About Lore

As a retired business executive, I have extensive experience starting up and growing organizations. Through this process, I have interviewed hundreds of applicants and know first-hand what characteristics and style differentiate the best from the average. I can help you effectively prepare for your interview, including polishing your resume and creating cover letters. I want you to walk into your interview ready and confident. I can also help you navigate your career, brainstorming tactics for managing through difficult work situations. I will help you find your passion and can help you improve your performance at work. I have excellent writing and communication skills and am an expert at MS Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook) and SharePoint.

My style is collaborative. I will work with you to help plan your career, search for a job or resolve a work issue. My goal is to provide you with the tools to help guide you long-term. I am committed to ensure you are satisfied with my service. I have been successful in my career and can make you successful in yours.

We will work collaboratively. For example, you can come to me with a draft resume, cover letter, presentation or whatever document/presentation you are working on. I will review it with you, work with you to refine and finalize it. I feel it is critical that you are the owner of your own story and as such play a lead role in developing your "voice" through whatever the communication medium. This builds your confidence and skills for a lifetime. We will work together, but I will not be the author. I am experienced at delivering presentations and have coached my employees on good presentation skills. Likewise, if you are stuck and don't know where to start (in writing a resume, cover letter, presentation or any document), I will help you get started. We will brainstorm ideas together, develop an outline, consider content, style -- to get you unstuck.

I can also assist in career coaching and navigating workplace dynamics and politics. I have held a number of positions in my career so I understand how organizations work. Having managed teams large and small, I can provide a unique perspective on what managers look for in their employees. I have extensive experience in coaching and developing employees, including providing career direction and performance feedback. I am well respected for my coaching skills. We will talk through your work situation and develop a plan of attack for resolving it. Similarly, we can explore your interests and explore ideas for new career directions.

Because I've worked in high-tech my entire career where managers at all levels are expected to be proficient in computer skills, I can also help you learn, understand and use Microsoft Office tools, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, as well as SharePoint. I have extensive experience with data analysis and can help you understand how to leverage the full power of Excel for analytics. You will come to me with the "problem" you need to solve, or with a specific goal in mind. From there, we will develop a plan to address your needs -- whether it is performing a specific analysis, creating a presentation, writing a paper -- or simply developing a higher level of proficiency in using these tools.

Please contact me to learn more about my services and to determine if my skills match your needs. I am happy to work with anyone - young or old!

Please note: I am not able to assist in the college application process, including essay-writing) at this time. I am currently a volunteer involved in recruiting and interviewing college applicants so I cannot help in this area as it is a conflict of interest.

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.

Career Development

I've had 30 years of professional experience, including starting up a number of organizations for which I've had to hire and retain employees. I have coached hundreds of employees throughout my career and have hired hundreds more -- I know what it takes for someone to get hired and to advance in their careers. I can coach others on how to effectively navigate office politics, how to find their true passions and how to advance their careers, capitalizing on their own individual strengths.

Microsoft Excel

Having run data insights and analytics organizations, I am fluent in Microsoft excel, including pivot tables, statistical functions, lookups (V, H, index/match), and developing professional looking graphs for presentations and board packages.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have created and delivered hundreds of presentations throughout my career. I've learned from the best consulting groups in the country - Boston Consulting Group, KPMG, Accenture, McKinsey. Developing clear, concise, professional looking presentations is an art and a science.

Proofreading

I am the "go to" person among my friends and family for proofreading and editing essays and letters. My mother was an English teach and a stickler for proper English grammar. I have assisted both my children in their high school essay writing and college essay applications.

Public Speaking

Throughout my 30 year technical career, I've given many presentations, including to audiences of 400 people and more. I was a member of Toastmasters and took two different public speaking courses: one at Stanford and one through work. I have listened to many professional presentations throughout my career and have coached my staff on effective presentation delivery.
