About Sheila

I initially started my career in Business, and in 2009 transitioned to teaching. I am certified as a Business Teacher and have earned my CELTA certification (ESL). I taught one year in Connecticut, and then I had an opportunity to work in Dubai about at the Secondary and University level focusing on Business (Finance, Marketing, Logistics, Human Resources, Strategy and Project Management).

I am someone that loves working with people young adults and professionals. I am very creative and think quickly on my feet. My experience in Dubai allowed me to work with over 100 nationalities so I have a great deal of global exposure and cultural awareness.

After living in Dubai for three years working with and educating over 100 nationalities in Business, I decided it would be beneficial to obtain my CELTA certification. I traveled to Istanbul, Turkey where I worked on and obtained my certification. I was able to work with various levels and a large number of adults during this process. Most of my students from Turkey have stayed in touch and continue to learn from me due to our connection.

I am someone that has taken the GMAT, succeeded and obtained an MBA. Also, I utilize my skills tested (English, Mathematical, Logic etc) on a daily basis, so I have personally experienced the benefit of truly understanding the skills tested. I have worked with a number of students from various countries and feel I am able to help people prepare for their future careers in Business.

I obtained my MBA and then went to work for two of the 'Big Four' in Management Consulting. I took on various projects in various industries. I have primarily worked for Fortune 500 companies, but have also had some exposure to small to medium sized companies. I have international exposure in my work as well as in my teaching.

I am someone that is a life long learner, believe in the importance of education as well as provide top quality training. I am passionate about what I do and want to help you succeed.

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 as well as a Master's of Education for Business. I have taught in the US and in Dubai focusing on business theory. I have taught close to 500 students in this area.

Career Development

I am completing a Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) certification. I am someone that has experienced my own career transitions from Business to Education. Also, I have coached a number of students in Secondary as well as University level on assessment tools and career options.

Project Management

I was a project manager at Pepsi Bottling Group (now merged with Pepsi) for three years. I was responsible from the Finance perspective to develop a tool to forecast sales by region. Also, I led the integrated testing efforts and training for the program which impacted 1,200 users at Pepsi in North America.

Also, I was hired to teach project management at a university in Dubai. It was part of the business undergraduate program.

Public Speaking

I am someone that has had to present a number of times both while studying at MBA school as well as in my various jobs. I later became very involved in Toastmaster's International and further developed my skills. While working at Pepsi, I was elected to be President of the Toastmaster's International (public speaking for adults with many number of chapters around the globe) and brought it to the distinguished level. Finally, while a member of the club I entered a 'humorous speech' contest and I ended up competing at a regional level against many other chapters of the organization.

We had several high level problems to work through. Sheila got right to it and explained what I needed to do. This was a very efficient session and there was value added in that I learned some new excel techniques. Excellent session.
