Hello,

I'm an enthusiastic tutor and really pleased that you are proactively seeking the structure that tutoring offers. I graduated with a Master of Science degree (Workforce Training & Development major) from University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS in 2001 and a Master of Business Administration from Herzing University in 2011. Between USM and Herzing, I enrolled in post-grad business courses at the University of New Orleans. I passed my Elementary Education Content Knowledge Praxis II exam in May of 2013 and the Biology Praxis II in 2011.

You can depend on me to respond to your needs and guide you. We'll work together to increase your independence and get through the transition from earlier years to Common Core familiarity. I will use your private lessons to coach you, demonstrate ways to organize effectively and thus increase your study skills, and help you to see test parts and test-taking approaches differently than you would without me. You will be expected to plan your schedule relative to the size of your tasks, execute given instructions, and double-check your work.

The August 2014 Huffington Post says that "as the standardized multiple-choice test fades into the past, students will be expected to develop the answers themselves, and then to explain the process they used. Math students will have to write explanations of their answers. English students will have to cite material they have read to support the positions they take", Critical thinking, math, writing skills, and GED subjects are regular parts of my weekly activities. ASVAB students come often to me to practice math and science, the two subjects that comprise the largest percent of their exam questions. The Common Core state standards have arrived here in 2014 so the State Department of Education reading and math requirements have changed.

The list below has the subjects that are listed on the Louisiana Civil Service website and are included on the government employees qualifications exam. I have loads of problems pertaining to this specific exam so don't hesitate to ask for help from me. Do you recognize them as parts of many tests?

I can help with reading comprehension, spelling, grammar, math, working with sorting, numbers, letters and order, recognizing proper grammar and punctuation, customer service, human relations, problem solving, charts and diagrams, directions and coding, and more!

I'm persistent, patient, resourceful, and practical-minded. I offer hours between from early morning until 9pm during the week and on weekends until 5 with extended hours if possible.

Thanks for using WyzAnt. I'm looking forward to meeting you.

ASVAB

There is a way for you to get prepared to take your tests; you can use hypothetical examples, practice aloud, and review the ASVAB test format. You will reap the reward of inner calm as test day approaches by reassuring yourself that you have done everything that you can possibly do to cover the subject matter. You are the one with the problems and will eventually have the answers. With me as your mentor, you can hear yourself thinking and together we'll locate your trouble areas.

Biology

I had Biology and Earth Science courses while a student during the early part of this century. I can help make ecology, Punnett squares, DNA, RNA, the water cycle, Earth sciences, and the bottom of the ocean seem real with illustrations while you make your reading skills improve just like any college student needs to. I would tell you to cover your biology software at any time on your own but also use your own skill and creativity to make the subject rich with your personal effort. We can build models or read excerpts that I bring to the lesson.

Business

I received my Master of Business Administration degree. The year before I started the MBA program, I took some courses in business at the University of New Orleans. Business Communication Speech I and II courses required us to prepare speeches and deliver them. Some of them were timed. I was gaining experience by participating in presentations, debates, and speeches. To be successful with impressive business interactions in the challenging, fast paced, and competitive field of business you need as much coaching and experience that you can obtain. You can call me to be sure that you are articulating words that aren't that familiar to you. You can also expect me to develop a lesson plan that teaches you the value of structured time and is suited for your particular requirements.

Career Development

I can use my MBA from Herzing University and post-graduate business courses at University of New Orleans plus my own pursuit of jobs to help people who are not yet employees of a business. I also have the web to locate innovative and recent advances made in the job market. In our lessons, we'll create interviews and act in them, seek the parameters of the students' interests and propensities, work to self-assess and locate strong and little compatibility, and look at job boards. We'll take time to analyze our discoveries and concentrate on prioritizing and structuring career development effort.

Composition (Music)

I'm from Berklee College of Music of Boston and Newcomb College of New Orleans. I was a classical piano performer for ten years as a youth and later given my recording studio engineering credentials. I have studied the rules of writing and theory used to create melodies, counterpoint, harmony, sketches, full composition, theory, and chord progressions.

Computer Science

When I was a student a few years ago, I enrolled in a Computer Science course as an elective. As your Computer Science tutor, I will use my knowledge of the subject to enhance your pursuit. I use a computer daily and can give you hands on assignments that will make the course you take clear. Your private lessons will help you to recognize and understand spoken and written technical language.

