About Shirley

I am so very pleased to join this amazing website that allows me to share my talents and experiences with others interested in my fields of expertise. My experiences and talents consist of over a decade of experience working in the business world as a professional Customer Service Representative, Client Relations Specialist, and Medical Biller. I have a Business Degree from Briarcliffe College where I graduated Cum Laude. I have written, directed, and starred in self-written plays, and I have taught children, pre-school to elementary school age, Biblical education. At this time I am a homemaker and I also write content articles for a website. I would love to add tutoring to my repertoire as I love teaching; it's almost as fun as learning.

My teaching method is quite simple and to the point. I first teach the subject at hand from my own perspective, then I like to see where my student is at in their understanding, then we work together to come up with a customized individual plan for the specific student, to come up with the best ways to absorb the given information. Every student learns differently and every student can learn, it's just a matter of how and when.

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.

General Computer

I have experience in the use of computers for over a decade now. I have had the opportunity of attending several computer classes from High School through college, and have used many different software applications during the course of my career. Some of my experience on the computer includes the Microsoft Suite, typing 60 words per minute, internet, email, and social networking. I have extensive experience in research and composition.

During my years working for different companies with different computer software, I have trained my coworkers in the different computer applications necessary to accomplish the company goals. I learned that every person learns differently and that teaching technology is a little different than teaching other subjects, because it takes a lot more hands-on experience in order to get a feel for what is being taught. Patience is key when teaching computer skills and I am just the person to provide this for students who are hesitant about using the computer.

Microsoft Excel

I took the Microsoft Excel course in Briarcliff College and I have over a decade of experience using this specific Microsoft software.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have used Microsoft PowerPoint for many a College presentation. I was also able to utilize this Microsoft software when preparing for meetings while working for a financial company in Hauppauge, NY. I am very well aware of PowerPoint's many capabilities to create a superb report or presentation.

Microsoft Word

I have been using Microsoft Word for over a decade for College papers, business letters, and now my own private business endeavors. I am 100% capable of teaching this software used by me on a daily basis for over ten years now. I have used this software for business letters, flyers, reports, business cards, booklets, and creative writing.

Reading

Reading has been a quintessential part of my life from a very early age. Growing up in a home that forbade television watching during school days, I fell in love with reading at the early age of 5 and I still prefer a good book over television. In my youth I taught my younger brother and sister to read, and I also taught the younger children in my church as well. Now, I have the opportunity to teach my 6 year old, 4 year old, and 2 year old the gift of reading as well.
