About Ted

Teaching skills include Mac usage (the OS and multiple applications) and French.

I love helping people with their Mac computers and have become a Mac geek over time learning software and hardware troubleshooting. I will show you how to get the most out of your Mac. We will cover proper maintenance and security processes. This will go a long way to making your Mac experience a more useful and trouble-free. We will, of course, start with the basics depending upon your needs.

On another note, I was raised in northern France attending two French Lycées in Lille during my youth. My educational career began as a French Teaching Assistant with studies in comparative literature at Texas Tech University and later as an Assistant French Professor at Lubbock Christian University. With a knowledge of French grammar and native speaking ability, I stand ready to help you or your children absorb the French language. If you are a college student, I can assist you in learning French more quickly.

Please request a free call to discuss how I might be of assistance to you. We can go over the details of your assignment and address any questions you may have.

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.

Bible Studies

I have an undergraduate degree in Bible from Abilene Christian University. I was also an educational director and Bible teacher for number of large churches over the last 30 years.

I prefer teaching Bible content to adults showing the evolution of man's relationship to God from the patriarchs, the prophets, Judaism, and ultimately to Christianity.

Business

I launched several successful divisions (profit centers) for advertising agencies in several states. I also ran a medium sized insurance company with P&L responsibility increasing their $50 million annualized premiums by 15% in three years.

As the founder of Wyse Direct (a division for Wyse Advertising in Cleveland, OH), I successfully launched and branded a new technology product for Seiko-Mead by supporting a nationwide sales team with a predictable flow of qualified sales leads.

While a VP of new business development for the Grizzard Agency, I acted as the direct marketing strategist who refocused the agency’s culture to attract new commercial and fundraising accounts. At the time, Grizzard was essentially a direct mail fund raising production operation. Under my leadership, I built a professional team of advertising specialists preparing Grizzard for the eventual Omnicom acquisition and successful integration into the company's large group of advertising agencies.

A sampling of past clients include MSN, Winn-Dixie Stores, the American Legion, Boy Scouts of America, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, Chase Insurance, Olan Mills Photography, On The Border Restaurants, Southwest Corporate Federal Credit Union and the Arthritis Foundation.

Macintosh

I abandoned the PC about 15 years ago due to continuing problems with the Windows OS.

As the owner of my own business, I spent many hours learning about the Mac to become 100% self-sufficient.

This meant mastering the updating processes, cloud backups, OS X maintenance, troubleshooting and even hardware upgrades for RAM, processors, internal hard drives, video cards and so on.

I only contact tech support for third party software that goes beyond the OS.

I'm definitely an Apple geek and enjoy demonstrating how easy it is to use and maintain regardless of the size of the client's user base.

Marketing

Agency and client side experience:
I have worked on both the advertising agency and client side of direct marketing, general advertising, sales promotion and digital media. I have been responsible for successful campaigns in multiple industries including technology, telecommunications, retail, finance, insurance, health care, fundraising, transportation and travel.

Managed care and insurance lead generation for over 60 companies:
Prior to establishing my first independent direct marketing consultancy in 1987, I worked as an executive for an insurance company in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania and later for a corporation generating incremental revenue and creating new insurance products for these national companies using direct marketing and database marketing strategies.

Launched and built several successful direct marketing agencies:
On the agency side, I founded a division of an advertising agency in Cleveland, OH. Following that assignment, I launched the another agency beyond its wide base of fund raising clients into the “commercial” business.
