I am a West Point graduate who has been to thirteen countries and traveled through most of the US. In those travels I have experienced a great deal of life, and worked alongside many people in all walks of life. I have studied and learned a wide variety of topics to one degree or another, and am actively learning and continuing my education, and expect to do so throughout my life. I received a cum laude title on the college-level national latin exam in eighth grade; I have had a college-level... [more]
Math in general has always been a specialty of mine; Geometry in particular I took in ninth grade and got a High A. As with most math-based classes, understanding the logic and the process has always been essential to me in succeeding, and passing that on to others has always garnered positive results.
I addition to having tutored ESL in other countries, to children and adults, I speak Spanish at a high level, and have some small experience with Russian, German, and Japanese.
I attended private schools from first through eighth grade. While in middle school, I learned via the Thayer method, whereby a student does homework and studying Before coming to class, at which point the teacher corrects and supplements their knowledge. I graduated from West Point, which required significant time and effort investment, in addition to efficient and thorough studying methods and routines. General highlights I learned and practiced, and can impart to others, include time management and task prioritization techniques, physical and mental organization methods, and the ability to discern and use critical data (for example, in word problems).
I have been working regularly with Microsoft Outlook since 2005. I have worked with nearly every function, from calendar merging and PST creation to contact syncing and more. In my work experience I have been required to help colleagues with one issue or another related to Outlook on at least a weekly basis, and have always been able to help resolve their issue. My methods generally involve walking through the process, detailing the logic of the process, and having them complete an example unaided but supervised; though obviously the most useful methods adapt to the student.