Cooking

If you wish to learn to make hors d'oeuvres, soups, and classic American meals, call me right away. I have cookbooks, skills, and experience for the purpose of preparing you for a win-win situation in any kitchen. I would like to share typical expectations, policies, and role model behavior that will keep you paid. We'll enjoy the vast wealth of information that our public libraries has. I'll bring my laptop and start a file in your name that we'll eventually print and place in your own folder.
I can share with you budgeting, cooking and storage, and kitchen management principles.

Ear Training

As a local New Orleans choir member, I'm required to read new sheet music issued weekly to us by our director. We read the notes on the music staff. An A440 tuning fork or pitch pipe is used to start ear training students. Once the student hums that pitch of A440, it is okay to move on to other frequencies using interval knowledge. If music becomes important as a major pursuit to you, you can learn from me harmony and other unfamiliar parts of written music. We'll examine it as music theory rather than music performance.

Economics

In the spring of 2003 I finished Economics 1000 at our local University of New Orleans. World poverty, market structures and prices, government control of prices, economics of higher education, economics of crime were topics in Chapters 1-3 and 5 as well as our first one hour exam. We sat in a huge auditorium while lectured by our professor standing on a stage with slides on the screen. We finished 13 chapters while covering a huge number of policy, taxation, energy problems, and health issues with social security poverty problems and discrimination that semester. I have many T-F and multiple choice quizzes as well as my text and workbook.

Elementary (K-6th)

In the Gulf Coast region of Mississippi, I am a K-12K substitute teacher daily during the school term. I cover math, reading, essay writing, science, computer learning, and art with the students. I regularly help the students prepare for their assessments as well as lead them towards solutions that will get them good grades. I'm used to answering their questions, asking them for answers to my questions, and giving them quizzes.

It is challenging to work in a variety of situations, and tutoring encompasses a multi-faceted set of values. I like challenges since it is rewarding to choose the proper paths to solutions. Learning on a one-to-one basis provides students with trust, conviction, and inner peace. One of your goals is to arrive back to your classmates filled with a sense of self-respect and strength. My goal is to help you to strengthen your weaknesses.

To tutor those in elementary school, I begin by reviewing their subjects of the year before. After determining which parts of the lesson that the student can benefit by hearing in a person to person (P2P) setting, I compile word lists, vocabulary, math terms, and start teaching. My current student will be a 6th grader in the forthcoming school term. We have recently covered what dialect is by reading aloud a library book filled with it and that she brought to the lesson. We have been studying percentages, business sales, measurements using conversions, fractions, and simple math. Through it all, she has been requested by me to write numbers and words if her initial attempt can be neater or isn't legible. Her reading lessons include compiling of vocabulary words, quizzes accompanying her stories, dipthongs, and pronunciation with corrections when necessary. She has been listening to certain word endings to help her improve her spelling and pronunciation through repetition and recognition. She and I are having a wonderful 2011 summer relationship at the comfortable office I have in my apartment. I hope that you will send your student my way!

General Music

In my own experience as a private lessons student are the subjects of music theory and performance. Recitals required daily practice that lasted for the ten years I played classical piano. I graduated in music after a hiatus for ten years from piano and loved learning how to use technology manuals and equipment in recording studios. Currently, I participate in a vocal choir and a bell choir for which both sight singing and general music knowledge are important.

Law

I have just started compartmentalizing the LSAT here in 2013 using Barron's pass key so that LSAT test-takers can depend on me to help them. Yet, my goal is to teach you to take your tests with insight, habits, and preparation that you wouldn't have on your own. We should start well in advance of the test date. We can feel relieved that we can see your progress and happy that you were often pleased by our interaction, deductions, observations, and explorations.

Linear Algebra

Tutoring throughout the summer of 2013 with higher education students, I refreshed and built my knowledge weekly by reviewing and solving with them many math problems. These hours included linear equations, quantitative math, graphs, percentages, inequalities, ratios and proportions, and geometry among some others. Cross-multiplication of fractional form equations has to be used to transform the problem into ax + b = 0 where a is not equal to 0, and the final
x = -b/a. I have been using the distributive property, combining like terms, conversions, and radicals in the steps for students.

Logic

To fulfill my general requirements in the math area at UNO, I took a Logic Math Course at UNO and earned an A. I also have been tutoring students in Critical Reasoning that I have in my GRE and GMAT as well as LSAT. My reckoning is augmented by my math experience.

Marketing

I do lots of technical reading and study marketing techniques to keep my online store competitive. I use HTML Markup Language, colors, banners, personalized information, and advertising to market my products.

