About Lorie

Hello!

Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and how I might be of assistance to you and/or your child.

To begin, my education is in psychology and anthropology, having attended FSU and USF/St. Petersburg for a dual Bachelor's Degree. I graduated with a BS in Psychology in May, 2013 and I am due to graduate in May 2017 with my BS in Anthropology. I have been contingently accepted to an interdisciplinary Master's Program at USF/Saint Petersburg in psychology, anthropology and education where I will focus implementation of a new school in Pinellas County based on a no grade system of learning.

In additional to my education, I have had an wonderful and rewarding career that began in graphic design and advertising production for the print industry and over time grew to include web design, development and consulting. While a consultant for web and software design and development I also worked as a corporate trainer and volunteer taught web design. I have owned my own web consulting business for over 12 years, and enjoy graphic and web design, web development, working thorough usability, assisting with content writing and overall customer interaction. I have also enjoyed opportunities to train/teach my clients as needed.

Currently I am a tutor with Wyzant as well as a private in home instructor in the Tampa Bay area, working with elementary, middle and high school students in the subjects of biology, English (writing and literature), general science, history math science, history and social studies. Additionally I tutor college students in a variety of subjects that include, but are not limited to, writing, anatomy, biology, database administration, anthropology and psychology as well as corporate employees in database utilization, marketing and Microsoft Office Suite (including Microsoft Visio and Access).

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about how I might help you or your student! I look forward to working with you/your child to enhance the joy and love for learning!

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.

Anthropology

I am a student of Anthropology at USF/St. Petersburg. Anthropology has been a passion of mine since early childhood and has led to a focus in medical, cultural, and business anthropology.

Archaeology

I am a dual degree seeking student at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg (USF/St. Petersburg)in anthropology and psychology, due to graduate in December 2013. I have been accepted to the Masters of Liberal Arts program at the USF/St. Petersburg with a focus in anthropology. My coursework completed to date related to archaeology includes: ANT 2511 Intro Phys Anthropology, ANT 3101 Archaeology, ANT 4163 Mesoamerican, Archaeology, ANT 4524 Human Osteology, ANT 4583 Human Evolution, ANT 4930 ST: Ethnoarchaeology. Additionally I have worked as a volunteer archeologist for the Mission San Diego excavation in San Diego, California.

Business

I have owned my own software/web consulting business for 12 years. Prior, I was a senior consultant for Booz Allen and Hamilton and AnswerThink, working in the roles of Technical Lead and Jr. Project Manager. Additionally, I have extensive knowledge in the print, financial and medical verticals with focus on sales, marketing and technology.

Microsoft Access

I have been working with Microsoft Access for over 15 years, designing in-house corporate customer tracking systems as well as dynamic content for small and midsize companies and non-profits. I am currently designing a MS Access meta-analysis database for personal use during my MA and PhD studies as well as for use among fellow academics at USF/St. Petersburg.

Phonics

I have been an instructor in phonetics education for 8 years, working with students who have various learning modalities. I have been able to work with student's learning styles to adapt phonetics learning to leverage skills that come to the student naturally. Currently I have added to my skill set by implementing the Ortho-Gillingham methodology which I hope to be certified in by the year's end. Lastly, as a degree-seeking student in anthropology and psychology, I have taken coursework in linguistics and have assisted in language-based research that has helped me grasp a better understand of language learning and acquisition.

Proofreading

Over 25 years experience assisting students with proofreading needs. This experience began during my work as a typist for college papers via Kinko's and has grown over the years to include middle school, high school and corporate individuals.

Psychology

I hold a Graduate's Degree in Psychology, and I am working on interdisciplinary PhD in psychology with a focus on education.

Writing

For over 30 years, provided editing and proofreading of papers, books, thesis and dissertations for subjects that include but are not limited to, anthropology, biology, psychology and robotics.
