I am a retiree from Shell Oil Company. During my 35 year career, I held a number of positions from Accountant to Fleet Manager to Business Systems Design and Development. With this background and the experience I acquired in class and on the job, I was or became proficient in the Sciences, Math, History, Business Management and Finance, Computer Applications and Industry Regulatory issues (Microsoft, SAP and others) which were supported by a natural talent for speaking and writing.
At any given time, I had one or two individuals for whom I mentored during their first couple of years with Shell. Recently I had the opportunity to assist doctoral candidates at Sam Houston State, by editing their research dissertations in Psychology.
Currently, I am working with Goodwill Industries in to train and support the severely mentally disabled in real work situations.
My methods for tutoring include familiarizing myself with material for which the student is seeking a tutor, learning from the student themselves what the expect and require, engaging the student with the material and ensuring the student masters the material. The exact means for using a particular method will depend on the student's requirements and temperament with a view in turn to their classroom and curriculum requirements.
