About Me

Experience Summary

I have taught elementary, middle school , high school, college, and students in adult education courses. I have taught in rural, suburban, and urban settings for both private and public institutions. I have tutored my own children (e.g. Latin, Art, Guitar) and middle and high school students in their homes and/or at my home. I have taught hundreds of college courses and thousands of students. I have a passion for teaching, knowledge, learning from others, and life-learning.

Teaching Style

My teaching style is real. It's genuine. College students walk away from my classes saying, "Thanks for keeping it real." I have no pretenses as I view the learning process as a crucial humans exchange between two or more people. I'm very egalitarian in my approach, being open to learn from my students. Finally, I have caring pedagogy, in that I care about my students and usually am in touch with them well after the teaching experience.

My Hobbies

I play with my children, ranging in ages from 1 year to 13 years old; I play guitar and write my own original compositions; I love to draw and paint; I read and write poetry; I read a lot throughout the day and just about anything; I love to spend time with my wife (who I also read with); I love to hike, play soccer, and absolutely love to be outside.
