Everyone has the desire to excel at what they do. You and/or your child are no different. At times, we all need a little extra help to get us over a particularly difficult hurdle. I offer a kind, patient, grandmotherly approach to tutoring. Most of us have a general idea of what we are trying to accomplish, but need a few suggestions along the way. Others have some basic concepts, but the subject is just too difficult to grasp without that extra help. Whatever level the learner is on, I will tailor the tutoring sessions to their individual needs.
I believe that we are never too young or too old to learn. Most of us only use 10% of our brain and we are capable of so much more.

Academically, I have two MBA’s, one in Business Management and one in Human Resources Management. I am qualified to teach college level and below. I obtained my BBA and both MBA’s from AIU, Atlanta, GA. I graduated with honors, Suma Cum Laude with a 3.95 out of 4.0 (BBA) and 4.0 out of 4.0 (both MBA’s). My final graduation date was May 2006. My Associate of Science degree was obtained from Fort Scott Community College in Fort Scott Kansas. I was on the Dean’s List, listed in Who’s Who, and had a 3.65 GPA out of 4.0.

I have been a business owner both in Kansas and Texas since the late ‘80’s. I have owned and managed restaurants, became a Certified Dietary Manager and managed a few institutional kitchens and staff, as well as catering. My late husband was a saddle maker and we owned and operated a retail saddle and tack business from 1992 until his death in 2000. Around 1995, due to his need for a website, business cards, catalogs and brochures, I bought my first personal computer and desktop publishing software and learned how to design websites and other desktop publishing offerings, and thus started my desktop publishing business. Due to my husband’s website, word of mouth advertising and designing free websites for local charities I soon had a profitable business. At that point, everything I knew about website design and desktop publishing was self-taught. A few years later I took formal classes including HTML, Microsoft Publisher™, Microsoft Front Page™ and others at a local Community College.

Necessity also brought about my bookkeeping skills and qualifications into play. My first PC came with a copy of QuickBooks™. Prior to this I used the ledger method of bookkeeping that was taught to me in the Accounting classes I attended at Cotty College in Nevada, MO. Once the personal computer and my early version of QuickBooks™ became available, I kept our books using that very early version of QuickBooks™, upgrading to the latest version each time one became available. I also managed our payroll and payroll taxes with QuickBooks™. Even before that, I was doing our personal and business income taxes. When QuickBooks™ came into my life, this task became much easier. As part of my desktop publishing business, I offered other business services including bookkeeping, thus keeping books for many local small businesses. In addition to bookkeeping services my desktop publishing business offered catalogs, brochures, business cards and business presentations, all using the software available in the Microsoft Office suite of programs. I have also upgraded these versions of software and stayed current on each. Although I never took the certification testing, I could certainly have done so.

From 1997 to 2008 I served as an officer on the Board of Directors of a Food Bank and Emergency Services agency. During that time I wrote a marketing plan for the agency, instituted a mass mailing campaign to solicit donations, set up a database of current and previous donors to mail solicitations to, chaired the Strategic Planning committee and sat on all of the sub-committees. From 2005 until my resignation in 2008 I was the agency bookkeeper, again using the online version of QuickBooks™. In addition, I used PeopleSoft™ software for payroll and payroll taxes. In addition, from 2005 until 2008, I served as an officer on the Board of Directors of the local American Red Cross. While on that board, I was on the Human Resources committee and dealt with the Policies and Procedures for the agency. I also recorded all donations that came in during Hurricane Katrina and posted funds to be allocated either locally or for the national disaster, depending on the donor’s wishes. This was done with the official American Red Cross bookkeeping system. I also took care of getting deposits ready several times per day. Both boards of director positions were as volunteer, thus unpaid positions. In addition to serving on their boards, I designed their websites for them and attended many formal functions where fund-raising activities were being held.

Between 1997 and 2008 I also assisted a local millionaire who was handicapped. I did his bookkeeping, helped him with his property management business and traveled with him on business trips, assisting him with preparing and presenting various topics to prospective buyers and sellers of property.

After my husband’s death, I married a Texas businessman who moved his business to Kansas. After my mother’s death in 2008, we moved to Texas. I opened my desktop publishing business in Texas. I have continued to remain current on all versions of the MS Office suite of software. In 2009, I was offered a job with a Temp agency and was tested on the Microsoft software and determined to be on the advanced and expert level. I recently upgraded from Microsoft Office 7™ to Microsoft Office 10™ and plan to stay current with each upgrade when it comes available so I can remain current in my knowledge and skills.

