About Dixie

I have a bachelor degree in secondary education and a master's degree in higher education. As I am phasing out of higher education, I am anxious to work again with middle school and high school students to assist them in studying American history, my major. I have a passion for teaching and education and am anxious to get started in a new role as a tutor! Although I have been In higher education for the last 28 years, I have always worked with middle school and high school students as part of my career. I give motivational talks, bullying presentations and presentations on goal-setting.

Over the years, I have gained much knowledge on resume writing, cover letters, interviewing skills, public speaking, customer service skills and appropriate dress for the workplace. I have given hope and encouragement to many students that were frustrated, discouraged and ready to give up. There is no greater satisfaction than seeing those students walk across the stage at graduation, having achieved academic success. Success goes beyond academics and that is where my other skills described above can make a true difference in how a student can move forward successfully in an education or specialized training beyond high school. Giving students the study skills, encouragement and support they need to succeed academically and socially is a source of pride and satisfaction, as well as a great joy.
