Broadly-schooled, deeply-experienced, academically-trained, auto-didact with high school/community college teaching experience tutors in literacy, writing, industrial engineering and other ad hoc matt

Methodology

I have a BA degree in English (Creative Writing) earned by attending night school at a major university (Wane State, Detroit) while working full-time as a bench chemist doing metallurgical ( quality control) analysis at a gray iron and steel foundry. I returned to pursue a masters degree while earning a secondary school teaching certificate, during which time i did basic research in psycho-physiology at a Psychiatric treatment and teaching clinic. I am mostly self-taught by dint of self-generated, on-the-job training in a wide range of different fields and a steady rate of reading practice throughout the course of my adult life.

Background

I started teaching at the high school level in 1962, continued at it (teaching English, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, History, & Mathematics) at the high school and adult education level throughout the 60s. In the 70s I left this to work as an environmental researcher, project engineer, and supervisor of industrial engineering at a fortune 500 company, eventually leaving this to do management consulting and conducting week-long workshop/seminars in industrial time study and methods procedures. In the 80s I returned to teaching high school subjects and teaching English as a second language at the San Francisco Community College. Throughout this i have made a a practice of deliberately learning living and earning learning in a direct, first-hand way through employment of a variety of temporary and moon-lighted jobs in distinctively different fields. I have recently been doing tutoring in math and English to high school students.

Leo's resume

It's hard to be concise here. I've worked at 38 different jobs across a wide range of skills. Moreover I've been working for years to distinguish myself from my self. I incorporate these distinctions into what I do.
