About Nancy

Hello prospective tutor candidates. I am a successful college professor in cybersecurity, information systems management, computer studies, criminal justice, project management, and technical studies. My education is extensive and specialized with doctoral studies in the management of information technology, systems security, financial analysis, and risk management. I also have doctoral PhD studies where I achieved a 4.0 grade point average in management and decision science. This specialty is excellent in teaching information systems management, business management, finance, accounting, and all core subjects up to the doctoral level. I also conducted peer reviews of doctoral papers for publication. I am an expert in writing, reviewing papers at all levels, and providing feedback to improve school work. I also have a Masters in Business Administration and am able to provide assistance with all technology subjects, accounting problems, mathematical tracking methodologies, and systems analysis. I acquired a certificate in IT for Project Management and teach college level project management plus many certificate preparation courses.

I acquired the experience to help with all these subjects by supervising major projects. I have the ability to teach, train, and support all project management questions. A Bachelor degree in Law and another Bachelor degree in information systems management provide a unique combination of expertise and education. I managed a computer management division to provide tutorial service for those needing tutorial assistance with computer law and ethics (subjects taught to students who were at the Bachelor level). I have taught elementary school level in after school programs. The subjects taught were computer design and graphics.

I have also taught all age groups from elementary school to teaching senior citizens on operating computers. I designed courses for the Capitol PC Users Group and have taught for military, government, industry, and academia. My experience culminates with over 30 years of experience in being a project manager, systems analyst, accountant, budget analyst, supervisor, teacher, trainer, professor, and veteran.

In addition, I learned to play the trumpet at age 14 and currently play at services for Bugles across America, acquired a black belt in Karate, obtained a military police position in the Army, became a drill sergeant, went to Officer Candidate School, and am able to enhance the learning experience my adapting to the student's individual learning style and ability to understand the material. I have a current Secret clearance and have background checks with my church, government, military, and industry that are current within one year.

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.

This has been proven as a successful undertaking in schools such as a local middle school and the Univ. of MD. As a tutor of attention deficit students, my training and delivery to the students has spanned over 15 years for all age groups from elementary school thru college. I taught groups of students with deficit challenges in after school programs for elementary schools and for weekend training sessions to restore concentration based on interaction with counselors and advisors to create an interactive program of training success.

The classics were part of a tutorial program that I conducted in after school programs as a consultant with my own consulting program as CEO for 8 years.

Students were required to provide sociological factors in adoption of innovations.
