Tarrant County college
I'm a mother of 7 sons. I have been home educating my sons for 23 years. Some needed math manipulatives and others needed to practice counting sequences. Four of my sons have been given diplomas at home and two of those have college degrees. My high school and college electives included Spanish, German, Accounting, Senior Grammar, Sign Language, Dorothy Shaw Hand Bell Choir, and extra math and science courses. While at Tarrant County College, I was paid to tutor a math student and have assisted other students with math. Beyond college I have studied square dancing and ballet. I studied World History in chronological order and basic Latin and Greek root words to teach my sons. I have attended Texas Wesleyan annual free law school day a few times. For several years I have worked as a clerk or election judge in Tarrant County and have attended many training courses for the elections. I am an appointed election judge for the City of Forest Hill, but this job is only active on the rare election days. I am currently in my hand bell choir alumni group and am memorizing music again. For over six years, I worked for Greenway Enterprises, Inc. as a secretary/bookkeeper until I had my first son. Currently, my husband and I are teaching a review of basic square dance lessons and we participate in an advanced dance group. I have assisted a blind woman with shopping for more than 20 years.

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.
I always enjoyed math and was allowed to take Algebra 1 in middle school. I graduated from Paschal High School with honors and was an honor student for 4 semesters at Tarrant County College.
I was an honor student in high school and in my 4 semesters at college. In high school, I elected to study Spanish, German, Senior Grammar, Accounting, Sign Language, music and extra math and science courses. I began home educating my first son 23 years ago and have taught all seven sons phonics and spelling with the Abecca Company phonics handbook, workbooks and readers. I have taught all of them math through Algebra 2. I purchased a volume of the timelines of World History and taught my sons world history in chronological order drawing from several history books. Four of my sons have received their high school diplomas from me and two of them now have college degrees from the University of Texas.
I was allowed to skip a grade of math in middle school and take Algebra in 8th grade. I was an honor student in high school where my electives included Spanish, German, Trigonometry, Accounting, Chemistry and Physics. I was also an honor student the 4 semesters I attended Tarrant County College.
I enjoy the study of language and have taken Spanish, German and American Sign Language. I also have books that teach Greek and Latin roots of the English language--this improves spelling and vocabulary.
I have taught all seven of my sons to read in my home school using the Abecca phonics handbook and Abecca readers. Currently, I am tutoring another child using the same handbook. I have taught four of my sons through high school graduation and two of those sons now have college degrees.
When I attended middle school, I did well enough in math to be allowed to take Algebra 1 in 8th grade. In high school, I took the required Geometry course and then took the elective Algebra 2 and Trigonometry courses.
