I am a patient person who likes to get results. You will benefit from my writing and analytical skills that I have acquired during a long career in government and the private sector. Specifically, I have been a manager with significant editing and proofreading skills. My career has been varied, having worked in management consulting, legislative analysis and city government administration. In city government, I honed my writing and editing skills through my tenure with the City of LA, where I wrote/edited reports to the Mayor and City Council in the City Administrative Office and the Dept. of Cultural Affairs. I retired from a director-level position at LAX, where I had I have a high level of trust and responsibility.
My approach to tutoring is to simplify tasks through clarity and directness. I place a great emphasis on phonics as it relates to speech and presentations. I believe it is currently underutilized but pays off in many ways. Further, my approach is Socratic, as I place a premium on the dialog with the student, as well to encourage an exchange through questions and answers. One of the most important tools I bring to this arena is a finely developed sense of professional and fact-based(minimizing hyperbole and conjecture)writing that recognizes the value of logical flow, where one thought leads clearly to another. Another strength I offer is the economy with which I use words, which is a treasured commodity. Finally, I will demonstrate an appreciation for humor while learning, which has proven benefits when deftly applied!
I possess a Master's degree in Public Administration with a specialization in Intergovernmental Management from the University of Southern California, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from San Francisco State University and have a solid educational foundation through my initial 12 years of private schooling.
