About Ruth

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!

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.

Microsoft Outlook

I am hired by corporations to teach participants how to use Outlook with the guidelines designated by their organization. We cover email, calendar, tasks and contacts using materials on the market, customizing as necessary when requested.

Microsoft Publisher

I teach Publisher for adult education programs through community colleges. Typically, we use training manuals and exercises that are on the market but can customize course content if necessary. When necessary, I work one on one with participants either at a class break, before or after class or some other prearranged time.

Microsoft Windows

I am currently working on a corporate roll-out of Windows 7 and Office 2010. Let me help you make the transition from Windows XP and Office 2003!

Public Speaking

I work as a trainer in corporations. All of my work requires excellent communication skills, speaking in front of employee audiences of various backgrounds on a variety of training topics.

Yoga

I am a certified yoga instructor. I have been practicing and teaching yoga for 15+ years. I teach privately as well as in yoga studios. I love the health benefits that yoga brings into my life and look forward to helping you bring those benefits into yours!
