    Please allow this letter to serve as an inquiry for the available project you are looking to get accomplished. My experience as a writer, lecturer and research analyst make me confident of being the perfect candidate to help you achieve exactly what you are looking for. I have acquired an MSc. in Business Management degree from the renowned university “The University of Sheffield”. Furthermore, I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Rochester Institute of Technology in Applied Arts and Science (concentrations in Business Management, Economics and Statistics). During the course of my studies I have gained knowledge in many different areas such as management skills, economic environment, interpersonal communication and leadership. Furthermore, studies in Human Resources and Accounting for Managers have given me strong base for the respective fields. Attending various conferences and programs on energy, startup business and democracy related issues, has expanded my horizon of understanding the domestic environment as well as being aware of what is going on in the region and around the world. My experience of working as a project coordinator for MDA(Management Development Associates www.seemda.com). has equipped me with a strong base in managing various tasks including facilitating focus groups for strategy development and the preparations of financial reports. Currently I teach management classes at a private college. Besides teaching I am also the head of the library where I lead a team of 3 professionals in managing the library, sorting, updating new issues etc. If given the opportunity I am eager to discuss my potential contribution to your project.  less

    Do you need someone to Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate (ADDIE Method) training courses? Do you want to make sure your learners get the most out of those courses, and that you are getting the best result possible for your dollars spent? You need me. I have degrees in marketing (B.Sc.) and education (M.A.), and am a current part time doctoral (Ed.D.) student where my area of research is on maximizing long-term learning outcomes from training programs. This gives me a strong foundation of math, statistics, research methodology, and teaching pedagogy to build on. I have a strong publication and conference presentation history, and I am happy to share my knowledge of learning pedagogy and materials development with anyone. I also have a proven history of materials development, having published more than 20 textbooks used in millions of lessons every year. I have trained thousands of employees in skills such as business communication, regulatory compliance, technology usage, adult learning pedagogy, and even retail sales. I started my teaching career in Japan, and soon became a lecturer at Waseda University. There, I really developed as a teacher and learned firsthand that results-oriented teaching was best. As I got better at teaching and knew more about pedagogy, I started getting hired as a consultant for various companies in Japan. I was able to bring great success to all my projects, and soon was consulting for Global Fortune 500 companies such as Nissan, Nippon Steel, and Teijin Pharmaceuticals. I always approached each client’s situation with open eyes and a solid understanding of how people learn. Years later I was given a chance to lead a massive retraining initiative for a chain of schools in Japan called Gaba, which involved the creation of an entirely new blended learning curriculum, the introduction of the first online learning tools used there, and the training of more than a thousand teachers in how to use these new online tools and materials. This required extensive data collection, assessment, and description. I worked every day with both front-line teachers and senior leadership to achieve the learning outcomes we needed. After two years, the teaching and learning had improved greatly, and the new curriculum was working well. I then decided to return to the USA. Most recently, I was working for the U.S. Department of Defense, developing and presenting employee training in adult learning theory, learning materials development, and eLearning tool usage. There, I created offline and eLearning materials for employee education programs, and worked with subject matter experts to create software usage and regulatory compliance workshops for teachers.  less
