About Erin

Students and clients describe me as enthusiastic, funny, organized, and extremely knowledgeable. When you work with me, you master new skills and have fun doing it! My passion for writing and all things related to business management come shining through in every session.

Because I have been a management consultant, instructor, and business owner for more than 20 years, I view the student/teacher relationship from a coaching perspective. After taking into account your learning style, personality, and voice, I flex my methods to meet your unique needs.

I've applied my degrees in business management and accounting to the efficient and effective management of small businesses and nonprofit organizations for my entire career. A seven-year stint as the editor-in-chief of a publishing house allowed me to perfect my writing and editing skills. I also taught accounting, business management, and nonprofit management at undergraduate and graduate levels for seven years.

I focus on building organizational sustainability through effective written communication, marketing strategy, financial management, and business planning. Students and clients say that I make these topics come alive for them. If you're ready to learn and have some fun doing it, I'd love to work with you!

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.

Business

With 20+ years of experience in all aspects of business management, I bring a well-rounded background and practical approach to the subject. I have worked in my own businesses, others' businesses, and as a business coach. My degrees are in business management and accounting. I've got the theory down, as well as the application. From strategic planning to marketing to human resources to operations and beyond, I've done it all! I can assist with business writing, managing staff, creating streamlined protocols, making sense of financial statements, getting a handle on marketing, or any other aspect of business management.

Financial Accounting

Accounting is the language of business. Once you can read financial statements, you are able to tell a fun and engaging story about that business and how it compares to others. If the math, debits and credits, ratios, or the relationship between the financial statements confuses you, I will make it all clear. You will feel empowered because you can determine how healthy a business or nonprofit organization is and make decisions about it. Do you want to buy the business, invest in it, or possibly work in it? All of these decisions are easier once you learn basic accounting.

You will feel empowered because you can determine how healthy a business or nonprofit organization is and make decisions about it. Do you want to buy the business, invest in it, or possibly work in it? All of these decisions are easier once you learn basic accounting.

Marketing

I have more than 15 years of experience in creating and executing marketing plans, writing and editing marketing copy, overseeing the design of marketing collateral, and using metrics to measure success. I bring a practical approach and a practiced eye to any marketing campaign.

Microsoft Excel

Excel is a flexible tool you can use to track data, perform calculations, and get organized. It's fairly easy to learn the basics, and once you do, you will feel so empowered!

Microsoft Windows

If you need help figuring out how to accomplish a task or troubleshoot in Windows, I’m your gal. I have worked extensively with Windows 98, Windows XP Home and XP Professional, Windows Me, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 Home Premium. I can install and uninstall software and hardware and teach you how to do it yourself with minimal hassle. I can teach you how to safely and effectively wipe your hard drive, as I have done this on a number of different computers with different Windows operating systems. I’ve also worked on Mac OS, so I know how difficult the transition and translation can be for those of you coming from Apple computers. Whatever your Windows issue, let me help ease your pain!

Public Speaking

With 15+ years of public speaking experience in a variety of venues, I’ve got the know-how to help you present with ease, grace, and professional polish. Whether it’s one presentation to your fellow students or a series of speaking engagements with a roomful of strangers, I can get you to the point of feeling confident in your skills and presence.

I’ve taught dozens of workshops, given hundreds of lectures, and spoken extemporaneously on a number of different topics. This means I know where you’ve been, and I will coach you every step of the way on your journey to becoming a great presenter. Public speaking can be nerve-wracking, but with the proper preparation, organization, and practice, you can knock it out of the park!

QuickBooks

QuickBooks makes tracking your business's income and expenses easy. I can teach you the tips and tricks and how to navigate it so that you'll feel like a pro in no time. If you'd rather just know how it works and have someone do the bulk of the data entry, I can do that, too. I've used QuickBooks for my own my clients' businesses for over a decade and love its flexibility.

Writing

For 10 years, I've been writing and editing for business owners in multiple industries and on multiple platforms. From tweets to textbooks, I've done it all. Prior to that, I ran an academic publishing house for seven years. That experience gave me insight into all facets of writing, editing, and publishing.

Erin has been the best tutor I have ever worked with. Granted I have not done this many times but she knows the subject very well and offers advice freely. I hope to be able to use her talents in the future on other courses of study.
