About Louise


Bio

I have been teaching math since 1983 at both the high school and college levels. After I got my MBA, I started teaching business courses such as accounting, finance, and economics at a community college, but math, SPSS, and statistics are my favorites. Most of the students I work with are at the high school level or above, and many are enrolled in online courses for which there is little instructor-led support. I also do test prep for ACT and SAT.

I have been teaching math since 1983 at both the high school and college levels. After I got my MBA, I started teaching business courses such as accounting, finance, and economics at a community college, but math, SPSS, and statistics are my favorites. Most of the students I work with are at the high school level or above, and many are enrolled in online courses for which there is little instructor-led support. I also do test prep for ACT and SAT.

I am available evenings and weekends and am flexible as to location. I will tutor in your home or in the local Barnes & Noble, Starbucks, or library if it suits your needs. I have even tutored in a Church! I travel with a laptop, so computer applications such as Excel, Word, SPSS and Access are also a possibility.

Subjects

Business

Business

I earned my MBA back in 1982. Since then I have taught all kinds of business courses, mostly at the community college level. These include business, economics, accounting, and finance. I have taught computer applications for business, and back in the late 1980s I taught spreadsheet applications for business. My (adult) students included both businessmen and administrative professionals. Currently, my job title is "statistician," but most of the work I do as part of the Finance department is business-related.
Finance, Financial Accounting, GMAT, GRE, Macroeconomics, Managerial Accounting, Microeconomics, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word

Computer

Microsoft Access,

Microsoft Access

I have been using Access since 2000. Access is essential when accommodating the demands of the large healthcare organization for which I work. I have also used Access to generate the stats for the articles I publish in professional journals, the most recent of which examined the birth outcomes of Medicaid and CHIP women. I can design Access tables, queries, and reports; create complex criteria statements employing algebraic or logical statements; and import or export data from Access in a variety of formats. If designing an Access database for use by others, I can make Access user-friendly by creating easy-to-use forms for data input.
Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, SPSS

Test Preparation

TAKS,

TAKS

I have worked with students in the past who have failed the test and achieved better than average results. My most recent student, who I started tutoring in math when she was a HS sophomore, had failed the TAKS the year before but after weekly tutoring she passed the 10th grade TAKS and later the exit TAKS easily. Another student I worked with starting in 6th grade did very well on her standardized tests which gained her admission to LSU. I am still working with her - she will graduate this December. As far as hands-on experience with the TAKS test goes, I worked for a brief time (about a year) with the Houston Independent School District in the Research and Accountability department. One of my duties there was to look for evidence of TAKS cheating by 3rd and 5th graders. They had contracted with a vendor to do this work but also wanted an in-house analysis which would point them in the right direction should there be any problems. I spent a lot of time with those tests and became familiar with how they were structured.

Organized and Direct

Clear and knowledgeable. Louise helped me learn how to use functions on my calculator to work more efficiently and helped me over the learning hump that was holding me back.

tutoring

Louise has lot of patience to offer a student when learning and understanding a lesson. I highly recommend her! She knows a lot about my subject and made me understand such a difficult task. The only problem was with my computer and sharing files, but she handled them all with expertise. Thank you Louise!

Finance math

Louise is so helpful and flexible ! She made the whole process so easy and convenient. Her rates were perfect for my budget . I will definitely be using her again .

Christina, 2 lessons with Louise

I really like Louise!

She was very personable and I really like how she truly tried to tackle the problems. I will use her again. However, she did not have the same financial calculator as I did and I wish I saw more of the problems being worked out. But her demeanor and personality made finance "fun" - never thought I would be using those words together.

She's awesome

Louise is very knowledgeable and fun to work with. She really has helped me with breaking down the concepts I struggle with in finance. If you need help in any math or business course, you should definitely work with her.
