ENJOYABLE LEARNING

I love learning and sharing my knowledge, which is why I love my job as a professor at FAU. If learning is fun, we all remember how to maneuver through an activity which we learned by having fun. When we are enjoying an activity, we become relaxed and receptive to active learning. Being quickly successful at the beginning of a learning process builds confidence in an area of difficulty. Motivation is tied to Achievable goals and builds the confidence required to achieve the desired goal, learning.

Business

In addition to having my MBA from John Hopkins University in Baltimore, I was a V.P. for Bloomingdale's NY and owned my own business. My Business employed approximately 12 persons and operated with great success.

Anyone endeavoring to set up a business needs to take the proper time to set-up it properly. However, it is never too late to structure your business for success as proven by my success rate teaching this to specific groups of small businesses. All conversations are held in confidence and backed up by a confidentiality agreement.

Microsoft Outlook

I have successfully executed MS Outlook for 15 years for both business and personal use. I took several courses including one at FAU offered to faculty and several of a self-guided style. I have taught it at several learning institutions and been on a consumer MS advisory council. At FAU we are updated periodically by our in-service department in a hands-on classroom technique. I taught beginners the use in several firms to both current and potential employees.

Religion

I have been teaching comparative religion since 1994 and the Bible as an elective to high school students since 2001. I have escorted trips to the Holy Land for mixed groups of faiths for the past 6 years. I am currently teaching The Old Testament to high school seniors in a private school setting. I included religions and culture in my Masters Dissertation.

Social Studies

I taught Social Studies for the first six years of my teaching career. It has now been renames Social Science and includes Geography, Economics, Political Science and Histories both US and world. I have now successfully tutored 4 students in these areas for the FTCE Teat. I also studied for and successfully took the Teachers Exam which included the Social Studies component. In seeking my degrees I have taken multiple courses in these areas through out the years.

Study Skills

I have for more than 6 years been teaching study and testing skills at the University level. I teach this to freshman in a group environment at FAU as needed. I completed successfully, at University of Miami, a course on the teaching skills and methods for both study and testing skills.

Many of our university students come to the college classroom with poor time management and study skills, struggling for even a "C". I have tutored students in private sessions resulting in a 1-2 grade increase. Although there is not a one skill list fits all, with individual adjustments to there approach everyone can increase their grades.

Using these essential methods, when applied correctly, improve subject material comprehension resulting in improved grades. Beyond the basic when and where factors, there is a deeper level of reading and listening comprehension. Often a student hears the lecture in class and read the word in the text but fails to listen or understand the concept or statements. With practiced study skills, student frustration diminishes resulting in better comprehension and retention. Good study skills are often ignored until poor grade become a factor but it is a problem which can improve with guidance, implementation and practice.

TEAS

I am an RN with my PhD who has been teaching Nursing related qualifying tests such as NCLEX, HESI and TEAS for more than 10 years. I am currently tutoring a students in several types of tests to qualify for nursing schools. I am proficient in all areas of the exam which include English, Reading Comprehension, Math, A&P, Physics and Chemistry. My students do very well in these exams. As a University professor for more than 15 years my teaching experience and skills add to the quality of the tutor experience and test results.
