While the majority of my career was as an auditor and accounting consultant, I am currently utilizing my training and experience as a tutor and substitute teacher. I am currently a licensed substitute teacher for the South Bend Community School Corporation and place emphasis on Math, English Grammar and Reading. It is my belief that mastering these skill sets in the primary grades (K-4) will go a long was to paving the way for an individual's academic and career success. If desired, I will meet with the student's teacher to understand what specific skills or concepts need reinforcement and design a tutorial plan to focus on improvement in the noted areas.

Reading

Study Skills

I am currently a licensed substitute teacher working in primary schools. I work daily with students on developing habits, which will help them maximize their learning experience. It is my belief that developing good study skills in a students early years, as well as proficiency in reading and basic math skills in primary school is fundamental to success in a student's future educational endeavors.

My professional experience as a CPA and consultant required that my spoken and written thoughts were communicated to result in action. Having a broad vocabulary allowed me to be better understood and it can do the same for you.

Writing

My profession as a CPA and Audit Manager required that I prepare numerous business reports and develop excellent writing habits. I can provide the guidance needed to produce written communications which are clear, concise and descriptive as well as being grammatically correct.
