I Am Who I Am

I grLifelongew up in a very small town in the Lowcountry of South Carolina (not even a traffic light). I did well in school because I wanted to make sure that I got out as fast as the law would allow. I entered college with the notion that in four years I would have a degree that I could use to secure a job immediately, work for the rest of my life, and never set foot back in another classroom. Why? Because I HATED school! As I have matured, thankfully I realized that I LOVE learning! Needless to say, I have been in many classrooms – in person and online – since I left college for the first time in 1992. I have a tremendous passion for excellence, intellectual challenges, and lifelong learning. It has taken over 40 years of living, but I have finally realized that my purpose in life is to provide educational services to students of all ages who need personal attention in their studies.

LearningAs a lifelong student, I have earned five college degrees – Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (Howard University), Bachelor of Information Technology (DeVry University), Master of Human Resources Development (Webster University), Master of Business Administration (Webster University), and Master of Marketing Research (University of Georgia) – and am working on a sixth – Doctor of Education in Educational Innovation (Augusta University). Along the way, I obtained Professional Engineer (PE) licenses in South Carolina and Georgia as well as became certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP). Since learning never stops, I continue to engage in additional classes and training to enhance my skills by taking on-line classes through the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library or in-person classes through employers or at community events.

I am the proud mother of five wonderful children. My desire is to one day leave a financial and spiritual legacy for my children, grandchildren, and many generations to come. Over the years, I have received the greatest lessons about what children need from these five gifts from God. They have been a blessing and have made me very proud.

None of this would be possible without extraordinary grace and favor. On Easter Sunday 2001, I accepted Christ as my personal savior and was baptized. I truly trust God to fulfill his every promise. I walk in faith and move according to the Lord’s direction as I fulfill my purpose through the vision He has given to me.

    I had the pleasure of meeting you at my home when you came to tutor Alyssa. We have more in common than you would think! I enjoyed reading this and am so glad you were recommended to us. We have very different lives but in reading this I find that we share some important perspectives. I hope we get to know each other better. I think I can learn from you! Kindest personal regards,
    Elaine
