About Tami

As a mature educator with a Bachelor's degree in education and 14 years of classroom and private teaching experience, I can serve as that encouraging "adjunct family member" to calm your child's insecurities. Together we can break through their struggles to experience academic success.

I have a bachelor's degree in Music Education. I taught elementary general music and middle school and high school choral music for 11 years in public schools.

If you're looking for a warm, encouraging educator for your child, contact me! I have a knack for connecting to my student's areas of passion or interest and then pairing that with their academic needs to make schooling more fun.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I have a thorough knowledge of the Bible as I've been studying it personally for 40 years. I graduated from a Christian college where I took Bible classes. I participate in women's Bible studies throughout the year and attend a Bible teaching church every week.
I will work with students to complete homeschool Bible class, college Bible classes, or just for personal biblical growth.

General Music

I have a bachelor's degree in Music Education. I taught elementary general music and middle school and high school choral music for 11 years in public schools.
I am available to assist a struggling high school music student to catch up, a student preparing to major in music in college or someone currently taking a college music theory course.

Music History

I have a bachelor's degree in Music education. I studied music history in my undergraduate classes. I taught elementary general music and middle school and high school choral music for 11 years in public schools.
I am available to assist a struggling high school music student to catch up, a student preparing to major in music in college or someone currently taking a college music history course.

Phonics

For several months I have been tutoring using the Barton Reading and Spelling System by Susan Barton. This is a highly acclaimed program based on the Orton-Gillingham Phonics theories.
I am working towards a special certification with Barton to be completed by December 2016. I can put these excellent tools to work to help you improve your reading and spelling abilities, bringing grades up within weeks.

Sewing

I have 40 years of sewing experience making clothing, building costumes, upholstering/slip-covering furniture, and creating window treatments and other decorating pieces. Working with sewing patterns or creating my own, I have constructed a wide variety of sewn articles.
Any student desiring hands-on, one-on-one guidance with sewing skills would benefit from my expertise in this area.

Social Studies

In my student teaching experiences, in substitute assignments, and with my current tutoring students, I have several years of experience teaching elementary school social studies. I am a history buff and enjoy the subject.
I would love to help bring history to life with the passion I bring to each session.
