Hi there!

Thank you for taking the opportunity to learn a little more about me. I am a first-generation college-goer and attended USC for my undergraduate degree before heading over to England for my postgraduate degree. I am fluent in Spanish, a lover of mathematics (originally a Mechanical Engineering major), a professional photographer, and have worked in finance and advertising, so my experience covers the whole gamut of tutoring possibilities.

Teaching is a great passion of mine, and there is nothing more rewarding than helping someone come to the solution of a problem on their own, especially when they doubt themselves from the outset. I love proving that you CAN do anything; sometimes it just takes another person to help you look at it differently. I am very excited to help with your studies and look forward to speaking with you soon.

Cheers,
N

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.

Business

My educational background is in business of all sorts - my undergraduate studies concerned US and Global Business Administration with a strong emphasis on strategy and management. My master's focused on innovation management from inception - in entrepreneurial companies and in old - to being something that is ingrained in a company's culture.

Career Development

I have been a mentor through the Alumni network for USC in Los Angeles to current students and recent graduates who are interested in the roles/industries I have been involved in. I truly enjoy this and love helping others find their way and successfully navigate today's (complex) job market.

Czech

I am a native Czech speaker. I learned English and Czech simultaneously and have extensive experience tutoring Czechs in English and vice-versa. I am completely fluent as far as reading, speaking, and writing and can assist with the various dialects found throughout the country.

Macintosh

I have been working on Macs for over 10 years. I work with both Macs and PC's on a daily basis and thoroughly understand the nuances between the two systems. I am familiar with Macs inside out from setup to software, application usage, and beyond.

Marketing

I have been a marketing professional for over five years. I have worked in start-ups, advertising agencies, and Fortune 100 and 500 companies, and I studied international marketing at an undergraduate and graduate level.

Microsoft Outlook

I work with Microsoft Outlook on a daily basis managing communication and meetings at a Fortune 500 company. I have multiple years of experience working with this software.

Photography

I am a licensed Getty Images photographer and have been shooting professionally for almost 10 years. I am proficient in all aspects of digital and film photography from composition, exposure, lighting, and more.
