- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I haven't done any "formal" continuing education, however I am always continually learning. A lot of that learning is from my experience with my students. It forces me to look things up at times until the right key is found. There are no shortcuts, except to learn the mind of the student well enough to communicate information effectively.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
Teaching privately was actually suggested to me by a friend in college. Once I began, I never stopped. I fell in love.
