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.

Business

After graduating with a bachelor's degree in economics, I joined a medical device startup as a reporting analyst. My role involved digesting sales data and compiling reports for the executive team. The position exposed me to business operations across several departments, and I developed a comprehensive view of the organization. I had the opportunity to collaborate with marketing, finance and sales to drive the business toward profitability and acquisition. I now work as a consultant, specializing in data analysis and commercialization plans for Bay Area startups.

Computer Programming

I would like to help new students develop their computer programming skills. I am an expert-level programmer with an extensive background in web application development. I have built and sold commercial database applications, and I design and host websites as a freelance developer for various clients. I am fluent in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and SQL. I am also comfortable building and maintaining relational databases to feed real-time data to web applications.

Microsoft Outlook

After graduating with a bachelor's degree in economics, I worked in an office setting for three years. We used Outlook for all e-mail communication and calendar management. I now work as an independent consultant, and although I no longer use Outlook for personal e-mail communication, I retain a high level of proficiency.

Microsoft Windows

After graduating with a bachelor's degree in economics, I joined a medical device startup as a reporting analyst. My position required a high level of familiarity with Microsoft Windows. I now work as an independent consultant, and I continue to depend on Microsoft Windows and Microsoft applications (like Access, Excel, and PowerPoint) to complete my day-to-day work. I would be very comfortable introducing a student to the Windows operating environment.

Piano

I have been playing piano for more than fifteen years. I trained formally, and I have taught in-home lessons professionally. I play in a band actively and am comfortable with all genres and styles.

Study Skills

I would like to work with new students on developing effective study skills. I run my own consulting business and approach all of my projects with a high level of organization and focus. My work is highly technical, and I apply my own study-skills methods to make the most of the self-education required and to manage my time effectively.

Knowledgable, patient, and savy — He helped me with my stats assignment, however, mostly focusing on excel formulas. What I appreciated is he let me try to figure it out first, then he helped then I re-did or explained to him how we did the problem. This way the concept could stick. Will reach out to him again for my next hw assignment. ...
