Hi, Everyone!

Thank you so much for checking me out here on Patreon.  I thought I would just give you a little taste of who I am and what I do.

I have been teaching electrical apprenticeship and foundation since 2009.
 
I absolutely love my job!  It involves a lot of theory that can be tricky sometimes.  I had a few students tell me that they wish I had my lectures online so that they could use them as a study aid.  

I started making little tutorial videos using my iPad on an app called explain everything.  I had a blast making them and my students have found it very helpful.  You can check out my youtube channel here.  

I also started a blog for electrical apprentices called The Electric Academy and I write articles on tips and hints for electrical apprentices (or any trade for that matter).  I also post tutorial videos with write ups on hard to understand electrical topics.

I have a Facebook live video show where I address topics that are given to me from members of my site.  Some of these videos have been:

  • Meter safety
  • How to wire a three-way switch
  • How to get a raise
  • Taking pride in your work

This is where you come in :)  
I want to up my game with my content creation!  I love doing this stuff but it all takes time.

With three kids and a side business, I have a limited amount of time.  I know that there is such a need for this (You've told me) so I want to keep this going.

With your money, I will be able to slow down on the side business and can put my focus on the electric Academy.

Whether you donate or not,  my number one goal is to keep my content free and to keep creating.

Thank you so much!
