Tutor Most Subjects But Best Experience Is In Math.
I started tutoring children in my neighborhood in 1984, when my job was Space Flight Ground Support electronics technician/operator at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. The fact that I worked via a rotating shift made the tutoring possible. That was when my professional focus began shifting away from working in an office and toward teaching, which I have ever since much preferred over any office work. In 1985 I started tutoring grade school and adult students for an agency. Since then I have taught in classrooms fulltime, mentored students, served as a Home and Hospital teacher for students temporarily shut in for medical and behavior reasons, and I have continued to tutor weekends and evenings, both for myself and for tutoring agencies.
I have over the past 33 years developed custom teaching methods based on WHAT WORKS, and my methods happen to be totally compliant with – indeed FOCUS on -- Common Core and STEM philosophies and methodologies. I created two very successful programs; THE MATH PACKAGE in 2002, which enables maximum synergy among students who prefer to work together anyway, and which virtually guarantees high grades in math; and its follow-on program THE MATH CHALLENGE in 2013, which takes Math achievement and general student analytical ability to the next level. I have deployed CHALLENGE with profound success in 160 classrooms as a substitute teacher; that is approximately 4,000 students. It has NEVER failed to within minutes propel students to very high levels of self confidence, self esteem, and a die-hard thirst for high octane academic performance achievement. More recently, I have been training myself in the use of recent high tech classroom instruction equipment including the Promethean and Smart Boards. I profoundly endorse these important tools because of how effectively they inspire students and enable them to RAPIDLY discover their inherent analytical capabilities.
I consequently wrote a stage production “I CHALLENGE YOU!” with the intent of performing it in school auditoriums. It features the amazingly successful classroom MATH CHALLENGE, adapted for the stage, and applies the same concept of rapidly inspiring intense student interest in other school subjects as well. Today’s elementary, middle, and high school students in this country are the most capable in the world, IF they are taught the right way, which I have accomplished. I have fine tuned my methods over the years, such that now I can quickly evaluate then very effectively, successfully teach any student regardless of age or situation. My techniques stimulate student capability and achievement in all areas of endeavor. When I tutor individual students or student groups, I guarantee positive results. No success, no charge.
