USHGA Certified Advanced and Tandem Instructor. I have been flying since 1990 and teaching since 1997. I was rated at the major schools of Kitty Hawk and Lookout Mountain. I know the value of structured programs of instruction. Twenty two years of teaching experience in the university has honed my systematic curriculum-based approach to flying instruction. I try to adapt my teaching style to the student's particular learning style as long as it does not compromise safety. Finding the comfort zone of each student is my particular strength as an instructor. My motto is, "The teaching leads the teacher and the taught".
Born in Detroit, Mi to World War II Polish immigrants in 1961. Graduated from Hamtramck High School, Western Michigan University, and University of Michigan with degrees in Geology and Information Science.
