Bachelors of Science in Education (History)
University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (MBA)
I received my Bachelor's in Education in Social Studies. I received a score in the 97th percentile on my GMAT. The Social Studies major was due to the fact that many of the subjects taken in college were History, Anthropology, Psychology and Sociology. In addition to that, I received my MBA. I had to take many courses in Mathematics and Economics. I would have received a History major if I had not gotten a regular education degree. After I graduated, I moved to Colorado Springs and there I worked on my business degree. I finished my Master's of Business Administration and now I feel I have knowledge of both areas. I have worked for many years in an area where the business degree helped with daily tasks but the prior education aided me in working with my clients.
I have worked in Colorado Springs for many years but my true mission has been to work with younger people (like my two children, who had positive careers in public school and have moved on to college, business for my son and architecture graduate school for my daughter). I have enjoyed watching them develop their understandings and enjoy watching them develop their own lives.
I am able to see difficulties in young people but only use this to help a person develop the strengths they already have. At the same time, finding strengths is one of my own bases for success. I want anyone I work with to use those attributes to forge their own success.
My interests are quite broad but importantly I do not want to be seen as someone closed to understanding anything, and I am a generalist. This allows me to take knowledge from different areas and share it with others. That is my greatest goal, to share the things I know with others.
Perhaps most importantly, I want to help any student solve the problems facing them with any subject I tutor and want to stay on task to make certain every minute is used well for the student. The amount of time needs to make that student more successful in his/her studies.

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 spent two years as an all around player for a club team in my home town (Minneapolis). I wasn't schooled in Lacrosse but I was able to last longer than the other players due to long distance running at the time.
