I am a certified general and advanced tutor with the College Reading and Language Association. My AA in Administration of Justice was earned in June 2005 and I passed the CBEST then as well. I taught high school: Biology, Chemistry, Algebra II, Geometry, and English from 2008-2011 with a local charter school. Homeschooling my five sons has been a huge part of my life for the past 19 years, as well as teaching various homeschooling classes of 12-24 students for the past 14. From 2005-2008, I substituted in three, local private schools. Currently, I privately tutor, teach homeschool classes to high school students, am a principal for a local private homeschool, and am working on my bachelor's in Biology. I also have experience working with special needs children!

The greatest thing about teaching and tutoring is being able to help a student "get it", fully understand a topic they are struggling with. It is also a joy to instill a love for learning in them, even for chemistry!

Thanks for looking!

Approved subjects

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
