A Few Tutor Qualifications
As a teacher, assistant principal, and principal I am a skilled communicator. I took a class in Speech in college and excelled in it.
I teach students in Public Speaking the following 5 key elements:
1. Adjust their communication to meet the needs of their audience;
2. Use an attention getting opener that also provides the audience with the topic to be addressed;
3. Speak clearly so all can hear you;
4. Summarize your main points succinctly;
5. Leave time for questions after your conclusion.
I also recommend multi-modal visual aids, and a time keeper so a talk can be adjusted to fit the allotted time.
I have taught students to use these techniques in grades K - 8, in all their subjects, especially Language Arts, Reading, and Science.
I have my Master's degree in Special Education and have taught in classrooms with ADHD students for 13 years.
For the past 17 years, I have worked as a professional in marketing, advertising, public relations, promotion, and journalism. Marketing is the harnessing of several analytic approaches with a target of consumers in order to grow commerce and business. I have done a lot of band work through marketing; there are several pillars in this topic, not only one.
As a elementary teacher for 25 years, I was obliged to teach Social Studies as part of our core curriculum. For me Social Studies went beyond what we could learn in our textbook. It extended itself into current events, like September 11th, or the birthday of a famous inventor. Whatever was interesting, topical or newsworthy was part of Social Studies for me.
I am an Italian citizen and Poliglot. I spent almost my whole life in Italy. To be able to pay for my University degree, I have been teaching and tutoring students since I was 18 years old. I am fluent in 5 different languages (Italian, Spanish, English, Czech, and Russian). My private clients are very happy when they travel to Italy and can understand the language.
To quote William Wordsworth, (sic) I will enhance your skills in filling your paper with the breathings of your heart.
I hold a BA, MA, and PhD in French Studies. I currently teach French at two area universities and have been tutoring for over 10 years.
I attended and graduated from Bellarmine University with a BA in Music/Vocal Performance. I am currently the lead singer of The Lauren Zoeller Band (a Nashville based blues band) and I am also the lead singer of a touring Rock Opera. I play Gertrude in the opera "G2" by Null Paradox. I have been teaching private vocal lessons for 5 years.
At 40 hours/week, my cumulative programming experience is about 16 years, counting my dissertation and postdoc programming. All of my Java experience was professional. I learned Java while I was a software engineer. Later I helped to maintain a large code base of Java and Java Swing for a very technical apparatus.
I am a photographer myself and have been on for over 8 years. Photography, along with painting, was my focus in college where I obtained a BA in Studio Art. I am well versed in both film and digital photography as well as Photoshop.
