"I am a 48 year old energetic and fun loving grandfather of 5 who loves to teach. My wife and I recently moved to Florida from Arizona. I have an extensive career history as a past paramedic, firefighter, 911 supervisor, airline captain and 5th grade elementary school teacher. I was an instructor in each of these careers and still hold a valid flight instructor certificate and Arizona Elementary Education teaching certificate. I enjoy teaching math and look forward to tutoring and helping out in this area!
Math has always been a strong suit for me. It has been a favorite subject of mine since childhood and a vital skill in every career I have held! I have taught it extensively in the elementary setting, working to find creative ways of bringing understanding of the concepts to students of varying capabilities of understanding from a wide range of backgrounds.
Like math, science has been a favorite subject of mine since youth. Knowledge and understanding of science has been integral to success in paramedicine, firefighting and aviation careers for me. It is an exciting and fun subject to teach and I really enjoy passing that enjoyment on to my students!
Homeschooling is a challenging undertaking. I homeschooled my two youngest children for their 8th grade school years and found it to be a rewarding experience. My experience with this as well as 2 years teaching 5th grade in the classroom gives me an edge in being able to help with bringing the needed structure to the homeschool environment.
I have an extensive career history but the underlying theme throughout is teaching: I have always been a teacher in every career I have held. I have always enjoyed teaching and, though I am no longer in the classroom full time, am happy to help you with your learning needs. I am happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to discussing your needs for tutoring further! Please let me know how I can help." less...
