Independent one-on-one contract teacher/tutor of multiple subjects from Wilmington, DE with PhD who specializes in test prep (SAT, ACT, GED, Praxis, etc) and can also work effectively online.

Methodology

I am a youthful retired male teacher with a BA, two MAs, and a PhD from fantastic schools. I teach exclusively one-on-one or online with an enthusiastic spirit because I believe that education can be fun, but still structured and relevant. "Make education great again!" is my philosophy. I also teach mathematics at many levels.

Background

I started out as a young teacher from 1970-1986 and then embarked on a second career as a biomedical writer and editor from 1986 to 2010. Then I resurfaced as a part-time contract teacher and tutor from 1988 on, moving to full time from 2010 on upon retiring from my second career. I have had numerous students over the years, too many to count. I have helped at least 8 students graduate from high school or pass the GED in the last ten years.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : R697/h

Details

My rates can be negotiated depending on the student's age, student's school level, travel distance, level of difficulty of the subject, convenience of hours selected for sessions, number of siblings that might be added to a session, and multiple subjects that might be covered, including mathematics at various levels of difficulty
