I am an experienced classroom teacher, seminar leader and professional feature article writer. I graduated from Olivet Nazarene College in Bourbonnais, IL. I have taught adults, high school, junior high school and elementary English, with an emphasis on reading, vocabulary, spelling, writing, drama and speech. I graduated with a 4.0 on the Dean's list from a mid-size college in Illinois.
My teaching career has taken me from secondary teacher to public relations writing and marketing. I currently work and tutor in the financial services world with a strong emphasis in education for my clients and students. I effectively tutor in public speaking, study skills and business courses which include Microsoft Office, Word, Excel and Power Point.
I have tutored numerous elementary students in reading, writing, spelling, and some math problems. My high school and college students receive help from me with regard to correct outlining methods and essay writing. After the 2007 October fires in Southern California, I tutored all elementary ages of children through SAY/San Diego, which was a tutorial program to help students with all basic skills in reading, math, social studies and science.
I worked with an international visitor from Japan beginning in 2009 through WyzAnt. He was in San Diego on business and needed help with vocabulary, reading, speech and pronunciation skills while visiting Southern California. I taught another adult female student from Vietnam all facets of speech and pronunciation. She was new to the United States. We worked together to improve her English speech and pronunciation for about ten weeks to bring her much success.
I am proud to let you know that an elementary grade student did so well in his reading, writing, vocabulary and test preparation that he was comfortable writing essays on a blogging site. Currently, I teach public speaking and study skills to my students with an emphasis on organization.
It is my pleasure to assist parents and students work to have success in their studies. I enjoy tutoring my students to assist them with advanced skills within their specific study area. I look forward to helping you with your tutoring needs soon.
