Judith’s subjects

Accounting

Debit to the left. Credit to the right. My education is through an MBA. Accounting is all about understanding your income, expense and owner's equity.

Get your pencils sharpened. I'm ready to crunch numbers.

Adobe Flash

Adobe Flash which was formerly Macromedia Flash is, for all practical purposes, a multimedia platform used to add animation, video, and interactivity to web pages or on supported mobile devices. I have used this in the development of my web page. I am definitely comfortable figuring out applications with Adobe Flash.

Anatomy

I am a licensed Dental Hygienist in the State of Ohio. I've taken 4 terms of Human Anatomy and 2 terms of Head and Neck Anatomy and Tooth Morphology. Previously, I taught Human Anatomy at National College primarily to the Medical Assistants.

Biochemistry

Biochemistry, which is also called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes in living organisms. This includes, but is not limited to, living matter.

How this takes me back to the days when I was trying to get into Dental Hygiene School. It is several decades later but I can get you ready to enter Dental Hygiene School or another science-based program.

Business

I earned a Master's in Business Administration from Lake Erie College in Painesville, OH with a 3.87 GPA. I also have Associate Degrees in Business Administration and Marketing. Although a fair portion of my work experience has been on the clinical side of the business, I am extremely well versed on the business end also.

I have taught both Business Administration, Marketing and Office Administration on an academic level for nearly twenty years at a variety of colleges. My student body has consisted of traditional students, non-traditional students, displaced homemakers, and seniors.

Career Development

I teach a Career Development course at Stark State College. This course covers study techniques (how to be successful in college), how to develop a resume, how to dress for an interview, how to be prepared for an interview and the types of questions you should be asking the interviewers about the position? I take the students available to them on the Campus and off of the Campus. We have the students determine how they learn and demonstrate techniques that will enhance your learning experience. I have been teaching this course for the last 3 years.

Computer Science

I've taught application software for the last 30 years in Continuing Education, Academic and Business Formats. My main focus is with a wide variety of software.

Currently I am studying for the CompTIA A+ certification as I am now teaching hardware at the college level. I should have the two tests taken and passed in the near future.

At the successful completion of the A+ exam, I will have both hardware and software as strengths.

Dentistry

I started my career in the dental field as a dental assistant. I worked in this position for 8 years in both Orthodontics and General Dentistry. I then went to school for Dental Hygiene and have practiced in the field since 1975. In 2002 I completed the EFDA program (Expanded Function Dental Assistant) at Case Western Reserve University. I passed the Boards for both Dental Hygiene and EFDA on the first seating.

In addition to being licensed in OH for both hygiene and EFDA, I also hold a current license for dental hygiene in Texas.

I have worked in general practice for most of my career. However, I have worked in Orthodontics, Periodontics, Pedodontics and AEGD (Advanced Education General Dentistry).

Desktop Publishing

I have taught many desktop applications which include PageMaker, Publisher, Word, and PowerPoint along with the WordPerfect Suite. In addition, I am well versed in a wide variety of application software so I am able to utilize text, pictures, tables, graphics, etc from other packages to insert into the desktop application at hand. These are very flexible, creative applications.

DOS

DOS (disk operating system) is the first operating system that I learned. I have been teaching Windows and a wide array of application software for the last 20 years. There are still many times that I am thinking in DOS while clicking in Windows. I still remember the command language.

English

Although my major is not in English, I have utilized these communication skills in every position I have held. My presentation of the company I was employed by was professional both in communications and in actions. I also taught Office Language Skills at Cuyahoga Community College for many years in the Office Administration department.

General Computer

I have taught application software (various packages), Intro to Computers, Keyboarding for approximately 20 years. The application software that I have been responsible for has been both business applications and graphic packages.

My teaching experience has been both on an academic level and also in corporate training. As a result, I am very attuned to teaching courses that start at one level and continue for 16 weeks and also for one-day seminars that cover either a few topics or something specific for that user.

Grammar

I taught Office Language Skills at Cuyahoga Community College for many years in the Office Administration department. In addition, I have been employed in Professional capacities in which correct grammar usage was a direct reflection upon my employer and his business. If you are looking for the subject, verb, adjectives, adverbs, direct and indirect objects; I am your tutor.

Law

In general, laws are rules of being or of conduct. They are established by an authority able to enforce its will. It is a controlling regulation. Commonly, it is the mode or order according to which an agent or a power acts.

The majority of my experience is with Tort Law rather than Criminal Law. A tort basically is a civil wrong. This section of the law deals with situations where a person's behavior has unfairly caused someone else to suffer loss or harm. Although a Tort is not necessarily an illegal act, it causes harm and as a consequence, the law allows anyone who is harmed to recover their loss.

I'm available if you need help.

Marketing

I have a earned Associate Degree in Marketing from Cuyahoga Community College. Since that time, I have gone on to earn an MBA from Lake Erie College with a 3.87 GPA. This program also included the marketing aspects of the business. On a practical side, I have been in charge of the internal marketing program for the business in which I have been employed. In my last position, I double production in my department through the utilization of a well-kept marketing program.

Microbiology

Microbiology was part of the curriculum that I took while in Dental Hygiene school. I aced this course along with the majority of the sciences that I took includes Anatomy & Physiology, Chemistry, etc.

Microsoft Access

Currently I teach Access at Stark State College in Canton, OH and at National College in Willoughby Hills, OH. I have utilized the package for many years now and am quite successful in explaining the concept to the students. I have also done database management through my personal consulting business.