Around 2000 I purchased my first Adobe™ suite of products, I believe it was version CS2. Later I upgraded to CS3 and recently to CS5, which is what I currently use. This suite includes Acrobat™, Photoshop™, Dreamweaver™, Fireworks™, and In-design™, to name a few. I believe around 10 programs are included in this suite of programs and I use them all, some more than others, but know each of them well enough to teach others.

Because of ability to learn software quickly, I was a beta tester for several software companies for several years.

My IQ has been tested to be a few points below genius level. I have always known I was intelligent, but do not consider myself overly intelligent, just a person who has a thirst for knowledge and an interest in just about everything creative and technical. I study and read constantly, stopping occasionally to sleep, eat, and take care of other necessary tasks and functions.

I am semi-retired now so I continually look for opportunities to learn. My hobbies include photography, art, writing, reading, sewing, quilting, crochet, needlework, camping, fishing, hiking, gardening, canning, cooking and more, all of which come from my insatiable desire to always be learning. I try to learn something new each day, read at least an hour each day, hone old skills, and attempt to stay current on it all. I require very little sleep, and unless I plan on driving the next day, only sleep as my body forces me to, usually power-napping in short spurts. I am never bored because I like to do everything. The biggest problem with being obsessed with learning is trying to decide what I want to work on next. But I am a list-maker and am very organized so have always been able to accomplish my goals.

Recently, I decided that I wanted to change directions a bit and to teach others again. This is why I decided to tutor. I have always enjoyed teaching. When my children were young, I was a 4-H leader and taught cooking, gardening, canning, leatherworking, animal husbandry, and photography. I was also active in my church and served as the church librarian, youth choir leader, women’s leader (I taught many classes to the women of the church on homemaking subjects and skills), and Sunday school teacher of several different age groups from pre-K through adulthood and the special needs classes.

I believe that my thirst for knowledge is the reason that I love teaching. I have so much inside my head just busting to get out and I am enthusiastic about it. I do not believe that learning has to be dull and boring. I believe on the hands-on approach to learning, as much as possible. Reading and memorizing are necessary of course, but the best and most remembered lessons are those learned by doing, in my opinion. In Kansas, I had several community college students who apprenticed under me. I was asked to teach desktop publishing in a classroom setting, but elected to have one or two students a semester apprentice under me so they could not only be book-smart, but gain hands-on experience.

It is my intention to make your lessons fun. Learning does not ever have to be boring and dull unless that is how you want it. However, if boring is what you want, I am not the tutor for you. My late husband was a Rodeo Clown. Among other things, he taught me how to laugh at life and myself. He taught me how to find humor in almost every situation. I continue to have a great sense of humor and try to incorporate it into everything I do.

Planning is very important though, as is setting achievable goals. I will provide you structure and achievable goals that will be determined by both parties so that at the end of each session, a sense of accomplishment will be felt and progress will be seen. If our tutoring sessions are to continue past one lesson, you will always know in advance what your next lesson will be on so you can prepare ahead. It is my desire for my thirst for knowledge to rub off on you and to give you the life-long pleasure it has given me.

I look forward to a fun, exciting, and rewarding teaching and learning experience for both of us.

Blessings,
Andi

Andrea’s subjects

Accounting

Accounting terrifies some and thrills others. I am a pencil pusher and fall into the latter category. My very earliest memories revolve around the love of math. In junior high school, I was already tutoring other students who were struggling with math. Algebra made perfect sense to me and I got A's in both high school and college algebra. In the Accounting classes I took in College, I also got straight A's. In fact, I guess you could call me a book-worm. I got A's in just about everything, and not always because it was easy, but because I studied hard.

In my life after education, I have put my love and knowledge of accounting to practical use through bookkeeping for myself and other companies, and in my Board of Director memberships.

I will assist you in developing a love and understanding of the world of number crunching. We will start with the very basics, if that is where you are and go as far as you want to go. If you already know the basics and need to get into more advanced accounting, we can do that too. Our first meeting will be via a series of emails, that will not be charged for. Through this series of communications, we will determine where you are and where you need to be.

I look forward to being your accounting tutor.

