I was born and raised in Kenya East Africa, I was educated through the rigorous British system of education which emphasizes on constant training and repetition to pass on subject matter. I incorporate my unique blend of relevant life experience and lesson reviews to ensure highest level of success for the academic goal. I love sports as a means of relaxation, and play and coach both soccer and rugby.

My approach to tutoring is based on my background in sports, where the talent one possesses can only be applied effectively with the required discipline. That translates to the study session by setting timetables for study that include all aspects of the program to include, theory, practical work as well as time for relaxation. A total approach that includes real life examples has proven effective to impart my lessons. I would not expect a child in Africa who walks to school everyday to relate to the latest in terms of modern fashion. So in my lessons I apply relevant examples to each individual.

I also include constant and frequent testing to evaluate progress, because it is easier to teach a particular topic fully that it would be to try and reteach a whole program. In terms of soccer coaching I find that it is most effective to develop one's strengths. Concentration is applied to the basics like physical fitness and ball control however I also incorporate mental development by building self confidence and crisis management, which builds the perfect athlete.

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.

ASVAB

Armed Services Vocational Battery is a nine part test that is used to determine an individual's skills set. It is widely known that not everyone can be good at everything, so the ASVAB test provides a way to find areas of interest, hence areas of great effectiveness. The test is also a great base through which future assignments and promotions within the ranking services are evaluated.

QuickBooks

QuickBooks accounting software is the most commonly used by small businesses as it provides hassle free one point accounting.

As a sales and marketing manager at Maxter Corporation, I was involved in daily application of QuickBooks for generation of quotations, invoices, packing slip and payroll checks and statements. In addition as Media Director at SDU Africa I am involved in day to day running of the NGO's business duties. That affords me four years and counting of daily QuickBooks use, I am currently using QuickBooks Pro 2011.

My work experience as well as my continued education keep me up to speed on the latest applications of Quickbooks
