Hello! I have a passion for teaching, and I thoroughly enjoy helping students learn a subject. My undergraduate degree is in music education. I taught for a year at a business college, and recently I was a Business Education adjunct instructor at a community college, receiving excellent reviews from both faculty and staff. In 2007 I earned a Masters degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in technology and innovation management. My professional business career spans over 25 years at Fortune 500 companies, during which time I've taken advantage of a number of opportunities to develop curricula and lead classes in various technical subjects.
Most of my tutoring experience has been in Microsoft Excel, helping students at the beginning and intermediate levels of expertise gain more confidence in the use of spreadsheets. I've also tutored in SQL and general computer studies, and am certified to tutor in Word, Access, and HTML. Learning "sinks in" through practical, hands-on experience, and often in tutoring sessions we take the time to practice technical techniques. My tutoring style is informal but each lesson is structured, as we focus on your specific objectives through a mix of direct instruction, answering your questions, and practice time.
My goal is your complete satisfaction in gaining expertise with office technology!
Tutoring is not my day job, so my availability is limited to evenings and weekends. My schedule is generally flexible, but the more lead time before an appointment, the better. If you need to cancel, I ask for a minimum of 2 hours advance notice.
My WyzAnt location is set to Auburn WA in order to extend my geographic reach for students. I live in Thurston County but have worked in Bellevue for many years. To date, the locations for most of my tutoring sessions have been on the Eastside or in South King County. I'm willing to travel to an appointment, so long as the session is at least 30 minutes in duration.
Usually my tutoring appointments are held at a coffee shop that's convenient to the student. If you prefer a different location, alternative arrangements may be possible.
I look forward to hearing from you today, and helping you improve your business technology skills!