Andi

Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is a very popular photo editing tool used by many professions. Did you know that photo editing is just the tip of the iceberg with Photoshop? Graphic Design is only limited by your imagination with Adobe Photoshop.

Whether you just want to learn basic photo editing or how to design your own graphics, I have lessons that we will tailor to your needs.

Algebra 1

You will need to master Algebra 1 in order to be able to successfully pass the math portion of SAT, HSPA, PSAT, and COMPASS testing. I have developed an assessment to determine where you current knowledge is and what you still need to work on. If you are struggling with Algebra and need help understanding terms, rules, functions, and quadratic equations, you will benefit from my instruction.

As early as Jr. High School, I was called on to tutor my peers who were struggling with our Pre-Algebra concepts. In High School Algebra and in College Algebra (Algebra 1) I always was quick to understand and grasp the concepts and functions necessary to successfully complete the equations. Perhaps this is why I am still a "number-chruncher" all these years later.

Many people express the same thing where Algebra is concerned. They do not understand why it is necessary and how it will be applied to everyday life to the average person. I can attest, that some 25 - 30 years later, I have used Algebra to solve many problems where all the facts are not known, and not always just with numbers.

In addition to teaching the visible math problem solving techniques, Algebra also teaches us how to be analytical. After you finish your schooling and enter the workforce, being able to analyze an issue that might arise on the job, or in life in general, by breaking it down into steps, will be very helpful. Basic Algebra trains our minds to be able to do this.

I look forward to being your Algebra tutor and working with you to master Algebra 1.

American History

History has always been one of my favorite subjects. I love knowing what happened in our past. "Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it" (George Santayana).

In my younger years, I participated in both Civil War and American Frontier reenactment groups, making my two favorite areas of American History come alive for me.

All areas of American History have something to teach us about life. I have experienced a lot of history in the making. Some of you do not remember a world without cell phones, microwaves, computers and television. The world has and is evolving right in front of our very eyes. It is fascinating to learn about and know about the industrial age and how it has brought us to where we are now and where we are going in the future.

Who says history has to be boring? Let's make it fun and exciting and then it will be easy to learn and to remember.

Business

I have dual MBAs added to my years of business ownership and management. I can teach a wide range of business courses and will divide them up into different topics to fit your need. If ethics is where you need help, I have a class for that. If you need help with statistics, I have a class for that, etc. We can work through the basic levels clear through to the graduate studies. For a complete list of topics in the business field, please email me. Or if you have a specific area of interest or need, let me know and we can work out a plan tailored just for you.

Cooking

Coming from a large family and being the only girl in a large family of boys, cooking has been a part of my life from a very early age. I can remember standing on a chair and cooking for my younger brothers because mom was in the hospital and dad did not know how to cook. I learned to cook from my mother and my grandmother so I guess you can say I started out as an old-fashioned country cook.

My cooking experience evolved as I grew older. As a teen, I cooked in Italian restaurants, then managed them. Later, I cooked in college dorm cafeterias, ran delicatessens, and other institutional kitchens. I learned how to make bread from an elderly Mennonite lady and have become an expert baker because of her.

Later, I was encouraged to go to college and went on to graduate with advanced degrees, with honors, listed in Who's Who, etc. I also was encouraged to go to Dietary Manager School, while doing so, was a Dietitian's Assistant and a Diet Office Manager. I went on to successfully become certified in Dietary Management and managed several Institutional Kitchens.

I went on to teach Nutrition, Cooking, and Budgeting for Kansas State University in their Outreach program for low income families. I also developed a Kids can Cook program where I taught children to love to cook, thereby encouraging healthy eating. It is wonderful to see a child who did not like a particular food previously, devour it just because he cooked it.

Today I write a food blog where I share step-by-step instruction on how to prepare many different food items for many different skill levels. I started the blog so I could teach my granddaughters from afar, but it has evolved to much more.

Oh yes, I left out an important qualification. I owned and operated a very successful Family-Style restaurant where I developed the recipes for it and perfected other time-honored recipes. I also put my baking skills to use by baking and selling bakery items out of my restaurant.

Everyone can learn to cook. Cooking is more than just a means of preparing a meal. It is an art form and a science. I will show you techniques that will make you an expert in no time.

Desktop Publishing

Desktop publishing has evolved over the years since I first started my desktop publishing business; to keep up with this evolution, I have had to evolve with it. I have a whole section in my personal library full of desktop publishing books on a variety of topics from website development to electronic publications, to printed media.

