About April

Aloha,

I have attained a master's degree in education and business administration. I am also a 20-year Navy veteran. These degrees coupled with my military experience have given me the knowledge, skills, and abilities to assist others in attaining their goals. Currently, I am a certified state of Hawaii reading tutor for Hawaii Literacy. In my career path, I have also held the position of facilitator for PLATO Inc.; the company that held the contract with the federal government to retrain active duty members in their pursuit to re-score on the ASVAB test. I have the experience and the means to get you where you feel you need to be. I have had the opportunity to tutor folks in many topics.

I have had fun during my tutoring career. I have come across different people, cultures, and opportunities in this field. It is always a rewarding experience for me to be able to help someone reach their goals. I have the patience it takes to make people feel at ease. Learning can be stressful and intimidating; generally this is the reason student's are unable to move forward-fear.

My hope is for you to have fun while you are learning what it is that you need assistance with. It makes the process go a lot smoother.

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.

Algebra 1

As an undergraduate student, I took algebra to relearn what I had forgotten in high school. With that knowledge, I began to assist others that needed assistance. Furthermore, I have tutored many students in algebra in my capacity as a facilitator for the ASVAB retraining program.

ASVAB

I was in the military for 20 years. I was a career counselor and a facilitator for PLATO Inc. That is the company that held the government contract for classes that helped active duty personnel learn or relearn the sections on the ASVAB.

Business

I have attained a BA and an MBA from Chaminade University of Honolulu. I have held managerial positions in my earlier career. I am currently a program manager at a major university. I have the skills and abilities to assist with your goals in the business field. If interested, let me know.

Career Development

I was a career counselor in the United States Navy. I assisted people with their career decisions. I informed them of opportunities that were available to them and guided them through the process of standards that needed to be obtained. This was a very rewarding career for me. There is nothing greater than receiving a genuine "Thank You."

College Counseling

As the Director of Academic Support for Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, I often times, had the opportunity to counsel students on a myriad of things. Not only did I assist them with what classes were required for them to take, I also gave them financial aid counseling and knowledge of a wealth of helpful resources that were available to them. This, too, was a very rewarding career field.

English

I consider myself a good writer. You can become a good writier too. It takes practice and confidence. I can assist you with both.

ESL/ESOL

I am TEFL/TESL/TESOL certified by Oxford Seminars. I am currently working with ESL learners, and making progress.

GED

I have trained and tutored many people in many diverse areas. I hold two master's degrees and a wealth of life knowledge. Preparing for the GED is learning a combination of several different subject areas. My background, work experience, interests, and education level well qualifies me to teach this subject.

Grammar

Correct grammar is vital in acquiring job skills. Sometimes this area is intimidating for someone who is ESL or not that confident in their abilities. I can help you overcome that fear. I have had a lot of practice.

Proofreading

In my master's program, I was required to submit many papers for a grade. I began to assist other with proofreading as I asked for their help also. It was essential to have well written papers to pass the program.

Reading

Reading is a necessity. I am a certified Hawaii Literacy Tutor for the state of Hawaii. I have tutored many students with reading concerns.

Spelling

In my career and in my educational endeavours, I was required to know how to spell. There was no way around it. I am a good speller and am able to assist others that need help in this area.

TOEFL

I am a certified ESL/TESOL/TEFL instructor through Oxford Seminars. I am also a host for the ECHS Homestay Program. This program places ESL students in your home on a full-time basis. The student is immersed in the English language and American culture. I am currently tutoring a student from Japan and a student in Vietnam via Skype.

Vocabulary

I was always good at vocabulary. Now I have the chance to pass that along. My career and my educational endeavors have allowed me to strengthen my usage. I have written various documents and papers.

Writing

I have a lot of experience with writing in the educational arena and the career arena. I have two master's degrees which were writing intensive. I enjoy writing about various topics that I have to do research in.
