Learning is the key to everything. It’s the universal key that opens all doors. Youth, teens and adults are constantly learning and acquiring new skills.
Once, when I was very young, I won an essay contest. I believe this event encouraged me to find the value in reading and writing. When I was in high school, an English teacher once presented my homework in class, to my peers, as a good example of translation. I loved this! Another high school teacher cited my senior thesis as an excellent research and writing example. I loved this even more. When I worked as a writer for a publication, my readers said they followed my work and appreciated my stories.
These events have inspired me to change careers. I am transitioning to teaching, where my focus is on English. Speaking from experience, no matter what career we choose, it is vital that we are able to write well. It is also vital that we are able to comprehend that which we read. These skills help us to be successful in the "real world."
I am interested in teaching adults and high school students who are seeking assistance with developing their English skills. In addition, I would like to help those who are in need of understanding basic computer skills – such as word processing, e-mailing and internet research. These skills are essential for remaining competitive in today’s market. Often, they are the tools through which we make our voices heard.
If you contact me for tutoring, I will give you my best. I will meet you at a safe location, within a reasonable distance. For planning purposes, I have asked for at least 12 hours advance notification if a student needs to cancel or reschedule a session. Otherwise, I am fairly flexible about scheduling appointments. Thank you. Learning is the key to everything. It’s the universal key that opens all doors. Youth, teens and adults are constantly learning and acquiring new skills.

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.
While many people use e-mail programs such as Lotus Notes, Google Mail, Yahoo or one of a variety of online-based e-mail programs, I have always preferred using Outlook. Initially, I became most experienced with Outlook by using it in an office setting. I have Executive Assistant experience, during which I supported several managers and senior managers. Outlook seems to be a preferred resource for large, successful companies, and I was fortunate to have been placed in positions in which I used Outlook on a daily basis. A typical day at the office for me would be to use Outlook to set up meetings, book rooms (resources), and manage an executive’s calendar by using Outlook to set up meetings, to cancel meetings or to reschedule meetings. The address book in Outlook is user- friendly. I like setting up contacts, because there are different ways to view them, such as card format or list format. I like the formatting tools that are available with Outlook. These tools are easy to locate and select via the toolbar. I find that with Outlook, I am able to create a very professional looking and sophisticated e-mail, when necessary. I also like the calendar feature, which allows the user to view a calendar, and arrange or reschedule meetings in a calendar view. I also like that invitees have the option to respond to meeting or appointment requests through Outlook. Overall, Outlook is a highly-functioning tool with many logical tools.