Currently, I am in the process of learning how to develop for Android devices and will be able to add this to my list of topics in the near future.

Finance

$$$ - The whole world revolves around it. Together we will explore the world of finance, how money is made, how large fortunes have been made and lost. Learning how to make money is only a part of the formula for wealth. Making enough to meet your needs is a challenge sometimes, but by investing a small portion of each paycheck while you are young, you will be safeguarding your future. Knowing the formulas for successful investing is key, especially in this economy when the stock market is so volatile.

I will teach you how to use the formulas for success, and I do mean formulas. The financial world is full of formulas for figuring a wide variety of things like "Future Value of Annuities", "Capital Gain", Debt to Equity Ratio", and "Present Market Value", to name just a few of the hundreds. I will teach you the formulas and how to calculate them so you know, and then I will teach you how to use tools like MS Excel to calculate these formulas for you.

General Computer

Practically everyone these days knows how to use a computer. My grandchildren are now teenagers and have known how to use a computer since they were toddlers. As they aged, their abilities also have grown. But knowing how to turn one on and access the Internet and how to use programs is only one part of the equation. What happens when something goes wrong?

I will teach you basic computer skills like how to optimize your computer for the most efficient use of available resources, what to do when your computer gets a virus, how to back up important files so they are not lost in case of a complete system failure, and how to prevent a complete system failure. Although I have formal training in Computing, most of what I know comes from over 30 years of computer experience and my evolution along with the evolution of the PC. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that if it can happen to a computer, I have experienced it and have and know how to deal with it. I will share my knowledge and experience with you.

We will assess where you are in your knowledge and where you want to go, and then build your lesson plan specifically for your needs.

Geography

Many people find Geography hard to grasp because it is just simply something they are not interested in. I will do my best to teach from a fun and interesting point of view so that you will enjoy what you are learning.

Why learn about geography? What is the purpose? Years ago, many people rarely left the county they lived in, let alone the country. Today, however, we live in a very global world. Our own country has a very diverse culture, filled with people who are either working here on temporary work permits, here unofficially, or have migrated here and are now U.S. Citizens. Actually, unless you are Native American Indian, you or your ancestors migrated here from somewhere else. Learning about the geography of the world is very important in a Global society. We share resources through import and export. Knowing where these resources come from and how they are obtained is extremely important for the future of our society as a whole.

In addition; just in my lifetime, countries have been born, died, and restructured. It is important to keep up with world geography from a historical point of view too.

Let's explore the world's geography, past and present. I promise to make it as fun and informative as possible.

HTML

HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is used in just about everything you see on the Internet. It is the basic language used for website design and the behind-the-scenes code. I love writing code because it is a creative process and I love to create.

Today, many software packages write code for you, but when something does not work properly, it is important to know basic coding so you know how to find and fix the problem. This is where I come in. I will assist you in learning basic HTML coding and also teach you where to find resources for more advanced coding, should the need arise.

Microsoft Excel

Spreadsheets are everywhere these days. Most of you know basic MS Excel, but did you know that Excel is more than rows, columns, and cells. Excel can figure complex calculations for you if you know where and how to add the formulas.

Excel is also a wonderful reporting tool. Adding charts, graphics, and even presentations to your spreadsheet will not only present valuable information to your audience, but win points with your boss.

The tabs feature of Excel also allows you to present your information in an organized fashion.

Another very useful tool in Excel in Pivot Tables, pivot tables help to sort and report sums and other data separately from the original spreadsheet they are found on. A Pivot table allows you to "pivot" or reposition information based on what you need to report. For example: if you are the dorm manager and have a list of all the people who reside in your dorm. In addition to their name, you have the dorm fees and meal fees recorded too. The dean has asked for a list of everyone who is not current on their dorm fees. He also wants a list of everyone who does not participate in a meal plan. Taking all of your information, and creating a pivot table, you can easily give him this list any time he asks for it with just a moment’s notice. This is a very simple example of pivot table use. Very complex reports using thousands of rows and columns of information can be made simple with just a few clicks of your mouse button.

