I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Arizona State University, along with post-baccalaureate work in Secondary Education, History and Political Science. I also hold a Masters in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. I am currently gearing toward a Masters in History.

I have over twenty-seven years of experience as a classroom teacher, and have also been a tutor during that time. I have taught middle school mathematics, science, psychology as an elective, and social studies, which is my favorite subject. In social studies, I teach history (U.S. or World), Civics and Geography. I also tutor all the subjects mentioned, and have also taught religious studies.
I enjoy tutoring most age and age groups, especially fourth grade through high school.
I must also mention I work a great deal in developing the writing skills of my students, especially involving the use of the Six Traits of Writing.

In tutoring, I work with a student's most effective style of learning. Anything can be learned if it reaches a student through their best learning modality. I know from experience anyone can and does learn. It is simply a matter of finding your own style, and I can help in that area. Oftentimes, clients choose a tutor because they share a similar hobby. In my spare time, I enjoy living history as a reenactor, especially with the American Civil War. I am also an avid reader, focusing on history and short story fiction. I am also a huge Disneyland fan. Finally, I enjoy most competitive sports, including baseball, basketball, football, and ice hockey (which I have played).
