About Meica

My name is Meica (MeKa). I am an experienced college instructor and tutor with experience teaching a variety of topics, including business math, Microsoft Office (PowerPoint, Excel, Word), human resource topics, GED preparation, and more.

Before becoming an instructor, I was Human Resource Generalist, Recruitment and Development Specialist, and Shoe Sales Associate. Although, shoes and HR are important, I love teaching and seeing individuals achieve what they thought was impossible. Teaching and tutoring allows me to do this.

I work hard to get to know my student, so I can create lessons that fit into their lives and help them achieve their goals. Getting to know my students allows me to provide resources and tools for study between sessions. I also provide quick periodic assessments to help gauge learning.

Availability: My schedule is very flexible and I keep my avaialble up-to-date. Please view my profile for more information.
