About Rhonda

Hello,
My name is Rhonda and I have lived in the Memphis area for about 17 years. I was born in Ft. Bragg, NC, and have also lived in FL, MO, VA, and KY. I have two degrees in anthropology from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) and Washington University in St. Louis. I was raised in Nashville and Miami and have a very cosmopolitan view of life due to the very diverse population of people I grew up with. I was very active in high school, was voted "Best Personality", and graduated with honors. I played several instruments in the band and wind ensemble. I went to UF on an academic scholarship and worked as a substitute teacher and teacher for a short while after graduation. I began my career in anthropology at a historic site in Virginia and later became the assistant director of the Black Cultural Center at Vanderbilt University. I have extensive experience working in museums and have worked at the St. Louis Art Museum, National Civil Rights Museum, and the Pink Palace Museum, to name a few. I also taught anthropology at the college level. I am the mother of two college students who attend UT-Knoxville and MTSU in Murfreesboro, TN. Education has always been a very important aspect of my life. I feel it is important to stress academics early on in a child's life, before they actually begin school. I have worked with children of all ages as well as teens and adults, due to the various positions I've held. During the summer of 2005, I developed a free summer cultural enrichment program which lead to my employment at the YMCA where I worked for 7 years. I held the position of site director of a before/after school program, summer camp supervisor, and later as a full time child care director. I enjoy working with students and have done so on many levels. I hope to encourage students to excel in all aspects of their lives, not just academically. I am sort of a "jack of all trades", I guess you can say. l know a little bit about many things. My sisters affectionately call me the "Doc". Hopefully I can draw from my experiences and help you and/or your child become the best you/they can be.

History, social studies, social science, genealogy, anthropology/archaeology and African American studies are my favorite subjects but I can also help you with music (clarinet) general music, English, grammar, spelling, writing, and basic science. I also enjoying sewing and quilting as well as scrapbooking, which are not subjects offered through this site, but fun! I also study pop culture and try to stay on top of cultural trends. I have a very flexible schedule during the week and free on select Saturdays. If you cannot study in your home I don't mind meeting you at a quiet place such as a library or any other place you may find conducive to study. I look forward to meeting you and learning along with you. We all have gifts and talents to share!
