EducationI have a Bachelor of Arts in English, with a concentration in Peace and Conflict Studies, from the University of Notre Dame. I also have a Master of Arts in Latin American Studies, focused on Cultural Studies, from Tulane University. I have various certifications to teach Advanced Placement courses, and a New York State teaching license. My GPA across all schooling is 3.8 on a 4.0 point scale.
ExperienceI am a retired English, History, Economics, Latin American Studies, Advanced Placement, and SAT/ACT test prep instructor. My own SAT and GRE scores as a student were at the 90th percentile, while I routinely assist students in increasing their standardized test scores by 10-30% (results vary, of course, but I am very proud of my test prep tutoring skills). I have over ten years' experience as both a classroom teacher and tutor. I want to return to tutoring because I am now a stay at home father and like the flexibility that tutoring offers as opposed to daily classroom teaching.
HobbiesFirst and foremost I am a father of two darling little girls, Meryl and Hana (if you and I work together, there's a very high chance they will charm you as they charm me!). I write novels in my spare time--but don't worry, I'm not famous yet!
When I am not debating the proper shade of pink for my daughters' dresses, or finding the best word choice for a perfectly written passage, I travel throughout Europe, usually with my girls, and I try, and fail, to become a better cook.