Microsoft Excel

This is my favorite software. Excel allows a non-math person to look like they can manipulate numbers. Actually, all you need to do is be able to follow the logic of the formula and follow the syntax of the statement. I got through an MBA program with a HP Calculator and Excel. I "aced" all of my classes with the exception of economics--I earned a B+ in Micro and Macro. The proof is right here.

Microsoft Outlook

I teach application software for two fairly local colleges--Stark State and National College. Outlook is utilized by the students and faculty at Stark State. I have also had classes where I teach the use of Outlook along with other Microsoft products.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Remember the slide shows that you sat through in a relative's house after they returned from a vacation? PowerPoint makes this all come alive. You can use it for vacation photos, but it has such massive business applications that you can back up a lecture with visual meaning.

2010 includes new animations and slide transitions that make this application "pop". Let me be your guide through this dynamic Microsoft package.

Microsoft Publisher

I used this program to create the Patient Brochure for Case Western Reserve University which included headers/footers, a map, tables, colored theme. It was 16 pages in length and very comprehensive.

I also teach this program in a college level course.

Microsoft Windows

I have evolved through the DOS environment through several versions of Windows. Currently I teach at two Junior Colleges in OH--Stark State College and National College. Windows is part of the curriculum for both Schools. I have also taught Windows at Cuyahoga Community College and at Ursuline College.

Microsoft Word

Word is an ecologically savvy package. It allows you to get everything just right on the screen before you go to the print button.

It offers the ability not only to write correspondence but you can mail merge. You can set up newsletters and tables. You have the ability to insert a host of graphics. It easily sets up term papers. The uses are endless.

My experience coupled with you desire and hard work will have you uses this package to its fullest.

Pharmacology

Pharmacology was also part of my curriculum for the Dental Hygiene department at Cuyahoga Community College. We had to learn the current drugs, their uses, their dosages, what other meds conflicted with them. In a doctor's office, meds are prescribed all the time and all of us had to be up on medications to ensure the patient's health.

Physiology

Anatomy gives you all of the parts of the body and Physiology tells you have they interact and and make the parts work. The human body is made up of integral parts that interact in harmony to keep up alive every day.

I am a licensed Dental Hygienist in the State of Ohio which has provided me with a broad background in human anatomy/physiology. Let's see how the body works together.

Proofreading

I have utilized these communication skills in every position I have held. This includes proofreading. "Spell Check" doesn't find every mistake in a document. It will miss synonyms if they are spelled correctly. It will also miss the incorrect usage of a word provided it is spelled correctly. Proofreading is essential. There are numerous proofreading symbols that allows a proofreader to mark down and the typist to understand in order to correct. Give me a ring and I'll show you how to do it.

Public Speaking

I have always been employed in businesses where "Customer Service" has been paramount for the increased patronage of the business. As a result, I have developed keen skills in communications on one-on-one relationships which work positively for the increased growth of the business. In addition to a formal classroom education on public speaking, I have taken numerous continuing education courses in this area as well.

I have utilized these communication skills for public speaking before groups in a variety of circumstances. I have taught both academically and on a corporate level for nearly twenty years where public speaking skills are essential. Both of these arenas are in the area of education but are widely different. With academic teaching, it is essential that you keep the attention of the classroom over a course of time usually two to four months bringing the subject matter alive and interesting. In corporate training, it is essential that your public speaking skills keep the interest of the student today and work as a marketing tool to bring them back for more one-day sessions.

Through the course of my employment, I have also been responsible for putting together presentations usually utilizing a presentation software and delivering the subject matter to the audience.

Reading

Reading in college bears little or no resemblance to the sort of reading you do for pleasure or for your own edification.

Professors typically assign more than you can possibly read in any normal fashion.

Strategic decisions have to be made about what to read and how to read it. As a student you are reading for particular reasons: background information on important issues, to illuminate central issues in a single session within a course, to raise questions for discussion. On the professorial side, academics feel a real obligation to cover a particular field of knowledge in the course of a semester, and they can't do it all through lectures.

There's an art to extrapulating the information you are looking to gain. I'll help you attain that goal.

Sewing

This is a part of my creative, relaxing side. I have sewn since I was a teenager. I took sewing in my Home Ec classes but really learned most of my skill through my Mother. I also knit, crochet, needlepoint and a wide variety of other hand arts. I have made clothing from scrubs through evening wear. It takes a lot of patience but the satisfaction is incredible from making your own garments and having a wardrobe like no one else.

Study Skills

I have taught approximately 25 years in a variety of disciplines including IT/Engineering, Office Administration, Business Administration (which includes Sales and Marketing), and Periodontal clinical aspects to the Dental Students. Over the years, I have had to coach students in study techniques. In addition, I taught a course at Stark State that addressed just this issue.

Vocabulary

While employed at Cuyahoga Community College (for many years) I taught Office Language Skills. This was part of the Office Administration Department. Part of the course curriculum included vocabulary looking at synonyms, homonyms and antonyms. I've also taught study skills at the college level which will help you retain what you have learned.

Writing

When writing, one should start with an introduction which includes a thesis statement. This statement is indicative of what your main theme is. Following this paragraph is your supportive documentation which crescendos over the pages. The resulting paragraph draws a conclusion based on the supportive documentation and reaffirms the thesis. Need help writing? I'm your tutor.
