I have 4 years of experience working as an Employability Teacher and Career Counselor. It is my belief that junior high and high school students do not receive nearly enough instruction or guidance in Career Exploration or Career Development or the job search in general, and I am passionate about helping people of all ages successfully walk down the career path that is best for them. Some of the topics with which I can help include:
-Interest Assessments and Job Matching
-Labor Market Information Research (potential pay, projected openings, job duties,
required schooling/training/experience, etc.)
-Information regarding helpful career/job-search-related programs
-Using various job search methods and current BEST methods
-Provision of job leads
-Resume Writing (including use of transferable skills, keywords and qualifications
-Cover Letter and Thank You Letter Writing
-Tips and Tricks
-7 phases of an interview
-Sample interview questions
My degree is in English Education, and I have 1 year of experience teaching in the secondary English classroom as well as 8 years of experience as a teacher for county/district homebound students and as a substitute teacher. I can provide effective tutoring in any area of English/Language Arts.
I have scored the SAT essay every year since March of 2005. I maintained a high validity rating, achieved incentives and was often asked to give a third opinion on essays that were difficult to score. I would like to switch my focus from Essay Evaluation to Essay Preparation. I have scored essays for other tests, and tutoring sessions will help you to score well on your essay because you will know exactly what is expected of you.
I have 9 credits from Grand Canyon University's Master of Special Education program.
