Bio

This is my tutoring credo: I deeply enjoy challenging others to find learning as gratifying as I do. I believe in encouragement, affirmation, earned praise and -- whenever possible -- injecting a healthy dose of humor. I always listen to my students to learn from them what their needs are and craft my tutoring style around their learning style.

This is my tutoring credo: I deeply enjoy challenging others to find learning as gratifying as I do. I believe in encouragement, affirmation, earned praise and -- whenever possible -- injecting a healthy dose of humor. I always listen to my students to learn from them what their needs are and craft my tutoring style around their learning style.

I specialize in working with high school and college students. History and English are my favorite core subjects. While an undergraduate at the University of Washington I tutored with Student Athlete Services, working with a variety of athletes in many subjects. I created extracurricular tests and quizzes that were then incorporated into what the Services offered.

I have degrees in Music and Theater and have finished half my MFA in Costume Design. I worked in the classroom in a variety of positions in Seattle Schools. I taught high school subjects in Los Angeles for ten years. I have been a high school teacher for Albuquerque Public Schools for three years. I have been a professional tutor for five years.

Sewing

Sewing

I began sewing when I was 5 years old. I sewed many clothes for myself and others from junior high through college and beyond. I took on my first costuming project with Bathhouse Theater (Seattle), and progressed to shows with Spectrum Dance Theater (Seattle), and the University of Washington undergraduate and graduate dance programs. I graduated from the University of Washington with a BA in Theater, emphasis in Costume Design. In 1995 I moved to Los Angeles to participate in the MFA Costume Design program on full scholarship at California Institute of the Arts. I have since worked in building and designing costumes for Universal Studios Hollywood theme park, independent films, and an award-winning stage musical. I specialize in working with beginning to intermediate sewers. Sewing has taught me patience, perseverance, and creative problem-solving. Sewing clothes or other projects for yourself or others, knowing you have handmade something that is unique and 'tailor-made' -- for far less than handing it over to a professional -- can be really satisfying.
