I am Dr. Georgeanna B., and I'd like to be your tutor. I have more than 20 years' work experience, and I am currently working as a researcher. My interest is in helping Veterans when they return from active duty. Some Veterans have difficulty adjusting to civilian, or non-military life, and I hope my research makes things better. My work requires me to write all of the time.
Since I have been working for so many years, I have been able to master skills such as using Microsoft and Excel. Both applications are used quite often in the work I do: in preparing proposals, analyzing data, and writing articles discussing research findings. I have a master's degree in social science, and a doctoral degree in health administration. I believe learning should be painless, and as a tutor, I create a learning experience that gives you the best value for your time and resources. I believe in explaining concepts and working with the student until he or she feels comfortable using the functions in Word or Excel. One little known fact with Microsoft programs--there is always more than one way to accomplish a task. As your tutor, I help you find those ways to become proficient.
As your tutor, I think it is important for you to know that I know you have things to do, and it is my purpose to make sure you spend only the time it takes for you to master a function in Excel, or learn a way to fully justify your document in Word.
I hope what you have read interests you, and I look forward to working with you to reach your goals.
