description of :
My teaching background is in English grammar
and writing, but as my children are just
starting school my areas of study have
expanded as well. Take, for instance, the
current Knowledge Asset offering Maths,
which is the result of my desire to get the
most foundational information about
something like Maths or the English language
and build a knowledge base.

's preferred teaching style:
My teaching style is relational meaning that
the central thread which expresses an
offering I make toward imparting knowledge
to someone is to feel secure in the process.
This does not mean that students lack
opportunities to show what they have
learned; on the contrary, because I know
where my strength lies, much of my overt
attention has gone into student assessment
and how to clearly define my expectations.
