Teaching has been at the core of my entire life. I have more than 25 years of formal teaching experience in Business, Math, Science, History and Foreign Languages (French, Spanish, Italian and Japanese).
I am currently a part-time professor at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater and Tulsa Community College in the continuing education department.
I began my teaching career in Tulsa in 1989 then Paris, France in 1993 where I lived and worked in the fashion industry and completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in International Business Management and Marketing with a minor in Mathematics at the American University of Paris.
I also hold several other degrees from various institutions in the US, France, and Italy including a Master's in Business Administration and certifications in the Italian and French language.
I have worked in the classroom in both college and high school settings, for corporate clients, the US military as well as private individuals.
I spent nearly 7 years attaining my degrees in higher education and attended 6 different institutions: Tulsa Community College; University of Tulsa; American University Paris; Ecole Superieur de Mode (Paris); ENSEAD France; Dante Alighieri Scuola (Paris); Lorenzo de' Medici (Florence).
My early college career I was an Engineering major and focused heavily on Chemistry, Physics, Algebra, Geometry and Calculus. This was the reason I attained a minor in Mathematics. I still really love teaching AP Chemistry Prep and High School Math classes such as Algebra, Algebra 2 and Geometry.
Much of my teaching career has focused on Foreign Language Instruction. I speak more than 7 languages and a little in about 4-5 more: English; French; Spanish; Italian; Japanese; Arabic; German; as well as a little Portuguese, Russian, Albanian, Czech, Dutch and Papimento, which is spoken in the Caribbean. Additionally, for a 5 year span I worked as an interpreter and translator in and out of the French language for corporations and the US military.
I am a world traveler and a Scuba Diver and hold a level of Master Scuba Diver and Dive Master. I travel a lot with my work and for fun. Absorbing new things and experiencing other cultures is a big part of my life, as is history and archaeology.
I have lived and worked in many different countries: US, Canada, France, Italy, UK, and the Caribbean. This has been the main reason for the great many languages that I speak and have lived and worked in.
I hold numerous patents and am a published author. In 2003, I wrote, "The 10 Commandments of Successful Business: the Foundation to Shopper Marketing", which I use in my marketing and management courses that I teach. I also have numerous treatises published on historical subjects and archaeology which is one of my other great passions.
If you can use a very knowledgeable tutor in any of the subjects I teach, email me today. In Foreign Language and Business courses I am one of the best instructors in the country, and not just on WyzAnt. Much of what I teach I developed as my own method that far exceeds the style or curriculum of any school or program. My professional level of teaching is partly due to my two decades experience in teaching and the numerous book projects I have completed to consolidate my knowledge to help teach others what I know.
I offer discounts for younger students. Seeing young minds light up is my passion as a professor. I am here to help you!
