I have an Associate's in business administration and am currently enrolled in a Bachelor's program for communications. I have 10+ years of experience working in an administrative setting and am an expert in Microsoft Excel, Word, Powerpoint and Outlook. I have basic familiarity with Microsoft Access.
Over the years, I have spoken/performed in front of audiences ranging from 1 person to 3000 people. I've also taken oral communications classes which have only helped my public speaking skills. I'm extremely comfortable with a computer and can easily help a student learn everything from the basics (how to send an email or save a file) to more advanced tasks (like how to use MS Word to merge/print labels or do a Powerpoint presentation that includes music, sound effects and animation).
I've coordinated take your kids to Work day at my employer for the past 5 years and love kids, so I have the patience to teach younger ones. I've also been an office administrator at an engineering firm for almost the past 3 years and manage staff, so I know what skills you'll need to impress in the workplace. I studied French for 5 years (1 year in junior high and 4 years in high school). Upon graduation, I was fluent in this language. However, if you don't use it, you lose it. So I'm okay with basic French and some intermediate/advanced phrases.
