About Dody

I have been tutoring students of all ages for over 10 years. I have worked with pre-K, elementary, middle school, high school, and college students as well as adults pursuing new career fields. I have experience with phonics, reading, math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, science, biology, chemistry, social studies, history, writing, proofreading, French, and Spanish as a few examples. I have a business location available for tutoring where I have hundreds of books and resources for students to use.

I have also taught college-level courses for 20 years. I have taught courses at four colleges and universities. College courses I teach include business, economics (macro and micro), entrepreneurship, finance, advertising, marketing, taxation, accounting, Microsoft Office, business math, college algebra, history, government, and study skills.

I believe education is important and my goal is to help students in the way that works best for them. I break information down into pieces that are easier to understand and use a variety of techniques depending on the learning style of the student. I am willing to create individualized study plans for students or to help students with homework and projects they have been assigned. I also enjoy helping parents who are home-schooling their children. In addition, I am available to help those pursuing a subject purely for personal enrichment or enjoyment.

I am also a life-long learner. I have a bachelor's in economics, a master's in liberal learning, a graduate certificate in American history, and a graduate certificate in organizational management. I am currently pursuing a second master's in management/organizational leadership.

I work with students both during the school year and throughout the summer. I will also work with students one-on-one or in groups. I am available day and evening hours.

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.

Business

I have been instructing business courses at the college level for 20 years. I have taught business courses at four different colleges. I have completed graduate level courses in business. I also operate my own business.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring elementary (K-6th) students for over 10 years. I have worked with a number of elementary students, helping them complete assignments and projects in a variety of classes. Several of these students have worked with me for years. In addition to my experience, I have taken graduate courses in education that have trained me to work with elementary students. My goal is to break down difficult topics into pieces that are easier for young students to understand. I try to make elementary studies as hands-on and interactive as possible.

Homeschool

I have been tutoring for over 10 years and have worked with homeschool students. I am able to assist parents who just need to supplement what they are already teaching. I am also able to create an individualized course for various subjects where the parent may not have the background necessary to teach the child independently.

Marketing

I have taught college level marketing courses. I have also taught advertising. In addition, I have worked in the market research industry. I am also responsible for marketing activities in my own business.

Microsoft Publisher

I have taught college-level courses that cover Publisher. My teaching style for Publisher, as well as other software applications, uses and hands-on approach. I prefer a student being able to use the software at the same time I am explaining and showing them what to do. I also use Publisher for personal and business activities.

QuickBooks

I have experience using QuickBooks in previous jobs. I also use QuickBooks in my own business. I also teach computerized accounting, which includes teaching QuickBooks and other accounting software.

Social Studies

I have over 10 years experience tutoring students in social studies and related subjects. I have an undergraduate degree in Economics and a graduate certificate in American History, which covers most of the information presented in social studies textbooks. I have also successfully completed college and graduate courses in political science and government.

Study Skills

I have taught college success courses (in class and online) that are designed to teach students study skills and time management. I have worked with students to help them understand their learning style and improve their study skills. I am able to help students improve study skills in a wide variety of subject matter.

Tax Preparation

I worked with H&R Block as a tax professional for five years. I taught tax courses for H&R Block as well. In addition, I have taught taxation courses for three colleges.
