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.

Marketing

I founded and operate my own boutique marketing agency in Los Angeles that is focused on helping businesses improve their communication online through content strategy, creation, management, analysis, and evaluation.

In the past, I have led marketing efforts and project managed senior sales professionals to help Global Paper Solutions, a multi-million dollar import business, significantly increase annual revenue. Verticals: Printing, Import

I have also led sales and marketing efforts, in partnership with the vice-president of sales, to increase Marubeni Pulp & Paper’s (A subsidiary of the Global Fortune 200 Company, Marubeni) sales volume by 200% in 6 years. MPPN is a multi-million dollar subsidiary of the global trading company, Marubeni. Verticals: Printing, Import

I like teaching and returning to the basics often gives me a fresh insight into my own work.

Public Speaking

I have over 20 years of experience speaking in front of audiences that includes competing in speech and debate in high school and college, professionally presenting to sales teams across the nation, and training groups of educators in New Mexico.

My proudest award in high school included taking 1st in the state in Humorous Interpretation. In college, I competed on scholarship, and was particularly proud of winning a regional competition in After Dinner Speaking. This regional tournament lead to my qualifying for and competing in the college nationals tournament.

Professionally, I have over 6 years of experience presenting to sales teams across the USA and 3 years of experience training educators on best-practices. I also have several years of experience teaching K-12 students in public and private school classrooms.

My current profession as a content marketer and professional copywriter allows me to continuously sharpen my abilities to craft a message.

Finally, I recently completed a 1-year comedy improvisation program in Los Angeles and briefly performed on a house-team to complement my speaking skills.

I feel I am well qualified for helping others develop their public speaking skills and look forward to doing so.

Salsa Dancing

I am a semi-professional Salsa dancer who has competed and performed for 3 years; taught classes, privates, and workshops for more than 5 years; and has been social dancing for almost 14 years.

I consistently train in Salsa and have taken 1.5 years of Afro-Cuban dance classes with an emphasis on Cuban Rumba. Periodically, I train in other dance forms for 4-6 weeks for new ideas and techniques.

My accomplishments include the following Salsa dance performances & competitions:

World Salsa Congress / Los Angeles (2x Pro)
Carnival-Choreographers Ball / Hollywood
Salsa Congress / Las Vegas (Pro)
New Year’s & Summer Extravaganza/Palm Springs
World Salsa Congress / Los Angeles (1x Semi)
3rd Place Sportsman’s Lodge / Los Angeles (Amateur Competition)

Study Skills

I have taught at private and public high schools and tutored professionally for 6 years. For the last 8 years, I have worked as an educational consultant assisting educators, schools and districts in preparing students for college, career and life. I have a master's degree in liberal arts and bachelor's in chemistry. I think through my formal education and professional experiences, I have demonstrated a mastery of applying study skills and teaching them. I would appreciate your approval for this subject.
