Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Microsoft Access

Microsoft Access is a relational database management program, which allows users to create and manage their own databases. This database can then be used to create reports and track ongoing trends. I am highly versed in multiple versions of Microsoft Access, including the most recent version of the software. I have utilized this program in a professional setting, creating databases to track multiple aspects of company statistics, clients, and finances. I have also utilized the program to create company financials and track ordering trends.

Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook is an email client that has grown to become a personal information manager. It can work as a stand alone application or it can be linked with a network. The program allows users to access emails from multiple sources, track schedules and tasks, enter contact information, and utilize journal and note features. I am highly versed in multiple versions of this program, including the most recent version. I have utilized Microsoft Outlook both professionally and personally for over ten years.
