ExperienceTil recently, I tutored a young Hispanic male in reading and English, as well as in the Adult GED program at the Decatur Dream Center. In the past, I have tutored a high school age male ESL student in history, social studies, English and so forth, throughout most of grad school. Also a number of other short term assignments.
I received a 28 on the ACT oh so long ago, before I was serious about an education, and on the first and only try. I did not take the SAT. I took the GMAT in 2003 and received a 85%/38 verbal score and a 35%/32 quantitative score (which is why I am not a math tutor) for a total of 580/64%.
I received a 99 (I believe the highest score you can receive, at least according to the desk sergeant) on the ASVAB when I took it at the Nashville MEPS station in 2005 or 2006.
I am an excellent tutor/teacher. I care about the success of my students, and their ongoing success throughout life. I like to think that I can assist in that success, and remember that the right tutor can change a life (as in with the relationship between Alexander the Great and Aristotle, for example).
I have taken a great many classes for college credit, and a great many more not for credit. For example, I am currently enrolled in a 'Model Thinking' course online offered through the U of Michigan, as well as an ongoing comparative religion course.
I have worked professionally in a variety of fields, most specifically civilian Army contractor, mental health professional and consumer finance.
HobbiesI am well travelled. I have lived in both Australia and Bolivia, and visited many other countries.
I enjoy extreme sports such as skydiving, rapelling and (one day) BASE jumping. But also more docile pursuits like hiking, swimming and so forth. I jog and/or work out almost every day.
I read a lot (newspapers, magazines, online sites, novels), play video games (I rule at Halo), guitar and sing. Favorite food is sushi. I volunteer a good bit throughout the community (primarily animals and mental health) and am active in a small local church that I have attended off and on throughout my entire life.
