For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

Business

I have a Bachelors degree in Business Management and 16+ years experience in private arena as a defense contractor providing direct support on multiple contracts, program management and senior leadership. I have 10+ years experience as a certified project manager with multiple defense contracting business firms. I am an experienced director of special programs and Senior Vice President at multiple defense contracting firms. I am currently serving as advisor to woman-owned small business and owner/consultant in my own consulting business supporting US Government and military clients. I am a member of several local professional business organizations.

College Counseling

I have personal experience counseling my three children and many of their friends regarding college selection and courses (majors/minors) to select. In addition, I spent one year at their high school as an volunteer adviser to minority students. I also advised them regarding employment options, internship possibilities while they were in college. I also served as an on-campus recruiter for my USG employer at primarily HBCUs and also at majority schools. I managed two college interns providing them coaching and academic advise as well as being their supervisor on the job. I continue to interact with young high school and college students helping them navigate the college selection and application process, and I check in with them while they are in college. I have written letters of recommendation for students in every stage of the development process from applying for college, applying for internships and applying for employment at graduation.
