"Hi!

I started my career teaching algebra in high school, and retired from teaching human development and psychology in college in January, 2013. Although I spent my career in a wide variety of roles, I enjoy tutoring, and counseling the most. Since retiring I've tutored GED students, mentored former prison inmates, and volunteered at hospice.

"Hi!

I started my career teaching algebra in high school, and retired from teaching human development and psychology in college in January, 2013. Although I spent my career in a wide variety of roles, I enjoy tutoring, and counseling the most. Since retiring I've tutored GED students, mentored former prison inmates, and volunteered at hospice.

I hold a B.S. in Ed., M.A., M.B.A., Ed.S., and Ph.D. I have been a teacher, counselor, principal, superintendent, college dean, entrepreneur, president and CEO of an educational technology business, and consultant to teachers, colleges and businesses throughout the world.

I most enjoy helping students achieve their personal and academic goals. I help them learn how to learn and play the academic game. Learning should be fun. Teaching is too. I find that tutoring students with learning problems is particularly rewarding, and I’ve had a lot of experience helping learning disabled students overcome and compensate for their “disability”. I don’t ordinarily tutor children below high school age.

The academic dean at Muskegon Community College where I taught from 2002 to 2012 called me his "utility teacher". When he couldn't find a teacher for a particular class he would ask me to teach it. I didn't especially like teaching technical courses, but I thoroughly enjoyed teaching human development, various psychology and education courses, business, math, writing, and humanities.

For me, helping students earn their GED is very rewarding. Most GED students don’t have a lot of money, but they have more to gain from passing the tests than other students. For these reasons I will negotiate a rate lower than my usual $45 with any GED student in financial hardship. The broad grin they flash when they pass is worth more than money to me.

I'd love to learn about what and how YOU would like to learn and what your goals are. Please send me an eMail. If you have made payment arrangements with WyzAnt, I’ll send you links to evaluations by my former students and my cell phone number so we" less...
