EducationI am a graduate of Duke University, Magna Cum Laude, B.A., Psychology, with emphasis on music, literature, creative writing, and mathematics, 1976. Law Degree obtained 1983 from the University of Cincinnati.
ExperienceI have tutored for decades, and I taught dance for 15 years. I was a high scorer on the SAT. I enjoy tutoring very much, all levels, all aptitudes. I take a great deal of pride and satisfaction in helping students learn their material and achieve their goals.
HobbiesI am creative by nature. I love to write, especially fiction. I have been a competitive ballroom and latin dancer, and I owned and operated a ballroom and latin dance school for 22 years. I taught thousands of students, mostly adults but many teenagers, how to dance. I created my own ballgowns, and I have great visual skills. I think my chief skill is being able to take a problem, break it down into its component parts, and solve the problem bit by bit. I love building confidence along with skills.
I am currently tutoring a gifted high schooler who is being homeschooled. We are developing her writing skills. I absolutely love teaching. I want to see people (any age -- from young child to grown adult) learn and grow.
To my mind, teaching someone just because the person needs to learn it is sometimes necessary but never much fun. I vastly prefer creating an interest or at least a healthy respect for the material, and learning how to solve the problems associated with that material, so the student develops problem-solving skills. This leads to great confidence for the student, and at the end of the day, seeing a smile that comes from mastering something new is the greatest result I can achieve.
