About Martin

I have been teaching marketing, accounting, finance, business management, entrepreneurship, technology, and economics for students in 6th-12th grade along with adult learners in professional development settings.

I am a testing administrator for NWEA testing and understand the need for enrichment tutoring to bring students up to grade level and beyond. Part of this enrichment can be through individualized instruction, PBL learning environments, and other unique settings to excite students about learning.

Many of the most difficult situations to overcome with students is the motivation to learn after a bad learning experience and it is my goal to excite the student to enjoy learning again through various approaches, no single approach works for any particular student.

I am a MOS-certified instructor for Microsoft and instruct on the use of Microsoft 2001 and 365 (2013) daily. In addition I instruct students in the use of the Google Doc apps when Microsoft is not an option.

Because of my undergrad work in Marketing and the resulting experience of managing two businesses and working on intense projects in the advertising world, I have a unique perspective that I can bring students to better understand the business environment and presentation material for business courses.

If you need tutoring in the area of business classes, business math, economics, or computer applications my experience can help guide you to higher levels than you have achieved in the past. Please consider these opportunities and I look forward to scheduling a tutoring session 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.

Accounting

I am a certified business teacher in the State of Michigan for accounting and spent 20 years in the advertising industry involved in production and cost accounting along with responsibility for budgets and annual reports. My experience in industry and teaching gives me the opportunity to help students understand how accounting works and the overall picture of how all aspects of the accounting cycle works. In addition to accounting I am vocationally certified by the State of Michigan in finance and financial management.

Business

My undergraduate work was in Marketing and from the point of graduation from Oakland University, I spent 18 years in the field of printing, advertising and packaging design. I managed two separate companies over this period and then chose to pursue a teaching career. I am certified both with a professional business teaching certificate and an occupational teaching certificate which is advantageous to school districts for additional revenue because I worked in the industry I am certified for.

Guitar

I have played piano and guitar for over 40 years, my passion being guitar. I play both electric and acoustic guitar and a little mandolin. I particularly enjoy performing Bluegrass music and gospel as well as worship and praise music. I teach beginner and advanced/intermediate lessons for guitar for both children and adults and include some theory into my teaching. The key to student success in learning a musical instrument is the practice - without it, it will be extremely challenging to learn any musical skill.

Marketing

I am a professional marketer by education and trade. I worked in the marketing industry for 18 years before pursuing teaching. I have been certified by the state of Michigan to teach Marketing both as a regular class and for occupational certification. I have run the retail operations of the school store in addition to teaching marketing and entrepreneurship courses in high school.

Microsoft Access

I have been using Relational Database Management Systems since 1984 beginning with Unify RDBMS, then ACCELL by Unify, SQL Database programming, and Microsoft Access.

I have developed production and cost accounting databases using both Unify and Microsoft Access and written 6 versions of a Horse Show Database Program to track shows and yearly statistics for the Central Michigan Horseman's Association.

In addition, as a regular part of the Digital Media and Careers courses I have taught over the past 15 years, there is a unit on Microsoft Access Database design and programming that I teach twice each year.

Microsoft Excel

I have taught Microsoft Excel to students for the past 15 years and I have used Excel in business for over 20 years. I teach to the MOS guidelines where applicable and for students to sit for the MOS test. To be able to sit for the MOS test the students must understand that a great deal of practice hours and tutoring may be involved in preparation. I am a State of Michigan teacher certified to teach all computer applications for business based on my experience and proficiency exams.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have taught Microsoft PowerPoint to children and adults for the past 15 years and I have used PowerPoint while speaking and presenting at conferences for over 20 years. I teach to the MOS guidelines where applicable and for students to sit for the MOS test administered by Certiport. I am a State of Michigan Career and Technical Education teacher certified with both professional and occupational endorsements to teach all computer applications for business based on my experience and MOS exams.

Microsoft Publisher

I began using Microsoft Publisher in 1995 as part of desktop publishing in the printing and advertising industry that I originally worked in. After leaving the industry in 1999 to pursue a career in teaching, I continued to use these skills to teach the program to students in my digital media classes. I have taught Publisher versions of 2000, 2003, 2007, and currently 365 (2013). Microsoft Publisher has dramatically changed over the course of the past 20 years and has released it's most powerful and versatile version yet and I enjoy teaching these skills to the students.

Microsoft Word

I am a MOS certified instructor for Word and teach Microsoft Word daily. In addition I am both Professionally and Occupationally certified by the State of Michigan as a Career Technical Education teacher certified to teach all computer applications for business including Microsoft Word. High school students that complete my courses at the proficient level generally sit for MOS certification administrated through Certiport which I have been a certified proctor for our district.
