I am an experienced senior professional with years in the financial services business. I have a BS in chemistry, an MS in physical chemistry and an MBA. I am an excellent speaker and writer of the English language and have tutored in ESL at all levels. I am skilled in computers and a variety of programs, such as Microsoft Word, Excel and Power Point. I am also an amateur musician and am knowledgeable about software sequencers and making recordings, including live recordings. I have taught courses in sailing, weather and celestial navigation. Because of this varied background, I use mathematics and science in my everyday life. In teaching, I can link what appears to be abstract and boring to everyday events and make the subject interesting. I also relate events in my own experience that can make a subject come alive. I currently work in real estate sales where the daily and positive interaction with other people is pleasurable and gratifying if not always financially rewarding.
I have an MBA and have spent my entire career in business, principally in sales, operations, and finance. I had my own company operating as a financial intermediary and adviser to management in private equity financing and merger and acquisition transactions. I continue to source such transactions. I have served on several boards of directors including an oil and gas exploration company listed on the NYSE.
I am certified in English and grammar. Last summer I tutored two Russian boys, ages 12 and 9 in English conversation, reading and grammar.
I am a skilled and proven problem solver and relate to people well. I understand the issues of learning a second language as I have been learning to speak, read and write Italian.
I have tutored others in this subject and also use algebra frequently in my work. I believe that students should understand how the subject has application in real life and is not just a subject that must be learned.
My background in in finance and science with a career in the former and work experience in the latter. I hold an MS degree in physical chemistry and an MBA, both from the University of Virginia.
