Business

I have a Masters Degree in business from UCLA. I have 40 years experience in Corporate Business and businesses I have owned personally. I am an excellent speaker and communicator.

English

I am a qualified tutor in English Composition because I have had a good deal of experience in this subject. I have a Master's Degree from UCLA which requires excellent skills to achieve. I received a 3.5 GPA in graduate school as well as passed the Graduate school entrance exam. I have teaching experience at the college level both at Cal State Fullerton and at UC Irvine. I am constantly assisting my students in study habits necessary to be successful in learning their subject matter. I am an advocate of learning excellent preparation skills for any subject you would like to master. I won a contest for the best written paper on Marketing produce in a contest with graduate marketing students when I was in school along with a $500 award - and that was because of excellent English composition. I would love to be able to share my experience and knowledge with you as one of my tutoring students.

Marketing

I have a Masters Degree in business from a prestigious business school and a specialization in Marketing. I have taught Marketing at both the undergraduate and graduate level. I have 40 years experience in sales and marketing in my own business.

Public Speaking

I am an excellent public speaker and am currently in training to become a corporate Keynote Speaker. I will be attending the Gove-siebold Speech Class in Atlanta June 7 - June 9 2013. I hope to be a fee speaker by year end.

QuickBooks

Quick books has been my primary accounting software for 30 years. I have used both Quicken and Quick Books for both personal and business bookkeeping. I still use quicken personally to do all of my accounting.

Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor in "study skills" because I have had a good deal of experience in this subject. I have a Master's Degree in Business, which requires excellent skills to achieve. Got a 3.5 GPA in graduate school as well passed the Graduate school exam. I have teaching experience at the college level, both at Cal State Fullerton and at UCI where I was an Associate professor. I was constantly assisting my students in study habits necessary to be successful in our program. I am an advocate of learning excellent preparation skills for any subject you would like to master. I won a contest for the best paper on Marketing against all graduate marketing students when I was in school along with a $500 award - and that was because of my excellent Study Skills. I would love to be able to share my experience and techniques with my tutoring students.
