All of Eileen’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Eileen’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

American History

American History major at Mills College with a focus on the Framers of the Constitution and the Social and Intellectual history of the United States. Received at A+ on Senior Seminar Paper and Honorable Mention by the State of CA. I taught American History as a graduate student to undergraduate students.

Business

I have run three different, successful businesses in the Bay Area. All different - consulting, technology and service businesses. I understand the fundamental concepts of business strategy, business development, business planning and PROFIT.

I was runner up of the 1999 Small Business of the Year, CISCO Honoree for the Grand Prize for Sales & Marketing in Business and taught the fundamentals of Small Business Marketing. I also have a certificate from UCLA MDE program in business.

Career Development

I have a master's degree in counseling. Internship in career counseling. Sent time helping people understand what they are "good" at, what they "love" and how to work to achieve the goal of a satisfying career. Worked at the Small Business Administration (SBA) in San Jose helping people who were interested in starting their own business - decide which one was the best for them.

ESL/ESOL

With my master's in counseling, I have been quite effective in helping students learning English particularly conversational English. I like to put my students at ease and help them have fun while learning.

Government & Politics

Graduated with Honors in Government at Mills College. Focused on Foreign Policy, Voting and Urban Policy. Senior Seminar Paper won placement in the State of CA for "Model Cities: Oakland". Have a master's in Public Administration with an emphasis in Organizational Management. As a graduate student, taught government to undergraduate students.

Grammar

If you want to write prose, I am not the person you need to help you with your grammar.

If you want to write precise, straightforward English sentences, I can help.

I have written technical books, marketing plans, business plans and training presentations for engineers, managers as well as students.

I think that writing can be simplified with a good understanding of basic grammar rules.

Marketing

I have worked for 20 years in the marketing field. Won CISCO's 2004 Nat'l Grand Prize in Sales and Marketing for my work with a company called Fabric Banners. Worked for a subsidiary of Xerox and increased the revenue from 20 million to 40 million in 2 years for over 250 products. Taught Introduction to Marketing at the SBA Center in San Jose to small business owners.

QuickBooks

I have used QuickBooks for the last 20 years for our businesses. I have set up QuickBooks (used in conjunction with TurboTax) for clients when other consultants could not. I am interested in helping the clients manage their businesses in the best and simpliest way possible. There are lots of ways to set up QB but it is like organizing your desk - I try to find the best way to set up the system to fit the client's requirements. I am strickly a small business QuickBooks consultant for one or two person offices. NOT for medium to large businesses which need certified CPAs and bookkeepers.

Sewing

I have been sewing for over 15 years - from basic sewing techniques to more advanced projects. I also own a company called "Fabric Banners" where we make digitally printed fabric and sew them into banners, table drapes, flags, etc.

Study Skills

Being a counselor I am keenly aware that each student is different. Study skills need to be tailored to each student - one size does not fit all. Understanding some of the successful methods of studying such as studying at the same time each day or limiting the time that a student spends on any one subject is quite important. As an honor student and trainer, I learned many methods for studying. Most depend on the student and the subject being taught. And most of all - it isn't HARD - it just takes a little practice.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
