University of MO - Rolla (History)
Aspen University (MBA)
Are you looking for a tutor?
For 38 years, I worked in sales and marketing mostly in the field of animal nutrition. Much of what I did was to train others, either people who reported to me, sales people with whom I worked, potential customers of my dealers, and retail dealers. I also gave many public presentations and developed sales and marketing programs.
I received my B. A. degree from the University of Missouri - Rolla, in 1973. As my business responsibilities increased, I saw a need to obtain an advanced degree in business. Approximately 30 years after receiving my B.A., I was awarded an MBA degree from Aspen University.
Retiring in 2010, I volunteered at a Veterans Association Hospital and then began to teach a class in civics, to those people wanting to become U.S. citizens.
I enjoy helping others learn, was a certified trainer for a company called Psychological Associates, and have trained over two hundred sales people in the the fields of nutrition, selling, marketing, and personality defining.
My love for education really developed after I spent four years in the Air Force as I began to realize how little I knew about the world and how important it would be, regardless of my career track, to have a good educational foundation. I pride myself on helping others learn and taking the complex and making it understandable.
If you have a need to learn more about basic math, history, geography or English, I look forward to hearing from you!

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.
I was the marketing director for three companies. In each situation, I had to train all sales (and management) people in how to define a market, how to determine the demographics of the market, and how to successfully sell in that market. The total number of sales people taught approximated 200. I increased sales, up to 40%, in my areas of responsibility, simply by defining marketing opportunities within our grasp, incorporating the SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats), and developing a marketing plan.
In 1975, as a District Manager, I gave speeches to my dealer organization monthly. I had approximately 15 dealers. Each dealer had 2 major meetings scheduled with their clients each year. The number attending ranged from 50 to 100. The largest group I spoke to was 300 4-H members and their parents.
From 1985-1994, I worked as a manager of sales training and special products. I gave four training seminars yearly to new sales people and also instructed the entire sales organization (120 people) in the art of selling, as outlined by Psychological Associates, St. Louis, MO. I was a certified instructor for this program. Each salesman, whenever they wanted a trainer to teach their dealers or dealer customers about special products, would invite me to their areas of responsibility. I traveled throughout the U.S. giving these seminars.
