Assisted Pet And Music Therapy And Companionship
I was a public school science teacher for 23 years then left 4 years ago to start my own dove release business. In addition to dove releases I began visiting schools and senior facilities to share the fascinating history of the doves as messengers. Early on I noticed the overwhelmingly positive reaction the doves received and their inherent therapeutic quality. We then expanded our family business to include animal assisted therapy. Along with the dove I bring my lap dog, Cuckoo. She is a natural therapy dog and is so sensitive to the needs of others offering a nuzzle to those in low spirits. Our program has been well received and we are regular visitors at several senior locations. We also offer music therapy, in particular for those with dementia. Research has shown music and the arts to have healing qualities and are among the last memories to fade. I love gardening, fishing, the outdoors and sports.

About Me And My Time With Pets
My dad has a dog, she actually works at a elementary school and is a therapy dog. I will play with her in her yard and feed her once in a while. I've always wanted a dog but it cost money when you live in an apartment. Also my mom can be a little allergic sometimes.

I love all pets, and I have absolutely no problem walking/feeding/playing with and just generally caring for any animal. I am actually training my own dog, Finn, to be a therapy dog. Therapy dogs have been proven to help children improve their reading skills by having the dog act as a non-judgmental audience. I would definitely be more than willing to incorporate Finn into babysitting or your child's homework time (with your consent of course).

Part Time Math And Reading Tutor, Available Two Weeknights And Every Other Weekend.
Hi, my name is Jonathan! I went to college for six years and decided to drop out and become a police officer. But I still have the "teaching" bug! I have extensive experience tutoring in math, science, and reading at elementary, middle school, and junior high levels. I also have a penchant for teaching people how to drive, especially manual vehicles. One of my main interests is reading. I have a trained therapy dog that has been to many libraries and schools to help children get over their fears of reading out loud. One reason I'm passionate about reading is because I had a stutter growing up. Reading out loud helped me get over that stutter and my fear of speaking in front of crowds. Watching a child come out of their shell and building confidence to read and speak in front of others is a truly heart warming experience that never gets old.
