Bio

I enjoy figuring out how students learn and seeing them empowered with new understanding. I am a lifelong learner myself, and I like to help children-and older- reach their full potential. In public schools I have taught classroom general music as well as small group special education classes of students with learning disabilities. I have also taught private lessons in many different settings including English as a second language, German, piano, and woodwind lessons. Yes, I have a lifetime...

I enjoy figuring out how students learn and seeing them empowered with new understanding. I am a lifelong learner myself, and I like to help children-and older- reach their full potential. In public schools I have taught classroom general music as well as small group special education classes of students with learning disabilities. I have also taught private lessons in many different settings including English as a second language, German, piano, and woodwind lessons. Yes, I have a lifetime habit of learning and I have always enjoyed teaching others new skills. All of my teaching shows my creative side-music, art, and writing- which I like to apply to my teaching.

Sometimes students need an individualized approach and a few special strategies outside of the classroom to pick up their academic skills. I am not sold on any one teaching method, but I constantly evaluate the student's skill level, special interests, and learning style while working with him or her. All students need to feel successful in school and love learning, so I strive to provide the extra help to inspire them to excellent work.

The two master's degrees which I have completed were writing and reading intensive at a demanding level. My MA in Biblical Studies from Denver Seminary required the writing of a 140 page thesis. I have two published books: "Bold Girls of the Bible" and "The New Perspective on Mary and Martha," both published by Wipf & Stock in Eugene, OR. (Cannot italicize the titles!) All of this writing was accomplished with the constant input of professors and editors from which I learned to write at a professional level.

Contact me for extra school help if you live in the Lowry or Hilltop area. I will first meet you at the Schlessman library or across Quebec in the coffee shop. Piano lessons would be at my house, or perhaps your house if it is close.

I look forward to meeting you and discussing your learning concerns.
