I am fortunate to be earning my living by doing the work I love!

I am an independent employee training and development consultant. I train in corporate America working with small-medium-large employee groups as well as with individuals. I train on computer skills. I also train on a variety of professional development topics like communication skills, business writing and leadership development. Recently, I have started coaching middle managers looking to move up in their organizations.

I also design training. That is a lot of fun because I get to see my designs come to life when I deliver it to an audience.

In addition, these past few years I have worked with various groups of unemployed individuals needing to improve existing computer skills or learn new ones in order to secure their next job. I train end users on Microsoft operating systems and Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Publisher applications, customizing when required.

Some of the feedback I have received from class participants--"very patient," "excellent communication skills," "able to take complex information and break it down into manageable and easily understood concepts," "easy to work with."

And, if you're looking to reduce the stress in your life, I am also a yoga teacher!

Patient, knowledgeable, and personable tutor.

Ruth is a great tutor. She was very helpful getting me acquainted with some of the software I will be using in my new job. She listened well to my concerns and is very positive and encouraging.

Irv, 2 lessons with Ruth

Great role model.

The short time spent with Ruth gave me the tools to get through my first presentation. I received many compliments. However, I know I need more training. Thanks Ruth.

Great Teacher

I knew nothing about Excel when we first started but she took me through it at a consistent pace and I had a good foundation in no time. Highly recommend.

Andrew, 4 lessons with Ruth

Excellent

Ruth is great to worth with, she is very knowledgeable and communicated very well and is more than willing to go the extra mile.

Gary, 10 lessons with Ruth

Ruth spent the time to help me digest what was being shown to me. She was very patient in her approach.

Ruth explained what I need to understand in Microsoft Excel and is willing to help look at work scenarios, so I can apply what I have learned. Ruth spent the time I required explaining the applications. Ruth continues to be patient and help me understand. Ruth spent every lesson being patient and willing to help use the the time to help me understand how I can use what was being taught to me for my daily job. Ruth always acted very professional and was willing to help me understand.

Scott, 5 lessons with Ruth

Very Helpful and Friendly

Ruth was very helpful. I brought in a short list of what I wanted to focus on and we were able to work through a majority of it during the first session. We each took a couple things away from the session and will be meeting again in two weeks. Very helpful and friendly.
