Teacher: Since the late 1970's, in both public and private schools, and to hundreds of students between grades K-12, I have taught math, English, reading and literature, phonics, history, science and health. Whether it be a large single graded classroom or a one room school house, I am able to help my students progress from their current abilities and succeed in school. I possess a lifetime teaching certificate from the state of Texas and have held certificates with the state of Washington, the Association of Christian Schools International, and a specialized license from Russia. I look forward to working with your child.
Administrator: Along with my teaching experience, I also worked as a principal and administrator for over 10 years. I have extensive experience with accounting systems (especially QuickBooks), computer programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, FileMaker), and web site development. Applying my teaching experience to my administrative experience gives me the tools to offer business tutoring where you may need it the most. I look forward to working with your employees and business associates.

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.
My elementary education qualifications include: teaching certificates from the state of Texas (lifetime and current, endorsements: elementary education 1-8, history 1-8), the state of Washington (elementary education K-8, history 4-12), and the Association of Christian Education (elementary education 1-8).

My teaching career extends back to 1979 when I started as a PE teacher for a private Christian school. In the following years, I taught all core subjects for grades two through twelve in Oregon, Washington, Texas, and Russia. These were primarily small, private schools, but I spent two years in a public school near San Antonio, Texas.
