Hello, my name is Michelle. Nice to meet you! I am a business professional with 13+ years of experience in marketing, public speaking, writing and using various MS Office tools (Word, Excel, Powerpoint). I have my BS from Cornell University and an MBA from Duke University. I am also a member of Toastmasters International where I have a achieved the Competent Communicator status (10 speeches in a year) and have competed in area, district and statewide public speaking competitions. But more importantly, I have always had a passion for teaching people one-on-one. In my day-to-day work, I often get involved in mentoring co-workers and friends and helping them with their specific tutoring needs. People tell me that I have a very calm and patient tutoring style that allows people to feel comfortable expressing their thoughts, feelings and fears. I also provide support, positive reinforcement and constructive feedback to help my "students" build confidence in a certain area.
My tutoring experience falls into the following categories:
overcoming the fear of public speaking
preparing for speeches
getting evaluations on speech and receiving tips for improvement
learning the basics of MS Office
learning advanced tips in Powerpoint, Excel
understanding social media (getting a basic social media presence in place for business use)
using Facebook, including changing privacy settings
using Twitter, including setting up an account, using hashtags, DMs, etc.
building a marketing plan
building a basic, Excel based, budget
Thank you for reviewing my profile and I look forward to possibly being your tutor!
