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

Wyzant wants to know!: How do I make my tutoring lessons fun?   I approach some aspects of tutoring the way I approach the classroom--the fortunate part of tutoring is that both the student and the teacher may have more freedom.     That brings me to my first tip!   1) The world is a classroom!  As much as I'd love to bring a classroom full of students out and about, I am restricted by funding, permission slips, and other bureaucratic hurdles.  In tutoring, given permission of the parent/guardian, we can go out and about.  How better to learn about social norms (sociology) than going out in public and observing a few?  Or breaking a few?  (Safely, I promise!)   2) Know the student.  I remember being all of 7 years old and I asked my teacher why I had to know math.  The teacher, rather than answer my question, scolded me and called my parents.  In reality, if the teacher... read more

Hello all!   I am super excited to sign-up for The New MCAT.  I can't tutor on the new exam without taking it, so I will be on a journey to make sure that the exam is everything the committee says it is.   I will be posting different material, study questions and strategies that I find useful for preparing for this exam.  I hope this will help you to, and I will give feedback on the different subject problem areas that I see in my current students.   I have exactly 4 months until the exam.  This is a good amount of time - planning is crucial for the exam - because there are 4 sections on the new MCAT.  Here they are:   Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills   There is a small video to describe The New MCAT, and... read more

This is a totally random suggestion for other tutors- I'm sure the basics have been said about providing professional service- but anyway- if, when you meet a client for the first time, you are offered coffee or water, accept it the first time whether you want it or not!  If you say no thanks the first time, they don't usually offer it again.  But if you graciously accept you will have an offer of beverage every time.    

There is a term that I use when helping my own children when they get frustrated working on homework. I call it the "background brain". I work as a software developer, so this is a computer analogy. With computers, there are processes that are running on the screen that the user is interacting with. There are often other processes running in the background that the user is unaware of.     Our brains work similarly. While we are consciously working on a problem, or reading a book, or doing anything else, our brain is also working in the background, and we are unaware of all that it is doing. From regulating our bodies, to making sense of the things that we are experiencing, it is working.     Sometimes when we are frustrated with a problem that we are working on, we need to step away and do something else. This gives our "background brains" time to process things and connect the dots subconsciously. Sometimes that is all we need... read more

In my experience with elementary level students, I am constantly amazed by these kids imagination. However when it comes to math i find myself frustrated that their minds wander so much. Sometimes i want to just be like, "Super man and unicorns are not a part of math! pay attention!!!!" Reality is, that just doesn't help. I began trying to revamp my ways of teaching so that super man could join us in our lessons. I found that using examples that incorporate the child's imagination works wonders. They being to laugh and enjoy themselves when I am tutoring them and the best part is....THEY PAY ATTENTION! The fun examples also help them to remember math concepts when they go to take their tests. It is a win win for everyone. A basic example could be "superman already saved 4 people last week but this week he saved 5 more people from a burning building! So how many people has he saved?" We have taken a basic 4+5=9 math problem and made it fun for them. Sometimes... read more

I hear so many teachers complain about the Common Core and I think it's more from a fear of the new and unfamiliar than what it promotes.  Common Core promotes thinking and making connections to the world we live it.  It means that teachers have to learn how to share the big picture, the concepts rather than rote memorization of facts.  In our age of technology students do not need to memorize the 50 states or the dates of battles, they have the internet, but they do need to know how the 50 states came about and how they're governed, they need to know the conditions that brought battles about...they need to know the big concepts and how they still apply to events happening in the world today.  I believe that the complaints about Common Core often are coming from a lack of confidence that teachers have that they can make the leap from the way they have always taught to this new way of thinking.  Common Core requires that we don't just teach, but that we facilitate... read more

Online tutoring is definitely a great thing not only to take, but to teach. It allows you to be flexible with your schedule, you don't have to leave your home, and you save money on gas! However, there can be some downsides to online tutoring.  If you live with family, there can be distractions and background noise You may not be technologically savvy You may find some students would prefer tutoring in a face-to-face setting Even despite these setbacks, WyzAnt's online tutoring platform is an amazing way to interact with students. Here are some solutions to these issues: Make sure you have a designated "tutoring room" or quiet time during tutoring hours. Living with family, especially children, can be difficult. However, letting others know that you need silence, or having a designated room where there is little to no family traffic can help improve the quality of the session. Even if you are not technologically savvy, WyzAnt offers a... read more
