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 a BA in Business, a MBA in Management and a PhD in Leadership Studies. In addition to 25 years of senior corporate experience, I have completely built four HR and Corporate Services departments. I have also taught numerous business courses at certificate, Associate, undergraduate and graduate level.

Career Development

I have 25 years as an HR executive, planning succession and developing employees. I have also taught multiple classes on graduate and undergraduate level in Career Development. My Consulting business specializes in Executive coaching and career development.

Handwriting

In a Montessori school children write in cursive while they are learning phonics and begin reading. I have 10 years of Montessori experience. I have taught many children how to write cursively and to print legibly.

Phonics

I have a Montessori Diploma and owned my school for 3 years. I have taught scores of children to read in the school and privately using phonics. In Addition, I volunteered at an underserved community elementary school where I helped an illiterate 3rd grader use phonics to go from zero reading ability to reading the most books and chapter books in his class. The program was HOST or Help One Student to Succeed.

Public Speaking

As a senior executive for Fortune 500 companies I have had numerous speaking engagements, seminar presentations, career development course development and personal speaking requests. I have also done extensive public speaking about Montessori, Literacy, School Initiatives, and charitable causes. I also have taught in classrooms for 13 years. I have judged speech contests for 5 years.

Reading

I have taught several hundred 4-5 year olds to read and develop language and English skills. I am a patient and enthusiastic individual. This has resulted in assisting children to meet and surpass grade level requirements in reading, English skills and literature. In addition, I have a unique approach that allows children to develop learning skills that will serve them after tutor assistance. I have a BA, MBA and PhD. I have a Montessori diploma and have owned and taught in my own school. I have taught as an adjunct and as a tutor for the last 14 years.

Study Skills

I have taught for the last 13 years on the College level, and have been the study and tutor for such support services as Labs in Statistics, Government, English, Humanities , Project Management and Business Management, and various other subjects. I have been trained in assisting students improve their grades through structured study skill development. Additionally, as a Montessori accredited teacher, I have instilled good study skills in children from ages 3 up.
