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.

I have always enjoyed math...and while I don't expect you to love it, I can at least make algebra easier for you!

I tutored algebra at Broward College's Academic Success Center and also one-on-one with students receiving assistance from the Office of Disability Services (ADHD, Aspergers, etc.).

Let me make factoring and finding x less stressful for you!

Algebra 2

I have always enjoyed math...and while I don't expect you to love it, I can at least make algebra easier for you!

I tutored algebra at Broward College's Academic Success Center and also one-on-one with students receiving assistance from the Office of Disability Services (ADHD, Aspergers, etc.).

English

I attended the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee where I tested out of Freshman English because of my mastery of English while in high school. I continued to explore English courses and became an expert writer in my career as a mediator. Mediators are required to draft clear and concise memoranda of understanding. I love the English language and the enjoy sharing this passion with others.

Finance

I addition to my own personal experiences with finances I also took courses in finances and economics as a liberal arts student/graduate at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

With my education, personal background and my ability to incorporate statistics/math I can make finance something you can grasp and do better with.

Let me assist you!

I was active in local, state and federal politics for some years. I served as a delegate to a presidential nominating convention and held party offices. Additionally I have a liberal arts degree from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee with a major in Political Science.

Law

I am a former professional mediator. I worked for 25 years in the field of conflict resolution. I was a court appointed mediator in a wide variety of cases. I have an extensive background including teaching mediation and negotiation courses at several Chicago area law schools.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have worked with PowerPoint for years. In addition to the basics, I can do transitions, animations and other special effects. I tutor college students taking Computer Literacy courses on how to effectively use PowerPoint. I have also created professional presentations using PowerPoint.

I am an extraordinary extemporaneous public speaker. I can deliver a speech from a few notes on an index card, about a subject I know little about, and do so convincingly. Throughout my career I have been called upon to make public presentations about complex issues that needed to be understood. I developed one of the finest mediation training programs in the country which was well received due in part to my highly effective public speaking skills. I have also led numerous train-the-trainer courses, where the most essential skill is effective public speaking.

Reading

My educational background (B.A. from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee) in liberal arts required me to do extensive reading in a wide variety of subject areas.

My professional background as a mediator and arbitrator required being able to read background material which was often highly complex and technical.

I recently completed a statistics course at Broward College with an A. I was immediately hired by the college to tutor statistics not only in the open Academic Success Center but also to do one-on-one statistics tutoring for students receiving assistance from the Office of Disability Services (ADHD, Aspergers, etc.).

Let me make standard distributions and z scores a bit easier for you!

I have completed 20+ marathons, including several ultramarathons; the longest was 50 miles. I have also run numerous other races: 5k,10k, 1/2 marathon etc.

I have the knowledge from first hand experience about what will make you a successful runner!
