I begin my career with a physical education degree. My first job led me to develop coaching experience in gymnastics, volleyball, cheerleaders and drill team. But I also taught tennis and helped students there. I was told by the students they learned a lot while still having fun. So I really like to teach and help people learn. Then I went back to school and acquired a BA in business and an accounting degree. Accountants were needed and was hired and worked for 9-10 months at an accounting firm at which I became an inactive CPA, expired now. After learning accounting well and working 50-60 hours a week, I took a ten year leave and went to Washington, D.C., for seven months with my family. I set up own college accounting tutoring business and soon was tutoring students at several community colleges in financial and managerial accounting. We eventually returned to Seattle, where I substitute at three schools in physical education, business, financial and managerial accounting. I also worked temporary, at several accounting firms but I enjoyed communicating and helping students learn.

There are many ways to communicate to others, and I want the students to enjoy learning and have fun as they increase their knowledge. I am very patient with the students and just seeing the students improve with understanding taking place is great. If one education method doesn't work, and I see the student isn't learning or is confused, I will certainly try other methods until there is success.

Algebra 1

Superb at explaining details and expert knowledge of Algebra 1-2


I was taught sewing at an early age and sewed most of my school clothes. At first with my mothers' help and then by myself. I would be glad to give a free first lesson to make sure I am teaching enough sewing to a student.


I was a physical ed. instructor for over 8 years. I have taught many students how to play tennis; from beginners to advanced. First divided the class/into what level they thought they were. Many students were beginners; so taught them 1st how to hold the racket, how to stand and be ready for the ball, hit the ball directly so it went straight and turn themselves to be ready for the next ball. Then as they hit back and forth with my help, I taught them how to turn themselves to be ready for a backhand hit. Of course if the ball goes on that side. The grip may or may not have to be changed, depending on if they use a two handed grip on the racket. But I explained the two handed grip to them if they wanted to use it. I also instructed them also how to turn their hand to use a backhand grip and keep the racket steady and swing straight. I also taught the players how to move on the court, what the lines were, and to always face the net, racket up, knees bent and be ready for the ball. If they could hit back and forth to each other 5-8 times I would teach them the serve. Of course how to score would be included. If they were intermediate players, I would go over the serve, the volley and their readiness for the ball. I would make sure they understood how to score and if they hit back and forth to each other continually I would have them play doubles and work on placing the ball where they wanted, harder hits and using the volley to their advantage. The expert players I would let them play tennis in singles or doubles, placing the ball more accurately and using the volley and serve to their advantage. Also if they needed help I would be there. Tournaments and prizes would be included too.


I was a volleyball coach for a couple of years at a high school. I also coached and helped others learn the game through a temporary teaching job. The skills I taught them were: setting to each other, the bump used in returns, the serve, the spike, layout and team strategy. Also I encouraged the students to have fun while learning, as there are many drills to do that.
