I spent several decades working in the business and Federal Government realms, producing and editing business, technical and non-technical documents. I was tasked with development and preparation of a tremendous variety of written materials, such as market studies, speeches, and highly-detailed technical documentation. I was also asked to edit documents of some significance, including a document slated for presentation to Congress. In every position I've ever held, I was often asked to edit and proofread my colleagues' documentation, due to my skills and extensive knowledge base in these areas. Although I didn't function specifically as a tutor during my working years, I provided my colleagues with detailed information as a result of my editing and proofreading tasks to assist them in future documentation development. My entire working life encompassed significant writing, editing and proofreading assignments, despite none of my titles or responsibilities specifically including these tasks. Having this knowledge in one's arsenal can prove to be invaluable.
My approach toward tutoring will entail: determining what you would like to achieve through the tutoring process; assessing your needs with respect to your stated objectives; designing a program that will use appropriate materials to teach you the necessary concepts and skills; and working on a one-on-one basis with you to accomplish your goals. We will work together to strengthen and build your skill set, bolster your confidence, and enable you to tackle increasingly complex challenges, whether they be in the classroom or in the business world.
