I'm a college professor. My training (master?s degree and doctorate) is in developmental education, which focuses on teaching students to develop the skills necessary to excel in college.

I have a master's and a doctorate in Developmental Education. This field of study focuses on helping students succeed in college. It's focus population is under-prepared college students, but the techniques of developmental education can be applied to high school and middle school students as well.

In addition, while completing my graduate studies I spent three years as a GED instructor, helping students with study skills and the following content areas: math, reading, English, writing, social studies, and science.
