I begin my career with a physical education degree. My first job led me to develop coaching experience in gymnastics, volleyball, cheerleaders and drill team. But I also taught tennis and helped students there. I was told by the students they learned a lot while still having fun. So I really like to teach and help people learn. Then I went back to school and acquired a BA in business and an accounting degree. Accountants were needed and was hired and worked for 9-10 months at an accounting firm at which I became an inactive CPA, expired now. After learning accounting well and working 50-60 hours a week, I took a ten year leave and went to Washington, D.C., for seven months with my family. I set up own college accounting tutoring business and soon was tutoring students at several community colleges in financial and managerial accounting. We eventually returned to Seattle, where I substitute at three schools in physical education, business, financial and managerial accounting. I also worked temporary, at several accounting firms but I enjoyed communicating and helping students learn.
There are many ways to communicate to others, and I want the students to enjoy learning and have fun as they increase their knowledge. I am very patient with the students and just seeing the students improve with understanding taking place is great. If one education method doesn't work, and I see the student isn't learning or is confused, I will certainly try other methods until there is success.