MCAT

If you're ready to proceed with the task of getting admitted to medical school, I'm ready to be your mentor. I will surely provide some materials to practice with you as well as establish a lesson plan. You have your basic knowledge and can acquire the rest by studying aloud with me. I want to help you to identify and strengthen your weak spots. I'll help you with general principles in addition to the actual material.

Microsoft Publisher

I have used Publisher extensively during the last two years. I have the program and the public library I use has a color printer and the program. I make post card size announcements for art shows, large organization functions, and personal websites. I have a lot of fun with it and can certainly help you save time since I know the ins and outs of this program. It will also be my pleasure to show you how to make brochures.

Microsoft Windows

I have used Windows for the last twelve years. I'm familiar with browsers, setting up, uploading, downloading, applications, and your Windows Internet Explorer 8 platform. Does it sound like you need a vocabulary lesson or several? I can help you with the terminology that you'll need when you talk to technicians about lost connectivity or security issues. I had to get quick with various issues in Windows since I have had the pressure of due dates and large simultaneous assignments for school or business. I have a Master of Science from USM and a Master of Business Administration from Herzing University.

Music Production

My degree is in the field of audio recording and was earned in Boston at a renowned jazz college, Berklee College of Music. I have recorded and mixed productions using small and large bands and a variety of genres plus and sweetened basics accomplished by studio musicians with other engineers. I can help you to add or remove instruments that you have chosen for your pieces. If you want to complete multitrack recordings, I can assist you to choose microphones and their placement, figure recording parts schedules, determine budgets, and manage your personnel.

Phonics

Hello, I worked weekly with nursery school children. I took an active interest in helping them with phoneme awareness (the sounds of each letter in the alphabet), word groups, and the movements their mouth makes. I pay close attention to enunciation and progress with pronunciation. I bring my laptop to lessons and will plan lessons whether original or from websites with your help.

Praxis

Praxis is really enlivening and rather like getting a seven course meal ready for 10 guests. You can pass if you just prioritize and recite aloud. I have taken and passed two Praxis II exams. Your call to a tutor means that you are ready to reach this goal and get to another. I'll be pleased to help you with the Praxis material. I have the PRAXIS II: NTE (National Teacher Examinations Preparation Guide) in paperback. Let's get together to sharpen your skills.

Public Speaking

I'm skilled at delivering oral and oral and visual presentations using PowerPoint, Excel, and slide projectors. I was taught delivery techniques, coaching, and proper timing at two different universities. Techniques include eye to audience contact, vocal projection, and giving anecdotes. My recent experience includes college classrooms, exhibitions for merchandising companies, substitute teaching, and the fellowship halls of two churches.

QuickBooks

I have the Quickbooks software program and can meet you in the public libraries as I do with all of my students. I'm an expert user of computers, and can show you around through QB. QuickBooks holds tax information, business records (including salaries and time sheets) and customer data. You will benefit from training to use this software on your own time, rather than learning under employer who might rush you.

Sight Singing

I receive a new song weekly for both vocal choir as well as bell choir. I use my sight singing skills like anyone there to reach the right notes. I learned how to sing at the first sight of a song written in musical form in private lessons and in college classrooms.

Social Studies

I'm qualified to direct you through maps, scales, American History and Government, U.S. relations with other nations, and timeline changes. I recently passed a social studies exam for professionals wishing to teach, and can help you to do the same.

Study Skills

A tutor certified in study skills can extract and compile vital information for students. The web presents loads of overwhelming information about the subjects in school and also study skills. Students may not be able to cover everything. My intention as a study skills tutor is to focus for the student until the student can. I know how to format and reformat information, find the key issues, and demonstrate mnemonic approaches that students can use when preparing their classwork. I know that smart study habits can decrease the anxiety of students. I have done that for myself before and am willing to help others do it. I have helped countless students while teaching to pay attention to the fine points of collecting and organizing information. Studying can be fun once students take note to studying as an art.

WyzAnt presents me with students that need to increase their study skills. Due to my workforce training and development, as well as business degrees that I have and the teaching in K-12 that I do, I know how to study and guide you to study. My sources of studying approaches are from the web, my own educators, years of experience as an educator, and my personal library collection. I am a degreed, practical knowledge scientist. As a student striving for a degree, I had to meet the course criteria, was expected to submit assignments in a timely fashion, and finish extensive research before constructing presentations and papers. Gradually, I began to study more proficiently and feel better in the time it took to get a desirable result. I learned that I would have to organize what I studied so that from year to year I could locate what I had researched and logged and use it again. Your students will learn from me how to efficiently package your academic efforts.
