My educational background and work experience is broad and diverse in disciplines and subjects. I hold a Master of Science Degree from Springfield College in Emerson Falls, Vermont in Human Services Administration with a focus on Organizational Management and Development. Also, a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida in Psychology/Sociology/Criminal Justice with Spanish as a second language and a Bachelor of Science Degree from Jones College of Business in Jacksonville, Florida in Business Management and Marketing. In addition, I have several years of teaching experience, all subjects in grades k-12, with greatest concentration on grades 6-12. I have done tutoring in mathematics, algebra, trigonometry, English, earth sciences, social studies, American history, remedial reading and remedial mathematics. My teaching style is open and feedback from students and parents is always welcome. Different perspectives and approaches to a subject is necessary to make the subject matter clearly understood, especially in technical subjects like mathematics and algebra. Just as people learn in different ways, a tutor should be flexible, patient, versatile and diverse in approach. This provides a learning environment that is relaxed and focused. Thus, enabling the student to gain the acquired skills, understanding, knowledge and information of the subject at hand. I also have several years experience in the engineering and business management fields, and currently have a home based business. I am available in the Sallisaw, OK area.
In the 1990's I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business and Marketing, (GPA 3.75) from Jones College of Business in Florida. My curriculum included: business law, economics, taxation, accounting, business math, credit and collections, supervision and management, all aspects of operating a business and making it a profitable one.
I have the, " hands on", experience of operating profitable businesses for several years. I operated both a service business and product sales. 1) a contract cleaning of professional offices, and 2) a business that promotes products for personal use. i.e soap and candles. 3) sewing and alterations home based business.
I have had a love of cooking for decades, which has given me a wide variety of cooking experiences. Ethnic cooking, i.e Mexican, Italian, Greek, Armenian, Swedish, Irish, Regional USA, and more. Small and large group meals, everyday to gourmet type dishes. I have striven to add new information, techniques and innovations in my cooking repetoire of skills on an ongoing basis. I love to watch the cooking and baking shows and have added some of the dishes to my menus. For example, stuffed pork and stuffed turkey rolls. I have not taken very many cooking classes, however, I have had the experience of cooking with others, in learning new dishes or recipes.
I have a B.A. Degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology, also, I have done considerable research in all related facets of criminal law, crime in child/adult/family, court system, prison system, police procedures, probation/parole, child abuse, abnormal psychology.
I began basic sewing as a preteen, and had sewing classes in high school, however, most of my sewing has been from experience over several decades. As a young girl I began with constructing clothing for myself, such as: blouses, dresses, and pajamas. Then as a young woman with two daughters and one son, I made clothes for them during their school years. I have also done sewing for party and specialty clothing, i.e wedding, graduation, formal. I have experience with different types of sewing styles and techniques, for example, french sewing. I am something of a perfectionist in my endeavors, I have a home based sewing and alterations business, and I am currently constructing baby and adult quilts and casual wear for women.
