About makethegrade

Grew up in South Jersey. Have traveled all over the world. I've been happily married for over 17 years. Together we have 2 wonderful children. I studied education in college with a major in education and science. I went to Rutgers for Grad school and earned a Masters in nutrition education and a Doctorate in Educational Psychology. I spent 8 years as a musician and play the guitar and piano. I was part of a regionally successful band that put out 4 CD's. I've spent over 30 years off and on in martial arts and am on track to be a 3rd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Both my kids are 2nd degree black belts. Since 1993, I've been teaching in the classroom at the middle school, high school and university level in public and private schools and more recently as a private tutor specializing in Math, Sciences and Test Prep (SAT / ACT). I own an educational counseling center for students to help them reach their educational goals. Over time, we've come to specialize in improved test performance, and academic excellence in math and science. We have over 5000+ success stories. 5 years ago, I expanded to include working with professionals and business owners and the mAke the grAde business AcAdemy was born. I help them establish their goals and attain them through internal marketing, CrossTernal Methodology improved communication skills and excellent follow up techniques. I love teaching and working with people. I love road cycling, gardening, tennis and cruising. I've cruised the Caribbean, Alaska, the Panama Canal. I've recently discovered the secrets to making money on the Internet and enjoy sharing them with my friends.
