About the lesson

In Turkey, one definition of who is a teacher, is “One who leads you from the darkness to the light – the darkness of ignorance, light of understanding.” This is a poetic expression of the inner wish of every true teacher – it is my wish. There is nothing like the expression on a student’s face when s/he has achieved comprehension and mastery of a concept s/he was working endlessly with.
The mode and means of teaching/ tutoring for me must be in response to the situation. Bona fide considerations include: age/ gender of students, how many at one time, ability of each in the subjects to be taught, physical location, books & other materials available, a myriad more.
Adaptability and creativity may be the answers, but as often the rudimentary foundations need to be included.

About Melissa

Since 1963 through this term, the first one in 2017, I have taught/ tutored at least 9500 students, ages from primary grades through advanced courses in high school and the USNavy.
There have been memorable incidents:
In Physics class, my gentlemen all learned the applied laws to understand how to beat the games of the carnies. Off they went to the County Fair, and were winning at booth after booth. Several carnies called the sheriff over, who questioned the students. They told him the assignment based on classes. As a last ditch saving, I was following them. One ranking sheriff got rude, so I walked over. I am a short person, and my students were all football or basketball players. They explained who I was, and as I stood there silent, told the men all toys were going to the local hospital.
One of my seventh grade students worked with me on composition and public speaking. She won the Patriots Award that fall.
In the test taking skills class I taught to high school students, all passed the exam for a diploma. In the class for Navy personnel on the same skills, all of them passed the exam high enough to be promoted.
