Hello! I am a wife and mother of two wonderful girls. I have a Master's of Business Administration with a focus in Information Technology that I obtained in 2010. My undergraduate degree is a business degree where I have a triple major in Business Management, Human Resource Management, and Marketing. My experience with tutoring is the work that I have done with my children as well as with many other children whose parents have come to me for help. I regularly have homework sessions around my kitchen table where I am helping up to seven to eight children ranging from ages five to seventeen and covering all of the subjects. My strength is in English, reports, presentations, studying strategies, and test preparations. I do shy away from anything that has to do with math, unless it's business math. I am proficient with Microsoft Word, Excel, Publisher, PowerPoint, and Project. As for my tutoring methods, I don't just have one. I feel that each student learns in their own individual way and as such, teaching must fit the individual student. I identify, to the best of my ability, what each student's learning style is and help them accordingly. I work hard on ensuring that the student understands what is needing to be learned with the least amount of frustration. I reward all accomplishments, regardless of how great, with positive reinforcement. It is my passion to help others succeed!

ACT English

The ACT English portion of the test is about applying general English practices and rules. To prepare for this section of the test, it is imperative to know one's starting point and to build from there. I believe that with English, it is important to build a strong foundation in order to excel.

ACT Reading

ACT reading is based on reading comprehension. With this in mind, preparing for the ACT reading portion on the test is all about focus and learning to retain the information read. I have the focus and, more importantly, the patience to help those who need the extra help to achieve their goals.

Bible Studies

I attended Catholic school through 12 grade. In school, we were required to study religion daily each and every year. In addition to attending Catholic school, I have attended Protestant churches since birth and been actively involved in the churches I have attended, which have been Presbyterian, Baptist, Foursquare, and Assemblies of God. I have been involved with coaching for the Catholic school one of my daughters attended as well as with a Christian basketball league where Christian fundamentals are taught. I have led a young girls Christian class, a Christian parenting class,and a young married class. I attend church regularly as well as Bible study classes. I have taken courses on many religious practices as well. I study the Bible regularly on my own as well as with my church leaders.

Business

I have a Master's of Business Administration with a focus in Information Technology that I obtained in 2010. My undergraduate degree is a triple major in Business Management, Human Resource Management, and Marketing that I obtained in 2004. Since 2004 I have worked with six different businesses with producing marketing plans, business plans, writing policies and procedures, creating marketing, creating and implementing operational procedures, and increasing overall business productions. Additionally, I have had three businesses of my own that I owned and operated successfully.

Career Development

I have a Master's of Business Administration that I obtained in 2010. Through that process, I gained the knowledge to develop many skills for career advancement. I have had experience with creating cover letters, resumes, interview preparation, and cold calling for employment. For current career development, I have counseled many on how to improve in their current position for advancement and have had great success.

College Counseling

I have a Master's of Business Administration that I obtained in 2010. With my educational experience, I have learned how to navigate through the college process. Additionally, I have helped many that I know decide on college studies, apply for college enrollment, apply for financial aid, figure out how to pay for college outside of grants and scholarships, as well as how to navigate through their college career. Going to school is so much more than attending classes, doing the work, and receiving a very expensive piece of paper. There are many benefits one can receive from attending higher education and it is important to know all of your options for the betterment of your future.

English

I have a Master's in Business Administration. I have quite a bit of experience with English as I was required to have above average knowledge on all aspects of the subject. I am well read and view my only hobby as reading. I enjoy English very much. I currently work with many high school students in all subject matters on a regular basis and enjoy helping them very much.

Grammar

Grammar is so much more than learning when to use who or whom: it is the foundation on which we can express ourselves. What comes out of our mouths and what we put on paper are some of the ways in which others gather information to perceive an individual. I will work on an individualized level with each student in ways that they are able to learn to achieve a strong foundation in order to accomplish the task of expressing themselves properly. Additionally, I will work with the student to help them to understand the areas in which they struggle academically.

Marketing

I have a Master's of Business Administration with a focus in Information Technology that I obtained in 2010. My Bachelor's Degree is a triple major in Marketing, Business Management, and Human Resource Management that I obtained in 2004. Since 2004, I worked with six businesses in creating marketing and business plans, created marketing campaigns, and much more. I have also owned and successfully operated two businesses. Through my education, I have learned about marketing for retail, international businesses, and general marketing. Through my experiences with working with businesses, I have worked in many different industries and have done many different kinds of marketing.

Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint is an important program to know how to use for presentation purposes. This program should be something that one is comfortable using before they enter high school as it is used for beginning presentations. It becomes increasingly important as one progresses through their education and especially once one enters into the workforce. I can assist with teaching the foundational knowledge one needs in order to be able to navigate through this program confidently.

Phonics

I have been working with children on a personal level learning to read for many years. I have the working knowledge of Phonics and have the patience to work with those that need help in this area.

Public Speaking

I have a Master's of Business Administration that I obtained in 2010. Through my education, both in the Master's program as well as the Bachelor's program, I have spent many hours in the public speaking position. Additionally, I have had to give numerous presentations in the work field. I know how to get in front of others and present myself and my material well. I am confident that I can pass these skills on to others.

Reading

I have a Master of Business Administration. I am well read and view my one and only hobby to be reading. I have taught both of my children to read and am currently working with Kindergartners on their reading skills multiple time a week. Reading is only useful when you comprehend what you are reading, so I do make sure that those I work with remember and understand what they are reading. Reading should be as enjoyable as possible because it is one of the most important aspects of learning that there is.

Study Skills

I have spent 17 years in the classroom setting. With having a Master's Degree in Business Administration, I have had to learn many different ways in which to study. Additionally, I have taught my children as well as others study skills that fit their learning style. I know of many techniques for many subjects for many different learning styles. From note taking, to flash cards, to creating songs, to straight memorization, and many more, I can help just about anyone get their study skills to a level of proficiency.
