Lively, engaging, thorough educator seeks open, energetic, committed students with whom to work towards proficiency in their studies. In particular, I love the arts and history, as well as beginning maths and sciences. I have a strong background in teaching people of all ages the things they want and need to know, and how to use them.

I have worked with early childhood classes, taught in classrooms from the elementary to the university level, and given private music and dance instruction. I have also taught workshops on the local and national level, and created conference papers, PowerPoints and Excel charts and graphs for peer-reviewed journals and books in both the sciences and the humanities.

I continue to research, write, and present on the medieval French and American colonial liturgical arts, working with early manuscripts and colonial gravestones, among other things. I also have a strong background in elementary science and math preparation. I have taught classes and private ESL students in English, math, and citizenship studies, and have coached books and dissertations to completion as well.

I'm very good at figuring out what learning strategies work for individual students and enjoy watching them grow in their own capacity to absorb and understand new things. I will make sure you really understand the material, and I will listen to your concerns, hopes and dreams for the sessions that we share together.

I look forward to meeting and working with you!
