Interested in numbers and analysis? Looking for the words to express yourself in writing? I've had 15 years of experience teaching undergraduates and graduates these tools. Statistics was my "cognate" in my Ph.D program though my major area of focus was Human Communication Studies. Before completing a Ph.D, though, I worked in corporate situations where I was the senior technical writer, communication specialist, marketing coordinate for high tech, translation project manager, government program coordinator, and even a cultural attachee to a VP from Mercedes Benz. So my real world experience plus years in the classroom help me create learning experiences with actual applications. Many of my students have gone on to become lawyers with excellent writing skills. Some have embraced statistics in healthcare positions -- even though they were number-phobic when I met them for the first time!
I also have skills in working with dyslexic students both in middle school and in higher education. My son is dyslexic and just graduated from UNC Chapel Hill, hurray! I have adapted different methods to help these students either using technology or multisensory approaches. If you have a special ability like this, give me a call and see if we can work something out.
