I am experienced in ESL, including reading and conversational speech, study habits, Math, English, and writing. MS Excel, Access, Word, and PowerPoint are also my strengths in tutoring.

I taught at Central Texas College as a MIS instructor. The courses include Microsoft Word, Access, PowerPoint, and Excel. All my students passed the courses and inquired on what upcoming computer courses I would be instructing. Students included military members and their dependents, and local Okinawans.

I graduated with a 3.94 average in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Management. I have over 20 years' experience in budgeting, information systems (including programming and Microsoft Office products), and English grammar and editing.

I enjoy teaching and my technique is hands-on learning.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience in tutoring elementary subjects such as math, geography, history, English, grammar, drilling and pre-testing, as well as report-writing, note taking, public speaking, access, excel, word, basic computer, and study skills. I worked with my sister, who was mentally challenged and had learning differences, for over 10 years. I was considered a mentor from 6th grade, throughout my career, and during my college career. I have a reputation, then and now, for students their grade point averages up significantly.

I have worked in an environment not only in the States but in Okinawa, Japan. A military family had me mentor their two young daughters in elementary math, intro to computers, elementary history, elementary English and elementary geography over a two-year period.

Elementary Math

I have taught elementary math and was an honor student as I was growing up; my background is accounting and I have exceptional experience in Excel Spreadsheets (I use formulas, have knowledge of pivot tables, and used macros).

English

I am an experienced Technical Editor, who is the go-to person for grammar. I receiving high praise for my grammatical and spelling skills when I edit and write my papers for college. In fact, I was always the person who my fellow students would come to in order for them to have their papers critiqued.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked and taught locals in Okinawa, Japan, in Microsoft Word products. I had a local maid, who I taught the American language.

I was a member of a military/civilian organization that encouraged Americans to open their homes to Chinese nationals who visited Okinawa Japan on a monthly basis. Our purpose was to bring them into our home to see how we lived, teach them games, answer any questions about American government, history, current events, and provide them an American meal.

Grammar

As a Technical Editor for one of the companies I worked for, I was exceptional in my position. I corrected grammatical and spelling errors continually. My team depended upon my expertise for a quality deliverable.

Literature

As an avid reader, a student librarian when I was in high school, and previously a volunteer at the local library, I have read a variety of books, poetry, and other materials throughout my lifetime. In addition, I recently received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Management. I have tutored a Portuguese teenager and guided in which books he should read to start his Freshman year in High School.

Microsoft Access

I have worked in Microsoft Access for many years. I have set up and managed many Access databases, used SQL, developed forms, extracted information from Access into Excel, data mined information, etc.

Microsoft Excel

I have used several different spreadsheet programs in the last few years including Excel, Lotus 1-2-3, WIMS 20/20, etc. As a team member when I was a Technical Editor, I was the team member who was selected to proofread the Excel spreadsheets and ensure that they were presentable to the client. As a team member when I was a student at the University of Pheonix, I was elected to proofread and ensure the spreadsheets were correct. I was employed by Altamaha Technical College to teach accountants who worked for the county.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used Microsoft Outlook for over 10 years. There are many internet sites I use to keep up with the changes. I use the tasks to provide for time-management and deadline reminders. I have not only created folders, email, and set the calendar for specific meetings and reminders, but also have instructed others on the techniques of the use of Microsoft Office. I am proficient in using flags, color coding and sorting features to assist in prioritizing incoming emails.

Microsoft PowerPoint

As a student and a team member when I was at the University of Phoenix, I was the team member who was elected to edit all our reports and powerpoint slides.

Microsoft Word

I not only used Word in all my positions in the past few years, but I have also taught Word to Military and local Okinawans. My students continually asked me what courses that I was instructing for the next course period and all of them earned their degrees.

Needlework

I have crocheted, knitted, done counted cross stitch (with a print), and crewel work for over 15 years. I have given all these as presents or have sold them. I have a client who continually asks me to make her family Christmas stockings, afghans, and other household items.

Proofreading

As a Technical Editor for one of the companies I worked for, I was exceptional in my position. I corrected grammatical and spelling errors continually. My team depended upon my expertise for a quality deliverable.

Public Speaking

I have spoke in front of several audiences: at meetings, before board members, in classes, as an instructor and for elections for offices of several organizations that I was running for. The key is to know both your audience and the subject that you are speaking on. I was rated highly when I presented subjects.

Reading

As an avid reader, a student librarian when I was in high school, and currently a volunteer at the local library, I have read a variety of books throughout my lifetime. In addition, I recently received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Management.

Spelling

As a Technical Editor for one of the companies I worked for, I was exceptional in my position. I corrected grammatical and spelling errors continually. My team depended upon my expertise for a quality deliverable.

Study Skills

I have worked with elementary as well as college students to help them grasp the subjects at their level and to give them guidance on how to remember names, dates, and places. Doing this, I have used mini-quizzes and crossword puzzles. It has increased their knowledge from 65% to 92%.

Tax Preparation

I worked for Jackson-Hewitt for over 5 years. My jobs were Tax Preparer, Training Coordinator and Call Center Supervisor. I have done client's taxes in addition to my own taxes. I have taken Jackson-Hewitt's Tax Preparer's courses in the last 5 years. My taxes have never been audited.

TOEFL

I can help a student take the TOEFL test by helping the study process, practice by giving quizzes and tests, and just communication how to gain confidence regarding the test. In addition, I can hase the student remember how to keep stress free during the test and how to concentrate.

Vocabulary

As a Technical Editor for one of the companies I worked for, I was exceptional in my position. I corrected grammatical and spelling errors continually. My team depended upon my expertise for a quality deliverable.

Writing

As a Technical Editor for one of the companies I worked for, I was exceptional in my position. I corrected grammatical and spelling errors continually. My team depended upon my expertise for a quality deliverable. In my other positions, I had to develop Standard Operating Procedures and various regulations. I have published an article on WIMS 20/20 which was published in a technical magazine for the military.

I would love to teach online tutoring in MS Office products if I could. What better way to learn than on the computer. That way the student may be able to learn not only at their own pace, but also at any time of the day or night. Of course, there would be telephone conversations.

My interest started in crocheting not when my mother tried showing me how as I was growing up but when she passed away. At that time, there were about ten boxes of new crochet yarn and thread that I did not know what to do with. As I looked through her yarn and books, I picked up how to make simple things, such as Christmas stockings and afghans. This also helped because the cost of presents... read more

I am impressed by the quality of people who are on www.wyzant.com asking for tutoring help. The majority of them know the subject, but are reluctant to admit that they are good at learning Excel. I was able to help someone who has used Excel for a number of years, but did not know how to start an Excel spreadsheet from scratch. I was able to log onto Amazon.com and find a step-by-step book... read more
