About Rita


Bio

As an IT Help Desk Support Professional, I am experienced in assisting adults with complex computer issues. I like helping people to become more confident and self-sufficient with many subjects including math, English, and technology. I enjoy translating technical jargon, and coaching and mentoring folks to learn by doing. I like assisting people to find the answers for themselves. When this is done, I sincerely believe that people will learn the material better and will be more...

As an IT Help Desk Support Professional, I am experienced in assisting adults with complex computer issues. I like helping people to become more confident and self-sufficient with many subjects including math, English, and technology. I enjoy translating technical jargon, and coaching and mentoring folks to learn by doing. I like assisting people to find the answers for themselves. When this is done, I sincerely believe that people will learn the material better and will be more successful in remembering how things are done.

I hold two undergraduate degrees: one in Music Education and one in Information Systems. My Master's degree is in Theology and Missions. While these degrees do not show my specialties, I am very passionate about math and English. I was a successful public speaker with Toastmasters International for twelve years where I helped speakers and evaluators with their grammar while speaking. My first choice when deciding a major in college was Math and I was accepted as a Math major at Virginia Commonwealth University, although I decided to follow a different path.

I am an award winning public Speaker, winning at the state level while participating in Toastmasters International. As an IT Professional, I am very logical and analytical. In high school, my favorite math subjects were Algebra and Geometry; in English class, grammar and spelling were my favorites. Now as an adult, logic puzzles thrill me.

I am a down-to-earth person who loves to see students succeed. English, math, music, and technology are my passions and strengths. If you want to better comprehend and understand any of these subjects, I am the person to call.
