I have a diverse background, having served in the US Navy as a Cryptologic Technician Maintenance (electronics) for six years. Afterward, I attended Contra Costa College in San Pablo, Ca and earned an Associate's Degree in General Education, followed by a year of study at The University of California Berkeley.

I've studied a variety of subjects, including the humanities, the history of the Renaissance and Reformation, the creative processes, dream work, religious studies, Indian philosophy, mysticism, ancient Egyptian religion, Jungian psychology, women's studies and more traditional subjects such as English, math, astronomy and geology. In addition, I have earned a certificate in Professional Photography from the NY Institute of Photography and another in Computer Programming (BASIC, Pascal and C languages). I completed my Bachelor's Degree through Thomas Edison State College in Trenton, NJ with an emphasis on Photography.

I've worked as a freelance photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area and later went on to work as a Quality Control Technician for Qualex, Inc, a division of Eastman Kodak. I also worked in Qualex retail photolabs in this role for 13 years. Then I worked as a photo lab service technician and technical trainer for a company in Miami, Fl that specializes in cruise ship photography. I traveled throughout the world in this role, working with and training young photographers of various nationalities.

While working in the photo industr,y I also studied towards a Master's Degree in Holistic Nutrition. Although I completed all of the coursework with a very high GPA, I never turned in my thesis due to life changing events. I have also studied Evolutionary Astrology, Reiki, Chakras, stress management, intuition, ancient history, investing and a number of other subjects, earning continuing units for my efforts. This is an ongoing process, and I continue to take new courses. I am also working to become a Certified Holistic Life Coach. I hope to complete my certification very soon.

I love working with children and know how to make learning fun. I am very patient, and I am currently tutoring children in order to help develop their reading skills. At the same time, I am taking courses in elementary education and reading skills.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

General Computer

I have worked with computers since the 1970s. I studied computer programming, have built my own desktop PCs and use computers everyday. I worked as a Field Service Technician for ten years and almost all of the systems I worked on were computer related. I have installed and repaired both computer hardware and software. I have worked with both PC and Mac computers and laptops. I own both types. I am familiar with DOS, Windows 3.1 - Windows 7 and Mac OSX. I have some experience with Linux as well. In regard to computer programming, I earned a certificate from NRI in BASIC, Pascal and C programming. I just earned continuing education units in Computer Basics 101 from Universal Class which I took to "brush up" for tutoring.

Nutrition

I am very interested in holistic health and nutrition. I completed all coursework for a master's degree in holistic Nutrition through Clayton College of Natural Health. Although I wrote my thesis, I never submitted it and the school went bankrupt so I never completed my degree. I continue to keep abreast and up to date in relation health and nutrition.

Photography

I have had a passion for photography since I was 9 years old. I learned to use a manual SLR in the 1970s. I also learned how to develop and print B&W film in a home darkroom as well as develop E-6 (slide) film.
In addition I earned a certificate in Professional Photography through the NY Institute of Photography in the late 70s.

I worked for Qualex, Inc (a division of Eastman Kodak) for 13 years. I was a Senior Lead Quality Control Tech responsible to making sure film chemistry was properly mixed, silver recovery units were working properly, and all color and B&W printers were properly balanced.

I went on to work for Image Photo Services as a Field service Technician and Technical Trainer. I just recently retired from that position. I am well versed in both photography and working on and using photolab equipment.

I have college credits from photography coursework.

I learned to use a DSLR in the early to mid 2000s. I do freelance photography and have a website featuring a small amount of my work. I have also had work published.

In addition I have a self-published photo book.

In a nutshell, I have the passion and skill-set.

Reading

I have completed a course titled "How to Teach Reading Fundamentals" in which I earned continuing education units. I am an avid reader and used to tutor children in my neighborhood in reading.

Fine teacher and helpful. — First class teacher. Learned a great deal about computers and Facebook and Twitter accounts from her and plan on continuing with tutorials with her. Second lesson was as enriching and informative as the initial lesson. Have learned more about facebook and twitter in two lessons with Catherine than I have on my own over the past two years. ...
