Retiree with degrees in natural sciences, public health, English/EFL, French, theology, and test prep to tutor middle school, high school, or community college students in Sacramento and general vicin

Methodology

Over my lifetime, I have taught primarily in college or secondary settings, in English or French, SAT/exam prep, English in the health sciences, natural sciences, academic writing, medical terminology, and theology. Can tutor one on one, or in small groups. Prefer working with students' existing resources, supplementing as necessary. I use the Socratic method of questioning my students, to allow them to come to a understanding on their own, towards a true mastery of the subject matter.

Background

I have taught in various capacities, college or secondary, in colleges or schools in the Middle East (Kuwait University, AMIDEAST), Africa, Haiti (American University of the Caribbean), Ohio (Cuyahoga Community College), Arizona, and Louisiana. Usual class size: 10 to 20 students. Students have gone on to higher studies, or have pursued employment in the health sciences.
