About Terry

I am a life learner - I attended school while working full-time and raising my family. I enjoy helping others reach their full potential and to be the best they can be.
I hold an Associate's Degree from HACC in Psychology; a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Elizabethtown College & a Master's in Organizational Development & Leadership from Shippensburg University.

I was an advocate for my son who was special needs (LD/Gifted); the school was ready to give up on him, but through perseverance he holds two degrees from PSU! My daughter is a graduate of Bloomsburg University.

I believe students get out of education what they put into it -- no one can take what you learn away from you.

I have over 30 years in the Information Technology field. I have been a programmer, analyst and supervisor of IT professionals. I helped my employees with their career development, determined their training needs, and was a team player.

I love learning and read alot. I feel my strengths are in vocabulary, reading, career development, using MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and general usage of computers.

I don't give up easily and will work with students as long as they're committed to working.

I look forward to working with you.

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.

Business

I have worked in a business environment for over 30 years. Business was my undergraduate degree major. I continue to enhance my knowledge of business through reading and research.

Career Development

My own career in combination with my education is my best example of career development. I began my working career in an entry level position and have moved to numerous jobs always advancing my career. I have studied numerous texts and read many books about development of one's self and career. I have been a mentor and have had mentors. I am a senior employee at my employer and offer my experiences to others to help them make career decisions. I coach my employees and help them assess their skill levels so that available training can be researched and scheduled. I have participated in many advanced leadership programs and have put to practice what I have learned and experienced.

General Computer

I have worked with computers for over 30 years. I have programmed computer systems, designed, tested and worked with customers on defining their requirements to translate to an automated system. I have conducted training sessions with customers on how to use the systems I've worked on and have taught others on the generalities of computers and how to use software.

Needlework

I learned embroidery from my grandmother for a Girl Scout badge. My grandmother was a tailor; my mother and aunt taught me how to sew. I have been sewing for over 40+ years. I have done cross stitch for just as long. I worked at a craft store and taught beginner knitting to customers. I took home etc in school which also included sewing. I taught my children to sew. I have made my own clothing, gifts and taught needlework almost as long as I've been alive. Needlework is my passion.

Reading

I have been an avid reader since childhood. I always strive to find techniques that fit the student.

Sewing

I have sewn from a very young age. My entire family on both sides were seamstresses and taught me the various varieties of needlework along with sewing -- embroidery, counted cross stitch, knitting and crocheting. I enjoy these crafts in my spare time and have made many handcrafted items as gifts and for charity.
