Approved subjects are in bold.
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.
I am an adjunct faculty member at Cleary University (Business School) Ann Arbor, MI teaching undergraduates and MBA students Finance, Economics, Global Healthcare, Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Creativity. I have an MBA from City University Cass Business School, London UK and a BA in Economics from UC Berkeley. I have worked as a business executive and a start-up entrepreneur for the last 30 years. I have also been an adjunct Professor teaching Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Strategic Management at Wayne State University Business School Detroit, Concordia University Ann Arbor MI and Washtenaw Community College Ann Arbor, MI.
As a former senior college administrator and current adjunct faculty member, I have a great deal of experience with college counseling and admissions strategies and tactics. I can help students and parents write and/or edit winning college application. I am also good at advising students about what sort of educational experience might be best suited for them. As a result of my varied and successful career path and experience as an entrepreneur, senior manager corporate manager and non profit leader I have a great deal of knowledge about career options and career development strategies. I can help people discover and develop their talents, find great job opportunities and enhance their career.
I studied Economics (my major) and was an A student in the field at the University of California Berkeley and was accepted into the Phd. program there. During my career, I practiced Microeconomics and Macroeconomics as an international business executive and government advisor. I am particularly interested in new models of Economic Development and Innovation. At present, I teach Economics as an adjunct professor at a local university in Ann Arbor.
During my career, I have helped many students and employees with their English reading, writing, spelling, speaking and comprehension. I am widely read and skilled at helping people with these challenges using many person-appropriate techniques and tools for improving skills in these domains. As part of my work in Detroit, I have been developing new interactive online exercises and games to assist young people to become proficient in all areas of English reading, writing, spelling, speaking and comprehension. My education in English prep schools and at Oxford were particularly powerful influences on my development as a tutor and teacher of English language skills.
I have lived and worked in several countries besides the US (England, France, Switzerland, Bangladesh, Germany, Malaysia, Taiwan) and grew up in Europe where I learned to speak German and French besides my native language which is English. I have taught many people how to speak English using a variety of techniques including those used most frequently in ESL/ESOL Tutoring.
I lived, worked and studied in Europe for over 20 years. I attended primary and secondary school in England, France and Switzerland where I studied European History. Besides my native language of English, I speak French and German. I took European History and International Relations at Trinity College, Oxford University and also at UC Berkeley. I have deep expertise in the subject and have taught it as a tutor to students of all ages. I have lectured on European history as an adjunct faculty member, graduate student and guest speaker in many settings here in the US and abroad.
I teach financial management at Cleary University in Ann Arbor and Howell as an Adjunct Professor and tutor students who are taking finance and financial management courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. My strength and focus is on the concepts of finance. I understand the challenges faced by students trying to grapple with the sometimes unfamiliar terminology of finance, often unfamiliar concepts and all the many formulas. I appreciate the difference between a finance perspective and an accounting perspective. I have real world experience in finance as a result of a varied career in international and entrepreneurial business.
I teach a variety of subjects at Cleary University, including Public Speaking. I am also a member of Toastmasters International where we help each other to improve our Public Speaking and Leadership Skills. As a senior executive during my career and founder CEO of several companies I was often called on to make presentations and do Public Speaking about a variety of products, technologies and topics. During my Public Speaking career I have developed a variety of methodologies that have helped my students become good public speakers and overcome their fear of speaking in public.
I recently stepped down after my term ended as a trustee of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan. I was elected to a three year term in that position because, among other things, I have spent 30 years studying and tutoring/teaching comparative religion.
I am a professor at a local business university in Creativity, Innovation, Economics and Culture but I have read widely and deeply int religious studies. My education at UC Berkeley, City University, London UK and Oxford University, though not in Religious Studies (I did Economic, Business and Political Science), involved taking numerous courses on religion and culture and writing about these topics.
I have served in Christian, Islamic and Buddhist countries and engaged with those religions along with many others throughout my life.
I studied World History at Trinity College, Oxford University as part of my work in International Relations and Development Economics. I also studied the field at the University of California Berkeley as part of my dual Degree in Economics and Political Science. I always incorporate World History into the courses I teach at Cleary University. These include Introduction to Business, Entrepreneurship and Innovation (includes the global history of innovation), International Business, Economics and Project Management. I find when I do that it provides an excellent context for my students they do not get anywhere else. I have lived around the world and know the history of many countries very well. I am trilingual in English, French and German.
I know first hand how challenging writing (and spelling) can be. I had to learn how to write in three languages growing up: English, German and French. I have done a lot of work with students of all ages and my own kids over the years helping them to improve their writing and spelling. Along the way I have come up with a few useful tools and tricks of the trade that can really help. Usually its a case of getting the young person really "motivated" to express themselves well and with accuracy. This includes helping them to determine who their audience is and what goal they are aiming to achieve with a piece of writing. Then you show them how to interest the selected audience and communicate with that audience in the most compelling way. I always try to work with lots of fun examples. I like to have my students practice around their interests and experience. My writing background includes literary work, business reports and academic papers. I have tutored people of all ages in writing from age 5 to age 50.
