About Ms. Lena

As a former Technology Teacher for middle through high school students, it was gratifying to see students who had no interest in learning the correct way to type and who were typing on average 5 words per minute at the beginning of the school year learn how to type correctly with their fingers in a 'horse's hoof' position, backs straight against the chair, feet firmly planted on the floor and eyes on the assignment increase their speed to 30 wpm by the end of the school year.

I am currently assisting my niece who is in college for Healthcare Management. It's gratifying to read comments from her Professor mirror my comments. This is indicative of my taking education serious and realizing that what is acquired through learning is something that can never be taken away from you - Learning is one of the Keys to Success.

As a former teacher, Welfare to Work Orientation and Professional Development Facilitator and Clinic Presenter, the most importance aspect of my job was feeling comfortable talking in front of people. This comfort has afforded me the opportunity to gauge the audience and to know when to tweak the lesson or the presentation.

Learning is a never ending process and I believe that one can learn something new everyday if they only listen.

I am a Certified I.R.S. Tax Preparer managing a tax site that generates approximately $2 million in refunds in less than 50 days during Tax Season - January - April. I am also a member of the Training team who help to train over 1,000 volunteers.

If you are looking for a Tutor with compassion, patience and a genuine love for learning, you've come to the right place.

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.

Business

I have an MBA in Business and am often sought out to sit on various committees regarding employee morale, climate and culture, recognition events annual holiday events. I also have a degree in HR management. My ability to look at both sides instead of jumping to conclusions is often lauded and appreciated.

Career Development

It is important for one to want to advance in their career. In order to do this successfully, it is often helpful to be hired in an entry level position or in a management training program so that all areas of the company are understood. Working with Campaign for Working Families has afforded me the opportunity to learn the inner workings of the organization by volunteering before moving into the Assistant Site Manager, Trainer and Site Manager roles.

Tax Accounting

I have always had a love for math but not enough to become an accountant or a math teacher but enough to have an interest in tax preparation when I purchased my home. I took my income documents to a paid preparer and the refund was identical to the refund that I had on my paperwork. It was then that I became comfortable preparing tax returns for others and when I accepted a position at TWC (Welfare to Work) and our organization was the pilot program for Campaign for Working Families, I knew that I would become a professional tax preparer. This is my 40th year of preparing taxes and I do learn something new every year since tax law changes every year.
