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.

Accounting

Financial Accounting.

Business

During my Master in Business Administration I took several courses related to the development of business plans. I can help develop and review all the stages of business plans (e.g. students' project, start-up organizations).

Econometrics

I took Econometrics during my years of college. I can help with the basic level that uses the application of statistical methods to the testing and estimation of economic relationships.

Marketing

I have taught at the university level subjects such as Marketing 101, Marketing I, and Market Research (Marketing II). Also, I took during my Master degree in Business Administration classes such as Marketing Management and International Management. Please read below the descriptions.

Marketing 101 and Marketing I: refer to the marketing fundamentals or principles of marketing that any business or economics student must learn during their college years. Here you learn concepts such as the "5Ps"--Product, Promotion, Price, Place, and Positioning.

Market Research: is a more advanced subject that actually engages in real market research projects for real companies in order to help their management solve a specific marketing problem. More specifically, introduces primary and secondary data collection and analysis as a means to assess consumer behavior and develop effective marketing strategies; incorporates the use of technology in data collection and analysis.

Marketing Management: Marketing concepts of planning, organization, control, and decision making from viewpoint of the business executive. Stress on tools available for analysis and control of marketing activities.

International Marketing: This course provides students with methods for analyzing world markets and their respective consumers and environments, and to equip students with the skills in developing and implementing marketing strategies and decision making in international contexts.

Spanish

Spanish grammar, conversational Spanish.

Study Skills

As a college student I was able to achieve the highest possible Honor a student can receive: Summa Cum Laude. I attribute this achievement to my instinctive time management and study skills, which I can share with other students.

Also, during my Professional Tutor training at East Stroudsburg University, I received information on how to help students achieve their maximum potential in academic environments.

With me, students will learn several researched based strategies in order to improve testĀ­ taking, noteĀ­ making, research, computer, organization, time management and study skills.
