About Jerry

As a former professor of marketing, public relations director, international marketing director, and published technical writer, I know the importance of effectively communicating your thoughts to a diverse audience in the classroom and throughout life. Currently a marketing consultant for a national association and former member of the society of professional journalists, I have been leveraging my passion for teaching and coaching as an independent presentation and effective writing tutor.

I have further channeled my love of volunteering and teaching into community outreach, where I am a background checked active Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Volunteer, working in a variety of roles such as forensics and visitor relations. Further, I am first aid/CPR certified, and have a Department Homeland Security certification in Emergency Response.

My goal for my students is for them to be able effectively analyze a proposed topic of writing, formulate a thought process for gathering research and evidence, decide on their position, and effectively communicate through facts or persuasion their argument clearly. Further, my skills have assisted students in creating effective resumes for the workforce.

I look forward to assisting you in becoming the most articulate and adaptable communicator you can be in the writing arts!

My many years of work experience and theoretical expertise have helped me develop a good sense of how to manage one's thoughts and navigate the art of clearly and concisely transferring them to print. This covers topic choice, research, outlining, drafting, proofing, and completion for submission

As hiring manager of different departments, I can assist in drafting a highly effective and organized resume for career development.

As a many year veteran of marketing, and having earned a subject matter expert title, I view marketing as fundamentally written and visual communication poised to effectively persuade your audience to desire your "product."

Whether it be class based persuasive or informative essays, Master's Thesis, technical presentation, or delivering an effective presentation to a business or class, the art of communicating convincingly is a skill that you will utilize throughout a lifetime.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss how we can hone your talents into a skill that will be valuable throughout your life.

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

As a former hiring manager in Public Relations, and published technical writer (my information is available on my LinkedIn), I have been helping students effectively decide where their passions lie, and best promote and prepare themselves for interviews. I also assist in creation of unique and impressive resumes highlighting their skill sets and talents.

Computer Science

I am able to provide copies of my Master's in Information Science, as well as my State of Nevada Board of Education Subject Material Expert and teaching license for computer science (has since expired).

Marketing

I can provide copy of my State of Nevada teaching certification for Marketing and Computer Science. It has since expired, however it validates me as a subject matter expert based on my years of International Marketing experience.

Microsoft Windows

Having a Master's in Information Science, I am familiar with all aspects of the Windows operating system, advanced settings, troubleshooting. I have used Windows in education and throughout my career. 15+ years' experience with all versions.

Study Skills

Every student has a different way of absorbing and retaining information. As a former professor, I've noted the teach and note taking methodology is only partially effective, being only one facet in a multilevel approach. Active reading, teaching the material to a friend or colleague, and engaging in real life case studies results in far better mastery of the materials.

I motivate the student to dig deeper... to find a credible (preferably scientific) article which may conflict or at least engage debate with what is taught. Approaching a topic from two different angles, no matter the student's personal view, shows the ability to be versatile and communicative- a skill which stands out in any setting.
