I believe that every person can be successful at doing math, taking standardized tests and understanding the concepts used in business. For some, it just may take a little longer, they may have to more work, put in more effort and schedule more time. I have degrees in Chemical Engineering, Adult and Business Administration. I have taught in situations as diverse as parole houses, job training programs, 'career' education establishments and at the university. I have tutored for Sylvan, Tutor Doctor, WyzAnt, Virtual Vocations, Club Z and with my own agency (Growing Desire Educational Association). I primarily tutor math (Developmental to Finite Math, Geometry and Statistics) and business subjects (Accounting, Bookkeeping, Management, Marketing, Human Resources) to name a few. My philosophy goes this way. When parents tell me that "Oh, my son has ____" I quietly say, "Hum!" Realistically, the student still has to do the same work that others are expected to complete, to pass the same tests, and to do the same homework as anyone else. I will adjust my tutoring methods a little, but I will continue to emphasize to the student and the parent that they hired me to assist the student to 'pass' the class. Now I ask the student: 'What problem can't you work?' OK, lets see how we can get you to understand how to do it. And it continues from there, problem by problem.

I am interested in assisting every student who tutors with me to become the best that they can be at the subject that they are working on. I also cook (casseroles), garden (fall vegetables), watch the Hallmark Channel Murders and Mysteries, and the Lightning(Go Bolts!)
