I specialize in training and performance improvement. I hold a PhD in Education, a Master of Public Administration, a Bachelor's of Science in paralegal studies, and an Associate's in Arts in business administration. In conjunction with nearly 23 years of judiciary employment, I feel that the aforementioned studies and my professional experience have equipped me to effectively tutor students in the following disciplines: government and policy, law, business and other general educational courses.

My greatest strengths are in economic analysis, forecasting and assessing business return on investment initiatives, technical training, performance and training improvement analysis and consulting, systems development, performance benchmarking, and business/program auditing and evaluation.

I also have a zealous passion for assisting with academic development through knowledge-sharing and knowledge-transferring methods. I have worked as a substitute teacher in three counties. I anticipate the opportunity to work as a tutor for such will enhance efforts to polish my employee brand in the educational field.

Thank you for your time and your consideration.

Subjects

Business

Business,

Business

I have a Bachelors and Associate in Arts degrees in Business Administration. I also worked as a supervisor of a retail store for approximately two years. Duties consisted of various business functions, such as bookkeeping, schedule planning, interviewing potential sales associates, projecting and forecasting goals in sales, and replenishing merchandise via requisitions.
Law,

Law

I worked in legal environments for more than 26 years. I enjoy helping others and this field demands outstanding customer/client relation skills. My most enjoyable subject is Employment Law. I thrive on defending the underdogs. I have observed a plethora of trials, hearings, and other proceedings, e.g. Bush v. Gore, United States v. Noriega, and Elian Gonzalez v. INS. Moreover, I have prepared numerous legal documents and correspondence, i.e., interrogatories, answers and responses, motions, retainer letters, notices, court orders and opinions.
Microsoft Excel,

Microsoft Excel

I have used Microsoft Excel (Excel) in work settings and at home. I have taken several Excel courses. I also created statistical spreadsheets using Excel for academic and work-related projects. Other documents I developed through Excel include directory listings and tables consisting of statistical data, bars, charts and graphs.
Microsoft PowerPoint,

Microsoft PowerPoint

I use Microsoft PowerPoint for several tasks. For example, I have prepared training presentations for work-related projects and dissertation committee conference call presentations for academic purposes. I have also used PowerPoint to create a slide show to outline a training manual. I find that Adobe Captivate has similar features of PowerPoint. I can show you how to use several features, such as the radio button and animations (including transition schemes).
Microsoft Word,

Microsoft Word

I am a dinosaur user of Microsoft Word (Word). It was first introduced within the work environment. Since then, I have used it both at work and home for numerous years that may date back to or near the time of invention. Moreover, I have taken courses to stay abreast of the new and improved changes offered in new release versions. Although it does not perform every function, many features in certain versions of Word are comparable to features of Microsoft Publisher and Access.
Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I have taken public speaking courses. I also have presented seminars and conferences and facilitated various workshops. I delivered various overviews of studies and programs to judicial court staff during meetings, conferences and seminars.

Computer

Microsoft Access,

Microsoft Access

I have been using Microsoft Access for approximately 7 years to perform both work-related tasks and personal tasks. In one situation, I assisted an operations consultant with designing an auditing sampling program via Access software. The primary feature was to randomly draw a valid sample from case management data I input that represented the targeted population subjected to future audits. The Access audit sampling program superseded an obsolete program that was used via the Paradox program, and it was less convoluted and more user-friendly than the Paradox program.

I am an avid reader. I enjoy all literary subjects. Moreover, academic studies introduced me to various subject matters through the reading of required seminal works in those subjects, ranging from business, economics, law, psychology and statistics. For personal enjoyment, I like reading romance, suspense, and motivational, self-help books. One of my favorite books is "Awakening the Giant Within," by Anthony "Tony" Robbins.
