I am from a family of educators, so you could say it's in my blood. In my family, my mother, brother, two aunts, two uncles, and wife are all present or former educators. I have a degree in business education and a teacher's heart. I love teaching, especially when students are willing to learn. I like to teach through student participation and self-discovery as well as repetition. I see myself as a guide or helper rather than a mere dispenser of knowledge. I tutored fraternity/sorority students in business statistics, economics, and accounting in college. I am always learning and constantly reading. I promise to have a high standard of integrity and to provide quality instruction. Also, I will do my best to keep you or your student motivated and provide the real-life importance of the subject or topic being covered.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.

General Computer

I've been around computers since I was in junior high. I have worked as a network administrator (30-35 PCs/Macs, networked printer/copiers) and an IT/software support technician (70-75 PCs, networked printer/copiers). I have the heart of a teacher and am knowledgeable concerning networking, printers, operating systems...just about everything the average user would need assistance with.

Microsoft Excel

I have been using Excel for over 10 years. I have a degree in business education, of which a major part is learning how to use and teach Excel. I have provided software support for over two years in an occupational setting. I can teach any basic feature as well as many advanced ones.

Writing

I am almost through with a 90+ hour master's degree, so I've written plenty of research papers throughout my academic career. I received no lower than an A- on any of these papers.
