About Dell

I have a degree in English Literature and truly enjoy reading and writing. As such, I also enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. I have taught High School English and felt very rewarded during the times that I motivated students to continue lifelong learning.
I have also tutored GED and literacy to adults and thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of accomplishment achieved upon passing the test and moving forward in other areas of life. Literacy is a big cause for me and I believe that everyone should be able to read. It's the only gift we can give ourselves and we can expand on it for life.
I would enjoy the opportunity to direct and guide you in your growth cycle as well. Whether it be to continue on your path of learning or to rekindle a love for it. I hope to become a part of your life very soon.

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.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel in several jobs I've held and am quite experienced with its use. I hope to assist you soon.

Microsoft Outlook

I currently use MS Outlook 2013 on a regular basis - calendar, contacts and email. Often asked for assistance both personally and professionally, I have used Outlook for more than 10 years and am considered an advance user. For that reason, I am able to assist beginners and mid-level users of the necessities needed to navigate the software interface as well as new techniques to allow ease of interaction among other MS Office applications.

Microsoft Publisher

I am qualified to tutor in this subject because I am an advanced user of Microsoft Office products. I began using MS Publisher in 2007 when creating an office newsletter. I quickly found it to be a user-friendly desktop publishing software package that interfaces with other applications in the MS Office family. Combining graphics and text makes more interesting marketing materials including invitations, flyers, postcards, brochures, newsletters, etc. I have used Publisher extensively in my business as a Media and Marketing Specialist since then. I enjoy using this software and teaching others as much about it as possible.

Microsoft Windows

MS Windows involves navigating the Operating System on the computer in order to efficiently gain access to the software necessary to complete your tasks. As a proficient software user, I am familiar with most MS Windows products, including Windows 10. I can successfully train others on its proper use and function, up to and including personalization that tailors the product to fit individual needs.

Phonics

During training as a tutor for the Literacy Council of Birmingham and the Literacy Volunteers of America (Washington, DC), I received a phonics refresher. The relationship between sounds and spellings helps students sound out words. It’s the beginning of the reading process. I enjoy helping adults students with this very important process and helping them grow into avid, thorough readers. I also have a degree in English Literature.

SAT Reading

I am an English teacher and can assist you with the Reading section of the SAT.

Writing

I have a BS in English Literature and taught HS English for a number of years. I enjoy writing and proofreading and will assist you.
