About Milena

I have been a professional educator for over 15 years with a very diverse skill set. I am a lifelong learner which shows in my passion for a variety of diverse subjects: finance, music, and language.

I have taught at the undergraduate level in a private business college as well as through my own business teaching private voice lessons and business coaching skills. I enjoy teaching because I know what it's like to be a student with questions and knowing that I get to be the person who can enlighten a mind by explaining something in a new way or offering information a student didn't know how to find themselves is so rewarding. I am constantly learning something new myself, and I seek information outside of my disciplines in order to have a holistic approach to learning and teaching.

I have an HSK 3 level proficiency in Chinese. I lived in China for about 1 year and worked in a bilingual Mandarin/English Montessori school with ages 18 months through 5 years old. Given my training as a professional vocalist, I have learned how to sing and speak the diction of 10 different languages. Pronunciation and mastering the tones is critical when learning the Mandarin language, so I ensure all beginning students learn to master this aspect.

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.

Business

I hold a Master of Science in Finance from Walsh College of Business and Accountancy. My coursework was directly related to many topics in business: finance, economics, accounting, entrepreneurship, investments. I have also worked professionally at a Fortune 500 company as a registered investment advisor, as well as been self-employed small business owner for over 15 years.

Chinese

I am an HSK 3 Level Mandarin speaker. My strengths are my ability to speak tones correctly, as my background in vocal performance has allowed me to learn the accent and tonality of the Chinese language correctly.

Economics

I served as an assistant teacher for both Macroeconomics 201 and Macroeconomics 202 at Walsh College in Troy, MI.

English

I originally double majored in English and Music during my undergraduate studies, and I was raised by an English teacher who was fond of correcting my grammar, essays, and other written and oral communications for the majority of my life. In short, I grew up with a 24 hour-a-day English tutor, so I have learned some wonderful tricks of the trade!

A majority of my professional work has required me utilize the English language in a variety of forms: business communications, writing research proposals, summaries, press releases, as well as marketing and educational materials.

Personally, I have written extensively as a blogger and write for my own personal enjoyment as well.

Finance

I hold a Master of Science in Finance with Specialization Equivalent in Economics. I have worked in the retail finance sector for one of Barron's Magazine's "Top Broker's in America", as well as been an associate professor and researcher of finance and economics teaching Corporate Financial Management and conducting behavioral finance research.

Public Speaking

I am a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre, and Dance with a degree in vocal performance and comparative literature. In addition to performing as a professional singer and teaching voice lessons privately for over 15 years, I have worked as a voice over actor. I also hold a Master of Science in Finance and have honed my professional speaking and presentation skills as a professor where I gave lectures for 5 years teaching undergraduate finance.

Voice (Music)

I am a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, with a degree in vocal performance. I have been a professional singer and voice teacher for over 15 years maintaining a studio in Southeastern MI. I have served as an alto section leader and soloist in Kirk in the Hills and First Presbyterian Church of Royal Oak Chancel Choirs. I have also worked in voice over in the area locally and online as a freelancer.

Thoroughly knowledgeable and personable

Milena helped me with a finance class that had me scratching my head. After her explanations of the topics, I had a much better grasp of the material.
