As a retired community college dean, I have over 20 years' experience as a college professor and administrator. Currently I teach American History as an adjunct instructor at a community college.

In the past I taught high school history and government.I have a Texas Education Association Social Science Teaching Certificate. During the course of my career I have taught Business Law, Business English, Business Principles, Intro to Computers, Word Processing, Spreadsheets, Government, History and many other subjects. In addition to my education courses, I also have a law degree from the University of Houston.

MOU (Microsoft Office User) certifications in Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint attest to my software abilities. I have taught continuing education courses in all of these subjects at the beginner through expert levels.

I know first hand how frustrating it is to learn something from someone that knows so much about the subject they cannot explain it in plain English. My specialty is making complex subjects easier to understand.

I love teaching and would love to share my passion with you.

Business

My experience includes teaching Business English, Business Math, Business Law, Office Procedures and Resume writing at the community college level. As a part owner in a small business I learned many lessons the hard way. As the Director of Cooperative Education and Experiential Learning at a local community college I learned Business from a different perspective. Let me put my experience to work for you.

Career Development

During my teaching tenure I have taught classes on resume writing, interviewing tips and techniques and job readiness courses. I also operated my own business creating resumes for displaced homemakers wanting to get back into the work force.

College Counseling

My experience includes working at a community college for over 22 years. One of my responsibilities as a college professor was to be available to students to counsel them on classes to take and give them career guidance. Every faculty member had students assigned to her to help those students make informed decisions about their college experience.

As a counselor it was my job to make sure that students were taking the correct classes to fulfill their goals. I also was charged with finding alternatives for students headed to a 4-year university.

English

Business English, grammar, writing skills; these are all areas in which I excel. My experience includes over 20 years teaching at the high school and community college level. In pursuing a law degree I had to make sure that my papers were well written and free of spelling and grammatical errors.

I can help you speak and write English fluently. Contact me to set up an appointment to discuss how I can help you accomplish your goals.

Grammar

Have you ever wondered when to use "less than" and when to use fewer? How about when to put the period inside the quotation mark and when it should be outside the quotation mark? I can answer these and any other grammar mysteries you may have,

(Use fewer when you can count the items and use less when you cannot individually count them. So why does the grocery store have a line for 10 items or less? Because they want to use fewer words and aren't concerned about proper grammar!)

Microsoft Excel

As a retired college professor and administrator, I have 22 years of experience teaching adults. I was also a partner in a small business providing tutoring and software training to companies and individuals, "One on One computer Tutor" in Friendswood TX. I am a Microsoft certified instructor for Excel and have the knowledge to offer basic through advanced lessons.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have been teaching and using Microsoft Office products for 20 years. I am Microsoft certified in Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint. So if you are looking for help with these products, let's get started!

Microsoft Publisher

I have over 20 years experience teaching a variety of subjects including Microsoft products. I have extensively used Publisher to create flyers, newsletters, and advertising brochures for myself, students, and others. I understand the reasons for using Publisher over Word to create documents, and I am also proficient in using all of the graphic and printing features in Publisher.

Microsoft Windows

My experience with the Windows operating system goes back to Windows 95. With each subsequent update of the software up to Windows 7, I have studied the differences and similarities and have taught students how to make the transition to the new operating systems.

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is a powerful word processor that can even do simple spreadsheet calculations, and allows the user to quickly set up documents, letters and envelopes, text with pictures, tables, columns and so much more. As a certified Microsoft instructor I can teach you how to get the most out of this powerful word processing software.

Political Science

Once I received my J.D. degree, I taught government and political science classes at the community college level for several years. I also have a Texas teaching certificate to teach government and political science at the high school level. My experience and my education make me the perfect choice to tutor anyone that needs to know more about political science.

Psychology

My teaching certification includes being certified to teach Psychology at the high school level in Texas. I have more than 18 college credit hours of Psychology and have taught continuing education courses in psychology at the college level.

Social Studies

I have a Social Science Composite certification to teach history, government, psychology, sociology, and geography in grades 6-12. I also have experience teaching at the community college level.

Sociology

Sociology is the study of the fundamental laws of social relations and institutions. I have a Social Science Composite certification to teach history, government, psychology, sociology, and geography in grades 6-12. My undergraduate degree major is in History and Government and I have a minor in Psychology and Sociology. I also have experience teaching at the community college level.

Study Skills

As an instructor at both the high school and college level, I have taught students how to study to take the SAT, ACT, and GED tests.

I also taught a remedial course in college study skills.

Writing

I have many years of experience in both writing essays as a student, and grading essays as an instructor. The best way to learn to write is to practice. Most people make the mistake of trying to write like they speak and that never works very well. I have learned lots of tricks over the years that can improve your writing and I will be glad to share them with you.