The examples I have given are just a small fraction of what can be done with Excel. If you learn no other MS Office program, learn Excel. It is a life saver and you will use it throughout your academic and career life. Knowing how to use it could mean the difference between that big promotion and being passed up, simply because you cannot use all the bells and whistles Excel has to offer.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Microsoft PowerPoint is a very useful and powerful presentation tool. Making a basic presentation is pretty simple with PowerPoint, but turning that basic presentation into an eye-catching, exciting presentation takes a little more education and practice.

Where you are in your knowledge of Microsoft PowerPoint is where we will begin. We can start with the basics if that is where you are, and move clear through everything that is possible with your presentation, including turning your animated presentation into an animated email, or a website. You are only limited by your imagination and your desire.

Microsoft Publisher

Microsoft Publisher was the very first desktop publishing software I ever used back in the mid-90's. I have updated to the latest version each time an update was available, including what I use now; Publisher 10.

Whether you want to design your own business card, greeting cards, flyers, brochures, or want to create a cookbook, illustrations for that novel you are writing, or make money with your creations, it is all possible with Microsoft Publisher.

I have used Microsoft Publisher for decades and consider myself to be an expert when it comes to Publisher. I doubt if there is nothing (within the realms of its capabilities), that I have not done with Publisher. I probably even use it for a few things that it was never intended for, but they work. Let me show you the ins and outs and the tricks associated with Publisher.

We will determine at what level you currently are at. If you have never used Publisher we start with the basics and in no time, you will be designing professional looking documents for your personal or professional use. If you use any of the current MS Office software, you already know the basics so we will progress from where you are at currently, to where you need or want to go, however advanced that might be.

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is a powerful word-processing tool. With the dictionary, thesaurus and graphic tools, you will be able to write your school assignments with a professional flair in short order.

MS Word goes way beyond word-processing, however. With Word, you can edit html code or even create an entire website.

Writing a report becomes a breeze because you can import portions of spreadsheets, graphics, data-bases, and other objects. Adding hyper-links to your document for use on the Internet is easy with the linking tool too. This is just a fraction of what you can do with MS Word.

We will begin where you are and move you forward as far as you need or want to go. This is a fun class and one that will serve you well throughout the remainder of your academic and business career.

Needlework

I started sewing at a very young age, out of desperation and necessity. My mother made my clothes and everyone at school made fun of me because she was outfitting me in the style of her youth, not mine. I started by learning how to hand sew doll clothes when I was around 6 years old, then by the time I was in Jr. High, I was making my clothing. In Home Economics, I was so skilled at sewing, that I assisted the teacher with the class, showing others whose first experience with a needle, thread, and a sewing machine started in that class.

Around this time, my Great-Grandmother took me under her wing and taught me how to quilt. Most of our quilts were hand stitched. Later on, my Grandmother and I made some machine quilts, using her old treadle sewing machine.

Please watch for upcoming pictures and videos of some of my quilting projects and my past county fair winners.

When my children were young, I taught sewing in 4-H for many years. Many blue ribbons came from the projects created in those classes. More importantly, the sense of accomplishment that a student feels when they have created something, then to go further and be rewarded with a ribbon and prize money.

My needle working skills do not stop with quilting and sewing. I also am a very accomplished at knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, and many other crafts that do not fall under the needle work category, but are not listed.

I would be glad to instruct you individually or as a group and offer group discounts.

Prealgebra

Perhaps you are an adult returning to school after a period of time, and need some review prior to taking your higher College Algebra or Math classes.

Perhaps you are preparing for your SAT, ACT, HSPA, PSAT, and COMPASS testing.

Perhaps you are a Jr. High or High School student who is struggling with the transition between using real numbers and solving equations where you must solve for an unknown number.

Perhaps you are having trouble grasping Pre-Algebra concepts leading up to solving Geometry Trigonometry equations.

No matter where you are or what your "Perhaps" is, I am here to help you. I have developed an assessment to determine where you current knowledge is and what you still need to work on. If you are struggling with Algebra and need help understanding terms, rules, functions, and quadratic equations, you will benefit from my instruction.

As early as Jr. High School, I was called on to tutor my peers who were struggling with our Pre-Algebra concepts. In High School Algebra and in College Algebra (Algebra 1) I always was quick to understand and grasp the concepts and functions necessary to successfully complete the equations. Perhaps this is why I am still a "number-chruncher" all these years later.

Many people express the same thing where Algebra is concerned. They do not understand why it is necessary and how it will be applied to everyday life to the average person. I can attest, that some 25 - 30 years later, I have used Algebra to solve many problems where all the facts are not known, and not always just with numbers.

