In college, I studied to be a teacher of mathematics. The courses I took in college consisted of several primary, secondary, and special education. We studied the different development stages in life and different learning techniques. I have taught at the high school and college level. I have several grammar students right now that I have been with for almost 3 years. I have refereed ice hockey for 6 years (age group from 4 to 16). I love working with kids of all ages.

I majored in Mathematics, one of the courses that was requested was linear algebra. I excelled in the this topic in high school and college. I have successfully help many students in this area.


Marketing

Marketing is more than just advertising. I have learned in my MBA program that there are more components to to marketing. There are psychology and analytical elements to it. Also, a lot of research and development. I have been fortunate enough to take several marketing classes and international marketing classes.


Microsoft Outlook

Both my universities have used Outlook. Therefore, I have been working with it for 7 years. I have actually had to write a program that helps better sort spam.

I grew up in the era of computers. I am biased towards Windows over Mac, Unix and Linux. I have a lot of experience and patience teaching Windows, especially to elderly women. I am a computer science major, so if I can't navigate through Windows, I should pick a new study.
