across southern Africa, Central America, North America and the United Kingdom. Two interests of mine are game theory and probabilities, which dovetail with my hobbies of chess, poker and board games.

I believe the most effective way to teach is to involve the student with the curriculum by being interactive rather than merely presenting the material to be surveyed and hopefully comprehended. I think an interactive approach gives a better chance of successfully mastering the curriculum.

My mother was a high school English teacher for over twenty five years; I had the chance to observe and learn from her techniques.

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.

ASVAB

I have tutored students for the ASVAB test and am familiar with the test material. I have also passed the Wyz Ant ASVAB test. For the student, I explain how to use deductive reasoning where applicable to answer test questions.

Chess

I am a former member of the United States Chess Federation with approximately a thousand rated games under my belt. The highest level I attained was "Class A". I have defeated USCF masters in unrated speed chess games and my highest rated win came against a 2170 (expert) player.

ESL/ESOL

I minored in English at the University of Texas at Austin. I took Spanish in high school and college and traveled in Mexico and Central America, so I can communicate at a rudimentary level with Spanish speakers. I also have at my disposal source material for instruction with interested students.

Political Science

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin with a major in government. I also majored in political science at Baylor University before I transferred to UT-Austin. I concentrated in foreign relations as well as legislative affairs. I also took a graduate government course on non-fuel minerals.
