Bio

I am a Virginia Collegiate Professional certified teacher with mathematics, biology, and chemistry endorsements and 17 years' experience teaching in Virginia, Oklahoma and Alabama. Not only do I have a BS degree in mathematics, biology and chemistry; but I spent two years in graduate studies in meteorology. I also know how to train to take tests. In high school, I got a perfect score (36) on the ACT math section and a 740 on the SAT math section. While working with the Conservation Corps in Los Angeles, I discovered that I could teach Corps members studying for their GED courses. This was after spending years as a chemist, biologist, manager, graduate student, and a variety of other positions; in addition to serving my country for 14 years as a weather forecaster in the Air Force Guard and Reserves.

I am patient, and encouraging, focused on the lesson but always with a sense of humor. I have always gotten along well with both children and non-children; and can help you learn and succeed. Due to my years of experience and training, I am able to detect what my students are not getting, even if they can't describe it themselves. Once recognized, I can offer multiple ways to explain each topic in order to find the one that is most easily understood. In many ways, I focus on the art of problem solving; teaching how to break down the complex into smaller solvable sub-problems.
