About Jo

A life-long student, I find joy in sharing my love of learning with others. My B.A. was in Technical Theater (design and stage managing) with minors in English and History. My M.A. focused solely on Southwest History, particularly New Mexico History, with a minor in Anthropolgy in the same area.

I've taught or tutored elementary, middle and high school students as well as non-credit, college level courses. I also worked in marketing/public relations, law, and magzine publishing, so my experience with the written word is fairly broad and real-world oriented.

My greatest reward? When I was told by two different students that they had never liked history until they took my class, that they were going to begin reading history on their own.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Public Speaking

I coached debate team, and participated in public speaking contests while in high school. I have lectured on various topics, primarily history, all my life. I have taught college level non- credit classes for 10 years, and taught Elderhostel classes for 8 years. I have been a professional tourism guide for 3 years. I have been a professional storyteller/lecturer since 1988 and continue to do so. My venues have included: docent classes at the Palace of the Governors, Santa Fe; children's story times at Santa Fe bookstores; Vecinos lecture at Pojoaque Pueblo; story telling at El Rancho de las Golondrinas, Santa Fe. These are a few examples from a much larger list which is available upon request.
