Hello Students: My background has been in Accounting [BSBA] as I worked 4 years as an Accountant for a large corporation and a state university. I also have 27 years' experience as an Financial Auditor for property and casualty insurance companies which I am still doing. I have also worked 6 years in Professional Sales. I am currently working as a Business Analyst I recently obtained my MBA IN 2005 in project management and I became Six Sigma Black Belt Certified in 2008. Six Sigma is a management initiative involving business intelligence, process and quality improvement techniques, statistical analysis, design prototypes, measurement and analysis using graphs and charts. I have been using computers in my work on a daily basis for 20 years.I have set up reading workshops while in the Army assisting soldiers with poor reading comprehension skills with their learning. I also worked in a library while attending college where I would assist people with learning disabilities with reading and writing. I belong to the Great Books Foundation Discussion Group where we have an adult discussion group several times a month discussing the Great Ideas and books of classical authors. When I am not working in business, my favorite activity is reading, writing and internet research. My favorite reading subjects are intellectual history, philosophical inquiry, imaginative literature, business, American classics, poetry and prose, self improvement, lives of great men, public policy, ancient Greek and Roman and modern history, religion, documentaries, economics,psychology, quality control,political science, current events,short stories and mostly non fiction. Even though I have never tutored I have been wanting to begin tutoring for many years and now WyzAnt is giving me an opportunity to obtain valuable experience.
I would like to begin with a one on one tutoring session with the tutee in their home with their parents present if that is applicable. In my tutoring I will be thorough and concise addressing the primary concerns the tutee is having difficulty with in an effective and efficient manner. I look forward to assisting those who are seeking greater learning and knowledge through tutoring.
I have 36 years experience in the business world. I have 2 years as an Accountant for a large corporation and 2 years as an Accountant for a state university. I have 27 years experience as an auditor for property and casualty insurance companies performing audits on small to medium size companies throughout the South, Midwest and the Northeast US. Five of those years I had my own business. I also have 5-6 years experience in Professional Sales selling a variety of different products. I have my Bachelors Degree in Accounting, My MBA in project management and I am Certified as a Six Sigma Black Belt. Six Sigma is a management initiative and methodology many companies are using to reduce variation in their work processes, obtain quality improvement and increased profits through business intelligence. I am constantly reading and doing business research for my own enlightenment.
I think I would be adept at teaching the classics as my favorite source of reading and inquiry is intellectual history and the ancient classics. I have always enjoyed reading these subjects on my own time. I have no direct teaching experience but have taken classes in college while pursuing both my BSBA and MBA. I also buy books for my own reading and I enjoy the classics and making the distinction between the ancients and the moderns, I plan on writing a book or a dissertation on this one subject. With this in mind, I would love to teach and discuss the classic literature as a tutor just for the pure love of the subjects inquiry.
