For 9 years I was employed as an adjunct instructor and writing tutor at Atlantic Cape Community College (ACCC). I primarily taught World Religions and Introduction to Philosophy. In addition I taught Western Civilization, US History, and Government classes. Many times I have seen the students writing improve as they have worked with me through the term. Even non English speakers have made great strides with my tutoring. Recently I have tutored graduate students taking online courses.

Beginning the Fall 2013 I have been employed as an adjunct instructor in philosophy at Ocean County College.

In addition to my tutoring at ACCC, I have also tutored Korean students for the SAT at Pilgrim Academy. I tutored Math and Language Arts students at the Davies Middle School, Hamilton Township, NJ. With other tutoring services I have tutored a high school student for all his academics especially with his work in psychology. In addition, this summer I tutored students in SAT and English preparation. Currently, I am tutoring an MBA student online as well as a GRE student.

One of my students was the valedictorian at Oakcrest High School and is now a student at Harvard.

Prior to my college teaching, I taught junior high social studies for 29 years in Atlantic City, NJ. While in Atlantic City, I chaired the Curriculum Content Committees that rewrote the curriculum to prepare the students to pass the state tests.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

You have to reintroduce the area, trying different methods to aid the student in learning the skill.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would introduce myself and ask the student what her goals were.
