As a University Instructor and Doctoral Candidate with twenty years of experience teaching children and adults with varying abilities and learning styles, I am comfortable with a broad range of subject matter and curricula and can easily adapt either to accommodate individual learning needs. I have experience working with young children in early education as well as elementary, high school and college students. In the past, I have worked one on one, in group settings, and in the home school setting.

I especially enjoy teaching exceptional students, those with special needs as well as those who are advanced learners. I believe that learning is a relational accomplishment and appreciate the importance encouragement, enthusiasm and support play in the learning process.
