Experienced, credentialed elementary teacher with English minor and homeschool mother of 6 kids is available for tutoring and homeschool assistance. Local to Orange County. Biblical world view and has a heart to nurture kids in an encouraging atmosphere.
As a homeschool teacher of my own kids, I have always enjoyed engaging them while instructing them. Getting and keeping their attention is easier when we work one on one or one on two. Also, it is fun to teach to their individual learning styles and work to find approches that motivate and interest them. We are always looking for fresh and creative ways to make learning fun! I have a huge supply of learning games and hands-on tools to enrich my teaching times.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
At first I like to meet and get to know my students. It is nice to learn a little about what they are interested in, what their learning experience has been, and what their academic needs are. I would like to meet with parents to hear what their requests and concerns are and work together to come up with a plan for goals and ideas to motivate my students to enjoy learning and make progress toward their personal best!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I taught elementary school for 6 years in grades 2, 4/5, and 6. In addition I have homeschooled my own 6 children for the past 23 years. My oldest three are either graduated from college or currently completing their degrees. I received my B.A from Westmont College in Santa Barbara and earned my California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from Concordia Univeristy in Irvine.
I have been involved in Homeschool support groups for the past 23 years and enjoy coming alongside other parents as they look for ways to encourage their kids to learn.
