As a graduating senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Business School in May of 2016, majoring in Accounting, I am eager to further expand my career and experiences. I believe that my dedication and strong work ethic, combined with my analytical and organizational skills would make me a perfect fit as a tutor.
The courses I have taken, as well as the many organizations and previous work experience I have attained has provided me with customer interaction experience, proved my reliability, and enhanced my leadership and mathematical skills. Math has always been my strongest subject, as shown through my math testing scores, and advanced placement upon entering college. Similarly, my enriched abilities in organization and communication would prove extremely useful for this position.
As I worked my way up from a retail employee to the manager and webstore manager of a retail store, I gained leadership skills, technological skills, as well as business decision making and managing financial data. I carried over these skills into many of the organizations in which I took part, such as the community service committee of Beta Alpha Psi and the Institute of Management Accountants. As an accounting volunteer tutor with Beta Alpha Psi, I gained valuable experience that I can apply to my future tutoring sessions. Through these positions, I have been able to further my technological, leadership, and organizational skills, while also strengthening my management and communication talents.
Another important strength I have is in my computer skills, especially with Microsoft Office, PowerPoint, and Excel. While working as manager and webstore manager, I expanded my computer knowledge, and further enhanced these skills through classes and organizations over the last few years.
Over the course of 4 years in high school, I also volunteered once a week as an after-school tutor and homework helper for elementary school students. It was an extremely gratifying experience, being able to teach these students??? important concepts and methods that I understood.
