Welcome! Thanks for visiting my profile. I have been in school for a very long time, learning how to learn, essentially. I have experienced setbacks in my own educational journey and although it took some time, I did indeed overcome a variety of obstacles including learning disabilities. Overcoming my own roadblocks taught me many things; most importantly, that we all have the intelligence and ability to do anything on earth that we want to do. Sharing this truth with my students, building co... [more]

Bachelor of Arts in History Master's Degree in Business Administration (MBA) Pursuing a Doctorate in Business Administration expected '17 (DBA)
Currently pursuing my Doctorate in Business Administration with a concentration in online marketing. This Program presently requires roughly 30 pages of written text each month in 7 to 10 page increments reviewed by a University Professor. This affords many opportunities for improving grammar, editing, spelling, punctuation and general writing dynamics. Additionally I'm certified with over 120 hours in teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) - obtained and practiced throughout New Zealand and Australia.
I have acquired roughly 200 hours in ESL instruction, and teaching methods, while staying in Thames, New Zealand back in 2006-7. I have experience teaching mostly kids, but have helped with their parents as well when applicable.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of the Pacific and plan to pursue a Masters in Military History when I finish my Doctorate program in Business Administration, expected 2017. In short, I love History.
I have a Master's Degree in Business Administration obtained in 2012 from the University of Phoenix. I am also currently pursuing a Doctorate in Business Administration expected in '17. Additionally I have a Master Certificate from the University of San Francisco in Business Process Management (BPM) - a strategy for optimizing efficiency through process improvement.
I have educational and practical application experience in regard to marketing, and online marketing specifically. I spent roughly 2.5 years working independently as a social media marketing consultant and administrator, where I learned a great deal through experience. I am currently pursuing a Doctorate in Business Administration with a concentration in online marketing expected in 2017, which places a heavy emphasis in understanding and interpreting online marketing tactics in both professional and educational settings. Marketing and other business related concepts come as second nature to me, and I would appreciate any opportunity to discuss, teach, or talk about these subjects in any detail.
I have used Microsoft Outlook as an email client in both a business, and a personal setting. In fact I've been using Microsoft programs including Word, PowerPoint, Excel & Outlook for as long as I can remember working on computers. I'm aware of a variety of useful features within the email client for accessing, adding-to or otherwise optimizing Microsoft Outlook to fit the individual needs of users.
I have been using Microsoft Windows and their associated business applications including PowerPoint, Word, and Excel for the better part of two decades, with a heavy emphasis on Word. My undergrad in History, required lots of writing and project creation, and I used Windows to fine tune my skills in all these related areas. Over the years in my MBA and now my Doctorate program, I have only operated on Microsoft Windows. It's safe to say that the use of Microsoft Windows is one of my strongest e-skill-related attributes.
I am experienced in regard to physical fitness activities that improve health and cardiovascular capacity. I have been running consistently for nearly 15 years, before which I spent my entire childhood competitively swimming. I also know a variety of strategies from my own experience as a physical trainer and student of training techniques, which incorporate a safe and realistic schedule for weight loss and muscle tone through a combination of diet and consistent exercise strategy.
