Profile

Quick summation: 40 years of teaching … grade school math, science, English, reading Middle School science, math, English, science, High school basic math, English, GED preparation, test taking skills
Since 1963 through this term, the first one in 2017, I have taught/ tutored at least 9500 students, ages from primary grades through advanced courses in high school and the USNavy
In Turkey, one definition of who is a teacher, is “One who leads you from the darkness to the light – the darkness of ignorance, light of understanding.” This is a poetic expression of the inner wish of every true teacher – it is my wish. There is nothing like the expression on a student’s face when s/he has achieved comprehension and mastery of a concept s/he was working endlessly with.
The mode and means of teaching/ tutoring for me must be in response to the situation. Bona fide considerations include: age/ gender of students, how many at one time, ability of each in the subjects to be taught, physical location, books & other materials available, a myriad more.
Adaptability and creativity may be the answers, but as often the rudimentary foundations need to be included.
