I am excited to share my extensive experience as a student, professional, teacher, and parent - all of which lends me a unique insight into the needs of students no matter what their stage in academic and career development. I hold a Master's degree in Applied Geography and am the GIS team lead for Army Strategic Command; I have advanced skills in GIS, digital cartography, and environmental studies. I also minored in English, have exemplary skills in grammar and critical analysis, and am a published writer.
My teaching experience includes peer tutoring and graduate-level English courses at the University of Colorado's Writing Center, as well as adjunct faculty positions with Pikes Peak Community College and the University of Colorado. Sample courses taught include Remote Sensing, Physical Geology, and Geographic Writing. I have also been a guest lecturer at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA. Having raised three children, I have plenty of experience helping them through the hurdles of homework and college preparatory exams, to include both the SAT and ACT.
My evening and weekend availability is very flexible, and knowing how last-minute disasters can derail a schedule, I offer a lenient 8-hour cancellation policy with makeup sessions. I can conduct lessons in your home, a nearby library, a coffee shop - wherever the student is most comfortable. I also encourage regular feedback so I can consistently succeed in meeting your goals. I look forward to hearing from you, and will respond to inquiries promptly!
