"I am a nationally certified tutor and I currently teach and tutor at a local college in Columbus, Ohio.

I have been tutoring students in math (all levels), English (all levels), history (all levels), all social sciences (political science, sociology, philosophy, and psychology), English as a Second Language, and especially ACT (math, science reasoning, reading, English, and writing), and SAT (math and English) for more than 20 years by reducing learning anxiety and "simply getting the point and application(s) across" in a relaxing, yet effective manner.

I am also a semi-retired senior professor. Before deciding to retire from full-time teaching at a major university, I taught the following subjects for 23 years: Economics (all levels); Finance (all levels); Math (all levels); Business Operations; Business Strategy; Business Math; Critical Thinking/Problem Solving; Political Science; Ethics; Introduction to Business; and Leadership/Motivation.

I currently divide my tutoring time between the following grade levels: Grades 1 through 6 = 20%; Middle School/Junior High School = 20%; High School = 30%; and ACT/SAT = 30%.

As a parent, professor, experienced tutor, and life-long learner, I understand (and practice) the essential differences between teaching and tutoring. Although they share some similarities, they are different in terms of learning strategy, knowledge retention, and information application.

My purpose for tutoring is not to supplement my income. I attained my wealth many years ago. I've never cared about social status.

Now, for me, it's primarily a matter of having students "get it!"

"Getting it" simply means the following to different students/parents: passing an exam; passing a lab; "catching up" when classes have been missed; "catching up" when a student has fallen behind; actually understanding the application(s) of specific material; improving ACT/SAT scores to enter a specific college/university or gain a specific academic scholarship/grant.

And so it goes...

Thank you!" less...
