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 learni

Excel spreadsheet review and formulas

Lorie reviewed basic spreadsheets and how to set them up appropriately. How to create a formula in order to create a table or graph. We discussed the maintenance of my data, and as a nurse that doesn’t use this tool frequently…this is priceless. Lorie is AMAZING!
