I am an experienced instructor and substitute teacher. I have earned a BS, MBA, and completed coursework in a PhD program. My BS and MBA degrees are from Auburn University in Auburn, AL. I completed coursework for a PhD at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA. My MBA and PhD coursework concentrated on business classes and content. I have an understanding of subjects that pertain to these degrees including: business, economics, statistics, finance, accounting, and public speaking. I am also competent in writing, English, proof reading, and history.
In addition to traditional courses and coursework, I am also adept in helping clients prepare for taking standardized tests. I have completed several of these tests in the past, for my own education, and am familiar with the formats. I have also helped a plethora of others study and review for standardized tests including: GED, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and PRAXIS I & II.
To facilitate a productive learning environment I encourage the student to e-mail me in advance any specific instructions or questions pertaining to the tutored subject or any special needs he or she might have. This way, I can be prepared ahead of time of any particular areas that need extra attention. I also feel It is important to recognize that people learn in many different ways. I am cognizant of this fact and will utilize several ways to stimulate and educate the student including: real life examples, flash cards, thorough explanation, quizzes, etc.
I can help you get ready for the Praxis. I have helped many people prepare for the Praxis I and Praxis II exams. I have also coached many people as they prepared for other standardized tests. The techniques I use come from my personal experience in standardized test taking and from coaching others. I have many different methods that I utilize to help you as we work together, after a few sessions I will be able to recognize which technique is best for you. I also go over test taking strategies and tips for the week of the test.
I have a plethora of public speaking experience. In graduate school, both for my master’s degree and for the work I completed working towards a Ph.D.; I had to present information to various groups on a regular basis. For this, I would have to put together a concise and structured presentation in a manner that would inform, influence, or entertain my audience. Often, these presentations required PowerPoint slides and handouts. I have several years of experience presenting papers at international and national conferences. I have also taken an undergraduate course on public speaking.
I can help you with some of the daunting tasks of public speaking; including selecting what to include in a speech and how to present it. If handouts or slides are needed for the speech I can help you with this as well. I can also assist with the delivery of the speech and how to prepare for being in front of people and speaking to a whole group effectively.
Excellent! — Meri was patient and very well versed in excel. I was a nervous wreck before our session but am now calmly calculating frequency distributions and looking forward to pivot tables :) ...
