"Excellent Tutor"

- Connie, Kansas City, MO on 10/14/16
Test Preparation:
Career Development
Language:
ESL/ESOL

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.

Business

I am qualified to tutor business as I have a double Bachelors Degree in Business & Marketing; I've spent 20+ years in corporate environments contributing to training, marketing, sales, product development, distribution & communications. I also possess entrepreneurial experience & coaching.

After uncovering a participant's objectives, I begin with big picture & refine from there.

Career Development

I have facilitated 3-day courses such as "Managing Personal Growth" and "Helping Others Succeed". I've also mentored over 25 individuals in advancing their careers. Helping someone determine what they want to do, then helping them put together a plan to achieve that goal is a strength of mine.

ESL/ESOL

Raised in America's Midwest by a mother who graduated with an English Major and a father who was a high school faculty member, proper English pronunciation was required at all times, including at the kitchen table and socially. Since I also travel frequently, I know the challenge in attempting to communicate where my words are not understood, and can empathize with the frustrations of not being able to get my message across in a new language. I am patient, creative and fun while helping you confidently master the English language. Let’s get you started!

Marketing

I am qualified to tutor Marketing as I've spent over 20 years in business devoting much of my time defining target markets then determining how to connect with them. I've tested direct marketing, e-marketing, specialty advertising & event marketing. I understand benefits & pitfalls of each approach.

Microsoft Excel

I use MS Excel almost daily for everything from budgeting, to comparing cars to buy. I have even used it to keep status on a complicated project. It's a wonderful tool and I can help you use it to cut your work time greatly!

Microsoft Outlook

I use Outlook daily and have for over 15 years. I am able to demonstrate techniques to manage Inbox; schedule appointments for self or with others (in physical location or via MSLync); update Contacts and manage Tasks. I have helped beginners understand the basics and also advanced users with effective techniques for this tool.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I first learned PowerPoint in a 3-day training session. I have been certified to train PowerPoint at my company. I create presentations regularly for a corporate environment. I have learned many of the shortcuts available in PowerPoint to make an elementary presentation visually "pop".

Microsoft Project

I manage all projects via MS Project. Project size ranges from an afternoon meeting to the Super Bowl sponsorship/events. I have used and taught this tool for over 7 years.

Microsoft Windows

I use the entire Microsoft suite of products, so am very adept at MS Windows. I have taught new users how to manage MS Windows, and also helped troubleshoot advanced users.

Public Speaking

I am Triple-C certified to facilitate and certify others (including executive level) in multiple presentation courses; I presented to various size audiences up to 25,000; and I am a 5-year member of Toastmasters International. I am patient and positive, and work on improving skills that will make the biggest impact, thus building confidence, and then we polish the rest until you're as great as you want to be. If desired by student, we can video and critique practice presentations together (the best way to refine presentation skills!).
