I have tutored many people in my life. If you would like to come to my home, or meet at the business center (located in my complex), for lessons in just about any area, please contact me.
Relevant Education / Credentials
I have worked as a tutor since I was in junior high school (and that was quite a while ago). Back then, I used to help the teach cover the classroom. Students had questions, and he could not get to all of them quickly enough; so, he enlisted the help of me and another student. Thus began my tutoring experience.
Over the last twenty-five years, I have worked in the fields of early intervention. Five of those seven of those years, I worked in a classroom for children either diagnosed or believed to have autism. For that same agency, I also worked as a job coach, placing and training people with disabilities for positions within the public sector. I worked in our sheltered workshop as a supervisor for those who were not yet equipped to work with the general public, for one reason or another. I also worked as a repite care provider for the agency, as well as for a private agency in the community where I grew up. I also volunteered for the local rescue squad, and became a licensed Emerigency Medical Technician.
When I moved to Oklahoma, I worked in a couple of daycare centers. In addition, for approximately 5 years, I substitiuted for one of the area school districts while I retured to college to pursue baccalaureate degrees in special education and history. I also completed the required hours to earn a minor in hunanities.
One of my college mathematics professors stated that, when he retired, if he could have hand-picked his successor, I would have been his choice. This was very flattering, considering that I did not major in his area. He said that was not the reason behind it. He said that he watched me when we did presentations in class. He realized that I could find unique and interesting ways to teach anyone even the most complicated concepts.
Due to an overgrowth of a bone in the area near the eardrum, my father was deaf for the first five years of my life; so, I learned how to sign as, if not, before, I learned to talk.
