Mia G
Applications Instructor

Mia’s love for teaching was first established in the 5th grade. She had the opportunity to help her teacher with a lesson plan and found out she was a natural. Decades later, she joined the New Horizons team as an Office Coordinator. Here her passion for teaching began stirring again, and the rest is history! Since 2008, Mia has taught thousands of students and worked with local Las Vegas companies to implement their training programs. Her specialties cover Microsoft Office, SQL and Database, and Workplace Fundamentals, including Time Management, Communication Skills, Customer Service, and much more. As a bilingual instructor. In the classroom, Mia blends 70% real world and 30% theoretical concepts to provide students a variety of learning examples. Something Mia prides herself on, “You will always have examples and exercises not in the text book.” Before joining New Horizons, Mia designed an online training system and curriculum for a startup company in Health Care Management. She can be found frequently working on consulting projects with clients outside the classroom. “The best compliment I ever received was a student asking how they could request me for their next course!”
TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

“I engage student constantly by using their names and asking many participatory questions of each individual, doing so evenly and frequently, which ensures they pay attention and feel engaged. I openly admit that I’m cheesy and incorporate that shtick to make them laugh, and I ask for them to verbally give me “Eureka moments.”
