Twitter username: pgeorge
I have over 25 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have informally taught science for 13 years in a science museum. I also taught high school science in a public high school for 7 years. Currently, I teach algebra on line.
I tutored my younger sibling while I was a public school student. I have tutored my mother in how to use a computer. In addition, I have tutored a severely physically challenged woman to use Microsoft Word and email.
I have taught middle school science and coding (using Scratch) online for four years. I have taught high school and middle school math for 5 years online. While teaching one of the online science classes, I also co-developed the course, using Moodle and Elluminate Live!. I have coached adults in using 3 online classroom platforms: two of which are Elluminate Live! and Blackboard Collaborate.
