I have recently retired from the United States Army where I spent those years in leadership, organizational management, intelligence studies and analysis, and as a Russian linguist. With over 20 years of experience in training soldiers, I am experienced in career development coaching to include presentation skills and writing.
Also, I have trained young adults in high school math, mainly algebra, history-both American and European history, and basic Russian language. I will be able to help students think outside the box to solve their educational problems. Through adaptive learning techniques, students will utilize their decision-making skills to broaden their skills in any area that we delve into. I look forward to helping to change the learning culture to one of positive experience.
For almost 20 years I have been helping young adults with their career development. I have been trained in mentoring and counseling for young adults through four different Army leadership schools, for a combined total of 380 days of training. I have counseled and mentored hundreds of young adults on their career progression through the Army and on their life choices of a career after the Army. By using a total, holistic approach to life, I help young adults learn how to integrate their career goals with their family responsibilities for a better work-life balance.
As a leader in the Army for 20 years I have conducted motivational speeches and briefings for hundreds of Soldiers and high ranking military officials. To accomplish this I have attended leadership schools where public speaking was emphasized. I also have a minor specialty from Montana State University in mass communications.
I have 20 years experience as a Russian linguist for the Army, where I worked daily on listening, reading and writing skills. Since retirement in Nov 11, I have continued to keep up the Russian language on a weekly basis. While in the military I attended and received an Associate's in Russian from the Defense Language Institute, Foreign Language Center in Monterey CA. I have also logged over 5000 hours of additional Russian training through the classroom and immersion opportunities.
I am a certified tax preparer, employed throughout the tax season with a large tax preparation company. I continually increase my knowledge through advance training programs and study with the IRS.
