Study Skills

My professional background is project management and operations management. Both require attention to detail, seeing the bigger picture, organization, planning, and communication. I have been a tutor for many years and have used this expertise in helping students plan ahead, develop and apply consistent study habits. Often students fail because they are overwhelmed, do not know how to organize their time, plan ahead, or just need someone to help them bridge the knowledge gap. I teach students how to find answers, be self-sufficient and know when to ask for help.

My background includes 16 years of desktop publishing experience. I worked for Enterprise-size companies and produced their Marketing collateral, books, and manuals. I am familiar with Adobe InDesign and FrameMaker, Microsoft Publisher, Word and PowerPoint. I understand how to setup documents so they look professional and read well. I can teach how to publish and distribute documents electronically as well as send them to copy shops or printer vendors to get printed and published.
