A graduate of Cornell University, I have backgrounds in English, anatomy, human relations, and computer software. My communication skills and ways of explaining things have led me to become an experienced, effective, and efficient instructor.
I can also help prepare résumés, teach interviewing techniques, and develop critical thinking skills.
My background in multiple subjects comes from a lifelong interest in numerous areas of study and academia. I currently teach classes of about 20 students and have years of experience connecting with learners.
My style is very professional, but friendly, as well. When students finally understand something that had been frustrating them, I get great satisfaction.
