Hi,let me introduce myself,

I went to school in Illinois at one of the best public schools in the state. After, I decided to take a break from school. However, I found out the hard way that without an education, it is really tough to make it. I went to MacMurray College in Jacksonville, IL where I achieved my B.A. in General Business with honors. My core of study was business related with pre-law classes mixed in. I also loved government and history so I took a number of credits in that area also. I was in advanced math courses dating back to grade school and I'm quite proficient in geography. I am an avid sports fan so to the sports fan I would probably use sports analogies in tutoring. If not a fan, I would avoid them and concentrate on other areas of interest to get the lesson across.

I went directly into the business world where I learned not only the ins and outs of the business world (economics, HR, sales, marketing, advertising, customer relations,etc.)but how the real world interacts. It's a little different than a chapter in a book. I excelled as a manager and went on to own my own successful business for 7 years (90% of all small business' fail in their first 5 years).

After a while I looked deep inside myself and asked myself what I really wanted to do with the rest of my life. My answer to myself was teach, that was my management style and it's the one thing I loved the most about management (that might be why I never had an asst. mgr. who wasn't promoted to manager at some point. I taught well). I loved helping people to better themselves and education is the best way. So, I sold my business and I plan on going back for my masters degree in education. I would like to help others achieve their goals in my quest to do it.

I believe in interactive tutoring/teaching and that there is no such thing as a stupid question. Certain people have certain talents and they just need a mentor in others to better prepare them and help them not to allow failure to creep into the picture. I am the person who will do this in a creative, honest, and lasting way.

I believe my real life experience can bring to the table those things that aren't just by reading a textbook and merely memorizing enough to pass the test and forget the day after. I believe that hands on is the best teacher and that would be the approach I will take. Bring any lesson taught alive and into real world scenarios. That way the student will not only understand the lesson but it will be instilled so that when a life situation arises, the lesson can actually be applied.
