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 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 am available evenings and weekends and am flexible as to location. I will tutor in the local Barnes & Noble, Starbucks, or library if it suits your needs, but most of my work is now online. I have even tutored in a Church! Computer applications such as Excel, Word, SPSS (my favorite!) and Access are also possible.

Thank you for allowing me to be your tutor. Also, please do NOT attempt to schedule a lesson using the Wyzant tool. I have several other jobs so I do not check the Wyzant site as often as I should. If you text or call me at the # I have provided I will be sure to schedule you at your requested time.

Subjects

Business

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.

Knowledgeable, patient, and the exemplary tutor

Louise taught me the basics of SPSS. I liked Louise's down-to-earth approach to tutoring. She was awesome to work with and creative in her explanation of the SPSS features. Louise accomplished in one hour one of the most meaningful learning experiences with me. She made me feel like I could do this. I know she is extremely busy, however, I feel like I can text her a question and she will get back to me with an explanation. I plan to continue seeking her services. I am taking some statistics classes for my doctoral degree and Louise is my mentor regarding statistical technology. I am truly blessed to have met her in my educational journey and I sincerely and respectfully think she is an awesome teacher. Zen.

Knowledge and patient tutor

I was taught Business Calculus in our session. We did limits, continuity, piece wise functions, and several types of derivatives. I like that she was consistent in teaching ways to do the problems and I left knowing more than I did previous.

Amazing help!

She helped me on SPSS to create a policy report for Bangladesh for my Masters (Sci) assignment! Doing Chi square tests and cross-tabs etc. Really great - would definitely recommend.

Louise is a great tutor who is able to direct the learning process!

Louise exhibited a great deal of patience while helping me to understand a difficult concept. She also worked with me, providing suggestions and quickly manipulating questions in SPSS which would have taken me hours. Thanks Louise, I appreciate you!

Great stats tutor!

Louise made my 8 weeks of statistics as stress-free and understandable as possible for someone who is not a math whiz at all. I was truly grateful for her guidance and help!

Knowledgeable and great to work with!

Louise helped me with an operations management class, which was a really tough multidisciplinary class. Definitely will work with her again for future classes.
