Bio

Hi, I graduated from the BEHS honors program with honors. As a science major I had a 3.9 GPA at CofC and then received a BS degree from MUSC. I raised 3 children and my youngest graduated from BEHS with honors. She is a junior at CofC with 3 semesters on the President's honor roll and academic scholarships. My youngest son left being a chef to work on a Masters electrician degree. My oldest son went to CofC and is a GM at Yeaman's Hall. They are all avid readers because I taught them to...

Hi, I graduated from the BEHS honors program with honors. As a science major I had a 3.9 GPA at CofC and then received a BS degree from MUSC. I raised 3 children and my youngest graduated from BEHS with honors. She is a junior at CofC with 3 semesters on the President's honor roll and academic scholarships. My youngest son left being a chef to work on a Masters electrician degree. My oldest son went to CofC and is a GM at Yeaman's Hall. They are all avid readers because I taught them to love reading and to become lifelong learners. Children who excel at reading are more successful. I believe children need STEAM for the future. I love working with children and would be honored to help your child find the path to academic success. Most of my students are receiving lessons in English/ reading, science and math, but I can tutor any subject. I tutor math for prep-4. My passions are art and science. I am able to use zoom, but prefer in person if possible. I am patient working with students with ADHD and dyslexia.

As a science major, I have a strong science background in Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics, and Organic Chemistry. My science degree from the Medical University of SC is a highly specialized degree which combines medicine, science and technology. I started a Mad science program at our school and volunteered as the assistant for 4 years because I believe science is important.

I am an exhibiting artist as a juried artist with the Charleston Artist Guild and was a member of the Courtyard Gallery until they closed. I have been juried into local and National competitions. My passion is pastels and graphite drawings. I believe creativity helps people learn to express themselves, is therapeutic, and helps them become good problem solvers.

I am patient and believe in kindness and having fun while accomplishing goals. If you are struggling with your classes, I can help you enjoy learning and improve your grades. Please message me for a lesson and experience how I can help you improve your grades.

Drawing

I was taught art by Dianne Tennyson. I am expert in pastel painting and graphite pencil drawings. I love painting landscapes. I am a juried member of the Charleston Artist Guild, and the APS regional guild. I have been a juried member in local and national exhibits and competitions. My artwork hung in the Courtyard Gallery until it closed. I can teach basic and advanced drawing skills and pastels techniques. I assisted art classes at Charleston Catholic School as a volunteer for 2 years. I enjoy working with younger children most.

Homeschool

I have several years of experience homeschooling, including my youngest child for 3 years then tutored her in homework through 8th grade and honors/ AP science courses at BEHS. I taught her study skills and methods to be successful with grades, academic honors and obtain high test scores. I taught all my children to be proficient readers which helped them academically and in standard tests. I worked full-time with my sons but I tutored them in homework in K-6. Reading, writing, and creativity are keys to academic success that I can help best with.
