Bio

My first language experience was middle school in West Africa, but I was first an ancient Greek teaching assistant in college for 2 years. My next opportunity was in Frankfurt, Germany for US Military children who were in a self-paced and certified program, but needed a supervisor for a variety of reasons. I may not be the best for basic math, but definitely for Excel set up, and anything underlying. I now work in creative writing and enjoy editing, and helping a piece become more...

My first language experience was middle school in West Africa, but I was first an ancient Greek teaching assistant in college for 2 years. My next opportunity was in Frankfurt, Germany for US Military children who were in a self-paced and certified program, but needed a supervisor for a variety of reasons. I may not be the best for basic math, but definitely for Excel set up, and anything underlying. I now work in creative writing and enjoy editing, and helping a piece become more efficient, focused and coherent. One college course I designed is the creation of synopses of English classics, working from the movie productions back to single pages. This practice of condensing in a limited space is an extremely important skill for human communication.

I design Excel sheets to answer complex questions. I have used this for estimating construction. In geometry, I have practical experience working out designs for construction that demystify what geometry's principles are about.

I have tracking and forensic instincts which tend to keep a science question in the uncluttered terms needed to understand it. I have worked in chemical and element industries and know some of the elementary sciences from that angle.

I had a unique experience in Europe for half a year, living in Germany but using a French-German mini-dictionary to reinforce both. It helped renew my French more than expand my German! I have continued in ancient Greek for many years. I find that it does not matter much what language is taken up, but very important for a student to operate in at least one other. I read widely, and find very important clarity in classic authors like C.S. Lewis and Orwell.

My master's degree was truly a preparation for research, and it has paid off in such projects as novels written and now a documentary of a very significant historical moment and encounter. Since education has been very disrupted this past year, I would like to help students up to adult ages to restore some lost continuity. Please contact

Music

Guitar

Guitar

I have 10 years in worship team performance, acquiring sheet music 3 days before performance in most cases. Upbeat pieces were usually rhythm, while downbeat were a picked pattern. I have created several songs in both uses, but they are not 'composed' on paper. A lot of material by David Mallett and Gordon Lightfoot was learned at first before worship (CCM). The picking patterns led to fill-in as bass player. Rhythm pieces led to minor percussion contributions--shakers, tambourine, djembe, bodhran. It was also easy to use an autoharp in rhythm position (upside down).
