Hello, my name is Ericka! In May 2007, I graduated with my Associates of Science Degree in Social Work from Georgia Perimeter College in Dunwoody, GA. This past August 2011 I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Management degree from the University of Phoenix with a 3.82 GPA. I made the decision to further my education by attending the Northcentral University to obtain my M.Ed. - Organizational Leadership (OL) because of my motivation for life and knowledge. MOS Certified: Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint. Proficient in Microsoft Outlook and Publisher.

I was born with a form of Muscular Dystrophy called Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease. I was diagnosed at the age of two and I have been fully dependent on the use of a power wheelchair for thirteen years now. At a young age, my mother taught me how to be self-sufficient and independent. I never let my disability stand in the way of overcoming any obstacle. I enjoy empowering younger and older individuals on organizational and leadership skills. I really like working with elementary school students with English, reading, writing, communication and study skills. My passion in life is helping others succeed, especially the disabled and special needs community, at their individual life and educational goals!

Approved subjects

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.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Microsoft Outlook for approximately 11+ years. My experience derives from non-profit secretarial work, personal technology maintenance, and disabled sports correspondences. I am self-taught and MOS Certified.

Microsoft Publisher

I have been using Microsoft Publisher for approximately 11 years. My experience with using this desktop publishing application was gained from creating and designing organizational publications, newsletters, calendars, business stationary and invitations among other things. I am self-taught and MOS Certified.

Microsoft Windows

I have been using the Microsoft Windows OS for approximately 11+ years. My experience derives from high school/college work and non-profit work. I have a high knowledge of software and system operations. I am self-taught and MOS Certified.

Public Speaking

I have gained my experience with public speaking through giving speeches, lectures and television appearances on the topics of disabled advocacy, living with the challenges of being disabled and anti-miscegenation. My educational experience has allowed me to take several communication courses as well as on-stage school productions.

Study Skills

With over 15 years of creating individually based study skills techniques, I help individuals identify what method/s are going to work for him or her. Techniques include but are not limited to verbalization memory strategies, visualization memory strategies, games, time management, and writing. The great thing with study skills is it brings out the creative side of individuals and because there is no one set way for everyone, unique programs can be designed!
