Experienced Higher Learning Educator wanting to help students of all grade levels with basic homework, leaning how to prepare for testing, and preparing resume in San Diego

Methodology

I enjoy applying a wide variety of strategies to my classroom instruction. The traditional format of lecture is supplemented with PowerPoints and visual information to engage the students. I have found that most students, regardless of age, enjoy using technology as part of the learning process. The majority of students I work with have very challenging schedules, so I integrated an online classroom platform to provide the students with access to material 24-hours a day. I use case studies to help students apply solutions to actual problems. I also use interactive projects that require the students to use their personal knowledge, textbook, and outside information to create an event. Hands-on learning is one of the most effective forms of teaching that I use. I have developed a restaurant lab that the students run once a week. This not only helps solidify the material but also gives those students without much real-world experience a better working knowledge of the industry.
I understand that each learning experience is unique to each student, so so I try to cover as many learning styles as possible.

Background

Over the last ten years, I have engaged a diverse group of adults that include traditional and nontraditional students, various ethnic and economic groups, students that are changing careers or learning new skills, and many students over 55 years of age. Each class, group and individual student required a different combination of teaching styles to improve their learning outcomes.  Currently I am teaching online Hospitality Purchasing and Cost Control along with Menu Design and Layout in an 8 week format using Blackboard.
 Recently taught a customer service lab for a fine dining restaurant. The class utilized face-to-face instruction, e-learning, on the job coaching, and self-directed learning environments to teach and train adults how to manage dining room operations. Students improved their skills and developed new skills in customer service, daily operations and staff management.
 Each training session has a diverse population mostly made up of 18-50 year olds and operates every 4-weeks.
 Utilized e-learning for communication of weekly expectations and daily feedback, distribution of classroom materials and testing to measure learning outcomes.
 Development of training materials, organize new concepts into manageable learning, created a daily assessment of skills and prove hands-on training to help student learn the basics of restaurant operations.
 Mentor students in their externship as required to complete their Associates Degree.
 Courses taught also include: Human Resources, Purchasing, Menu Design and Accounting both online and onground.
 Teach hospitality classes that are a required part of the associate’s degree program for culinary science, pastry arts, and/or hotel, restaurant management.

TEACHING INTERESTS
Throughout my career I have worked in various aspects of education as a district and building substitute teacher (in elementary and secondary education) and as an Instruction Assistant (for emotionally handicapped fourth and fifth graders). I am comfortable working with both Associate and BA students in various management related disciplines. I have also enjoyed introductory, remedial, and general studies types of courses. It is refreshing and challenging to be able to work with new students.



UNIVERSITY SERVICES
• During my time with Ivy Tech Hospitality Department I have also actively participated in various support programs designed to facilitate faculty and student improvement. I am currently a member of The National Restaurant Association and have been involved with the students by chaperoning trips to Chicago to the NRA Food Show.
• I have also been responsible for developing my own measures of evaluating student learning and improving student learning outcomes. I teach and work effectively with a diverse student population that ranges in ethnic, age, and economic backgrounds.
• .

RESEARCH INTERESTS
• During my graduate work I developed a website that my students were able to use to access class material. I furthered this research in my graduate Action Research Project to include numerous types of media that would appeal to different learners. I am looking forward to continuing this research because of the success I have already documented.
