I have a Bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems and 26 years of business experience with State Farm Insurance Companies.
I worked as a mid-level manager, a corporate trainer, and as an underwriting research analyst. I am very experienced in researching a variety of business-related topics, writing cost-benefit analysis reports, and writing white papers and executive summaries.
I have also completed a Master's degree in Education with a specialization in TESOL through an online program, so I am familiar with the demands of participating in online discussion forums and completing a degree in an online format. I can assist business students in a variety of ways because of these experiences.
I have a Master's degree in Education and have tutored both adults and children in Elementary Reading and Math through the STAR literacy program.
I also work part-time as an instructor with the Enopi Bloomington teaching reading and math enrichment courses in students K-8.
I received a Master's of Education with a concentration in Teaching English as a Second Language from Ashford University in August 2011 and graduated with a 4.0 out of 4.0 GPA.
I have been a volunteer ESL tutor with the McLean County STAR Literacy program and have recently been hired as a paid instructor to teach a new ESL class for parents at Cedar Ridge Elementary School in Bloomington.
I have been knitting and crocheting for over 40 years. I learned the basics from my grandmother at age 8 and have since studied different techniques. I have made and given blankets, baby clothing, and sweaters to friends and relatives for many years. I have also sold a number of winter hat and scarf sets online. I am a patient teacher and would love to share the ability to create beautiful and practical items with anyone who wants to learn.
I am an experienced public speaker with over 10 years of experience in Toastmaster's International where I achieved the Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) designation and won various club and area contests for speaking, evaluating, and participating in TableTopics.
I worked for 10 years as a volunteer Reading tutor with the STAR Literacy program. I now teach English as a Second Language at Heartland Community College.
I was a volunteer tutor with the STAR Literacy program for over ten years and assisted both children and adults in improving their reading, writing, and study skills. I have a Bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems from a traditional university and a Master's degree in Education where a significant number of the courses were completed online. I also have more than 200 hours of experience as a tutor with WyzAnt and as a paid tutor and instructor at Heartland Community College.
I am able to develop study plans for students based upon their own individual learning styles including note taking, highlighting, using flashcards, models or other manipulatives, auditory strategies including utilizing books and notes on CD, or mapping strategies.
