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 graduated Auburn University with a BS in Business management which included 55 hours of accounting courses. I have 30+ years experience ranging from Internal Auditor to Manager of General Accounting for a major bank to Chief Accountant of the Holding Company for another major bank. For 13 years, I managed a profitable, retain business including sales, collection of revenue, and financial reporting to owners and government entities.

Adobe Flash

I earned a certificate in Adobe Creative Suites 3 & 4 from an online school (Penn Foster) in 2009. The certificate is for advanced web design and multimedia. Flash and Flash Player were a part of that program.

Bible Studies

I have completed two Bible study programs, each of which when through the entire Bible. I attend Auburn United Methodist Church Sunday school, Bible study and formal church services.

In my free time, I read and study various books on Bible characters, times, and teachings. Although I prefer the NIV Bible, I have studied through other versions.

There are many beliefs and thoughts about the contents of the Bible. I think one has to study the Bible, pray for guidance and listen to their heart for the true Biblical beliefs.

Business

I earned a certificate from Penn Foster in 2008 "WEB DESIGNER" using Dreamweaver 8.
I earned a second certificate from Penn Foster in 2009 using Adobe Creative Suite 3 & 4. This certificate was entitled "advanced web design and multimedia.

I have freelanced web design for some 10 years including many small businesses and Keiser University inSouth Florida.

Clarinet

I played clarinet in the marching and concert bands all through high school. I continue to play for myself and for others as the opportunities arise. I think the clarinet is an important addition to any musical group as well as a solo instrument. I have training on the care of the instrument and reeds.

Desktop Publishing

For 14 years, I served as the researcher/writer/editor/publisher of a monthly newsletter for the Rare Fruit and Vegetable Council of Broward County (Florida). As Director of marketing I was responsible to publish an upscale news magazine directed to sophisticated investment persons. I have studied and used several desktop programs including PageMaker, Publisher, and Adobe programs.

Dreamweaver

Dreamweaver was part of the course I passed in advanced web design at Penn Foster. I earned a certificate with high grades.

General Computer

I have worked with Mac and PC. I am able to install/delete applications and resolve technical problems. I have installed plug & play modules. I am finishing A+Net+ certification.

I managed the Computer Technical Center of Broward Main Public Library (volunteer) where I tutored citizens in computer and software usage.

Graphic Design

I hold a degree in Computer Graphic Design from The Art Institute of Ft Lauderdale. I have worked for 5 years as Director of Marketing at a bank in Ft Lauderdale. This job required me to design, develop and produce ads and advertising campaigns. I used my knowledge in graphic design to do this.

Marketing

For 5 years I worked as the Director of Marketing at Interbanc, a local bank in Ft. Lauderdale. I developed and executed their strategic marketing plan based on a marketing technique where one seeks out groups of profitable clients, then individuals within those groups and actively solicits their business through direct mail, personal calls and special events.

Subsequent to that great learning experience, I set up a corporation including obtaining licenses, hiring staff, writing procedures, training, writing an interactive web site, sales, collecting revenue, presenting special events to promote our products, and producing financial reports for owners and government.

Needlework

I can teach: Counted cross stitch, Crochet including Tunisian and Hairpin Lace, Beading, Knitting, and Weaving.

I have taught many people in all of these skills at no charge. I work in these skills regularly. I belong to The Prayer Shawl Ministry and product 1-2 shawls/month. I sell beaded jewelry on the Internet.

I usually give away my other finished projects.

I also worked for the Ft Lauderdale, FL parks & recreation dept. teaching pottery, both throwing and slab construction.

Project Management

As part of my Business Management degree at Auburn University, I took courses in Project Management.

As Director of Marketing, I was responsible for the completion of a number of projects including the development of all new services. The most demanding was the installation of a 34 unit ATM system.

This included understanding desired outcome, research on requirements to meet that goal, developing a line chart of how each step of the project would be executed (when and by whom), coordinating and gaining support of the various companies required to accomplish the project, training operatives, researching safe and most viewable locations for ATM's to be placed.

I was able to complete this complicated project by following instructions from the Project Management classes which could be used for the successful completion of any project.

Swimming

I have taught classes in learning to swim, water aerobics, and coordinated water dance. I have also been certified in cave diving.

Tax Preparation

I have 30+ years' experience in financial services and managing a retail business. This year I was employed during the tax season by H&R Block and was invited to return next season. The individual needs to save all financial documents during the tax year. As tax laws are subject to change it is extremely important to understand the form one is required to file and maintain documentation of all tax deductions, special circumstances and issues. It is best to begin the tax return process in case of questions. Tax forms and appropriate status range from very simple to very complicated. Professional advice and assistance may be wise.

Web Design

I earned a certificate "Web Designer" in 2008, an "Advanced Web Design & Multimedia" using Adobe Creative Suire 3 & 4 in 2009, and an AS degree in "Graphic Design" from The Art Institute in 1999.

I have freelanced web design for some 10 years including small businesses and Keiser University in South Florida.

Writing

For about 15 years, I have written and published two monthly news magazines for two companies. Also, I wrote an instructional booklet that was published. I have researched and written information on the installation of many new products.
