Business professional with diverse background gives lessons on Business, Management, and Economics

Methodology

I prefer to teach undergraduate students and other interested individuals using a very interactive approach. I do not deal in black-and-white, but prefer to teach traditional lessons as well as differing opinions. I treat students not as a blackboard to copy truths onto, but as logical and thinking beings to expose to differing ideas so they can generate their own truths.

Background

I have over 30 years experience in various business disciplines and an MBA from Texas A&M University - Commerce , TX. I am currently pursuing a Graduate Certificate at Harvard University Extension. I am a certified Adjunct Instructor and passionate about learning, not memorizing.
