Hello everyone,

I hope I can tutor for you, help you edit work, help you prepare presentations, prepare for tests, or whatever else you may need. I am very happy to work with people at all levels and I enjoy sharing interests and experiences.

I'm from the Midwestern U.S., but have lived abroad for the last fourteen years. I first studied abroad in Germany and have since traveled through and lived in Asia. I received my B.A. in International Studies in 2007, my M.B.A. in 2010, and was in a PhD in management program for eight-and-a-half years after that. My specialization was finance, but I focused mostly on cultural dimensions from researchers such as Geert Hofstede, Michael Minkov, and Michael Bond as they related to finance. I took on finance as a challenge and as a subject that would help with future employment opportunities and tied it in, as much as possible, with my interest in international studies. I was already fluent in German when I began my M.B.A. and PhD. I took a year of intensive coursework to learn the Chinese language while doing my M.B.A. I also speak French and used it, along with German in my readings for my PhD. but I am still trying to improve it.

I love to do German to English translation and can also do English to German translations, but you would probably be better matched with an educated German native speaker as translating into one's own native language is always far easier than translating into a target language.
I also love to do copy editing. I have spent much of the last dozen years writing and I have helped many people edit texts and prepare for presentations.

I also received an A in Managerial Economics in Spring of 2009. My PhD studies have involved years of analyzing, comparing, and contrasting constructs, measures, and models. They have also instilled in me a much greater respect for the merits of practicality, abstraction, holism, deduction and empiricism.

I began tutoring English part-time in 2004. I receiv

I have an M.B.A. and I was completing a specialization in finance before I decided to begin a PhD. My PhD. studies were also in management--with a specialization in finance, but I focused primarily on how cultural dimensions, such as those of Hofstede, Minkov, and Bond, might relate to finance. My Bachelor of Arts was in International Studies, but I took economics, business, finance, business law, and accounting courses to fulfill various requirements for my degree and out of personal interest. I have also tutored, Business English for several years and have tutored students, albeit not regularly, in various management courses.
Macroeconomics,

Macroeconomics

I received an A in Macroeconomic analysis while I was doing my M.B.A. I also took macroeconomics as an undergraduate student. Furthermore, Macroeconomics related to my doctoral studies in management and my undergraduate major in international studies.
Marketing,

Marketing

I have studied cultural dimensions, which have been applied to marketing by Marieke de Mooij and others, for many years. I have written papers on them. I also have also taken a graduate level marketing class. I have also used many behavioral economics and behavioral finance articles. These disciplines often draw on concepts from marketing. My studies have been interdisciplinary and have introduced me to many sociological, psychological, and organizational concepts that may be applied to marketing. I regularly read German and French articles and have lived abroad for 14 years--most of this time in Asia. This has helped me with understanding cultural differences that are important to marketing. I've also engaged in multiple cultural exchange programs.
Public Speaking

Public Speaking

One of my main goals as someone who has taught English as a second language for several years was to prepare people to give presentations. Business people and lecturers wishing to attend conferences internationally-or who wished to speak with international audiences-needed this help. I also helped people edit the presentations there were to give. Another goal was to help people overcome the fear of public speaking. Beyond this, self introductions are a standard part of ESL curricula.

German,

German

I studied in Germany for the last year of my undergraduate degree and I had taken five or six German courses before that. In Germany, I took four months of intensive coursework in German and also a German civilization course in German. I then studied German by myself. I read a short novel several times over immediately after graduating and I used a great number of German scholarly journal articles in my PhD. studies. My vocabulary is much higher than most people would expect from a non-native speaker and I probably know a lot of jargon from different fields of research that the average German speaker may not know. That said, I read and listen far more than I write and speak, so I have not had the opportunity to be corrected as much as native speakers of German and long-term residents of Germanophone countries have had. As a result, I may be able to help a lot with difficult texts, but I would be less helpful with areas such as talking about one's house or making small talk.
Grammar,

Grammar

My PhD. studies were writing intensive. I also submitted many papers for my M.B.A. studies. I have written using M.L.A. and A.P.A. writing styles and my writing, while mostly critiqued for content, was subject to broad criticism from my professors, my mentor, and my fellow grad students. I also critiqued the work of my fellow grad students and wrote annotated bibliographies and literature reviews in which I critiqued the writing of researchers.

