I'm a seasoned professional with over 20 years of experience. I am a lifelong learner, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. I have some teaching experience. As a tutor, I tailor my teaching to what students want and need to know. I use lots of examples. I'm patient, and I encourage students to ask lots of questions. I've raised two children with different learning styles. My youngest is currently a sophomore in high school.
I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and Anthropology from Swarthmore College, with a teaching certification in Secondary Social Studies. After graduation I joined the Peace Corps and taught English as a Foreign Language to middle and high school students for two years in Guider, Cameroon. After returning to the U.S., I earned graduate degrees from the Graduate School of Education at Harvard University (Ed.M, Ed.D), where my graduate coursework focused primarily on planning, policy, statistics, research design and data analysis . I am also a certified Project Management Professional, and a certified SAS Programmer (Base Level Certification, Version 9).
I lived and attended school in Florence, Italy for 8 years and am fluent in Italian. I studied French in school and in college, and became fluent when I worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer in West Africa.
My computer skills include SAS Programming, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook), and Photoshop Elements.
My other interests include reading, photography, cycling, genealogy, and a variety of needle and paper crafts.
