Retired teacher offers tutoring in Business, Psychology, Statistics and Political Science in Tucson.

Methodology

Teaching and learning should be their own reward. I make topics I teach fun, accessible and relevant to the real world. The best measure of new knowledge is applying it outside the classroom, but I also include test prep upon request.

Background

I earned an MBA and have hundreds of postgrad credit hours in Organizational Psychology, Statistics, and Economics. I am a life long learner, have a wide range of academic interests, a lengthy educational background and enjoy sharing what I have learned with others.
