I have helped students improve academic performance by providing tutoring services since 1990. During this time I have been fortunate to work with high school, college, and graduate level students. Many of the students I worked with at the high school level were ultimately accepted at top universities.
With experience as a newspaper writer, my core skills at reading comprehension and writing have proven to be an asset for those I have tutored. The importance of writing in a clear, easily understood fashion cannot be overstated. It is a valuable tool that leads to success in school and after.
I have worked with a number of graduate students who discovered technical skills are not enough, and older, employed students, who came to the same conclusion. Wherever you are at the moment, if you recognize the need for improvement in reading comprehension and writing, I feel certain I can be of help.
I have a BS degree in journalism, and an MBA, both from the University of Southern California.
I believe I am a good tutor because of a genuine interest in my students and a willingness to listen to their concerns. Experience has shown that learning requires self-confidence. Many of the students I have taught lacked a belief in their own basic intelligence. To a person, they were wrong. While the details of our sessions may fade, I believe the confidence they acquired will stay with them forever.

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.
I have been a web designer since 2009, creating magazine, blog, and ecommerce websites. I am familiar with the functionality of numerous plugins, including Woo Commerce. While I typically prefer to code my work, I have worked with many page-builder plugins and platforms, including Visual Editor (Wordpress). I know, and perform, server and FTP functions. While lately I've been doing mostly Wordpress, I have much experience with Adobe Creative Suite, primarily Dreamweaver.
