I began teaching junior high English when I was 21 years old. In 1999, I received my Master's Degree in English to help me advance my career. My classroom experiences have included high school students, community college students, and 4-year college and university students over the 30+ yesrs I have taught. Aside from teaching, I have many years of sales and management experience in the business world, all the way from direct sales to retail sales to wholesale sales. All I ask from my students is their agreement to let me guide them and help them achieve lifelong learning skills. I also have taught courses in study skills and career planning. I prefer not to travel far at night, but I am available during daytime hours most of the time. Teaching has always been my first career choice, so I hope you will contact me if you or your child needs assistance.

Career Development

My teaching experience has included courses in Career planning that featured ways to determine one's aptitude for a particular type of career and ways to find resources in order to plan a good career path. The goal is to help students find a fulfilling career, both financially and personally. I also have worked as an employment counselor and learned many tips on how to interview, prepare a resume, and land a job!!

Marketing

Marketing is one of my favorite subjects: I have taught courses in both community colleges as well as four year universities. My work experience includes over 20 years in direct sales, retail sales, and wholesale sales both as a sales representative as well as a manager.

Public Speaking

I minored in Speech for my undergraduate degree in English; later I earned my M.A. in English. My career has included teaching speech and communication classes in high school and college for many years. During my first teaching years, I coached students in declam, which is also known as oral interpretation. My speech courses consisted of many speech types such as informative, descriptive and persuasive. Not only do I coach students on their speech's content related to organization of ideas but also their delivery including eye contact, gestures, and appearance.
