About Wendy

No promises here of making anyone a genius, but I can help you bring your intelligence out. I am a former private school administrator and current database geek. My life's experience has been helped by effective communications and patience. As a result, I have above average English and Math abilities mixed with extraordinary listening skills and empathy. You can do it; I can help!

All things related to English, with special powers ready to assist those struggling with literature, vocabulary and phonetics! These are areas where I can really "bring it." I am the tutor who will deliver Excel, Access, PowerPoint, Outlook, Project, Word and all things Microsoft right into your capable hands. Yes, I do math: word problems, algebra, pre-calculus. I am able to help from third grade through college-level students, and beyond.

Relax, WE'VE got this ... together.

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.

General Music

I have studied gospel music and oral spiritual traditions, Peruvian, American Indian, West and East African. Composed music in many traditions including Hindu and Buddhist chants, gospel, jazz, R&B and blues. Former pianist (but still excellent note reader) and former violinist.

Microsoft Excel

I have worked as a business analyst in different industries and in the non-profit world for more than 12 years. Therefore, I have skills with Microsoft Excel 2003 - 2010. Let's master formulas, functions and Pivot tables with easygoing exercises and good humor. Yes, it is possible to have something very close to fun with Excel.

SAT Writing

Clear, concise communication is much more of a science than an art. We can work together to reduce bad habits that could lead to errors on the SAT and beyond. This leaves time to encourage effective and expressive grammar. The point of writing is to share!
