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.

Anatomy

For numerous years I was a NYC EMT/Paramedic. Subsequent to that I became a Certified Surgical Technologist. For both of these professions not only was I required to study Anatomy but have participated in numerous autopsies. Since becoming an educator on numerous occasions I have taught Anatomy and Medical Terminology to my surgical students. This topic is as if it is a second language for me.

Career Development

Over the course of the past 15 years, as a program director at 3 institutions of higher education, I collaboratively worked with the career development department as the students within my discipline were required to develop a portfolio containing a resume, cover letter, thank you letter and biographies.
Additionally the textbook that I have authored contains all of the requirements of the how to and what to do in order to become gainfully employed, inclusive on how to conduct oneself during the interview process.
Lastly I would present a seminar to all seniors and would allow them to role play during a "mock interview".

Handwriting

Throughout my academic studies as a young woman throughout my high school years, computer technology was just being developed. Therefore all of the research, the papers, the thoughts that needed to be submitted to my professors were required to be legible and not in print.
My mother had been an english teacher for more than 37 years, and instilled in all of us the need to be not just clear in our speech but within our written word as well.
As a current professor now, although most assignments are completed and submitted on a computer, their workbook assignments are written. WIth that said, in the beginning of each semester I remind students that they need to incorporate correct posture which in turn will help with good penmanship, grasp their pencil or pen with thumb and fingers and carefully adhere to either the D'Nealian, Zaner, Bloser or McDougal handwriting methods (which I explain to them in class).

Homeschool

When living in rural PA, when our youngest son was in 7th and 8th grade, to assist him to get back on track with his concentration of education, we decided that I would home school him.
During those two academic years (once approved by the state of PA), the homeschooling incorporated all of the required subjects, and on a monthly basis I was required to submit data verifying that the work was being completed.
Upon the completion of those two years, our son was ready to re-enter the academic arena, whereas his academic skills had been perfected now he was capable of joining high school both socially and academically.

Italian

I possess a mastery of the Italian language.....spoken, read and written. My years as an educator paired with my knowledge of this amazing language have made it very successful with my students. Beginners, intermediate or advanced, I structure the lessons on an individual need.

Proofreading

There have been numerous articles, textbooks as well as APA Sytle Term Papers, Case Studies and Thesis, in which over the years as an educator I have been requested to proof read, provide comments and suggested corrections based on content and execution. Proofreading by definitions is a process which entails, assessment of content, comprehension and adherence to a rubric to ensure that all material is appropriately shared. I believe that all of this is a skill that I have been involved in for many years.

Public Speaking

Public speaking, presenting at conferences with thousands in attendance has been one of the activities I have participated in for many years. I have presented at the National level since 2003. Have attended numerous workshops demonstrating efficient public speaking techniques.

Study Skills

For the past 15 years I have been teaching to our Freshman students, and then reinforced this knowledge to our senior students the importance of Study Skills. Here is a small sampling of what I have developed and shared.
Make a schedule
Concentration
Designate a specific place that you can use for studying
Make sure there is good lighting, ventilation, comfortable chair, a desk to spread out on

Writing

I have authored numerous articles in professional journals, many holding a weight of 1 to 2 CE credits for the professionals recertification requirements. In 2010 I published a textbook, and am currently working on the revision. Over the years I have written various self studies to assist the higher education institutions I worked for to gain programmatic accreditation.

Best tutor EVER!

Karen is the tutor I have been looking for. She is patient and makes learning fun. She has a keen ability to understand my limited abilities and she knows exactly what I am trying to learn. I have every confidence that I will be conversational in Italian very soon with her help.
