Greetings! Although I studied International Development in college and completed two years toward a Master of International Affairs degree at Columbia University's School for International and Public Affairs, I have spent the past twenty years teaching and tutoring my own children through their elementary and high school years. As testimony of my success, my oldest just completed his first year of college, making straight A's as a computer programming major. Now I would like to use my teaching skills to help others succeed.
In college I also received a minor in music, taking voice, piano, sight singing, and music theory. During the past ten years I have had the privilege to lead church choirs, both with children and adults.
My strengths are in English -- writing, spelling, grammar, and literature; elementary math and algebra; and I can also help in other subjects such as science, history, and classical literature. I especially enjoy working with foreign students, having grown up in a foreign country myself. It would bring me great joy to work alongside you or your child to help you succeed in your educational pursuits.
