About Dr. Eugene

My background in tutoring is both professional and volunteer, and both in-person and on-line. As a professional, I have established individual and small group sessions for students having difficulty with concepts and materials in a wide variety of English, business, economics, law, career development, safety and security, and related courses. These sessions have resulted in substantial performance and grade-level improvement. As a volunteer, I was involved with Literacy Volunteers and Companion Animal Owner Education for years. The latter included appearances in grade and high schools, before church and other groups, and at humane societies, where I explained the importance of proper animal care and treatment, and dealing with animal issues. I also handled over four hundred cases of animal abuse, neglect, and cruelty, many of which required owner education, with followup to insure that lessons were learned. I also design and teach community and college courses and seminars, with a focus on critical thinking and content-related issues.

During several decades of both full time and part time college and university teaching and tutoring, I have adhered firmly to certain basic principles: first, the instructor or tutor must perform each and every assigned task professionally, competently, and completely, and should always try to go the extra mile with tutoring responsibilities. Second, course materials pertinent to a particular subject or topic must be presented clearly -- and in terms relevant to student backgrounds and experience, with timely current examples used as illustrations whenever appropriate. Third, performance expectations need to be specified in consultation with those being taught or tutored, so that full agreement can be reached. Often, a needs assessment is the first step in the tutoring process, and we then go on from there.

Further, students and those being tutored must be treated with consideration and respect, and encouraged to do their best work. When actual performance falls below course expectations and requirements, constructive advice and criticism should be provided to improve that performance. Critical thinking skills should be emphasized and developed through coursework, and the instructor or tutor should always strive to awaken and encourage a desire for lifelong learning in each and every student. Motivation is one key to performance enhancement, and thus should be a major goal of tutoring, along with mastery of the material -- these two goals go hand-in-hand.

Although this student made a few grammatical errors in her comment, the positive remarks are very much appreciated and speak for themselves. Thanks, MIr!

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.

Business

My undergraduate college work majored in business administration, with emphasis on management. I also took courses in all major business disciplines, including marketing, public relations, accounting, and finance. In addition, I have owned and operated several small firms, including a community care home in Vermont and, currently, a publishing business. I am also a business consultant, specializing in safety and security matters.

Career Development

Having taught career development courses at several New England schools, such as the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams and at the U.S. Naval Submarine Base in New London, CT, I am well-experienced in the requirements for sound career management and enhancement. Reinforcing this academic background is my own career path, which includes serving as executive director of several major community agencies; selling securities and managing a securities firm for twelve years; working as an emergency manager in New England, specializing in hazard mitigation; and consulting in all of the above areas as well.

Economics

I have tutored students at grade levels from middle school through graduate school in study skills for several decades. Not only is teaching such skills an inherent part of all of my courses -- but now that I have done on-line teaching for three years, I work with individual students who are having problems mastering the material. I would need to know more about the specific situation facing the student in Gainesville, GA in order to determine his exact requirements, so I would start with a needs assessment, a standard practice. If the needs assessment indicates that I can provide the necessary guidance and assistance, I would be happy to work with this student.

English

Among my qualifications to teach English composition, I have proofed and edited all sorts of documents including term papers, reports, books, and dissertations. For ten years, I edited and published an award-winning weekly newspaper, and since then have written and published seven books ranging from poetry to novels to self-help format. My English tutoring includes service for Literary Volunteers for non-native English speakers. I also tutor in English literature and am available on line during the entire year, and in North Georgia from October to May.

Grammar

Among my qualifications to teach English composition, I have proofed and edited all sorts of documents including term papers, reports, books, and dissertations. For ten years, I edited and published an award-winning weekly newspaper, and since then have written and published seven books ranging from poetry to novels to self-help format. My English tutoring includes service for Literary Volunteers for non-native English speakers, and I have taught such students from many nations at Brenau University in Georgia.

Law

As a semi-retired professor of business law among other subjects, as well as heading agencies which submit briefs on legal issues, I have considerable experience with both general law and with legal briefs, which I have submitted to the courts and governmental agencies. I have worked with many international students as a professor, including those for whom English is not a first language. I have also critiqued cases and other materials produced by law students in several related courses, and have provided general tutoring as well,

Marketing

Running several small businesses, I was responsible for all marketing functions, including public relations, direct and indirect sales promotion, fulfillment, planning and related marketing tasks. I have also served as a marketing consultant in New England, developing and critiquing advertising and other materials. In addition, I am a copywriter and author of several relevant works.

Proofreading

As a semi-retired professor and experienced tutor, I have worked with students to improve their writing, spelling, grammar, and usage of English. My previous tutoring ranges from reviewing undergraduate and other reports and term papers to helping students to improve masters level and doctoral level work, in a variety of fields. My background in proofing and editing includes ten years of publishing an award-winning weekly newspaper in Connecticut, as well as improving many public relations projects.
A needs analysis based on a thorough review of the draft of the work would be a vital first step towards making it outstanding!

Public Speaking

My public speaking experience covers a wide range of themes and topics, ranging from business promotion to social and community issues. I have spoken at numerous conferences, workshops and seminars, to groups ranging in size from a dozen to several hundred.

As the author of seven books and many reports, I also speak to groups of writers and authors, presenting my own works and on occasion related works as well. I also speak regularly at such public events as holiday celebrations, civic activities, and on similar occasions, and in addition conduct meetings on numerous topics.

Reading

My English tutoring experience includes service as a literacy volunteer, proofing and editing all sorts of reports, term papers, book, and even doctoral dissertations. I published and edited a weekly newspaper for ten years, and have six published books to my credit, in various genres. My first step with students is to focus on their needs and develop a study plan.
I am also quite conscious of need for affordability when it comes to tutoring.

Social Studies

My experience in social studies covers a wide variety of specific courses and programs. As a community leader, I have served as head of several social agencies ranging from charities to service organizations to civic groups. I have also conducted many training sessions for staff and board members of such agencies, which have been very well received. My focus is on the needs of various population groups, and on the blending of those groups into the American culture -- as well as the problems which often occur over that blending. Living and studying summers in my wife's homeland, Sweden, I am also quite familiar with the European perspective on social studies in a number of countries in Europe.

Study Skills

I have several decades of both full time and part time college and university teaching and tutoring.

As to study skills, all of my teaching and tutoring is aimed at improving students' abilities to learn the material thoroughly, and to retain it, which is equally important. While I would need more specifics to present the manner in which I would approach improving the study skills of the international student who is looking for a tutor, in general I would first do a needs assessment as to his knowledge of both English and the subject matter of his course. I would then work with him or her toward a structured set of lesson plans aimed at enhancing his abilities in the subject matter. With more details of his or her needs, I could be more specific.

Vocabulary

As a native English language speaker and writer, I first developed a fulI vocabulary early in life and used it to pursue various goals including three college and graduate degrees. I also published an award-winning newspaper for ten years in New London, CT, which required me to do all proof-reading and editing. I have written four books of poetry, a novel, a semi-autobiography, and a self-help book on managing your finances. I also work with college and high-school students, focusing on writing techniques, improving grammatical and spelling skills, and critical thinking -- and have received excellent reviews from those whom I have tutored or taught. I am available as needed. During summers, I am available on line; otherwise, I can be available on-line or in-person, in the North Georgia area.

Very patient and knowledgeable teacher

I want to update my review because Dr.E was super nice. His help for me was not over after he sent me back the paper. He emailed back couple times for my questions on the paper, which was super helpful. I email him back at the middle night and he helped me with my paper next morning, I was shocked. If I have any friends who need help with macroeconomic, I will definitely recommend Dr. E to them!
