I have a Master's in English as well as a Teaching Certification in English. I currently tutor ESL writing at Phoenix College. In addition, I will have my TESOL Certification in June. I'm qualified in virtually all English skill areas including reading, writing, ACT; SAT reading and writing, grammar, vocabulary, ESL, TOEFL. I enjoy tutoring in English. People judge a person in 30 seconds...how you express yourself matters!

My MBA is a double major in Finance and Quantitative studies, providing me with outstanding training for a successful Wall St. career. I spent 20+ years on Wall St. programming, and managing software development projects for portfolio managers and traders...covering equities, currencies, futures and fixed income. I have extensive experience in training clients to use financial systems. I draw upon my MBA studies for tutoring in business, study skills, economics and pre-algebra, statistics. I currently trade foreign currencies for my own account.

I use lesson plans with my students. These state the student's goals and details how we're going to reach them. It produces results. I feel it is a win-win situation for my students!
