I have a bachelor's in business management and served as a military officer for seven years. As a home-schooling mother I have been teaching for the past thirteen years. Not only have I taught my own children but I have mentored several others in co-ops I have joined for various subjects and skill sets. However, it is in the math field that I feel I might offer the most help since there seems to be such fear of the subject in so many families and there doesn't need to be. I have experience in various math curricula including those using manipulatives as well as others that rely on more traditional methods. I have found it is usually a mixture of both that must be fine tuned to meet each student's needs. I have always enjoyed mathematics and particularly enjoy the smile on a student's face when a concept is finally understood.
All of my children intend to attend a four year college. My two oldest have both been awarded various scholarships; one begins his second year in civil engineering and the other will begin college this fall. I hope I can be of help to your child!
