I love to see a person light up when they finally understand that concept that has been a stumbling block for them. In my years of teaching in public and private schools (K-8), in my years at home as a mom, and through all the rest of the time I've spent working, it has given me great joy to be able to explain the "why" to people so they can "get it", whether I'm teaching kids or adults.
I've spent about 5 years teaching in the classroom: several years as a substitute covering everything imaginable, and two and a half years as a combined 5th/6th grade teacher in a Christian school. I have also tutored children from 2nd grade through high-school ages in reading, English grammar, and mathematics. I'll work with you to help you understand whatever it is that's giving you trouble.
On the computer side, I have been using Adobe InDesign CS4 to produce newsletters, worship bulletins, and print advertisements for my church for several years (about 10 years' experience, including older programs). I've even helped a friend put together two books for publication. To put it in some perspective, how's this: I met my husband online and moved across the country to be with him without the benefit of any dating sites -- I think it was before e-harmony even existed!
