About Ren

I strongly believe that people are different and learn differently, and we need to appreciate and respect those differences. I want to understand my student's problems with the subject matter, and hear your ideas for overcoming them. I also want to know the coursework and/or materials you're working with and try to understand the source of your difficulties -- and what you think the reasons are for those difficulties.

There were subjects in school at which I excelled, but others in which I struggled. More importantly, as it applies to my teaching philosophy, there were some subjects in which I excelled with one teacher, but did miserably with another. It isn't always easy to predict the chemistry that exists between people -- the ways we communicate, understand, and learn -- but I certainly respect the notion that there are "different strokes for different folks" and that a successful student/teacher relationship requires a good match.

As an avid reader and writer, much of my life is comprised of the written word in one form or another. We learn to express ourselves by practicing putting down on paper what we want to say rather than trying to memorize rules of grammar. If we want to communicate more clearly, make ourselves heard more persuasively, we will want to improve our writing AND our grammar in the process. Similarly, if we want to become better readers and improve our comprehension, we need to read about things that interest us and we care about.

If you are looking for help in marketing . . .

I am a highly experienced marketing communications manager, researcher and strategist for a wide variety of products and services, including trade associations and non-profits. My qualitative and quantitative research, including the translation of research results into recommendations for marketing and advertising strategy, brand positioning, message/creative development and communications tactics. I also have an MBA with a concentration in marketing.

I enjoy working with children (I currently work as an elementary school chess coach), and I enjoy working with adults (I previously worked as an adult literacy instructor).

I'd love to hear from you! I'm happy to meet for a free consultation so that we can decide if I'm the right person to help you achieve your goals.

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.

Marketing

I have An MBA with a concentration in marketing from a very good school (The Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University, 1985) and over twenty years of wide-ranging marketing/communications experience, including the development and implementation of numerous strategic programs and campaigns. More specifically, I have extensive experience in marketing strategy, brand positioning, messaging, creative development and the formulation and execution of communications tactics. I also have an exceptionally broad background in planning and marketing research for a broad range of clients. Thanks!
