About Ezra

During my 21-year tenure in the United States Air Force, I had many opportunities to mentor many people at all levels and witness their growth into professionals. My primary job was a cop, but I taught many law enforcement and combat concepts and techniques throughout my career. I also taught at a Professional Military Education school and our primary job was to transition entry-level workers to supervisors. This was a six-week course and consisted of writing military reports, public speaking, counseling, and communication. The course also offered military focused skill-sets, but many which can be translated over into the civilian sector. It was my favorite job! I spent many hours developing military members and it was truly the pinnacle of my career.

I have traveled all over the world and had the pleasure to meet many wonderful people from different ethnic backgrounds. Interacting and learning from others has always been an awesome way to meet people. Teaching is definitely one of my passions and I think tutoring would allow me to assist others, while helping a military veteran transition back into the normal world!

I taught writing and public speaking while I was an instructor. I earned a teaching certificate through the Community College of the Air Force, along with two other Associate degrees with the same school. English is my first language and as a professional student, I maintained over a 3.5 GPA at every level. I also prepared over 1000 students to take the Dantes and CLEP Public Speaking examinations or set them up to attend on-line or on-ground Public Speaking classes.

I have been playing for over 15 years and fluctuate between a 8 and 15 handicap, depending how often I play. As I'm not a professional, I am always able to help others with their golf swing or just simply pick up the game. I'm also very personable and patient, so it's easy for me to deal with frustration and talk through concerns.

Many of my friends tell me all the time, "you have this great way with people!" One told me, "you could talk an Eskimo into buying ice!" I just have a passion to talk to others and really figure out their needs. I'm not a salesman, scam artist, or the person that never shuts up. I just truly enjoy meeting people, listening to them, and if they need help or advice, I dig into my military stories and life experiences. You'll laugh and we will have a great time fine tuning your subject requests!

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.

Golf

I have played for over 15 years and have taught others the game of golf. I am not a PGA certified instructor, but I am able to provide advice and teach the basics. I have introduced over 25 people to the game and have helped others tweak their skills. I currently have a 10-handicap through the GHIN service and like to provide hands-on assistance

Public Speaking

I taught public speaking for 4 years under the umbrella of the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF), which is an accredited institution. I taught at an Airmen Leadership School which was a six-week course developing entry-level workers for supervisory responsibilities. Graduates earned 64 semester hours and could schedule class or examination for Public Speaking credit. I was also certified with over 2000 teaching hours and earned an Occupational Instructor credential, as well as a Instructor of Technology and Military Science Degree, an equivalent degree through CCAF as an Associates in Applied Science.
