I have a Masters and Doctorate in Educational Leadership with a Bachelor in Business Administration.
I was a full time teacher in Florida, Georgia and at an International IB School in China. I currently substitute teach in Iowa.
My techniques of instruction are to find out where the student is academically and what areas they need help. I then design a lesson plan appropriate to their goals.
I have taught for over 20 years, most of that time teaching Social Studies.
I have taught thousands of students both in U.S. and China.
I was part of a Social Studies team that helped 95% of students achieve the highest level on Georgia State Test.
I prefer to tutor via webcam. I have high speed WiFi at my house.
