Hello. I have a wide variety of learning techniques to share with you. I have been a high school business teacher for the past 10 years, and have also taught at the community college level. One-on-one tutoring is my strongest teaching style. My students tell me that I have a knack for breaking down complex concepts into more easily managed steps.

My educational and teaching background is solid, but I also have "real world" experience as a business person. I've done promotional writing, process design and market analysis for a fortune 500 company. In addition, I've helped many colleagues write academic papers for college courses in a wide variety of subjects.

Please contact me to discuss your educational needs. I will not try to teach you something that I do not fully understand myself.

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.

Accounting

I've taught accounting at the high school level for the past 10 years. The curriculum is equivalent to the first two semesters of most college courses in accounting. I've used the on-line aplia software and excel with my students, but prefer paper and pencil for teaching the basics.

Business

I have an M.B.A. from Wayne State University. I taught an Intro to Business class at Oakland Community College. I am currently a high school business teacher. I have 14 years experience as a business professional, including Marketing Manager for a plastics distribution company.

Career Development

Before becoming a business teacher with the Waterford Public Schools, I worked in the district as a Career Development Facilitator. I completed a certificate course at Oakland University to become a Career Development Facilitator. I am also a vocationally certified teacher (Michigan public school system) in Marketing and Business which requires me to teach on-going career development curriculum.

Marketing

I have an M.B.A. from Wayne State University. I worked for 14 years in various positions in Marketing including Marketing Manager, responsible for marketing communications, trade shows, sales support, telemarketing and new product introduction to the market. I am currently a high school marketing and business teacher responsible for our school store.

Microsoft Word

I've been a high school business teacher for the past 10 years, and one of the subjects I teach is Computer Applications, including Microsoft Word. I have also used MS Word professionally as a promotional writer.

Proofreading

I worked as a promotional writer and internal communications writer for over 10 years, and edited several organizational publications. In addition, I have edited many academic papers on a multitude of topics for high school and college students.

Study Skills

I am a certified teacher in the state of Michigan and have been teaching for the past 10 years. I worked for two years in an after school program for students requiring extra help in study skills, and learned many techniques that I now share with my general education students, and have seen excellent results.

Writing

My technique for tutoring writing is to break down the assignment into manageable parts. I put a strong emphasis on topic sentences to get my students going. We can often prepare a detailed outline for a major paper in one session.
