The opportunity in tutoring to work individually with people to enhance their skills is an extension of my business experience.

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.

English

I have a BA in English and have written papers over the years for work. I have an extensive vocabulary and I find errors in spelling, punctuation and syntax that once corrected create an incredible presentation or paper.

Marketing

I have an MBA with an emphasis in marketing. I worked as a product/marketing specialist and product specialist with Sprint.

Public Speaking

I have been a member of Toastmaster's for 11 years. I have given public speeches to groups throughout the Kansas City area and am scheduled to deliver a speech to the Kiwanis Club in Olathe on May 2. I am working on developing the material to become a motivational speaker and I will gladly share recordings of speeches I have given or meet with staff members to demonstrate my skills in this area.
