Career Development

I am a former high school English teacher and college professor. Resume writing is a core competency that I have taught and mastered. Using both online and hand's on references, I am able to guide students to improve their resume writing to apply for positions with confidence. I also provide career guidance based on the interests of my clients. Whether the student has an existing resume or we have to build one, the potential for greater response will come from a well-written resume.

Study Skills

I would like to be certified in study skills because I have worked closely with students and colleagues in preparation for tests, written assignments and presentations. The key to accomplishing mastery and retaining information is having great study skills. Preparation for study includes choosing the right environment for studying, excellent note taking, organizing notes and developing a system for reviewing information. I have worked closely with students to find a system that works for them that is unique to their learning abilities. I also have techniques specific to learning vocabulary, preparing to take multiple choice tests and self-editing. My students were always taught study skills at the beginning of the year so that they were prepared as the assignments increased in their degree of difficulty.
