1 John 2 is written by John to those who are being led astray by misinformation, even though they are mature in their beliefs. John identifies what the these Believers need to be cautious of and in doing so reveals the only devices that are available to defeat the Christians.  Many people overlook this little passage and continually are fooled by the tricks of the enemy.  Read them for yourself and contemplate what they mean in your life and how you can overcome by removing them from your situation.  The application of this spiritual insight will catapult you to a new level of understanding while providing the confidence you need to overcome your circumstances.  Read it for yourself in 1 John 2:15 - 17 and reflect on its impact on how, what and why you live your life as you do. Let’s discuss it.  

Growing up as a bright student who wanted to be cool meant that I stayed away from math subject like everyone else - then I got to Algebra.  The ability to find the unknown through remembering formulas simply intrigued me and I learned as much as possible.  As I went into High School and college, I found that the use of Algebraic equations could be a life saver if you simply needed to find the value of something upon demand.  I used them for sales to get the best prices, for Excel because the macros are not as easily remembered, for budgeting money as an adult to assure I stay on target and any other time I need to find the answer quick.  Once you learn the rules of Algebra, the rest is a piece of cake.  I will make you a believer.

1. Get to know your students likes and dislikes.  There favorite subject, or if they are in sports or extra activities.  Then ask      them about it before starting the lesson each time.  Show that you are interested in them.   2. Have a fun activity planned.  Such as Math tic tac toe, matching game with math terms, math multiplication with playing        cards.   3. Using florescent note cards for math vocabulary.  I also have them use colored pens or markers to make the flash            cards.  Then have them create a crossword puzzle if they have access to a computer and the internet.   4.  Then after introducing how to look up the vocab words, next point out how to find them in there textbook.  Next check       to see if there is a glossary in there text book or at the end of the chapter, otherwise have them look... read more

I absolutely love tutoring. From a few years of experience I have gained some knowledge on how to make tutoring a fun experience and not make students feel like they are attending a second school.  One of my main tips is to let the students set the atmosphere. They need to be comfortable in whatever environment to facilitate learning. If music helps them concentrate, or some kind of background noise, then encourage it. If they want to sit on the couch instead of the chairs, so be it. The student should be able to chose the medium in which they study so as not to feel constrained like a classroom setting.  Another tip that I like to give is to level. If you know that your student isn't going to understand something the way an Ivy League student would, don't use ridiculous words and techniques. The whole point of tutoring is to help someone understand a concept, not to show off how smart you are. Subjects should never just be limited to the material either. Ask... read more

All my grade 8 & 9 students (10 students) passed the Algebra Core Regents exam. Only one student had to retake it in August and she passed with an 83%. In June she scored 53%. My two Trigonometry students passed the Regents, but only 2 out 4 students passed the Geometry Regents exams.

I have been an artist all my life. Coloring, drawing and learning to paint since I could hold a crayon. My appreciation for the arts is unlimited and unbounded. Animation really fueled my imagination when I was young, today I incorporate both traditional and digital methods to create my work. I keep my work, fun, up-beat and positive.   Along with art I love ASTRONOMY - they are coupled together by history and time. I teach these subjects in several classes that I run myself in my community. I am here to help YOU. I enjoy sharing knowledge and learning together. If there is anything I can do for you please feel free to contact me !   Keep Looking Up! My Online Gallery of Art and Photography

I have been reading the blogs on who makes a good tutor. Most of the answers I have read have great suggestions. My way to find a excellent tutor is as follows. You should read their educational background and how much experience the person has had in a classroom.  Especially recently, since this tutor knows the new methods of teaching.  He or she has had experience teaching students with multiple educational needs. The tutor has taught various ages of students, and uses multiple intelligence ways to teach. Use of hands on activities, verbal, and visual aids for tutoring.  Being book smart today doesn't always make a good tutor.  Having a college education or Master's degree in Education does qualify you as a excellent tutor, since you have to pass all subject levels to receive one. These subjects include special needs, psychology, child development and sociology. Having a degree in a subject is a plus but doesn't mean you can tutor. A tutor must be able to keep... read more

Want to be published? I am the editor of three on-line science journals, published through the CK-12 Foundation ( These journals, Understanding Biodiversity, Profiles in Science (early 2016), and Current Trends in the Biomedical Sciences (late 2016) are opportunities for students to become published.  I am available to assist students nationwide through the research, writing and publishing process - just sent me an email to find out more.    

I read a blog that less expensive tutors are not as good as high priced tutors.  Then the blogger stated that for a tutor to be acceptable they must have a Master's or higher degree in the subject they intend to tutor.  They compared a 'good' tutor as one that is high priced and who would shop in Saks 5th Ave to a 'novice' tutor who is a low cost person who shops at Wal-Mart.  I hope that I am not the only person who was offended by this blog.  What makes a person better if they prefer to pay a dollar for a pencil at an exclusive store that costs 5 cents at a store anyone can afford to shop at.  Such people seem to look down on anyone who has to carefully budget how they spend their earnings.   First, the price a person charges for tutoring has nothing to do with how good they may be as a tutor.  It is dependent on where they live and why they are tutoring in the first place.  A person living in a rural setting in the South simply does not have... read more

• Explain why European exploration led to cultural clashes and interchange between the Europeans and the native peoples of the areas they conquered. • Relate the events stemming from the Renaissance to the Age of Discovery. • Analyze the impact that took place in Africa and the Americas due to slave trade. • Explain the reasons why Europe was invested in South and Southeast Asia, and the impact of its involvement. • Recognize the ways in which the Columbian Exchange advanced Europe's position in the global community, while decreasing the power of other nations.

There has been a link circulating recently through social media (Link below). The link describes a story in which a teacher told a student that an answer was wrong on a common core math quiz. A very loud debate has erupted in regards to Common Core Math and it's role in the education system. Some stand to defend it, and others are very much against it due to its "confusing nature." I believe that Common Core is simply not being used properly within the education system, which is why such stories described in the article exist.   I am very passionate about the debate on Common Core Math and its role in the education system. Though it is the center of much confusion and debate, Common Core is not all together bad. The issue with Common Core Math is not that the methods themselves are bad; instead, the issue resides in the fact that teachers and school boards have not been taught the actual purpose of Common Core and have not been properly trained on how to use... read more

    There are four different libraries at the bottom of the Windows bar on the top of the program that are usually overlooked when first learning the program. Brush, Graphic Styles, Swatch and Symbols. These libraries, especially the symbols, are like built-in Clip Art. Using the spray can tool you can click once for a single symbol or click and drag for multiple symbols. Once you select a single symbol you can go to Object>Expand to make the symbol editable. I have used this to color the petals of the flower symbol different colors. The brush library includes several icons that can be used with the brush. The swatches library includes the gradient library which has a ton of gradients to choose from. The graphic styles library has textures that can be used as background as well as to fill type. The type effects tool is a one click tool that has some amazing effects that normally would take hours to achieve manually. The best part about all of these libraries is that... read more

Google Drive makes it easy for me to access my files no matter what device I am on – my home computer, work computer, iPad, smartphone, or a computer anywhere I visit. I keep my favorite recipes, photos, instructional guides, and a variety of professional and personal documents in the cloud where I can access them from any location with Internet connectivity.     In addition to enjoying the convenience of accessing my files from anywhere, I value the ability to easily share select files with others. Google Drive lets me decide whether I want to share a file with others by allowing them to simply view the file, or if I choose I may give specific people the ability to edit a file, so we can easily collaborate on a project or while making plans.     If you are not familiar with Google Drive I can get you very comfortable with the most useful features in just one tutoring session. Other Google apps that I love include Google Forms, for gathering information,... read more