In addition to teaching the visible math problem solving techniques, Algebra also teaches us how to be analytical. After you finish your schooling and enter the workforce, being able to analyze an issue that might arise on the job, or in life in general, by breaking it down into steps, will be very helpful. Basic Algebra trains our minds to be able to do this.

I look forward to being your Algebra tutor and working with you to master Algebra 1.

QuickBooks

Being a business owner, bookkeeping has been a part of my everyday life for decades. I have used various bookkeeping software but my favorite and most used is Quickbooks. I have used and become expert and every version of Quickbooks since its inception. Quickbooks is easy to master and keep up with once you know a few basic tricks. I will have you up to speed on Quickbooks in no time.

Social Studies

Social Studies is the study of how different groups interact with each other and with other social groups. It also defines cultural rules and morel which dictate how that group interacts with members within the group and with members outside of the group.

It is a fascinating study and necessary for our diverse society to get along with each other and thrive as a nation and as a global society.

Houston and the surrounding area is as diverse as a society can get. We are a true melting-pot of culture and lifestyles. Understanding our differences not only makes us a strong citizen of that diverse culture, but lessens the gap of understanding and helps to ease tensions caused when one group of individuals does not understand and tolerate another group. Racial prejudices, gang violence, gay-bashing, hatred of certain religious groups, and many other social issues could be isolated cases instead of the norm.

When we about learn other culture's social mores and beliefs, we then develop and understanding of what we now deem as strange and unusual.

Being raised in an Air Force family, I grew up with and around all types of people and all kinds of social issues. I learned to love our differences and appreciate them, and also to recognize that we all have certain common goals, desires, and wishes for ourselves and our families.

Academically, my early collegiate education included an Associate of Science Degree. I studied all kinds of different social studies including Sociology, Psychology, World History, American History, and Literature, to name a few. As I continued on to my advanced degrees in Business and Human Resources, I continued to study how humans interact with each other. I also am a people watcher. I enjoy watching people interacting with each other and then learning about them, their cultures, and their beliefs.

It is my personal belief that we must understand each other in order to live with each other. In our global society, we no longer can live in a self-created bubble.

It is my desire to help others to also develop a love and a tolerance for all humanity, no matter how alike or different they are from ourselves. As your tutor, I will assist you with your assigned topics and engage you in thoughtful discussions about each social topic you are assigned to learn.

I look forward to being your tutor in the subject of Social Studies.

Study Skills

We all have different learning styles. Some of us are Auditory Learners, that is we retain more of what we hear. Some of us are Visual learners, retaining more of what we see, and some of us are Tactile/Kinesthetic Learners, we learn better by touching or feeling (the hands-on approach. We will begin with an assessment that will identify your learning style. Once we have determined the type of learner that you are, we will identify and develop study skills that will work for you.

What I teach you, possibly would not work for your brother or sister because they might be a totally different type learner than are you. Your study skills will be developed specifically for you and will carry you through the rest of your life. We continue learning our whole life long, and by developing successful study habits early in life, you will find it to be less of a struggle and more of a joy to study and to learn.

Example: I am a Visual Learner. I have 20 or so listed and proven methods to successfully study. Here are a few of them.

When note taking, create drawings or graphic symbols to help me remember and retain what I am hearing.

When trying to remember something, close my eyes and try to visualize either the demonstration or what I write about it in my notes.

Sit in the front of the class so I can see what is being demonstrated and said. Visually interact with the speaker.

Study in a place free of visual distractions.

Use highlighters and colored pens to emphasize important information, so I can visualize when trying to recall the information.

Use flashcards with limited amount of information so I can close my eyes and see the flashcard.

Watch videos about the topics being covered in class. YouTube is great for this.

Visualize the spelling of a new word and commit that picture to memory.

When solving complex math problems, draw a series of boxes with the sequence, or order of operations.

A visual learner very often is artistic and has a photographic memory and these assets can be developed and used for developing successful study habits.

Over the years, I have developed the study skills that work best for me. Once we determine which kind of learner you are, we will begin building study habits that will ensure your success, provided you follow them.

Web Design

I have owned and operated a small desktop publishing company since 1995. I can teach anything from basic HTML coding to many of the sophisticated WYSWYG programs including Adobe, Front Page and Publisher.
