Description

Class Experience

I am a semi-retired Criminal Justice and Sociology Professor and High School History teacher and former Speech and Debate Coach.  I am also a practicing attorney in New York State.  I taught Advanced Placement US Government, Advanced Placement Comparative Government and traditional High School History and other classes for over ten years.  I know it is important to introduce a fact based, non biased lesson to students that will foster discussions with their family.  For twenty years I have had the opportunity to work with students from Pre-K through Graduate School in both a traditional learning atmosphere and those classes that deviate from neurotypical teaching.  I held my teaching certification in World History/US History/Government and Economics for Middle and High School.   I have a law degree, a post-doctorate in international law and I am ABD on a PhD in Sociology/Criminology.  My teaching philosophy is that all students are individuals and unique learners that must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas and where mistakes are considered education victories.
     While incorporating the eight learning styles into each class, I believe that there are five essential elements that are conducive to learning. (1) The teacher's role is to act as a guide. (2) Students must have access to hands-on activities. (3) Students should be able to have choices and let their curiosity direct their learning. (4) Students need the opportunity to practice skills in a safe environment. (5) Technology must be incorporated into the school day.
varies
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents please contact me directly to step up a time.  The times above our just for listing purposes.  Before I meet with your student, please give me a detailed explanation of your students needs and goals for our tutoring section.  If this is an ongoing tutoring session, I am available for phone conferences as well.