Reading

Writing annotated bibliographies and literature reviews was a regular part of my PhD. studies. As an interdisciplinarian, I had to pay careful attention to researchers abstracts, introductions, their writing about limitations, their discussions, and their suggestions for future research in order to contextualize the more arcane sections in the body of scholarly journal articles. Learning to pay special attention to word choice and the omission of words allowed me to make sense of articles that used jargon, knowledge, and research methods I was not familiar with.
Vocabulary,

Vocabulary

My PhD. , M.B.A., and International studies were all very interdisciplinary, so I had to familiarize myself with jargon from many disciplines. I look up the etymology of words in dictionaries. I have spent a lot of time learning German and, to a lesser extent, French and Chinese, so I have become familiar with English vocabulary that originated in this languages. I also studied in professional pilot program for a year-and-a-half and have continued to try to improve my knowledge of vocabulary related to aviation.

I have had about eleven years of graduate-level studies in which I had to read graduate level texts, scholarly literature, and the writing of my fellow students/colleagues as well as my professors and my mentor. I've read texts carefully while conducting thematic analyses. I also changed majors several times as an undergrad before settling on international studies, which is an interdisciplinary major, so I have become familiar with a very broad range of scholarly and discipline specific jargon. I have also tutored English off and on since 2004 and taught English as a Second Language part time between 2014 and 2018. Although much of my attention was on spoken language, reading was also a necessary focus as students would be tested for their reading ability when they took TOEFL or IELTS tests and, potentially, SAT, ACT, or GRE exams.

I am also happy to help people prepare for writing portions of tests, such as the SAT, IELTS, and TOEFL My Ph.D. studies were writing intensive. Writing papers of dozens or more than one hundred pages requires a lot of organization in order to remain coherent and understandable, to not become repetitive, to convey the significance of one's work, and to keep a reader's attention. I had to try to understand or develop complex concepts and then explain those concepts in ways that people who were not knowledgeable about the subject matter could understand. My years studying foreign language have also increased my appreciation for the diversity of ways in which people may express themselves.

Geography

My undergraduate major was international studies. I lived in Germany for a year and I have lived across Asia since 2007. Altogether, I have been to 29 countries (as well as 47 U.S. states) and have spent weeks or months in more than half of them. I regularly read in German and semi-regularly in French and I took a year of intensive Chinese courses in China. I've lived on mountains, besides beaches and lakes, in forests, in suburbs, major cities, and in small towns.
Religion,

Religion

My parents ensured that I took many years of religion courses growing up. Those courses were from a Christian perspective. Since 2007, I have lived in East, Southeast, and South Asia and have picked up some familiarity with Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Islam, Hinduism, etc. I have done this through having friendships with people from these religions, visiting temples and mosques, and asking questions. I'm not a scholar in this discipline, but I have read the bible in its entirety at least seven times. I have read the Analects of Confucius twice, the Tao te Ching several times, the Gita once, and I have read several other texts. I'm neither a specialist, nor a missionary, but I do have a fairly strong knowledge of Christian beliefs, arguments, and doctrines and I also have many years studying cultural dimensions and travelling that help me to compare and contrast beliefs.
Sociology,

Sociology

In my undergrad international studies major, I took sociology as well as the courses in higher and lower levels of analysis--psychology and anthropology. In my M.B.A. classes in organizational behavior, business, and marketing, I studied material that overlapped with sociology. In my PhD. studies, my research classes and my researched interests overlapped with topics in sociology. I have gained a relatively deep and broad exposure to the social sciences. I'm not a specialist in sociology, but if I have not been exposed to a particular construct, I've probably studied a related construct and would pick it up fairly rapidly.
